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.

Quote #73

73

Do you ever feel nervous or anxious in your own skin?

If the answer is yes.

Then this you that seems to be you.

Might not be the real you that you are.

Or possibly you are living within a false reality.

A reality you accidentally manifested.

By entering a reality you do not wish to be in.

You become anxious and nervous.

There is no reason to be anxious or nervous.

If you are anxious or nervous then this you that they say is you is not yourself.

To be yourself is to be completely comfortable in your own skin.

Listen to your inner voices and your true self will speak to your soul.

Remember to keep being you.

Instead of being a you that everyone tells you to be.

Who has the right to tell you who to be beside you?

Live this life or this life will live through you.

Humans tend to get worked up easily.

Falling into a negative reality of life.

That was never wished for.

Everything is a world problem of some sort.

While actual world problems are occurring in this world.

What needs to be saved in this world is being ignored.

While everything that is being saved should be ignored.

I do not mean this literally.

This is an exaggeration of speech.

Not that anything should be ignored.

We as a collective need to take better care of ourselves.

Especially this mother earth we are living on.

We live in a world full of opposite actions in my eyes.

It tends to be easier to give up and to never try.

Then to attempt at all and put positive energy towards thyself.

Next time you focus on a current thought.

Remember it is nothing more than your imagination messing with you.

Everything is only seen as perceived.

A thought is only a thought because we are told what a thought is.

We would be uncertain with everything if we were not told anything.

I have something to tell everyone.

A perspective of some sort.

Imagine your mind is a sky full of clouds.

You are laying down in the grass, observing the clouds.

You are in your own mind observing your own thoughts and each thought is a cloud.

Your mind is constantly filtering thoughts from all around

The thoughts in your mind.

Are similar to the clouds in the sky.

Just let the clouds be.

Each cloud is a different moment lived in life.

Or a dream of some sort.

Endless clouds appear in your mind.

Attempt to not get caught up in a different moment in life besides this very moment.

Most live in other moments of life than this very moment.

Ignoring life itself attempting to fix past actions that have already occurred.

Ignore concentrating on any of the clouds.

Or you will end up ignoring life itself.

Focusing on a moment besides this very moment.

Ignoring what is happening right now.

Many overwhelm themselves.

Entering a depressive thought pattern.

Trying to fix the past.

All you can do is become the greatest you that there is.

Let your mind be free and think nothing.

Let the clouds flow and accept what you see and feel.

Remember you are only in so much control.

Keep the mind at ease.

That is unless you want to become unpleased.

There are many stages of “you” that will happen throughout this lifetime.

The challenge is to never give up on thyself.

Most give up on themselves.

Never seeing their greatest potential in this lifetime.

Anything is as possible as you make it.

If you decide to manifest nothing but negative thoughts.

Nothing but negative thoughts will appear in your reality.

The mind is a very tricky game.

We may all see a cloud.

Each cloud is a different thought within your mind.

A group of people will look at one cloud.

Within one cloud is one hundred different clouds.

In the end, the cloud perceived to be infinite clouds.

One idea or thought will mean something different to each soul.

We are all alike.

Then again all original in our own unique ways.

Ignore getting lost in the depths of your mind.

The mind can easily create new pathways of thinking.

I thought of this analogy a few hours ago.

Imagine a mouse or rat.

There are 3 tunnels the rat can enter.

The first tunnel is a negative pathway.

The second tunnel is a positive pathway

The third tunnel is the letting it be or ignoring pathway.

Imagine the rat is a thought.

The mind decides what pathway to lead down.

Imagine this occurring in your brain.

The story of the rat I just told.

This is my easiest way of explaining myself.

Each thought transcends to the next.

It is a maze of continuous thoughts.

If you continue to think a certain way or act a certain way.

Your mind can adapt over time and change is possible.

In the end, there can be infinite tunnels.

I decide to use these three tunnels.

Negative, positive and letting it be.

This is the simplest way for me to explain my thoughts.

One thought can destroy you or create you.

Be wise when letting your mind think.

Do not follow the wrong pathway of thinking.

If you think one thought it usually continues and continues until the thought is done being thought of.

Manifest light and love.

All it takes is looking within yourself.

If you look within yourself and believe enough.

Anything is possible no matter what anyone says.

You are better off acting instead of saying what you will do.

If you say what you will do in this world.

Then never do what you said.

That means you did not live up to your own words.

Do not doubt yourself and remember to believe in anything that you can imagine.

If anything manifests positive thoughts.

Attempt your best to walk down the “correct” path.

If anything you failed at being yourself.

Oh no.

You attempted to be yourself.

You failed at attempting to be the real you.

I recommend you be yourself for a day.

Do not knock it till you try it.

Think about it.

If you think about it and you do not want to be yourself I guess that is what you decide for yourself.

