No Heaven Up In The Sky

"But this wasn't their God. It's my God. This is a God I have found through sacrificing my own life, through my flesh being cut, my skin ripped off, my blood sucked away, my nails torn, all my time and hopes and memories being stolen from me. This is not a God with a form. No white clothes, no long beard. This God has no doctrine, no scripture, no precepts. No reward, no punishment. This God doesn't give, and doesn't take away. There is no heaven up in the sky, no hell down below. When it's hot, and when it's cold, God is simply there."

-Haruki Murakami, 1Q84
 

This illustration was inspired by this quote from Haruki Murakami's 1Q84 and the idea of a faceless, nameless "God" existing within each person through their own trials and human experiences.
