The One True Thing, by Tokeli

Tokeli writes: The One True Thing is consciousness, which is Love. It is you and it is me. It is the organizing principle for all energetic activity, and that is everything.

Everything is energy: Light particles vibrating at unique frequencies which then express as unique matter. There is light and there is sound (energy), and there is really nothing else. Things break apart; things come together. Things shift, always changing and evolving towards the highest principle. Thoughtful intention creates possibilities.

We exist as consciousness and through consciousness. That is all there is. We are here to learn this about ourselves and to experience it fully.

If you yearn for the deepest understanding of Self, this is your painting.

A Night at the Opera, by Tokeli

Tokeli writes: Close to the end of Bach’s life, he wrote the Mass in B minor (BWV 232)which gave vocal form to his earlier music.  The piece was not performed during his lifetime.

When I put my headphones on and stare at the corner of my bedroom walls where the black painted wall meets the white painted wall, if and when I am sufficiently tranced-out, and I am listening to Bach’s Mass in B minor, I can have very rich, fully telepathic conversations with a hilarious black woman who I have come to suspect is my energy of the godhead. Actually, I do not know who she is.  She is very far away, so I don’t think she can hear me crying out to her.  Or, I am crazy. At the very least, she is a guide of some significance.   I wish she came more often. I can never remember what we talk about.  (That part’s pretty frustrating, I admit.) But I know that it is profound and comforting…and always quite funny.  Sometimes, she takes control of my facial features (transfiguration) and I smile not of my own accord.  This is a very strange feeling but not unpleasant or scary. She speaks Truth.

I am not afraid of this woman. Like me, I can feel that she is a real Diva. She loves drama and laughter. She loves tempestuous storms. She is my friend. She is there completely for me and I feel her wisdom is partially my own unrecovered inner knowledge which I am only now remembering.

I know this sounds very crazy, very crazy indeed, but I am not convinced by you or the outside world that I am crazy. Instead, I will believe that I am experiencing something rare, and I am not afraid to share it with you. It represents to all of us a kind of Hope that this is not all there is. The woman is nothing to be afraid of.  Perhaps she is a metaphor. Perhaps she is me.  I do not know. I will not speculate, only tell you the Truth as it happens to me.
If music brings your senses out of this world, so much so that you can feel your Core, then this is your painting.

Relocation, by Tokeli

Relocation

Mixed Media on Canvas, 36″ x 24″

Step up
Step in
To step up
Step in
To life

We’re drifting in
Begin in an end. Relocation.
Rotation

Shift my weight
I change perspective today and I know that I’m falling and I know I cannot wait
Gravitational by degrees
Makes me feel ill at ease

A world in constant calamitous motion
A world of flooding oceans
Carry on and on and on and on

Just a tiny shift
It’s pulling us apart, tearing us apart
Universal rift
We’re pulling us apart, tearing us apart
Pulling us apart, tearing us apart
Pulling us apart, tearing us apart
Start.

Just a tiny shift
It’s pulling us apart, tearing us apart
Universal rift
We’re pulling us apart, tearing us apart
Pulling us apart, tearing us apart
Pulling us apart, tearing us apart
Start.

We’re drifting in
Begin in an end. Relocation.
Salvation
Spread my wings
See differently and I see you in me and I see the me I wanna be

Gravitational by degrees
I’m falling down on my knees
Regrets so small that I must’ve misplaced in the folds of time, they’re lost
So carry on and on and on and on …

Tokeli writes: “I am experiencing a perceptual shift in my consciousness due to a dramatic fall down a flight of stairs a year ago, where I fell out of my body (OBE). Extrasensory/telepathic abilities are well documented in people who have had this kind of life changing event. My expanded awareness has embedded itself into the work: the writings, the paintings, the music.”