Remember this life is yours.

Anything is possible.

Do not blame others for your position in this life.

You are in control of your own destiny.

Do not let others control your life for you.

Otherwise, this life that you are living.

Is not the you that is here in this moment.

Use nothing but peace and love when dealing with others.

In the end, if people are negative.

Usually, they do not notice their negativity.

The individual is so caught up in being negative.

They cannot observe or see their negative self in action.

Your perception of your self-means more than the perception others have towards you.

Then again some people care what others think about them more than what the individual thinks about themselves.

All I care about is the perception of myself.

If someone wishes to think something negative or project negative energy towards me.

So be it.

With understanding you will come to the realization we are all idiots and no one is correct or incorrect.

I say this in peace.

Between life and death nothing matters but everything matters at the same time.

Ignore creating a life full of despair and pessimistic thinking.

Live this life and remember to be.

To be.

Or to not be.

There is no need to be battling and challenging each other’s egos.

Love is all we need.

Each day sets us up for more greatness and positivity.

It is just your perception of the world.

No matter what you do.

The sun will rise and show again.

However.

The next morning some people will never learn how to love.

No matter what you do.

Some will never understand.

That gives you no right to give up.

Believe in yourself and do not forget who the real you is.

Look within.

Meditate often and your inner self will speak to you.

When you meditate you can control and focus on your thought patterns.

Good luck with your journey, my friends.

I send nothing but love and positivity to everyone.

Remember to not get caught up in the thoughts of your mind.

Instead, it is wiser to be.

Similar to a tree.

Just be calm and observe.

Grow as you grow and create no control.

Ego is limited.

The individual is only limited to so much.

Lose the ego and you will find your soul.

Lose your soul and you will find your ego.

Everything is the imagination.

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………

Quote #31 Repost (New Addition)

w31

Judging others for how you feel, it makes sense. Try to take it out in a positive way. Not aggressive.

The hurt have been hurt.

People often forget to transfer the negative energy into positive. Creating more ignorance in the world.

Guns are better than love.

What an insane world we live in.

We are beings made to create conflict. To forcefully have thoughts about everything.

The conscious was created to have conflict and to argue about things. Have an opinion.

The challenge is between the people and the earth is living proof that we are failing as a world and nation. Anger and greed destroy the world.

There is always time to improve things, we better start sooner than later.

People live their lives as if it is their last in the depressing and sad way. Not beautiful and in love.

Try to appreciate the moments as they pass by. Instead of being bitter and angry. Complaining about every little thing that your mind thinks about.

Just take a deep breath, look into the beautiful painted sunset in the sky and appreciate the moment for how it is.

Right now you could be in pure darkness and death. Nothing could be happening.

A dark room with no view and no noises or the idea of thyself. All you could do is think in your subconscious. Possessing only the echo of the mind.

There would be no past experiences or future ideas.

You would be born into nothingness and leave this world into nothingness.

As if you were never really here in the first place.

Imagine that.

Everything within all your moments put together being gone forever and to never be seen again.

Your life will flash before your eyes. One moment you are here the next you are gone.

It is as if you never lived.

Life is nothing but an illusion. You might as well start living “now.”

In a way, death or darkness is similar to mediation.

You are in pure darkness.

In mediation, you lose control of thyself. No sound and you get lost within the depths of the mind.

The main focus is to think nothing and after you think nothing you become nothing.

Similar to darkness or death.

I suggest meditation for everyone.

It is easy to get lost in the meditation.

You forget your ego and drift off.

It is an eye-opening experience. “Third Eye.”

Life itself is a gift, maybe you think I’m wrong but like I said.

That is the challenge, to accept others for their thoughts and ideas.

If not agreed on using rational talking and discussing. Problems can be figured out in a peaceful way.

In the world, we live in today. To relieve one’s stress we do the opposite of everything we should be doing.

Love is the answer in my eyes.

Love is the only thing that can heal this world.

An abundance of love and nothing else.

There is no pill or secret weapon besides true pure love.

Giving an individual the love and attention they need. Most likely they will not latch out.

The hurt have been hurt.

The hurt souls are reflections of others.

The “bad guy” Is confused and uncertain about what he is doing.

Moving without thought or idea.

Being ignorant. Attacking one’s side saying thyself is correct and the other is wrong.

To say someone is wrong and thyself is correct is not a discussion of peace and love.

More like bullets and pulling on legs. Anger and greed thinking of only thyself importance.

The other to be ignored and not cared about.

I don’t see any love in that.

Without receiving love it is difficult to give love, maybe you can but most can’t.

Love others and pass it on to everyone.

After we figure out nothing works the worst situation happens.

Then we learn, but too bad it will be too late.

The actions already happened and there is no going back.

