Medium: Oil on Canvas
Size: 40cm x 50cm
Are you hungry Gluttony? What shall we serve you today, what consumption will satisfy you? Is it food, money, land, power, success or someones body? Is it ever enough Gluttony? What hole do you feed, what emotion is driving this behavior, what lack sits within? Your want for more, populates your world with more grievances to rectify, more ‘stuff’ to resolve by consuming more of whatever is your fix. Where is the ‘there’ you chase? Where is the ‘more’ you want, will it ever satisfy you Gluttony?
Take heed of the witnesses, Moderation shows up and its satisfaction has no need for driven behavior. Peace is found within the now. Open the window, unlock the doors, your enough is here not there. Look with happiness on those who surround you, they bring you joy, they bring you everything and more. Refrain from “bartering in which guilt is traded back and forth, and grievances increase with each exchange.” There is no need for this, there is no lack. You are indeed purity, whole and beautiful beyond comprehension, see this as your reality, not the flesh and bones which drives you from one goal post to the next. Come with “empty hands, an open mind and heart” and let the witnesses of truth show you the Enough you are.
