"Love is an active state of being"

Density Matrix , 70x90 cm; Paper, Mixed Media, 2020

/This painting is of a moment of creation. Creation is love. Universe is love.

A: Please, share the love story that inspires you / happened to you

G: The most awe inspiring and humbling moments of experiencing love in my life with another person were moments of witnessing deep truth. Truth that is so present and powerful that it breaks you open. Witnessing people being in their truth at this level is life changing. If a person can create art, make love, communicate, or even just be in silence in this intense truth of the moment the whole universe obeys him or her in that instance. It’s the most beautiful thing to witness.

A: What is love?

G: Love is an active state of being, an inner openness to experience life fully, to face each moment exactly as it is without judgement. It is also an invitation to soften, to be at ease, to heal.

A: Where does love live?

G: Love is. It is always available, it never goes away , it never runs out. We have many dysfunctional ideas and habits that gives us an illusion that love is not here. But the more we work through the conditioning of the mind and the traumas of the body the more we find ourselves in the eternal bliss of love that just is, unaffected by anything, uninterrupted by anything and encompassing everything.

A: Your wish to readers

G: I would like to share a Ram Das quote that invites us towards a life of love: “I would like my life to be a statement of love and compassion--and where it isn't, that's where my work lies.” Ram Das
