Life's a Beach (Diptych)
This is a set of two paintings in the Life’s a Beach series.
Life’s a Beach was inspired by Maharishi Yogi belief that the ocean is an analogy for the
mind. He compared the waves to our thoughts and the depths of the ocean to the silent
transcendental level of our mind. The process of transcending is like a wave settling into
the vastness of the sea.
The most settled state of our mind – pure consciousness – is not a flat, empty silence but a
dynamic field flowing within itself. The Yogi believed that coming out refreshed and
rejuvenated from an ocean swim is a small step towards attainment of wholeness in Being.
