Closeup of Words on Sometimes A Diamond Forms

This painting represents personal spiritual growth that had a profoundly positive influence on my experience of life. It all began when Oprah Winfrey featured on her show a book entitled "A New Earth" by Eckhart Tolle. I just knew I had to get this book, so I did, read it voraciously and was deeply impacted by it's message. THIS book was the ONLY resource that had answered the long-held questions I had about life, people and their behaviour and how to improve my experience of it all. Tolle's teachings brought much needed peace to me. I have depicted earth layers and a diamond in the rough that has only formed after much pressure and heat to yield a rare and precious jewel... this symbolises a soul's journey through life, with all the pressure and heat we can experience we can either succumb or we can learn and grow, gaining knowledge and wisdom becoming something very rare and precious, a jewel transparent to the light.
