Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

Upside Down or Right Side Up is inspired by my own words as well as Rumi and Shams Tabrizi. And one unique feature of this artwork is that it does not matter how you hang it, you can hang it in any way vertically or horizontally.

As we look at our past we can find many events that as they were happening we thought that our lives would be over, but once some time passed we blessed the event for happening for having to worked out in our favor. So why not make a decision that we are going to live our life without the need to worry of outcomes since we know the end result will be something that is always for our benefit and in our favor. As they say "It will all be good at the end, and if it not good then it is not the end." This next quote in some places is stated as being from Shams Tabrizi and other places from Rumi. It does not matter since it is a great one: "Instead of resisting to changes, surrender. Let life be with you, not against you. If you think "My life will be upside down" don't worry. How do you know down is not better than upside?

This artwork was created by process of photo manipulation, digital layering and digital blending.
