Ukrainian artist Nazar Bilyk created this stunning 6-foot tall sculpture called Rain using fiberglass and metal. A huge raindrop stands suspended on the figure’s face as he looks up toward the sky - making one wonder if he is being overtaken by nature or is reveling in its power and beauty.

"IT is easy to get caught up in ego based illusions, as far too many are blind to their own driving currents, but just as words can create a division between two people, so to can silence bridge that gap and dissolve the illusion of separation. Humankind have been here for over 2 million of years, many plants and animals for even longer, yet the level of chaos in this world is a modern creation, perpetuated by those who have lost their inner harmony. What we need is a cure for the ego-disease which runs rampant in this realm, for if we could but dissolve our ego for just one moment and see the clarity of truth that surrounds us, the problems of the world would vanish that very same day. We tend to forget that light can only shine within darkness, so to deny darkness is to deny a piece of that which is within us all. When looking at the yin yang sign, its not about being the light side, its not about being the dark side, its more about becoming that line that flows in between, which also wraps IT-self around the outer edges of both sides and becomes complete. For IT takes a non-dual view and approach to BEcome whole, for the view of duality does not let us embrace the entire spectrum of BEing. Choosing one side or the other only creates this false sense of duality, which in turn creates inner conflict and suffering, as this illusion is only a battle between You and You within. It is as if we are taking a stick in each of our hands and fighting against our-self, You will never win! Or if we were to look through a microscopes at the brilliant battle going on within our blood flow, looking long enough our mind would begin to choose sides between blood cells and viruses, but without this tremendous battle going on within us, the harmony of our being would not exist!This is why they say that what you dislike in others is really what you dislike about yourself, for IT is our shadow within that we project unto others. We must face our shadow for our unconscious to come to light, as the world becomes what IT was meant to BE, a true reflection of who we ARE inside!”
