An Artist’s Perspective on Spiritual Abundance

Upstate New York artist, Richard Kathmann allowed me to video his thoughts on spiritual abundance.

Kathmann trained as a painter in college, however he took a job at a Museum to receive a pay check which always paid for everything he needed. But, after 20 years, Richard was starving spiritually. Therefore, he quit his job and took up painting the woods. As time went on, Kathmann discovered the death of the spiritual starvation and the life of living with peace and gratitude.

From 21st Century Science and Health, “You can rejoice in secret beauty and abundance, hidden from worldliness, but known to Spirit.”

My comment: I was inordinately struck when Richard pointed out that trees “record” the fact that even though “we sometimes are outclassed by neighbors, we can adapt and find the light.”
