This pastel drawing is inspired by a geometric symbol showing the “Highest Self”. The following text is a summary of a course on the internet in 2003, by James Twyman, called “The art of Spiritual Peacemaking”. The wheel symbol was given in black and white. The energy of the pastels comes in on another level than the text. The symbol of the Highest Self, or the Soul, is part of the Holy Geometry which has been known for thousands of years and passed down from generation to generation by certain ancient communities and esoteric schools. In this symbol of the soul, also called Emissary Wheel, there are four equilateral triangles crossing each other, forming the spokes of a wheel.

Courage is dynamic and has confidence at its side. It comes from the power of our inner source. It is not to be found outside as it is more a given attitude. We all need courage to act authentically and to be true to ourselves and others. We all have basic courage as a birthright and we are all able to act from it. Through courage we find out who we really are.
Patience is developed from courage and the knowing who we are. Patience is soft, can wait, sees from the heart with eyes filled with love. Patience offers a creative flow for things to happen at the right time and place. The reward of patience? It's more patience! It is the way it is!
Inner wisdom uncovers the unheard, the unseen, the unexperienced. Inner wisdom is creative power. When courage and patience go hand in hand they lead to wisdom. Wisdom wants to be lived and shared. When inner wisdom, love and truth walk together, they give us the power to freely act in responsibility.
The intuitive heart reaches out to the doubtful mind. Together they find the certainty to accept the transforming power in our lives. Certainty carries us through transformation. Certainty tells us that we are loved and that offering love and receiving love are the same.
The certainty we experience in being loved and the joy we feel when offering love leads to compassion with all there is. Compassion is the expression of love for others as part of ourselves. Compassion unites us with all there is. Compassion transforms through our inner source. Compassion serves without thinking of a reward.
When inner certainty and compassion come together they lead to pure joy. The joy we mean does not depend on the movements of every day life. Pure joy simply is. Pure joy is a continuous bliss. Joy transforms and reconciles duality and stimulates creativity.
All that is important at this stage is that you recognize each of these attributes as yours. Now … not becoming, not gradually integrating, but fully present. This very moment. Accept that you have not seen clearly until now. Without guilt. Finally, your gratitude for your meaningless error will bring the Clarity you have lacked till now and everything will make sense again. Know that all attributes are yours now.
We can't understand the experience of breaking a leg in theory. The same is true for everything. We learn through experience who we are. This understanding has little to do with our mind as the mind is too limited to grasp Life. Go right to the essence of who you are. The mind will fail to follow, but you will feel grace on the way which offers courage to go further. Understanding who you are is a gift that is given and received at the same moment
What we are looking for is depth beyond possible imagination. Look at the world around us, look at what is so called ugly and so called beautiful. When looking at it, say with a whisper or aloud: I AM THAT! Become aware that you are that feeling, that person, that condition. Embrace it all. You are the unique expression of a unique essence. You are IT. Embrace all you are.
As we ask for something, we admit that it is not already ours. What is needed is an expansion of what it means to possess. There is nothing that does not belong to You. The cup is full, it runs over. Offer IT all to everything! Stop trying to determine what is yours and what belongs to others. There is no other ! As soon as we accept this, our heart overflows and the "I" and "me" awakes from the illusion of separation.
We begin to define abundance in new ways when we know the outside world reflects our inner reality. There are those among us, that have next to nothing by the standards of the world, and yet they dwell in abundance. There are those who have everything and feel poor. Offer everything to All, and accept everything from All. We create our own individual abundance through thoughts and actions.
This is a call to live the highest version of the highest vision we can imagine. This highest vision calls for the unconditional love of our essence. Unconditional love embraces all and loves without any reason. Being in oneness with the all-embracing unconditional love, we receive all we ever desired.

The 4 equilateral triangles are forming together 3 squares with in the center a triangle in which a circle is found. Both the triangles and the squares are just as important. Inside the 3 squares the energy of the 4 triangles can be found. The points of the big triangles are showing the various aspects of the mind. However, to reach the heart, the mind should be first clear, and completely illuminated by the squares. Then only, the heart will be quiet and able to surrender. The central triangle, symbol of heart energy, with on the outer points the force fields of Surrender, Trust and Gratitude, unites the energy of the 4 triangles and the 3 squares with the all-encompassing centre. This centre is symbol for the “Highest Self” or “Source”.
