Transition Grid is as much a metaphor as
it is a painting, a metaphor about our conscious awareness
of the wholeness that we are.
We limit ourselves to a fairly narrow band
of awareness, apparently by necessity or for comfort until
ready or forced into an expansion. Movement into our largeness
appears to be directional - into the "higher or lower"
Movement toward the "higher" self
reveals the existence of the puzzle qualities of life which
becomes less solidified and more amorphous farther from
our accustomed "band of consciousness"
Movement toward the "lower" self
reveals a denser, darker realm that eventually disappears
- into the "higher" self.
Does it really matter which way we expand?
I think not, if we take it far enough to reveal our whole
self and not remain stuck somewhere in the instructional
duality of our lightness and darkness.
