The drawing is finally finished.

This drawing took a little longer than intended. Was busy with other parts of life besides the art.

Certain periods throughout the year I create more than other periods.

I enjoyed this color scheme. The colors used in this drawing are different compared to most of the drawings I have completed.

Always attempting to challenge myself more and more each drawing.

Each piece of art that is completed. Helps you challenge yourself.

Helping you become your greatest version. When creating you learn a lot about yourself.

Art helps you grow as a person. Art has helped me see the true value in life.

It is the little things that matter the most. Not the “success” or the “finish line.”

Without all the little steps there would be no “finish line.”

Art is the process of many little fragments of an image put together.

Life is similar to art. Life possesses infinite moments with infinite possibilities. All of these little moments help you become the “you” that we call “you” today.

Patience is key in life. If you believe in yourself, you can manifest anything your crazy mind desires.

Do not let others tell you what your reality is. Projection of the ego is usually nothing but ignorance.

Use nothing but love and tune into the higher frequency of your soul.

You create your own plan or you become a part of someone else’s plan.

Usually, you create your own frequency. The main focus is to stay within your own frequency.

Ignore the “Energy Vampires.”

Some people have nothing better to do than spread negativity.

Listen to your soul and intuition.

If you listen to thyself life will manifest itself into something beautiful.

What your mind is attracted to you should pursue.

If you enjoy who you are. Keep being who you are. Remember to never give up on thyself.

In the darkest times of life. These are the moments where you become your greatest version.

Life might not be butterflies and rainbows in everyone’s eyes.

Do not define yourself with your past.

What matters more than ever is the “now.”

This very moment holds infinite love and possibilities.

What has happened to you throughout your lifetime might possess a huge impact on thyself.

Negative or positive.

What matters the most is how something impacts you.

Not what happens to you. How you react to a situation matters more than ever.

React with negativity or react with positivity.

The future holds unlimited possibilities.

Become stronger than who you were yesterday.

Ignore creating yourself into a victim of this life.

Change the perception in your mind and possibly life will manifest into something beautiful.

All you have to do is believe within thyself and anything is possible.

If you never believe in yourself there will be nothing to believe in.

The way you deal your energy into this world will impact thyself as well as the others around you.

The energy has to transcend to another source.

More positivity will be manifested into this universe or more negativity will be manifested into this universe.

The wisest decision in a moment of “negativity.” Is to turn the negative energy into positive energy. Instead of creating more negativity on top of the negativity you just received.

Life is a battle of the energies.

The Ying and the yang.

Do not let the pain blind you.

Pain is your best friend.

When in pain you learn about life and expand the mind.

Your consciousness grows when you learn how to deal with the emotions of life.

Everything is a balance in the end.

As I leave you to observe the drawing.

Here are a few quotes I would like to share by Carlos Santana. I relate to what he says within each quote. I am sure many other individuals will as well.

-“My dad’s a beautiful man, but like a lot of Mexican men, or men in general, a lot of men have a problem with the balance of masculinity and femininity – intuition and compassion and tenderness – and get overboard with the macho thing. It took him a while to become more, I would say, conscious, evolved.”

– “The most valuable possession you can own is an open heart. The most powerful weapon you can be is an instrument of peace.”

-“Most people are prisoners, thinking only about the future or living in the past. They are not in the present, and the present is where everything begins.”

-“I’m laughing because I know the secret of life. And the secret of life is that I have validated my existence. I know that I am worth more than my house, my bank account, or any physical thing.”

-“My job in this life is to give people spiritual ecstasy through music. In my concerts, people cry, laugh, dance. If they climaxed spiritually, I did my job. I did it decently and honestly.”

-“Most people don’t have that willingness to break bad habits. They have a lot of excuses and they talk like victims.”

-“I realized a long time ago that instrumental music speaks a lot more clearly than English, Spanish, Yiddish, Swahili, any other language. Pure melody goes outside time.”

-“One day there will be no borders, no boundaries, no flags and no countries and the only passport will be the heart.”

-“Peace has never come from dropping bombs. Real peace comes from enlightenment and educating people to behave more in a divine manner.”

There are many more quotes I could post that I can relate to. I will stop before I get too carried away.

Divine feminine

DSC_0585

I will attempt my best to explain this drawing.

There are feminine and masculine traits.

Females have more power/energy.

Labels of each gender are different and quite stereotypical.

The woman. Feeds the family. Cleans. Becomes pregnant. Has the labor of the baby. Raises kids. Lots of love is created and spread. Provides for loved ones. Etc….

Tell your mother you love her. Your mother is everything. Without your own mother, you wouldn’t exist.

Mother nature is a woman.

The earth is more of a being than an earth. The earth has feelings similar to us. The earth reacts to everything we do with it.

