Underneath the flesh of existence is an Eternal Soul here for a purpose.
Paying attention through time one can begin to see and experience that which is missing. It is the soul's purpose to create and become that missing piece.
In it's unmanifest perfection it yearns to feel this perfection in physical form,
so it spends a lifetime attempting to find it.

This yearning for wholeness is the same motivation for the artist who uses his tools to describe this process.
Like chipping away the stone to free the perfect form, the true artist sculpts their vision.

In the end it can only be an approximation, and yet this work can be the "Work of Ages" if consistantly approached with sincerity and perserverance.

Your life is an ascending wave of purpose and possibility!
It yearns, burns, and is earned to be told!
It is the Universal Story - out of the darkness of limited belief and negative focus & into the light of inifnite potentials realized!
the Uni-Verse (the One song) becoming conscious of itself.
Endlessly returning in the living spiral of your destiny fulfilling itself endlessly.
Conscious Evolution Incarnate!

Journal entry 2002 - In search of wonder

Bio-dynamics journal entry 2002-
In Search of Wonder - A lifetimes journey of manifesting dreams through art.

At a key point in my life's journey it came to me that my highest goal as an artist was to paint the Ultimate Vision. (Alex Grey once noted that this kind of inflated sense of purpose or power can be healthy if channeled into a work of art.) Yet it wasn't just painting or animating it that was the true purpose, but to actually see it again somehow that was the enticement. To have another look at the Vision itself. Because the truth is as an artist and explorer, I'm ever hungry for seeing this kind of Intense Visual Stimulation. It feeds me somehow to have experienced it and to know it's still out there somewhere. So it's kind of like as I'm drawing or painting I'm creating my way back to the Vision one stroke at a time. 
Another way of saying all this is that at one point in my search for artistic subject matter I was given a glimpse of something so wonderous, so inexplicable, that I would spend the rest of my life building a world around it and toward it, in order to create a context for it's entry into this dimension. Part galactic mechanism, rainbow vortex, and spiral network, it was beyond anything I've ever experienced on the earth plane. No movie, special effect, or animation has come close to nicking even the bottom of it's littlest toe.... (end part one)

Malibu Journal - Summer 2008 

My intention with this on-line journal is to document some of my thinking process as I go about maintaining my website, writing stories, drawing, painting, and the various activities that I have going in my life that I feel may be of interest. I'll use it to post images, excerpts from present and past journals, and a kind of 'behind the scenes' look at my artistic approach.
I'll begin tonight by quoting from a recent entry entitled "Dream Portal" - 
"Through the portal of my Imagination I travel to distant locals on this planet and beyond... To touch and be touched, soul to soul, with others from this and parallel worlds. Searching for communion, love, and adventure, in realities both mundane and fantastic. 
Sometimes I'm not even human or any kind of terrestrial creature, but a principal of  energy/information, or an object in some micro or macro plane of existence.
At these times my perspective shifts and morphs out and away from my familiar sense of self or physical location. I may become Universal Concsiousness or the Eye of Time searching endlessly for Home. Yet mostly it is Wonder that I appear to seek. The one thing that always allows my soul and spirit to exalt within the splendors of the Infinite Imagination.
Yes, it is Wonder that I seek, endlessly...."

And so it is that as an artist I seek to create and re-create these wonders in my work. It is the goal and work/play of my life, to share as much of this as possible, that others may be so touched.

BIO-DYNAMICS FROM 2004 (edited 08)

Artist, Writer, and Storyteller Erial has been making Art for as long as he could hold a pencil. 
Each person's life can be seen as a mini Evolution of Consciousness. One's own consciousness mirroring the Evolution of Consciousness itself. Although this process need not be a linear one.

My philosophy flowers out from the central idea that we're imbedded or in-folded within layers of Reality Fields at the core of which is a Mystery to be explored and shared in Story, Art, and Myth-making. Life itself is a Journey of Awakening to greater and greater levels of Awareness to our Inner and Outer Worlds.

I feel like an Explorer that is discovering New Dimensions. There are times when I'm working on a piece of art when it seems like I'm trying to break a Secret Code, that there's something trying to be revealed through me, and if I can just get the right combinations of color, form, and movement, I can crack it. When it happens, when I break the code, it's like something precious is released that is both Healing and Revelatory.
it's like something precious is released, something that didn't exist before. A way of Seeing or away of Being.

My Art is a Science.
There is an Energy Source hidden in the colors that pulses and draws you in and then out, in an auric blast of radiance necessary to take you there.
Where you ask?
To the point of departure from our World to "Theirs".
On the journey to the Heart of the Soul's Light.
