Funny Road Signs & The Truth Is A Pathless Land
Funny road signs, blank funny road signs in transparent PNGs, dinosaurs in a British suburb and my visual take on "The Truth Is A Pathless Land" (as not to scare the young NLPlings) ...
It's all connected ... ;->
I was musing on something this morning and remembered a sign I saw on the internet some years ago - it was a funny road sign with a convoluted path which said, follow the psycho path. I wanted to make an illustration on the topic, looked for the original sign and it was nowhere to be found. It's funny how things that were so common on the internet at some time just disappear altogether, data is so malleable, so easily lost (Japanese saying: Three things in life are certain - death, taxes and data loss).
Anyway, I decided to re-make my own version of the classic sign. I put "follow the psycho path" underneath, then considered that the young NLPlings will freak out again and consider this to be a sinister post hypnotic suggestion to follow some psychopath and become serial killers ...
So I thought, well, the illustration is a good illustration for the "truth is a pathless land" principle. It's much the same as following the psycho path - lol.
Either way, you've got to get off of not just the one road, but the left road AND the right road and make your way into the proverbial pathless land, where you tend to lay your tracks as your incarnation takes you forward in spirals and in serpentines :-)
I like this. To me, it stands for a number of things, amongst them also the notion that to try and "walk the path of the conscious mind" leads to nowhere, just as to try and "walk the path of the unconscious mind (energy mind)" leads to nowhere either and what you need is a third thing, the glorious wilderness of trying to grapple with reality absolute, and that's done not on a tour bus with all the other cult members, but one human trying to make their own way in the pathless land, one at a time.
At any rate, I put quite a bit of effort into my basic funny road sign so I thought perhaps we can start a revival of new funny road signs by making the transparent PNGs of blank funny road signs available to the general public, so I made some while I was there.