Be aware of what is going on and what you do to others. If the words you wish to speak are nothing of love or the actions of positivity, keep them to yourself.

All you will do is hurt yourself and all the ones around you.

I’m going to continue spreading love everywhere I go and maybe people will tag along with me.

Remember when someone is being ignorant, they are just confused and a misunderstood person.

There is no correct or incorrect.

A 6 can be a 9 and a 9 can be a 6.

It is just the perspective you want to choose.

Whatever you choose to think, creates thyself.

Not thyself into everyone else.

Become you and do not try to create others into something they are not. We will all have different intentions and such in this world.

I send love and happiness to everyone, have a beautiful day! 🙂

Judge me as you want, it will not bother me. We are just two different individual human beings.

Try the best to lose the ego, the self-worth of thyself. It is more on the individual’s self to control the ego compared to anyone else. We all have an ego. I’m in the process of losing my ego.

The ego destroys itself thinking it is correct, but usually is guided in the opposite way intended.

Keep to yourself unless the intention is appropriate. The intention you have creates or destroys the moment. Reading people’s intentions are quite easy. Respect is the best thing to acquire from others. It is rare these days.

The ego destroys the individual

To not have an ego. Is to have an ego. I thought to not have an ego, therefore to not think I have an ego. I do have an ego and so do you. It is just how we control it. The ego is similar to a mask or cloak. At any given moment you can put it on and take it off. The actions, words and the amount of energy adds up to each individual. Representing their ego.

To create or destroy thyself.

Jimi Hendrix

DSC_0878

The drawing is finally complete after countless hours and many late nights. I was awake till 1:30 am finishing this. So technically the same day I’m posting it hahaha.

I didn’t think to look at the time till I was finished with the drawing itself. I couldn’t sleep till I finished the drawing. Sleep or art, it’s a difficult choice. I wish I didn’t have to sleep at all, instead I could create art throughout each and every night.

The nights I know I don’t work the next day or I have nothing going on I’ll stay up quite late and draw as much as my mind lets me. I get lost within my own imaginative world. Within that Imaginative world, I created this drawing.

The journey of this drawing was similar to a roller coaster. At times I had no idea what I was doing and was going with the flow. Then at times, I guess you can say I think I knew what I was doing.

I feel as If I have no idea what is going on when I draw, but I just do what my soul tells me. I’ll change my mind about what to do about one million times. The end result of the drawing has an infinite amount of possibilities. I could have used any color or any shape while creating this.

I’d say it’s more of the universe creating the art than myself. I get into an art “nirvana” and get completely lost within my own world. Creating away while the rest of the world is busy doing earth like things.

The Final drawing is of Jimi Hendrix.

The red colors were the most challenging out of the whole entire drawing itself. I bet there are 4 different shades of red in each shape. In the end, it’s something of my own color. A lot of different reds mixed together. The way they name, colors is very precise.

If you didn’t know I use Prismacolor colored pencils on my drawings. I’ll explain how I create and blend the colors. I have this piece of paper on the side of my drawing table. In the past, I’ve used it more than I do now.

If I’m uncertain of using a color. I apply the color to the paper to see what It’ll look like. I’m to a point now where I look at a color and I trust within my heart the color is correct. If I’m certain of the color I don’t use the paper at all. I attempt my best to ignore the paper to improve my art skills.

Colors are kinda similar to math. I’ll explain. Certain colors when mixed create certain tones and shades. Or possibly creating a whole new color itself. It’s like a formula that has to be added up together to create a final outcome. A formula for math or a formula of colors. It’s a weird analogy my mind thought of.

I’m a mad scientist with many colors and I have one ridiculous imagination.

I won’t say for sure what represents what in the image. That’s for you to create with your own imagination. Observe the image carefully and with all the time you please.

This is one main factor of my art. I let the viewer create their own image and that’s a manifestation of their own thoughts. We’ll all see something different, but alike in the end.

I’ve been learning how to use my camera for a while now. I feel I can take a more improved picture, but I’m still learning. Stay with me, hahahahaha.

As I leave you to observe the drawing.

Here are a few quotes I’d like to share by Jimi Hendrix. I relate to what he says within each quote. I’m sure many other individuals will as well.

-“When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.”

-“I used to live in a room full of mirrors; all I could see was me. I take my spirit and I crash my mirrors, now the whole world is here for me to see.”

-“I’m the one that has to die when it’s time for me to die, so let me live my life, the way I want to”

-“[In response to being asked if his band does gimmicks]Gimmicks, here we go again, gimmicks man, I’m tired of people saying we’re…. gimmicks, what is this? The world is nothing but a big gimmick, isn’t it? Wars, napalm bombs, all that, people getting burned up on tv and it’s nothing but a stunt. Gimmick. Yes we do.”

-“You have to give people something to dream on.”

