The wonder of life going on, carrying on. A sense of accomplishment for staying close to the truth as you see/saw it. Yet, the perception that a feeling of vagueness, of diffused reality continues to swirl around me and perhaps all beings; continues to scratch and itch at my thoughts.
Now, I have recently been tested. That's right, tested for the corona virus. Throughout all the intense world wide focus on a single issue, testing has remained a mystery to me.
Early in March of last year, my wife became ill with symptoms that at the time, were not yet identified as being the corona virus. She experienced severe discomfort, had taste and smell loss as well as hearing and eyesight difficulties! The ordeal went on for nearly six weeks before she felt normal again. During this time, I also felt ill enough to stay home, by now completely convinced that we both had the virus.
All along, the information concerning major cautions and protocols to be enforced on the public have been equally challenging to many people in this country and around the world.
It occurred to me that perhaps the resistance to conforming to the pandemic precautionary protocols is primarily a personality based issue.
It is in fact that personality reflects trends in group behavior and contributes to the dynamic reflection of universal give and take, ebb and flow, addition and subtraction.
The conclusion, when considering mankind's development since the beginning of the world, is that time has not changed the inherent attitudes that spring from each individual's personal experience moment by moment. Shaped by the infinite uniqueness of existence, each and every moment affecting every cell in our being, every nerve, every sensation.
Just start. Plan a start. Enter a space where you are encouraged TO START HERE. Formula: You attend a session with expert and gentle guidance and there will be a request to "START HERE, start by stretching, start by preparing, start by drawing this line, etc. You actually relax when there is EXPERT GENTLE GUIDANCE. You tense up when you are starting out of fear or shame and that is why EXPERT GENTLE GUIDANCE, ANGEL GUIDANCE to be specific.
As we close out the almost unbelievable year of 2020 -- and look towards our collective future we can experience goodness and light by just starting something and finishing it. When I begin a new piece of art I am essentially a teenager discovering that just doing it is worthwhile, the outcome will reflect the degree of focus (relaxation attention) or frenzy ( fearful outcomes attention) so when you realize that it IS EMOTIONAL you can be more accepting from your point-of-view and enjoy and learn from others criticisms or comments. Stay well as you turn toward achievement mindset applied to all activities, yes a checklist can be of help. Many blessings to all for a brighter more understanding atmosphere here on planet EARTH and a HAPPY NEW YEAR!
We are happy to share our interests about many diverse subjects by utilizing art lessons that are designed to bring awareness, stimulate conversations and advance understanding of the dynamic world we live in.
