Parts of the Whole

“Parts of the Whole” was created after attending a symposium with Ilia Delio:

“The holysun
Rising over the whole earth,
Chistifying the world
Into a new day.
The news is sad and  ugly
Because we are created For beauty.
The world will be saved
By beauty.”

Ilia Delio

This painting – part of my “Kata Holos” series – expresses my stepping into and up to a new level of participation in humankind — as recent graduate of the Living School, as artist, as friend and neighbor —

As tiny speck of matter connected to and drawn ever closer to the omega point that is the source of all creation and creativity.

“Kata Holos” or catholic means belonging to and conscious of the whole. Ilia Delio, in her book “Making All Things New,” reminds us that life began with consciousness and wholeness. We emerged from something that we are part of —

That something is love.

Love is attractive and generative — and we, as persons, are attracted together and pulled forward by this love. Where we act from a divided consciousness, we are separated from this love and create a divided world.

This painting is an invitation to look within and without for every opportunity to unite with others in love.

Featured Testimonial

I have been watching Ilia's talks and reading her writings quite often. Last year I interviewed Mary Evelyn Tucker and John Grim in Beijing while they were here for an international conference. In that interview we also talked a lot about Ilia's great works not only through the Christogenesis Center, but also though her teaching and writing. One young student name Liu Zheng is planning to do a fellowship with Ilia when the Covid-19 pandemic is over; he has been in touch with me very often sharing his ideas. Hope to be able to communicate and interview Ilia as well in the not distant future!
