“People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for Life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think what we’re seeking is an EXPERIENCE of being alive, so that the life experiences that we have on the purely physical plane will have resonances within that are those of our inner most being and reality, so that we actually FEEL the rapture of being alive.”
This quote by Joseph Campbell is one of the most influential quotes I have ever come across which has inspired much of the intention behind Anastarr Designs. Campbell’s philosophy is often summarized by his phrase: “Follow your bliss.” Here at Anastarr Designs, we encourage you to follow your bliss into the great mystery of life; trusting, allowing and accepting the natural unfolding of all life’s experiences. Remaining devoted in service to the world and to others, we invite you to take yourself on a journey within, coming home to your truth with expanded wings of freedom and an open heart of love. Our hope is that you allow yourself to feel the rapture of being ALIVE, not with judgment or expectation, but with patience and appreciation, giving thanks to every feeling, emotion and experience that is within.
These “Sacred Designs,” as I call them, are pieces of art I have created using colored pencils, a compass and a straightedge, intended as tools or maps for the journey within, similar to that of a Mandala. The Buddha pieces are computer images that combine a photographed Buddha statue with an original hand-drawn Sacred Design. These symbolic artistic expressions stemming from principles of Sacred Geometry are conscious designs of shape, color, number and symbol that create a unified field of living vibration to be used by individuals as tools of awareness, transformation and healing.
Sacred Geometry, often referred to as “the new science of compassion”, is about serving creation by experiencing it in all of its dimensions, including the negative aspects of our experiences. My intention is that these “Sacred Designs” can help bring us back to our center where unity is remembered and healing consciousness is imminent.
We have all the tools we need within, and all we have to do is journey inside to find the answer to any question. We are the creators of our own destiny and we get to create our world. Energy flows where attention goes. We must detach ourselves from anything old we are still holding onto and have the courage to change and embrace a new evolution from within. It is time now to take down the shield of armor we have put up around our heart and experience a new world opening from our heart center. It is time now to come ALIVE in the truth of who we are, working together as one with love and compassion. It starts within us. As the Hopi Indians once said, “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.”
And so the Journey Begins…
With Love, Anastarr
