A Brief Introduction: The illustrations and poetry I share in this book occur in various places; space, the ocean, a coffee shop, the sidewalk under street lamps, and the forest. This book is an experiment I’ve composed to contemplate enlightenment. Before you begin to read, I would like you to close your eyes, take a deep breath in, and become aware of all the sounds in existence around you. Feeling your heartbeat, imagine that time is slowing down as you are falling across the event horizon of a black hole. You hit the singularity and all that is happening ceases to be. And in this moment, ask yourself: who are you?
This book was written as a sort of journal on enlightenment, love, what the self is, and collective consciousness. It is the precursor to my Light Beings series, and is essentially the storyline for what Light Beings is. In White Flowers, the flowers are portrayed as a sort of a far-off holy grail that represents hope and the end of suffering, a parallel to the glowing orb seen in Light Beings. Influenced by Eastern philosophy, White Flowers personifies the idea that there is no separation between you and the totality of existence. You are it.
