ROM-CONSCIOUSNESS-TO-AWARENESS-INTELLIGENCE-M.-Sager-2021.-Acrylic-on-canvas-150-x-120-cm-02

An electrical device neither contains nor produces electricity itself nor is our body the source of life energy. Instead, a body only comes to life and a brain becomes conscious when it is connected to life energy. Next: Control is required. While consciousness turns on the power supply, intelligent awareness controls activities and behavior (e.g. using record buttons, erasing, playing, stop buttons). A person, although stimulated by consciousness, would not … Continue reading

Return to roundness

Painting RETURN TO ROUNDNESS M. Sager 2021, Acrylic on canvas 150 x 120 cm

As energy works in waves, life operates in the softness and roundness of circles and cycles. The earth rotates around the sun, we sleep and wake in rhythmic sequels, like the circle of birth and death. What a contrast we create between the spherical, freely flowing world of life energy and the squared and edged compositions of the frightened human mind seeking physical protection. Instead of predominantly angular, cubic, boxed, … Continue reading

Break out

BREAK OUT (M. Sager, 2021. Acrylic on wood panel, 80 x 80 cm)

We know that Santa Claus is a fairytale, and yet we keep it alive. We know that many regulations and laws are ridiculous, and yet we follow them obediently. We know that corporate sustainability is an afterthought, and yet we don’t insist on keeping them accountable. We know that our identity is a product of socialization, and yet we believe that’s who we are. And all because if we want … Continue reading

COURAGEOUS JUMP OF KINDNESS

courageous jump of kindness painting mathias sager

It’s easy to be smart, but difficult to be kind. Indeed, kindness requires courage and strength. Awareness-intelligent thought and courageous efforts to act in kindness reward with feelings of egoless affection, as everybody knows who has ever, for example, only helped a lost tourist despite low likelihood to ever meet again and get reciprocity. By caring for somebody’s soul, we care for the collective of all souls, we affect universal … Continue reading

Two pieces for peace

Hoping, speaking out for, and acting for social justice and change is not coming from negativity. Instead, it is the expression of positive thinking that things can be done better and a healthier and more peaceful world is possible. M. Sager It is easy to love people when they smell [look] good, but sometimes they slip into the manure of life and smell [look] awful. You must love them just … Continue reading

Fluffed up vs. ‘reality before appearances’

Fluffed up (M. Sager, 2020). Acrylic on woodpanel, 50 x 100 cm As we deserve to be not judged by our past, we should not judge others according to the labels they are given. The socio-economic status of people doesn’t tell us much about their human qualities. Try to see people’s soul regardless of social personality appearances. Don’t waste your thoughts on interpreting equipment, façade styles, and fashions. They are … Continue reading

F… airytale. (M. Sager, 2020). Acrylic on wood panel, 40 x 60 cm Many people believe that they would not be complete without a legally bounded better half, that everybody needs somebody to romantically relate to and be taken care of, that one has to be someone’s personified treasure, and that an embodied relationship is the source of all strength. These prince-and-princess fairytales are sweet to promote the continuance of … Continue reading

Trinity Warrior III. Acrylic on canvas, 100 x 100 cm. (Non-violent) ‘fighting’ for Awareness Intelligence that comprises the three treasures of Taoism: MODERATION leads to generosity (All are born the same as humans. There is no superiority of anyone, just different cultures, and societal norms. -> I’m thinking about my INTRAPERSONAL PAST. Who am I really regardless of my upbringing?) COMPASSION leads to courage (Unconditional love removes fear from pressure, … Continue reading
