The isolation we’ve experienced through the months of the pandemic often made our encounters with other living beings more meaningful and precious. It is not just in contemplative practice, in the presence of great natural beauty, or in the ‘zone’ of extreme physical exertion, danger or creativity that enlightenment and awareness can occur. It is the connections we make as living beings on this planet that can facilitate bliss and allow us to experience the peace, love and joy of life during this unprecedented time of plague for our generation.
Bliss in Time of Plague is an expression of such an encounter during the first summer of Covid. The accompanying lavender jade pendant represents cleansing the mind of cluttered thoughts, confusion, and negativity. The Tree of Life wire-wrapped around the stone symbolizes the interconnectedness of all things.
Peace, joy, and love to you.