– “The story of life is quicker then the blink of an eye, the story of love is hello, goodbye.”

– “White collar conservative flashin down the street, pointing that plastic finger at me, they all assume my kind will drop and die, but I’m gonna wave my freak flag high.”

– “If it was up to me, there wouldn’t be no such thing as the establishment.”

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

I’m not sure if I have an Idol or look up to anyone. In life, all I’m trying to do is be myself. Be the greatest version I can become. But if I were to look up to someone and want to be similar to someone it would be Jimi.

I wasn’t alive to experience him in person, but his soul and energy will last in this world forever. He was a loved man by many individuals and is truly missed.

Thank you for observing my art and I appreciate the love and energy everyone puts towards my craft.

Much love!

Second repost. Thank you, the love is felt in abundance.

This is my second time sharing a repost. When you read the response don’t judge the words. It looks like this person had a lot of emotions flowing out at once.

We’re all imperfect with language. When I post my writings and blog posts. I know for a fact I don’t have everything perfect. Each day you improve more and more.

I’d like to say some things after receiving this response from the quote that was read.

This one happened to have a mass amount of energy within it. The moment you have a realization is the greatest moment you can have.

It’s at this moment you accept the demons and flaws. You realize life is actually beautiful and everything is worth it in the end.

life will be quite challenging it’s a challenge for everyone to accept thyself. It might seem to be easy to accept yourself, but it’s the hardest thing you can literally do.

You’ll manifest every amount of energy you produce within this world back to thyself. One way or another. It could be a bad day. Horrible luck constantly. Or just something as simple as negativity.

Manifest negative thoughts and you’ll become negative.

Manifest positive thoughts and you’ll become positive.

Each day is a new day to become a greater version of thyself. Just remember to never give up. The universe hasn’t given up on you so you shouldn’t give up on the universe.

Life is similar to a very complex game. All you have to do is attract and manifest the things full of love and positive energy,

If all you do is hate and feel all the negative feelings you’ll continue to feel and think all these things. No one is perfect and we’re all addicted to something or sinners you can say. No one is perfect. A world of imperfect souls, competing to race ahead of one another every moment in life.

The only race you have is the race against thyself. That’s it.

I never thought My writings would create such a big impact on the souls of this world. My writings seem to be getting more attention than my images or drawings. I understand why though. The words connect to people and it’s similar to entering their soul.

A key has entered each person’s heart and the doors open and the words flow in. All emotions felt. The soul is reached.

I’m happy that the thoughts and ideas within my mind make people feel this way. All I ask for is peace, love, happiness and harmony in this world. For all the hatred to leave. You can’t even be on the internet or go in public without hearing or seeing negative energy

At the moment negativity overrides this earth and the love is lost within the air, but is here to be found. It’s just upon you to create the love and to create the positivity.

Much love and happiness to all the souls out there, even the ones who don’t wish to be loved. I send you love as well. The ones who don’t receive any form of love I love you too.

Remember to love thyself, and don’t forget to do so.

Thank you.

Much love!

I normally don’t share reposts. Thank you, the love is felt in abundance.

This is my first time sharing a repost. When you read the response don’t judge the words. It looks like this person had a lot of emotions flowing out at once.

We’re all imperfect with language. When I post my writings and blog posts. I know for a fact I don’t have everything perfect. Each day you improve more and more.

I’d like to say some things after receiving this response from the quote that was read.

This one happened to have a mass amount of energy within it. The moment you have a realization is the greatest moment you can have.

It’s at this moment you accept the demons and flaws. You realize life is actually beautiful and everything is worth it in the end.

life will be quite challenging it’s a challenge for everyone to accept thyself. It might seem to be easy to accept yourself, but it’s the hardest thing you can literally do.

You’ll manifest every amount of energy you produce within this world back to thyself. One way or another. It could be a bad day. Horrible luck constantly. Or just something as simple as negativity.

Manifest negative thoughts and you’ll become negative.

Manifest positive thoughts and you’ll become positive.

Each day is a new day to become a greater version of thyself. Just remember to never give up. The universe hasn’t given up on you so you shouldn’t give up on the universe.

Life is similar to a very complex game. All you have to do is attract and manifest the things full of love and positive energy,

If all you do is hate and feel all the negative feelings you’ll continue to feel and think all these things. No one is perfect and we’re all addicted to something or sinners you can say. No one is perfect. A world of imperfect souls, competing to race ahead of one another every moment in life.

The only race you have is the race against thyself. That’s it.

I never thought My writings would create such a big impact on the souls of this world. My writings seem to be getting more attention than my images or drawings. I understand why though. The words connect to people and it’s similar to entering their soul.

A key has entered each person’s heart and the doors open and the words flow in. All emotions felt. The soul is reached.

