The Hand of …


As we are all moving through the uncharted waters of a new pandemic, each and every one of us faces unique sets of challenges; as unique as the human enigma is.
May you all have the piece of mind to follow your Pole star to calmer seas and times.

About this creation: there is a continued discussion about the use of my (creator) thoughts behind any given creation.
My view has been and continues to be that is of no significance towards the quality of the interaction caused by art.

One note though; there is an increasingly strong phenomenon where an opinion, thesis, is not only asked but demanded so that the “sport” named “if you are not with us, you are against us” is satisfied.
Just because something is not given when it is asked, doesn’t mean it is absent.

I hope you will find your meaning in this creation.
I will leave you with two passages, the first from Tao Te Ching, and the other from the creation Qué Dios

  • Those who know do not talk.
    Those who talk do not know.Keep your mouth closed.
    Guard your senses.
    Temper your sharpness.
    Simplify your problems.
    Mask your brightness.
    Be at one with the dust of the earth.
    This is primal union.
  • Dios mueve al jugador, y éste, la pieza.
    ¿Qué Dios detrás de Dios la trama empieza de polvo y tiempo y sueño y agonías?
    (God moves the player, and he, the piece.
    Which god behind God begets the plot of dust and time and dream and agonies? )

About Spira

” The eternal part of our being is conscious of the timeless essence of life & is aware that the past is nothing but a memento of the present and tomorrow a dream of the now. The very thing meditating & singing from within, remains always inside the boundaries of the primordial instant that scattered the stars into the cosmos.” Kh.Gibran

  1. Absolutely stunning, my friend. I am always impressed with your creative output, if possible maybe add a Twitter share to your blog as I would be very happy to share your work with others. Stay safe and have a great Sunday. 🙂

  2. Wonderful sentiments and I like much the passage from the ancient work of Tao Te Ching.
    And Ah… now I see a kind of “gift” following the sneak peek you provided a while back. We are all acorns. We come from a fire and roots. Hands give, and we extend our own hands.
    Beautiful piece and congrats on giving it its light and warmth – it sort of glows.
    The top piece feather is as bold as it is fragile.
    The creativity stays strong here!

  3. I see the sun carrying God’s consciousness in physical form and carrying humanity in prayer on one side of a coin. I wonder what’s on the other side, a recurring micronova? (I’m starting to think maybe Ben Davidson is on to something real: Not that any of us need another Armageddon to worry about, but I’m always (foolishly?) interested in trying to figure out what’s really going on.)

    Thank you for being Inspiration, Spira. 🙂

    • It’s so good to hear from you also!
      Interestingly enough, this is a creation some people find threatening. Others are in awe of the power the Hand emits.
      The archetypical inscriptions deep in our souls are for sure alive!

      Amidst the pandemic and the social/political events I’m guessing that you have your hands full.
      I hope you and your loved ones are well and coping with the situation.

      Thank you Talmage.

      • Thank you, Nick. My family is doing fine. I hope you and yours are also doing well in these difficult times.

        I don’t watch the “news,” so all the political turmoil doesn’t get to me very much. (I wouldn’t trust the media with a plastic fork.)

        Before I forget, there’s a double-blinded study out now that strongly suggests that taking vitamin D supplements will pretty-much keep us out of the ICU if we are ever hospitalized for COVID-19.

        “Our pilot study demonstrated that administration of a high dose of Calcifediol or 25-hydroxyvitamin D, a main metabolite of vitamin D endocrine system, significantly reduced the need for ICU treatment of patients requiring hospitalization due to proven COVID-19. Calcifediol seems to be able to reduce severity of the disease….”

        Stay well and inspired, Nick. We all need you.

        • Thank you for everything Talmage. We are doing fine and our best to stay that way…
          The Summit analysis is very telling towards the bradykinin hypothesis.
          Really appreciate the heads up!
          Stay safe and inspired too. We have a journey to fulfill (since we made that jump…)
