In essence, this creativity aims to simplify and complicate in words and imagery the emotional, physical, spiritual, and political qualities of two men embracing. It journeys in an ongoing cumulative interactive platform that results in the final interactive piece for completion in 2014. In this section of www.theuniversalembrace.com you can view the ongoing dialogues with narrative that help support the crystallised final narratives of Phi, Spirit and Society.

Blessing for myself, mindfulness from 2010
I wrote this text in 2010 and put it on my wall where I light candles every night.
I think its quite poetic and thought I might post it here as part of a narrative from around three years ago.
Take from it what you will!
I bless myself.
Leave the Ego behind, a prayer to spirit.
I have emotions; yet I am not the sum of those emotions.
I have shared creations, yet they remain a record of the time-I am not only those creations.
I have a body, but I am greater then my physical body suggests.
I have an illness, and I suffer, but I would not trade the pain for what I've learnt.
I have fears, but I am not those fears.
I have some money, but that money does not make me.
I will pass over, and I accept this.
I have an ego and identity, 'Richard William McLean', but the ego is corruptible and to be dis-assembled.
I ask for spiritual, physical, and emotional protection for myself and those I love and touch every day and give thanks everyday.
I am kind, and give thanks to something greater than myself for that kindness.
I have kinks in my armor, and accept faith to amend them.
I am sorry. As my toe touches the ground and the earth be my witness, and the reply is, you are forgiven.
I love you, and the reply is: 'You are loved!'
I am lots of things, but no section or element of them is me.
