Marie Polaskova

I had a very special dream tonight. I met there my former fellow student Marie, who I haven't seen for years neither in the real life nor in my dreamings. It was a surprise, when she, a teacher of yoga, Tensegrity and other psycho-physical exercises within the scope of her graduant study at FaVU, caught my hand on a meadow where a lot of practitioners were having their places in the midnight. She steered me to her blanket in front of all the others (she was a leader of the rest of people) - it was my place. Then she sidled away...for a while. But I fell asleep earlier than she moved back. When I woke up in the dream she started kindly comment my actual estate of life, lovely criticize my actual spiritual situation. Then it became a lucid dreaming. Maybe the most stupid but most common approach, at least which I do, is a trying to contact the person in this watchful kind of sleep. I tried to do that again and saw some visions in a "window" or through "a channel" but I think little of that. Then it slowly and continuously changed to the perfect awareness. I woke up physically but still be in bed, without any vestige of sleepiness but restful and meditating. The message was clear. Imagine yourself five years ago and compare your ideals to your actual life. Maybe I was reading too much the recent auction results, omitting the spirit these days. To be here and now! OK, thank you my dear inner voice, I'll be more careful. I started with making today a fasting day. Btw. Marie is definitely very interesting painter and I'd name her a spiritual artist as well. See her websites www.e-marie.cz and her Stuart Page. Anyway I think that the topic of my awaking dream was not herself as a person. :)

Interesting dream. I like your work. There are a lot of people who claim who be spiritual artists but are not. It's nice to find a true one. I'm adding a link to my site which focuses on the relationship between art & spirituality. I'm interested in creating a network of true spiritual artists. http://www.sybilarchibald.com

After all my experiences I suggest that every rich person who appreciates and understands authentic and non-commercial art should be treated as a Holy Man and a very rare phenomenon. Do money corrupt taste for art? My praying: May all the artists be free of profit-thoughts (and profit-problems). :)
