Dance of the Golden Fish [Oil on Canvas 16×20 Inch] © Omay Lee 2019

In the hustle and bustle of city life with all its seeming energy, there may be a pond which might appear stagnant on the surface – drained of its inner vitality it longs to dance once more. Yet peer a little deeper into the depths and a glimmer of life will emerge, subtle and not of the material world, but of an alchemy that is worth more than any gold.

“金华即金丹,神明变化,各师于心..” [太乙金华宗旨] “The golden flower is the vessel of a red substance of immortality, where bones turn to gold as spirit is transformed..” [Secret of the golden flower – Ancient Daoist text]
