Life in it’s most simplified form is about love, joy and companionship. If we can achieve these three things in life it is a life well-lived indeed.
Some personal evolution is required if we are to live positively. It requires us to remain in a state of consciousness and self awareness that needs to be nurtured on a daily basis. It requires us to wake up every morning with a positive outlook on the outcome of the day. Learning to let go is another tool in this kind of evolution. Letting go of the past, walking away in difficult situations and letting go of negative people in our lives may be required in our quest for a more positive lifestyle. Forgiveness is another building block that shouldn’t be overlooked either. For many forgiveness is the most difficult hurdle in the journey towards personal peace. From personal experience I can say it is quite liberating to forgive. Once we learn to forgive we can truly begin our journey forward.
Art making done in the right way plays a life-changing role on this incredible journey. Art making is not just meant for an elite few but it is for everyone. It is through the arts that we connect with something greater than ourselves. It is through art that many of us find inner peace and the foundation for a more positive lifestyle.
Each and everyone of us is affected to some degree by the negativity of others on a daily basis. The energy we carry within us and which in turn radiates outwards not only affects other people but it affects our spaces, so it is important that we enter our art spaces free and clear of negative energy. Our studios and work-spaces must therefore become our sanctuary and holy ground.
These spaces, our spaces become essential in our evolution towards inner peacefulness and positive energy.
How we live our lives is a choice not Karma.
So choose wisely.
Life is a precious gift.
