While hearing one is sick, we think about the nursing, but the mentally ill patients can only dream about such understanding and the compassion for their hardships. Thus I can’t rejoice over the consciousness of my town.
On the other hand, either being the mentally ill is something that deserves the applause out of itself? Not, of course. Then why did I feel some irritation? Either I worry just for myself (I am exactly such patient), or think about you as my brothers and sisters?
I think the picture on above perfectly share these  emotions. If…when we succeed in transcending our prejudices, we insensibly enter the realm of the spiritual wonderland…
Now, let me share some of visual thoughts, let me invite you to Modus Vivendi.

Who is the winner?

Life likes the public order, and the fine arts puts that pictorially: the babyish lullabies turn to tales for the children, and the stories for the teenagers grow into the literature for the adult. If we would judge by appearance, it may look like the victory of the material world against the spirituality, yet I do not want to whine – who is the true winner? Either God, or the market?

The Holly Spirit makes my material dependence into the source of blessing : God changes the complaints for the hardships of living with the disability into the gratitude for living

Welcome to transformational art of Tomas Karkalas

The daily Bible reading characterize my current posture: I didn‘t talk about my works as some personal achievements but enjoy seeing life from God‘s view. So my artworks are not a boast of a struggle with an empty sheet of paper but the sitting in an awe towards the magnificent flight of the God‘s Spirit, which gifts the peace in the painful living with the disabilities…
The obedience to the rules of the road  could help the spread , but I haven’t the obligatory finance for such publicity.
The outcome?
I was invited to participate in art therapy. It concerns about the transformational approach to life more than to the physical tracks of our paintbrushes.  Such “palette” exceeds the framed spaces  of the pictures to our everyday cares – portrays the eternal truths.  Unfortunately, art therapy costs too : the artistic materials cost higher than my pension. Therefore, I address you for the help now :
please help the disabled, who is out of any work, to live his belief.

Thank you!

Your emotions trouble you only in those things which you call yours

…as I recall these words of wisdom are an open secret – yet they are still the secret and continue to show the truth in our stressful world…- Thus What is a use of talking?
