God's Art And Colours
The colour green gives me
And the beauty of
The colour blue tells me:
"My child, just think of me,
Play with Me-
And I shall bring Infinity's Bliss
Into your heart."
The colour red tells me:
"My child, you need me
For the purification of your mind-
For the destruction of the uncomely things
That do not want to change.
The colour white tells me:
"My child, the purity that you need
In your mind
I shall give you in abundant measure.
The insecurity, jealousy, doubt
And suspicion that you have-
I am going to wipe them out for good!"
The colour gold tells me:
"My child, your life-breath
Is not made of dust.
Your life-breath is made of gold-
My Immortality's Gold.
You must treasure your ever awakening
God-climbing and God-fulfilling
They say, "Art for art's sake."
I say, "Art is not for art's sake-
Art is for God's sake."
When we say, "Art for art's sake,"
Our mind binds
Both the Creator and the Creation,
All at once.
When we say, "Art for God's sake,"
We connect our art
With God the Infinite, God the Eternal,
And God the Immortal.
Then we see Infinity, Eternity
This triune Reality
Conversing, singing and dancing
Right before our vision-eye.
