Chasing Demons

Chasing Demons
  • Original

Chasing away demons, through the practice of meditation, overcoming them and standing guard at the gates of the mind. Rooting the weeds and reinforcing the gate, for they will return
in flocks and wear tempting disguises, be wary, be ready, be solid and steady, unmovable.

Context: As I overcome troubled thoughts and beliefs, I have a sensation
of relief, pleasure and enlightment. So there is no need for keeping those,
troubled, heavy thoughts in my system. Daily life can easily distract from
goals and priorities, as a reminder to be wary I created this artwork.
