Johannus Boots', Latest Work

She stands defiant in her understanding and belief that nothing can harm her and that the wave of fear, which is constantly projected in our lives by the corporate-media and governments is only an illusion. With this confidence and belief, a portal opens to a brighter path of self-awareness.

"All matter is merely energy
condensed to a slow vibration,
we are all one consciousness
experiencing itself subjectively.
There's no such thing as death,
life is only a dream,
and we are the imagination of ourselves."
Bill Hicks

  1. A wonderful image projecting such a powerful message! It reminds me of poet Marianne Williamson's piece:

    Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
    Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
    It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
    We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
    Actually, who are you not to be?
    You are a child of God.
    Your playing small does not serve the world.
    There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
    We are all meant to shine, as children do.
    We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
    It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
    And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other permission to do the same.

  2. Thank you Diana for sharing this insightful poem.

    Johannus's does some magnificent work and he stepped out from his usual style of expression to produce this work.

    There is someone out there, who has her name written all over this painting, for it is the story of her life.
