The perennial philosophy puts forward the hypothesis that the major religions of the world have all grown out of the same ground of reality and are all directed toward that same reality. Long before I read the book written by Aldous Huxley I had started to appreciate the similarities and connections between the major religions. Comparing one religion with another seems to be a case of viewing the truth from a different angle or perspective. I hope, during the years left to me of this bodily existence, that I can understand this truth more clearly and reveal it through my paintings.
