In the winged abode
Stealthy shadows move seasons,
Radiant lights reflect suns,
Whole universes contract
Consciousness ascends its slopes
Bringing and taking images.
Only in the high regions
Are white transparencies drawn
Marble walls hidden
Magnificent games written
Gigantic transformations designed.

Eyes looking inward
Crossing the threshold of the abode
Seizing the future by its wings
Tying the past by its feet
Lifting up futures
Raising understandings.

Time stops
To see the light pass
Illuminating everything
With sweetness,
With kindness,
With infinite perfection
Emanating from the center of my heart

Portland Oregon, February 2005


This book is their most recent collaboration, Fernando as a poet, Rafael as a draftsman, with a production that has been giving informally for the last 21 years or so. Each one in their own field, and in this book they have gathered their “notes” on different topics in relation to the internal experience and in two separate media. Both artists draw their inspiration from the experience contained in “Silo’s message”, a spiritual path based in the search for meaning in life, overcoming suffering and finding transcendence in the depths of the mind. This book is an account of that experience.
