The Path of True Knowledge

On June 11, 2014, in Musing, Painting, by aronimus

Acolytes ride the path of true knowledge.  As they pass the great wondrous workings of nature in the form of huge palm trees, they become aware of something greater than themselves.  An awareness of the cosmos.  The path is like unto a conveyor belt.  Rather than walking the path the acolytes merely stand upon it, watching the great workings go by.  Almost like tourists…   But tourists they are not.  They have chosen the path of enlightenment.  To see beyond the everyday.  The banal.   To see the cosmos for what it is.

The Path of True Knowledge II

Acolytes ride the path of true knowledge

An earlier work by aronimus.  Conceived while taking some down time in his home town after his great roamings across South East Asia.

The Path is frequent subject matter for aronimus.  Inspired by some text from the Theosophical Society. Writings from one of the founders or early members.  Harun does not believe it was Helena Blavatsky whose daughter potentially had a support role as SS High Priestess Oberführer Marianna Blavatsky in Wolfenstein.

On recollection, it could have been Annie Besant (1847–1933), second President of The Theosophical Society from 1907 to 1933.  Harun will endeavour to find the actual quote that inspired him to make the path such a feature of his work.