The earth is both a female and a male.

The soul is what truly matters the most.

The external world is an illusion.

Imagine every “mother” being a “father.”

As well as every “father” being a “mother.”

If single dads were running this world, I doubt they could “accomplish” as much as our mothers have accomplished for us.

Not hating or ignoring the fathers that are “mothers” to their children as well.

Love expands the mind and ignorance dumbs the mind.

Females have more power in the end.

“Feminine qualities” help you grow as a human being.

Loving.
Kind.
Caring.
Affectionate.
Expressive.
Feelings hurt and need to look within to ignore the negativity.
Insecurities.
Self-image.
Health.

Basically self-care.

I could go on forever.

Thinking most will understand what I am attempting to say.

“Masculine qualities” don’t really help you grow on thyself.

Work.
Hands dirty.
Tough love.
Ignore inner self.
Not expressive.
Takes it how it is.
Ego.
Control.
Lazy.

Everything I express is quite stereotypical of each gender.

All I am trying to Express is we need both feminine and masculine traits.

The internal world is more important than the external world.

Labels are quite stereotypical.

Everything is stereotypical.

We need both feminine and masculine traits to become our greatest versions.

I believe “love” is the correct way to handle a situation instead of “ignoring” the problem.

“Love” = feminine.

“Ignoring the problem” = masculine

But to ignore the problem. The problem will only increase.

Love will solve anything.

Without love and to ignore love. You will become blinded instead of becoming who you truly are. A divine being.

If anything I am more “feminine” then “masculine.”

Your inner feelings are worth more than any object or possession.

Self-care is priceless. Without yourself, you couldn’t be here to be you.

Don’t regret not being yourself. If others don’t accept you. That is their loss. Not yours.

Taking care of thyself should be your first priority. Not your last priority.

I am living this life to “love” each and every soul. Most importantly myself. Thyself.

I am not living this life to regret each moment and to be living in negativity.

“Hatred” arising in each moment for no reason. The “hatred” is within yourself and it is nowhere to be found. Hatred is not a disease. It is who you are within the moment you decide to become angry. Hatred is within you and you are hatred. An angry soul.

Emotions are not really you, but then they are you. Emotions are here and there.

Love is infinite. Love is the answer and the only answer.

Ego knows too much and creates more problems.

Love is all I can say……

The more love you spread.

The higher the chance the world will be at peace with each other.

In time the world will come together and unite into one.

All you have to do is believe in love.

Be your greatest version and that is all that matters.

Love is a priceless feeling that few experience. But what really is love. I guess love is self-explanatory.

Love is different for us all.

Just remember to love and to not create more hatred in the world.

Hatred separates.

Love unites.

The last paragraph explains the foundations of the artwork.

When I look into my art I see many stories as well. It is hard to explain.

This is what I wish to say.

This is only for you to read along with. If you have nothing to say after. That is okay with me. All I wish for you to do is listen to me………

I believe our purpose on this earth is to raise human consciousness and to live each moment in love. Whatever you can do to benefit the world. Creating love for you and others. Love holds the highest vibration known to man. Love has the highest frequency out of all frequencies. The meaning of life is life itself. We are all running around in a delusional vehicle of flesh holding a soul within our body. Attempting to become something greater than what we already are. Forgetting life itself in the process. To not even acknowledge life itself. Instead, we are too blind. The love is being forgotten and the ego is not. Ignore living life at a fast pace. Especially with an abundance of negative energy. With more negative energy life will be a slow process. It will feel as if life itself will never end. All you will want is for life to end in a negative mindset. To live your life in love and positivity. You will live each moment in gratitude and the appreciation of existing. Positivity is always the answer. To create more love in the world. Or to create more hatred. You are either hatred or love. When you “hate” yourself there is no “growing.” When you “love” yourself. Each moment is another moment to become your greatest version. Life will feel as if it is a dream when you use love. Existing in itself is mind-blowing. Appreciate this life or you will never appreciate thyself. To ignore thyself is to never be yourself. Each individual has to express what they feel. If you don’t express who you are. Possibly this you that is within you isn’t the you that you wish to be within. Greatness is always around the corner. “New and greater” parts of your being are here. It is just that you haven’t “discovered” them within yourself. Look within. All you have to remember is to never give up on yourself. To give up on yourself is to not love yourself. To love yourself is to express yourself and then you are being yourself. If you aren’t yourself, then this you that is you isn’t you. Expression is everything. Without Expression, you couldn’t express who you are. We are all our own artist of life. Even if you don’t think you are an artist you are. Everything is an expression of another expression. It never ends. Neither does life so you should continue on living. Remember to be “you.” Instead of being a “you” that someone has told “you” to be. Embrace the real “you.”

Live life in fear or love………
