this work was born out of the examination of my first name’s meaning, GLORIA.
my parents chose this name for me to be baptized with and “hold” it for my lifetime and to be known and recognized by it. GLORIA is LATIN for glory and honour, that i discovered already earlier on my path when i could not easily connect to and identify with my name.
some people claim names to represent a value or goal that one is encouraged to develop or manifest; and your friends and fellows calling your name always recall that one value, almost like repeating a mantra for you.
i once met a spiritual woman on a plane and she was wondering, WHAT I GAVE GLORIFIED OR GAVE HONOUR TO. that question accompanied me for a while.
the GENESIS. means the origin. my realization was “GLORIA GENESIS” – honor of the origin of all.
this work came to be the manifestation of this realization – GLORIA GENESIS – a praise to the origin of all through what then created the world we know, the ELEMENTS: ether, fire, earth, air and water.
