Back Rob Hain - The Valley of Love Next

O My Brother! Until thou enter the Egypt of love, thou shalt never come to the Joseph of the Beauty of the Friend; and until, like Jacob, thou forsake thine outward eyes, thou shalt never open the eye of thine inward being; and until thou burn with the fire of love, thou shalt never commune with the Lover of Longing.


Love is not a cause for peace. Passion produces grief and death. "The leviathan of love swalloweth the master of reason and destroyeth the lord of knowledge" - Baha'u'llah. This painting tries to show this destruction like fire consuming logic and reason (seen in the checkerboard design). This part of the journey is essential in order to enter the next Valley.
