Blazing Shades [5]

(The Grin Reaper; Acrylics, Inks and Oils on 22×22 cm coated wooden board)

Hoping, wanting, striving,
how much are you willing to give?
The wild games of desire and hope,
how do you plan to reach your goal?

Sooner or later we all have to face the Grin Reaper during our lives. There’s no way around him if one seeks the Empress.

The Grin Reaper wakes the dreamer, teaches us about the reality and its consequences, because he is aware that our actions in the present define us as well as the future/life and predict the path one is walking on. He knows that everybody is the master of their own destiny, because we form the future with our own bare hands – and that’s why it is so important that we act for the right reasons, otherwise our future will be built on sand. The Grin Reaper is conscience and judge. Whichever path one takes – it’s up to oneself. But either way, the eyes of the Grin Reaper will always rest on each of us, as he sees into the souls (he’s a part of each living being) – he won’t judge one for their actions, but for their reasons. For him there is no such thing as “There was no other way”, because he knows the truth about your reasons.

The Grin Reaper teaches that your actions in the present define yourself and your future/life, predict the path ahead of you. You are the master of your own destiny and there are no excuses to not do the right thing (which sometimes means facing a path of trial and tribulation). Though how to know what ‘the right thing’ is, is another story.