I’m happy that the thoughts and ideas within my mind make people feel this way. All I ask for is peace, love, and harmony in this world. For all the hatred to leave. You can’t even be on the internet or go in public without hearing or seeing negative energy

At the moment negativity overrides this earth and the love is lost within the air, but is here to be found. It’s just upon you to create the love and create the positivity.

Much love and happiness to all the souls out there, even the ones who don’t wish to be loved. I send you love as well. The ones who don’t receive any form of love I love you too.

Remember to love thyself, and don’t forget to do so.

Thank you.

Much love!

1 Year Anniversary/Milestone. (Thank You)

year 1

So it has been a year apparently, this is what WordPress is notifying me with. 1 year, that wasn’t that long ago. I remember the day making this blog, it felt like yesterday. Others have helped me get where I’m today.

Life is nothing much but a team effort, with just yourself it’s quite hard to accomplish anything. Someone will help you at least one way or another. Throughout this year, I have got a lot of help from many people. Without these people, I wouldn’t be here at this very moment typing this. Possibly doing something else and not even focusing a single amount of energy towards art.

I remember all the times I didn’t create art at all. Those were the worst times, things always had a negative energy towards them. I walked around angry and depressed at this world. More lost than I’m now. We’re all lost humans, all lost in our own ways.

Have it be emotional problems, health issues, insecurities…… etc. I think most will understand what I’m saying. We’re all prisoners of our own minds. All sitting within a chair in the middle of a dark room to see nothing but pure darkness. Every thought and memory to creep up on you. As if nothing but words and visions are monsters attacking you while you defend them off.

Visions are played through your mind over and over to never forget. It’s only the things you wish to forget that you don’t forget, how Ironic. The mind is a tricky thing.

Throughout this year, I have learned quite a lot. In all different aspects of life, good and bad. That’s just how it’s. Moments will not always be great, but just attempt to make them greater than they seem to be.

Saying this, art has found me in life. or maybe I found the art, who knows. I guess either way works if you think about it.

Now I sit here, 1 year later from the day I typed up my first blog post. An individual who didn’t know what he was doing. This person was so dazed and confused they didn’t know what right from wrong was.

First Blog post: VVVVV

(Recommend reading this, will know me more as a person and understand more.)

https://chaoticshapes.com/2017/02/02/first-blog-post/

The reason why I say this is this.

“Everything I have done in my life, each person has something to say about it. Each definition of their thought being their own. Then there are my thoughts, my ideas, and my emotions. Never two humans alike, it’s as if you caused an offense of some sort. By speaking your state of mind. Being your original self and not a copy, creating your own destiny and not following a path someone gives you. A map with an X marks the spot. If you happen to do anything that someone doesn’t like, the thought they will have towards you will be negative. If I’m happy doing what I’m doing, then there is no reason to stop, people often walk around and tell each other what’s up as if they know everything. If I’m happy doing what I do in the end. Then I’ll continue doing so, even if it means the whole world not accepting me. I rather accept myself than have a bunch of people accept me for who I’m not. Nothing much, but a false reality. happiness is different for everyone and no one will understand but yourself. If it means losing individuals and possessions, then I guess you do that. All I wish to be is happy and that’s it, that’s all I want and nothing else.”

This is the reason why I have changed so drastically in the past year or so. My mindset has changed a lot. It’s all about your mindset and you can accomplish anything you wish to do in this world.

Many will tell you that you can’t do something. With that mindset in your mind, that will just do nothing but destroy you. Take you down and make you feel like a nobody. I’ve learned to turn the negative energy into positive energy. Creating myself into who I’m today. This “Brandon Knoll” we speak of.

All I wish for is peace and love in this world, for the energy of love to spread like a virus of some sort. Nationwide love and nothing else. Peace with all humans. I’ve been told by many that all the thing I think are just “dreams” or “not possible.’ I’m pretty sure all the people that “succeeded” were told this too. So, in the end, it’s nothing but an ego of a person spewing words out of their mouth. Negative energy flowing from all areas. Some people just don’t understand I guess.

All I ask for is Love from each individual, no matter what they look like or sound like. None of that really matters in the end, it’s more about the soul of a human being.

A way I can find my happiness is through art and writing. Sharing my experiences with the world through art. Art is an energy form of itself in a way. A whole new creation brought into this world. Never seen before.

Not knowing what I was doing a year ago, I’ve learned a little bit. You always have more time for learning, no one knows too much or too little. This journey of life will be endless and it will never end, till you make it end.

“I’d like to thank everyone for following me on WordPress and all other people who support me as well. As an artist, you wouldn’t be where you’re if it wasn’t for the people. the people create the artist. So, in the end, my audience creates me. All of you are my “art family” I have good connections with a lot of individuals. Like I said, all I ask for is peace and love.

