On Breakthroughs and magics and my latest art

Hello lovey souls
Its already February. Ever year I feel time seems to be flying faster and faster.
During one of my tiny creative conversations I had this little chat and I had to grab a pen and paper and write it down. One of those moments.
We can keep waiting and wanting to HAVE a breakthrough but we cant HAVE it.
Because its not a thing that we can HAVE.
We got to GO through it.
GO breakthrough a barrier to discover Magic.
GO breakthrough fear to discover the magic of fearlessness
GO breakthrough a routine to discover magic of newness
GO breakthrough a ritual to discover a another magical ritual
GO breakthrough the madness to discover that magical peace
GO breakthrough the chatter to discover the magic of silence
GO breakthrough that silence to listen to a magical sound.... the sound of silence.
So we cant HAVE breakthroughs. We got to GO and BREAKTHROUGH. Sometimes the smallest of the acts make a huge difference.
So what are we going to go breakthrough this year. I shall discover soon. I love magic. And I believe in magic so its going to be an interesting journey yet again.
Meanwhile here is my latest magical breakthrough. I call it a breakthrough because I usually paint faces. This is way different than what I create and it just came through when I felt a wee bit stuck and all my mind said was just put some paint on your brush and on to the canvas. Paint anything. Just anything. I began with the roots and suddenly it just happened. Just magically. This has stories within stories about The Buddha.
The hand touching the soil is the Buddha keeping mother earth as his witness as soon as he received enlightenment during dawn (hence the sun on the right) The flowing orange robe that he adorned all his life. The seeds depicting thoughts which when given fertile ground will sprout into trees that will bear fruits and the cycle will continue. Hence the importance of the thoughts.

Original Art on Canvas board painted with acrylics.
