Al Latif 10″x8″ oil & acrylic on canvas

Description: 8″x10″ oil & acrylic on canvas~ One of the 99 Names of the Divine One, “Al Latif: The Most Subtle” celebrates an attribute that inherently pervades the soul. This attribute finds expression through awareness of our most sublime states so it takes inner polishing for it to be fully expressed outwardly. Subtlety is the very quality that is found in all spiritually awakened beings. Contemplation on this attribute brings healing, solace and lightness of being to self and to those who come across the recipient of this grace. Working on this painting, its visuals conveyed from the start the soothing energies contained in Subtlety so the creative process was particularly beautiful.

~ The Most Subtle ~

O effusive Light
that fashions our becoming,
we read your vertical signs
with the sun and the moon in chorus,
we praise You in infinite ways!
O You who are not exhausted
by Your Attributes
as You pervade
the black holes
of the Heart that
relentlessly contemplates
on you; expanding, giving,
throbbing with anticipation
of being in the gentleness
of Your Presence anew!
