Higher Nature by sfprincess Higher Nature by sfprincess
"Self has really two meanings...one is self, the identity of the individual created by God...The other self is the ego, the dark, animalistic heritage each one of us has, the lower nature... It is this self we must struggle against, or this side of our natures, in order to strengthen and free the spirit within us and help it to attain perfection." -Shoghi Effendi

This piece and quotation touches me in a deep sense and I wanted to share it with my dear friends. Hope you enjoy! :)

Made with Apophysis, *CabinTom's Rings script, and Adobe Photoshop.

I really love the movement of this piece--the way it seems to arch ever upward. It evokes thoughts of architecture, yet the texture and intermingling set it apart as something totally different. The lighting also intrigues me: It stays mainly in the center and leads up to blue instead of white (the color I might normally expect to find).

Very nice piece :thumbsup:

Haha! True, about the blue... You would definitely expect white. Thanks so much for your feedback my friend. <3

lika road leading out of the dark (to put it into the context of the quote)
