Art Inside Me

The freedom that comes with acceptance has to start with ourselves. There is a dialogue within us, sometimes “hidden”, that speaks to us in each moment. When we uncover and connect to our inner voice, we can learn to participate in all that makes us human, be created synergy within ourselves and nature. It is the key to true happiness, and this alignment is needed to start to do our work in the world.

Open to yourself first, feel the chips fall off your shoulders, bristles lay down, and the armor that we shield our hearts with disappear. Now you get what you’ve always wanted…accept yourself for who you really are first, and the world will do the same. This is the key to deeper and more meaningful relationships with yourself and others. It unlocks your purpose, your passion and your meaning. Use the tools from your childhood in a fun and engaging way to uncover your hidden dialogue on canvas, it is your story, and a beautiful work of ART.

The equation for a Happy Life isn’t too complicated

A + E = H

“A” is adherence to whatever system we live in. The system is the “script”, it’s the
story that we believe that will lead us to a meaningful life. It usually describes a well-worn path to follow... paved by the bricks of conventional thought. How we exist within those conventions may or may not leave us fulfilled and satisfied. If you have followed this path, and have ever questioned “Is this it?”, consider that the answer may not be in checking the boxes, but in stepping outside them.

“E” is our emotional connections, our core essence of who we are and what drives
us. It is intuitive creativity, self-awareness, love, etc....the intangibles that are associated with our basic needs. It is what connects us all, because our personal well-being is dependent on the well-being of others. When we accept, connect and nourish the seeds that were planted in our hearts, “this is it?” turns into “THIS IS IT!!”

“H” is a Meaningful Life, full of purpose and passion. It is what we strive for, desire and is ultimately satisfying. A meaningful life is a mysterious adventure and includes all the peaks and valleys. It is a life where we are active participants in the stories that move through us all, it values the flow of humanity that moves us forward. It is rich and full of love of self, which leads to love of others.

Unfortunately we seem to have a lot of “A” and not enough “E”, and it is the emotional awareness that is the “rate limiting factor” towards achieving a truly meaningful life.

We knew what “E” was when we were kids, and I wonder at what point in our development do we begin to deny that core essence because we feel we must in order to belong. The goal of The ART Inside Me project is to protect that intuitiveness in children and reconnect us to it if is has become a little lost...

Perceptions of Beauty

Perception of Beauty If, along our paths, we came in contact with such a thing that would cause us to sprout a flower from our hand occasionally…and that flower was perceived as beautiful…we would not only embrace it, others would seek out the source of the flower and wish to make it their own.

Their Voices

We have something to learn from our kids.  I could not have imagined how inspiring the voices of kids from age 5 to 13 would be, they are wise beyond the credit we give them.  They know who they are, they know what they are passionate about, they are fearless.  Do you remember what it Read More
