“Agape – Immaculate Love”
Matallics, acrylic
90cm x 120cm portrait

Agape – is Greek for the Love of the Divine used in the New Testament to denote the Love of God or Christ for humanity. It can also define our own special Love for the divine, the highest and most noble of Loves, A self-sacrificing love and devotion. When we move onto states of love and gratitude, we naturally move into deep states of mind-heart coherence, the space from which healing on mind, body and spirit level can all naturally take place.
This piece was painted live during “plant music” healing, sound-baths that were part of the “Plant Songs” Fringe Festival art installation.
This piece embodies the Unending Love of the Divine Beloved, the Supreme Creator. This love is never ending and is always flowing no matter where we are in creation. There is no word in the English language that encompasses what this love really is. However, the concept of Compassion more truly summarizes this true divine love.
C S Lewis described Agape as “a selfless love that is passionately committed to the well-being of others.” Compassion is Loving-Kindness in Action. It’s not a passive love. It is an act, love in action. It also embers one with the ability to endure the long suffering of this world and be there eternally in service to humanity & God.
Nothing can extinguish the love that comes through compassion. It’s a flame that burns with love for all things, all creatures, all realms, all dimension, ALL THAT IS! An example is the bodhisattva Quan Yin; the who heard the cries of the world. She vowed she would not ascend beyond this Earth until every single person had attained enlightenment and grown beyond suffering.