If it wasn’t for that one day I decided in my mind, “I’m going to be an artist.” Like I said at the begging of this post. I wouldn’t be here or have created a single piece of art.

All of this art I’m about to show you could have just been a “dream” or an “impossible idea” but somehow I sit here typing this.

It’s very hard to process life itself to me, every day I question everything and my existence. Being an artist my goal is to make you question your reality, but also question my reality as well. Be so creative that it takes me to a whole new level, every day I learn something new. I just can’t give up and the progress will keep on continuing.

I want everyone to remember don’t give up on yourself and seek for small improvements over time everything will add up. Just don’t rush the process and let it happen.

I’d like to share all of my analytics with everyone to show the progress and the improvements that have happened in the past year. Not doing this to shine my ego, but to show everyone that anyone can do anything. All you have to do is set your mind to it.

Here are all the pieces of art from the year. The average drawing took a month or so, sometimes longer or shorter than a month.

I’d like to say thank you to everyone who has followed and who is following at the moment. wouldn’t be here without you. Thanks for letting me reach this milestone.

Much more to come this year……….

Let’s see what happens in 2018, the possibilities could be infinite. the future is unpredictable.

Quote #37

37.jpg

Anger is nowhere to be found. It’s not in the room or area you’re within. Look all around and nothing is there. Anger doesn’t come to attack you. It’s not hiding around the corner. Anger is created within thyself.

You have to think to become angry, then anger arises. The doors to anger have the potential to lead to 1,000,000 doors. But so does happiness. All emotions do, but I doubt, anger creates the best future.

Anger is not here but thought upon. After thinking to be angry an action of some sort happens. Usually leading to something negative and not positive. Putting more negativity in this world and not creating a positive world. People pulling each other to the ground, with the pain they feel within themselves. Out of selfishness and lost feelings within. Only someone who is understanding doesn’t become angry. Someone, who can listen without judgment. An opened minded spirit and soul. Not someone who is instantly judgmental. Concluding to a final answer of their own. Other ignored.

First, you should think of the other person. What if you happened to be in their shoes. Would you like the way you’re treating this person? Imagine if a screen was put in front of you, and you watched what happened. This was a recording of yourself. Put directly in front of your eyes.

Would smiles or frowns come to your face? positive or negative thoughts? Would you be proud of this reflection? The actions and things this reflection were doing. Or would you question what’s happening?

Everything you see right now is a reflection of yourself. Every emotion or thought is a reflection of yourself. Creating you and no one else. All that you think and do is you. Actions speak much louder than words.

What you put out into this world you will achieve. If all you do is put negativity in this world you will be given negativity. If you’re positive expect a positive life. Yes, bad things will still occur in a positive life, everything has to end eventually. That’s an accepted rule. We all die and all live. Everything works one way and then another. Vice versa. It’s just better off to be happy in the end.

The universe deals all its player’s different cards at all times of the day. The way you decide to play the game and the moves you make. Conclude to the outcome of the game. Many pathways to lead down. Infinite adventures. We all win and all loose. Just don’t give up on yourself. The universe hasn’t given up so neither should you.

It’s better off being positive in a negative situation because, in the end, the outcome will be the greatest.

We’ll all become angry here and there, but don’t let anger consume your soul. Don’t be that angry, bitter person. Unless if that’s what you want, go for it.

Everything in this life is an act. An act leads to some sort of emotions or thought. Ending up in some sort of storyline or action you can say. Problems, thoughts, solution.

A problem occurs, then a thought happens. A single thought has to be created and then agreed within your mind. Then this thought is either acted or ignored. Creating the game of life.

See, think and do.

A moment, thought, action.

Present, past, and future all in one moment.

Not sure if I said that correct. Someone will understand.

But usually, in a situation, there is a problem. The problem has to be figured out. Then the figured out problem leads to another thing. A 3 step process. That’s what I see in my head.

Anger is a game you have to fight against. All emotions are created upon yourself. Without action or thought, we would all be similar to robots, rocks, puppets or cages with nothing put on the inside. Emptiness. You might feel empty or angry, but we all do. No need to take the frustration out on others.

If you feel negative get ride of the emotions in a positive way or you’ll just cause more destruction in the end. Easier said than done.

Attempt at your best to be the most positive you can, yes you’ll feel “anger” or some sort of emotions but don’t just act. Think of what you’re about to do. Think before you do something.

 

This is my last thought. School, in school we never really learned anything about emotion. Nothing, it was ignored.

I look at the world and see lots of unhappy and unloving people/souls. I always question what we really learned in school. It felt like more of a memory game than anything else.

Only one answer to each individual question. No individuality. #1 is answer A. #8 is answer D. Neverending. Art and emotion lost and forgotten.

