You are the world.

acrylic, ink, collage 16 X 24 inches

"In oneself lies the whole world and if you know how to look and learn, the door is there and the key is in your hand.  Nobody on earth can give you either the key or the door to open, except yourself.  What you are the world is and without your transformation there can be no transformation of the world."
J. Krishnamurti
