In the year of the Dragon, one man’s legend was immortalized by death and another was born into light. Through a journey of suffering, the mysteries of life were revealed and the artist known as RED stepped forward to speak his truth. Questions of “why” dissolved in a moment and a feeling of bliss, joy and happiness replaced reason with purpose.
During his early childhood, he was surrounded by the mystical wonders and beauty of the jungles in the island of the clouds, Borneo. By the time he was a young adult, the peace and serenity of nature was overshadowed by the confusion of mass media and industrialization while living in the United States. As a result of disarray, he intuitively sought to heal himself and traversed the waters of the Pacific Ocean to the ancient Kingdom of Thailand. While deep in meditation, the realization that the past and future are nothing more than illusory perceptions led him to the ultimate reality of the present, now moment. “As we breathe, we are centered. As we center ourselves, we connect with our hearts and allow our true selves to shine through.” The essence and simplicity of being allowed him to see past the veil of judgment and separation and into the light of unconditional love and oneness, that we are all one, connected to each other and everything. It is now that he shares his light with the world and encourages all of humanity to journey together as one.