Everything I have or posses just ignored, because you know it’s the “real world”. Art is just an act of play, that’s what school told me. Unless you’re artistic yourself it’s hard to understand. Most don’t. But in this life, I’m here to accept myself and not for others to accept me. Accept me or don’t I could rather careless. It’s more about what the individual visions and seeks not another person, not even within their soul.

This life is all about freedom, do what your heart desires. Seek and adventure for a happiness in this world.

All forms of art express emotion and love. The things ignored in normal school. A normal school is not for the artistic or different individuals. You can’t express yourself in any way, instead, you are given a bunch of books and tests and crazy nonsense. It all makes no sense in the end. I would be the kid to just put my name on the test and turn it in, maybe doodle on it. But no, the ignorance within I hated school with a passion.

It felt as if school hated me. I didn’t belong in that place.

But what do I have to say, I’m just a kid who draws pictures and then colors them in. At the end of the day, everything is just opinionated.

You control you and no other does. That’s your job.

It’s as if emotions were purposely ignored. No one likes to speak of emotions or things they fear. Those are the things we hide behind are reflections for. The things we don’t accept ourselves for. The mirror is scary to look in for some, it shouldn’t be like that.

Love and appreciate yourself. You can always become greater in life, just don’t give up or you won’t see the results. The results are within your hands it’s just you gave up quite easily.

Love and all emotions were never taught in school. The things people feel within. I had a few art classes not many as I should have taken. My “subject” if that’s what you want to call it was ignored. Most other things were more important, and that’s kinda how it works in most schools.

Recently read an article about where some places, don’t even have art classes in school. Politicians were saying it was a “Waste of time.” “Have better things to do.”

If I were to attend at one of those schools in the past, I wouldn’t be here talking at this very moment. Very sad to say this, but it’s very true.

Many other artists never showed their true potential within.

Art and emotion are always forgotten.

It was just a matching game of some sort. Memory and then the memory was applied, to never remember again. Emotions and soul forgot, but test scores and numbers only worried about. Act and GPA. Labels of “smartness.”

If there was an ACT of art, well I would want the whole world to take a test. I’ll grade it, then we’ll see what the outcome is. You have 40-80 hours and 2-4 weeks.

Go………

Emotions create individuality. Art lets you express that, nothing else does. If it wasn’t for the art I probably wouldn’t be here. It’s the only thing I have in this world. Most don’t understand that and it’s okay. No one has to understand anything.

The grass is green because the grass is green. If you asked the creator I bet something similar between these lines would be said “There is no answer, that’s just the way it’s supposed to be. Don’t look for an answer, accept it and move on.”

We all went to school, or most have. If you haven’t it doesn’t mean you aren’t worth anything. You can do this thing called “succeeding” too. Maybe not in other peoples eyes but in your eyes you have succeeded.

It’s more about the way you look at “succeeding” compared to what others think. All of our lives are different. There is no one correct or one wrong. Just your perspective.

What did we ever learn in school? I don’t remember much, my subject was ignored. Every other subject had some sort of attention. Art is frowned upon to most “school” people. Some rather call it a “hobby” or “another interest.” For me, it’s a career. Call it what you want, the negativity is just an insecurity you pulled out of yourself.

 

Why can’t some just accept that art is a real thing? If I were to be saying my opinions about everyone else’s lives. First I would be abusing my ego to the max, second wars would just start and third I have no reason to make a fuss with anyone. I could go on listing why I shouldn’t be up in anyone’s business for countless hours. Just don’t create drama, be a positive, humble being.

I’m loving and humble, that’s all I’m.

Most negative emotions or actions are just an insecurity brought out of yourself throw on to another person to deal with. Insecurity at it’s best. Not dealt with and thrown at someone else.

In the end, we’re all lost human beings. No one is better than another. All the same in the end, the ego-destroying thyself. Every time, this egotistic world is killing me.

All people do is care for themselves and no one else. It’s a receive and take world. No loving and giving. Just greed/take and unhappiness.

Maybe one day we will “learn” something. School mislead me and guided me into a path or “career” I never wanted but almost accepted upon. Art wasn’t a thought in my mind because every single person and I’m not kidding, every single person, but 1 or 2 told me I could do it.

So about 2 secure people. I believe anything is possible, it just takes time and effort. Most probably look at me as a fool of some sort. I preach happiness, love, and all this crazy nonsense. But I do these things because of the same reasons why you do your daily things. We’re all different and just imagine a different reality of life. Not all will accept each other’s thoughts, that’s just the way it’s.

No reason why we can’t talk peacefully and with love and figure things out. Guess that is too hard to do in this day and age. You’ll end up dying even though we all technically have “freedom of speech” hahaha. There are limits or you get arrested or judged. kinda how I’m taking right now. Talking to myself, but other hearing me in the moment.

