Joseph Campbell Said
This is a synthesis of Yoga classes where one of the goals is to pull yourself to a different place and the lecture series on Joseph Campbell, the deeply religious/spiritual mythologist who coined the phrase, "Follow your bliss." He said Motion = Time, Stillness = Eternity and God is the intersection of all lines. Painted for Amy Eyrie, an amazing yoga teacher on so many levels.

Red Triangle at the Edge of Heaven
From "Kabbalah of Creation" by Eliahu Klein:
This is the meaning of the prayer:
"I form the light and create Darkness."
The one who forms light is revealed;
as it says "create Darkness,"
for he is a veil....
After they have been revealed,
these graces return as enveloping light
in order to illuminate him in the way of Emanation,
without any veil at all.

Garden Outside the Ruins
My version of the Lion Gate of the Hittite Empire which is in modern day Turkey. However, the Hittite empire which fell apart around 1200 BCE at the end of the Bronze Age stretched all the way down to Egypt. The lions resemble bears and therefore Karmel has this painting.
