I am an artist/writer/philosopher that lives in North America, in the United States.
I live in a small town of about 40,000 people.
Each person is similar to a ghost walking throughout the streets. You never really know each individual, but can observe and feel the presence of their energy. Each person having their own aura.
I have been creating art for the past two years now, in a serious way.
When people ask me “What do you do for a living.”
I always question what that means. What I “do for a living” really should not matter, should it?
I could be a bitter soul full of hatred and have all the money/ fame in this world. Your labels do not define who you are.
The energy you emit to the world, as well as the energy you feel within yourself, is who you are.
Labels do not change who you truly are.
Be your true self instead of hiding behind different masks.
Loyalty and trust are important when using your soul.
If I were to have all the money in the world I would still be who I am today.
I would help the people in need. Spread as much love around as I can.
My answer to this question.
“What do you do for a living.”
Well, I breathe, just like everyone else. I eat/ go to the bathroom. Oh and I sleep sometimes too.
My point is, I am nothing but human. I happen to make art for happiness and I am lucky enough that I can make it into a “career” in the future. The goal is a full-time “career”, well that is the dream.
This dream lies in my hands. The people help the dream happen including all the people reading this. It is all of the energy put towards the craft, every little amount of energy matters as much as the last amount of energy.
If it was not for each transcending moment, you would not be here at this very moment. Every second put into the art means that much more of an improvement. Even if I “fail” at a drawing. It is still an improvement.
I look at my art as play and not work, you do not get paid for something you enjoy. You get paid for something that you do not enjoy.
Then again you can contradict what I just said. I am thinking most will understand what I am trying to explain.
You only get paid for something you do not enjoy because then there is no need to be doing what you are doing if the only reason is for the money and nothing else.
If you get paid for something, what you are doing is nothing more than a duty.
No one pays the children to go have fun and run around outside.
We live in a society that is ego driven and we automatically think we have to be “rewarded” something for everything we do.
Imagine if I told you that everything you did you would receive nothing in return.
All you would receive is the gift of life each and every day.
Material and money should not control your life.
Live your life through your soul and love instead of being controlled by the illusions of life.
Health is wealth.
Attempt “working” on your health.
A positive mindset also comes with a healthy body.
It is as if no matter what we are never happy enough as a collective.
Everyone is always waiting for the next thing or waiting for more of something.
If you think about it there is nothing that is next.
You can’t have everything at the moment.
There is only the now.
All you must do is be and live in the moment.
Patience is at an all-time low for most individuals
I recommend becoming more patient.
Everything I do is out of my imagination and nothing else. It is all just for fun. All being an act of play at the end.
All of the money is extra. What I care most about is the energy people give me towards the artwork. The expressions as well, So I guess the new energy created and the love that the art creates in this world.
By being yourself you bring a whole new energy to this world.
There is only one of you.
Start being “yourself” now.
If each day you are manifesting more positive energy into your life.
You are on the path to becoming your greatest version.
We all have different energies to offer the universe.
Remember to not be so locked up and do not fear to share your state of mind in this world. Even if it hurts, in the end, it is better to be a “real” you than a “fake” you.
Here I sit typing up this blog, aging every second that passes by. To never grasp any moments that pass by but only to live in each moment the best I can.
The imagination lets you “remember” past times. Everything is your imagination, all of these mind games I tell you.
Looking into the past or imagining what the future holds for you can be scary or pleasurable. It is always the moments with the most energy that you never forget in your lifetime. The happiest and the saddest moments, usually these moments are imprinted on the brain.
It is the way you stand back and observe each moment, there is yin and yang in all situations. The individual just needs to see a deeper message or meaning. We need more of this yang. The greater energy out of the two. Positive energy will force out the negative energy. It feels as if more negative energy is flowing around the world at the moment.
It is on each individual to create each moment.
No one is perfect, I always attempt my best with my imagination. I do not always create the piece of art I manifested within my mind, but I am happy with what is created.
The next time you get a chance to become your greatest version learn how to manifest a brighter future.
It is best to live in the moment you physically are in, at this very moment and no other moment. If you live in a different moment of time then your mind is not even in the “now.”
It is hard to appreciate what you see at this very moment when you are not living in this very moment. Destroying the purpose of life in a way.
All of this is very ironic.
Stop living in regret, choose to live in the “now.”
To dwell on past moments is a bad idea. Nothing can be fixed or changed, just reflected upon.
Yes, this is a picture of me, I never post pictures of myself.
This photo was from about a year ago.
I am lazy and do not want to take a current photo, hahaah.
The only difference Is I have more of a beard and a lot more hair. My hair is getting quite long.
Now here I am at this very moment typing this. If it was not for the moment in my mind, that I decided I wanted to go full out on this “art’ thing. I would not be here at this very moment typing this. It all would be nothing but a “dream.”
Here I am happier than I was last year, many positive and negative situations occur to everyone within their lifetime.
I do not wish to speak of myself, I would have no idea what to tell you. I never really have anything to say, unless I am talked to or if people ask me things.
Yes, I do talk a lot but most of the time to myself. As we all do, I probably talk to myself more often than most do, hahahaha.
With time and experience, the universe will create my future, all I have to do is play with the universe and not give up. Listen for the signs when they are there and follow through.
Remember to not ignore the intuition, heart, and soul. The soul, heart, and intuition guide you throughout your life.
Trust the energy you are feeling at the moment. Each moment creates the next moment. Pay attention to the energy and do not ignore the energies you feel in your presence.
“Chaotic Shapes” aka “Brandon Knoll” is signing off, ask me anything you please. It can be something as simple as 1, 2, 3. Or possibly a question as complex as the creation of this universe. I do not know the literal answer, hahaha. I just mean a question that is very complex and mysterious. Love to have conversations with people who are interested in the same thought patterns as me.
I am ready for all people and types of questions, do not be too scared to ask anything.
Nothing is too weird/strange or abnormal for me. I accept it all, hahaha.
I am no greater than you, all of us are equal. All I happen to do is create some art and besides that, I am a happy and a humble soul.
All I wish for is peace, love, and positivity to vibrate throughout each soul.
Ask any question as you please.