My “freedom of speech” will more than likely have people hate me or love me. So I might as well do what I love and what makes me happy. Or I could just fake my happiness and stay quite my whole life. Just like how many living in this reality do. Speak up and create your originality, express yourself. Have faith in yourself and don’t give up. Greatness lies within you.

This is selfish in a way, but self-love is something great to possess. It’s worth more than anything. Every day is another day to work and love yourself.

My art, for example, someone could ask why I put a certain shape or color somewhere. Let’s say that happens.

This person is wearing a white plain t-shirt. I ask them this “Why do you wear that white t-shirt. Why not a red one or a blue one?”

This person says “I don’t know, just happened to grab it out of my closet.”

I would say nothing but a single word.

“same.”

There doesn’t have to be a reason for everything. But in a way, yes there’s a reason for everything. I guess it’s from the perspective of the person.

I create art, write and live quite a different life than most. Not the typical everyday person. That’s the individuality in me. Always try my best to be myself and not fear others reactions or opinions. Not everyone will accept your way of life, but it’s better to accept yourself than a fake version of yourself that’s not even here.

Acceptance in this world is hard to achieve, but I’m slowly doing it. I hope others can join me in the process. When each person has accepted themselves, then the ego disappears. The thing in-between your mind that isn’t there.

We’re all made up of nothing but this flesh body with a skeleton structure. Given organs and a conscious walking around. That’s all I see, nothing more than that.

The world gets ahead of everyone so fast. We all need to slow down a little bit, time will only give you an answer.

Ignorance is mans best friend, anger can lead you to 1,000,000 doors, but so can any other emotion. Anger probably isn’t the best emotion to decide in the moment. Pick a different emotion to feel. Think about the other besides yourself, enter their shoes. Imagine being them for one day. Be a loving and humble person, not ignorant and unloving.

Your emotions and thoughts create who you’re as a person, the soul within. This body is nothing but a mere reflection. Within is who you truly are, the emotions and feelings.

Not numbers and statistics. Or the possessions you possess. The awards you have won. Or anything in that vicinity. The things that build your ego. It’s all a game of who’s higher ranked. The more the better, or possibly the opposite. The more, the more lost. That’s just my opinion, not yours or anyone else.

But the personality and loving person you’re is what creates thyself and the soul.

I send love and happiness to everyone and everything!

Much love world! ❤

 

60,000 views, Thank you!

60k

This morning I saw my total views were almost past 60,000. In the past few hours, it passed 60k. I appreciate every single person who has looked at my art and writings.

It’s more about the time people spend reading and looking at my work that I appreciate the most.

Time is one of the most valuable things we have. Everyone gets 24 hours in a day. Depending what you spend your time on is your decision, not anyone else is in control of that besides yourself.

Just 5 minutes of your time is quite a lot to me. If you were to add up all the time people spent reading your blog posts. That would be interesting.

Thank you, each and every one of you. I appreciate the support and effort people put towards my art.

The good and the bad. Not everyone will like your art, but that is okay. Not everyone will, certain individuals are attracted toward certain things. It doesn’t mean you should give up. Peoples thoughts about you don’t have to become your reality. If something makes you happy continue doing it.

If I were to show you art from when I was 13 or 14. You’d probably laugh and make a joke of it. People actually did. Middle school is when I kinda really started. I found this style a little bit, started experimenting. In high school, I stopped for a bit. Then continued and then stopped again.

Now I’m here again and this time I’m not giving up. The change and Improvement show it just takes time. Don’t give up on yourself be patient. No matter the circumstance, even if it’s not art. Just be patient and it will come at the right moment in time. Will post some of my older drawings to show examples, most weren’t originals. All the ones I have posted now are originals.

In my every day to day life, I forget I make art. I’ve told this to people before. It’s weird, I don’t understand. Neither do I know how to explain it. I just kinda make it, have fun and don’t force anything. Forced art doesn’t make sense to me. I’m an artist and i have no idea why, hahaha. I Must sound very crazy. It’s just something I enjoy and picked up as a child. Now I’m here.

Thank you one more time. Peace, love, and happiness to everyone! 🙂

Remeber to not give up on yourself, it’s just words playing with your mind. Don’t listen to all the mind games. Live your life stress-free. You can obtain what’s within your heart, just don’t give up.

The little changes create the big changes over time. Making the game of life much more exciting. When comparing stats side by side, you can see the improvements. In a way, it inspires you to create more. But I can’t have the numbers go to my head, It’s more about having quality art. The numbers will come over time.

Thank you from every country that has visited my website, even the ones not over 1,000. I’m not going to forget a single person. Everyone matters the same amount to me.

Thanks for letting me achieve all of this, have a great night everyone! 🙂

Much love to this world and the people in it. ❤
