Through out human history sanctuary is considered a sacred place.
Finding a sanctuary place on earth is easy to find in a book called -
Mythology – The Illustrated Anthology of World Myth and Storytelling.
Many moons ago, someone asked me, what do you want for Christmas, I said this book.
The stories, the pictures, the colors, and the energy that comes from different cultures around the world are fantastic!!!
To understand what sanctuary means in many cultures around the world, is to step into their world.
Sanctuary around the world is connection through energy that brings life.
To visit your own sanctuary is to just make a short trip inside of your self. It is a wonderland of energy you have provided for you.
Sanctuary starts with peace of mind in the mental body. Then travels down the road called the physical body of being. Then slips into the world of the emotional body of being. The collections of all the energies of those 3 bodies of being are then stored, into the spiritual body of being, for future reference in the next life time.
Sanctuary is but merely a place of sanctity of tranquility. Tranquility is the same as – AKA – where you hang your hat is your home, or a different flavor of thought, home is where your heart is. A house is just a house when the heart is not home.
What is your spark that leads you on the road to your tranquility?
Everyday is an adventure.
Smack in the middle of chaos, do you hear the melodies of bliss?
Each moment in time is a blessing. A connection of hearts.
Time will pass, years down the road,
was it really that important to miss the melodies of bliss?
Find the symphony of energy in your heart today,
and share some smiles they are contagious :-)
Step back in time for just a moment. It’s a beautiful day outside, you are very young, and you look out the window as a new day is emerging on the scene called life. As your mind begins to wonder, where do all the stars come from, as they are fading away as the sun begins to peak over the horizon. You have wonderment of innocence, as you are amazed as all the little stars begin to fade away, because the light becomes so bright from the new sun.
Each day we live in a world of wonderment of innocence same as you, when you were young. When you were young the world told you how things work. They work by telling you to put away childish things that do not help you progress in the world. The world of tangibles like money, for some odd reason you begin to believe what all the grown-ups say. That everyday wonderment slowly disappears, same as those stars when you were young.
This is what children around the world begin to believe as they lose their innocence of wonderment. The years roll by and in the blink of an eye you are much older. The stars no longer speak to you, because, your heart can no longer hear them. Your heart is all grown up now. Because, you are all grown up now you begin to fill your mind with what if games. The only – what if I did this could I change the past and make it better now, and maybe my job will get better, or maybe my marriage will have a new life of happiness, etc. The what if game in one’s own mind take control, because the world said let go of the wonderment.
People are all grown up and they forget about the wonderment of innocence. In a child’s mind it is important those little questions that need answered with love. When a child sees and is told that all the stars for example, are scientifically explained, all the wonderment and innocence begins to fade. The disconnection has begun. As the child then grows up the innocence is lost in the world they live in called society. This is the world of hustle and bustle of the business world. Sure the child is an adult now and does what society tells that child to do, because that child is now an adult. Now a product of society, basically a drone, basically a disconnection of heart from the world of wonderment and the toys are put away and replaced with responsibilities.
Do those responsibilities basically kill wonderment? This is the moment that many will choose substance in life, because responsibilities become over whelming. That child inside each and every single adult did not get their needs filled of the wonderment, in order to grow in personal growth. In the world of adults substance, is then what is called a bad thing, simply because it turns into an addiction.
The question then remains. If a child is able to keep wonderment alive at the same time understanding the world of morals, values, and ethics in the adult world of responsibility, would then the child have a chance to grow in personal growth, in the direction of that own child’s purpose as a spiritual being in this life time?
Bottom line – when you look at a child, do you see that child’s heart of wonderment and innocence, so that child can grow in happiness or responsibilities the way you see life?
I heard this song, and my heart just spoke.
The back drop of time,
is where we find,
the sea of emotions that are left behind.
Can you see the dying light that once stood behind the bleachers?
The epic time that once lived of paths that flow into now
The sea of energy that lights your day when it is night,
Time is but an energy,
We hold so dearly in our hearts,
Then we look in the mirror.
Where has time gone.
The back drop flows to far behind,
Was it just a dream or a reality of you and me?
I guess your heart flowed to me,
When time was young,
And we could see, time was only you and me.
Can you still hear the waves of the sea,
That called you to me?
The sea of love once lived in the back drop of time,
That was destined to find, two hearts that became one
In yesteryear so long ago, that was once a beautiful world,
That I was so lucky to find a heart to call mine,
As we intertwined two energies in land and sea,
And the earth stood still, at that brief moment.
When I kissed you heart and you kissed mine.
The back drop of time is but only a memory,
In the sea of emotions left behind.
I still hear your heart from time to time.
I send you love where ever you may be,
I wish you petals of love,
Where ever you lay your head at night.
Always remember no matter where you are,
The stars are our blanket, yours and mine,
And the moon is our night-light.
Love is but a memory that will always live
With only two hearts as one
in back drop of time,
is where we find,
the sea of emotions that are left behind.
Straight up ear candy at it’s finest, hahaha, BOOOOOM!!!
Turn up the speakers!! I have surround sound on my computer ;-)
Friday 14th 2014, is going to be a big day for me in the land of art. It will be my very first art booth in person. Very nervous of course. It will be a trial run for next months art competition.
In the early 90′s I entered a city art competition. After two weeks I was told, they could not judge my art and would have to change the rules. Only thing I thought is that’s is not fair.
So I did my research. Any art competition that is put on by any city nation wide is connected to the art guild. The art guide is the big leagues when it comes to the art world!!! They are the art critics in the art world. They know what type of brush you use, what kinda strokes you use, what number the brush is, if you paint hard or soft, the list goes on. It is like the world of Leonardo Da Vinci, Picasso, and all the greats.
So I was determined to be a city art competition. I use to make pottery many years ago and always wanted to have one of those big statues in front of one of those office buildings. To be able to have one of your pieces in front of a building is a dream come true.
I got away from art for many years, until my spirit told me in March 2014 it is time to draw and paint fractal animals. I really had no ideal what in the world a fractal animal was, let along make one. I listen to tons of music, more then most humans. I threw away my tv over 6 years ago, it was a waste of time for me.
I entered My first art competition on line in July and I won. I won with Fractal Goat. It ran on line from August through September 2014.
When I listen to the music it is music meditation. On one particular day I was listening to music and I picked up a pencil and started sketching. I began sketching my first Fractal animal named Tressence. Tressence is a Fractal Frog. Fractal animals are a combo of Chinese Feng Shui animals and Chinese astrology signs in fractal form. There are 17 animals in all and the series is called Kaleidoscope meet Fractalious. It is truly the most fun I have ever had creating these animals by hand!!!
One day in September my mom tells me there is an art competition for the city and you should check it out. I thought why bother, they will just say the same thing, because to me people are not ready for my art. The art is basically for the book. Just having a ton of fun making them. So I entered and believe me I was so excited when I got notice I was excepted in October 2014!!!
So each day I have always grown in personal growth to be better person than I was the day before. Finally after 20 years a dream came true to be in a city art competition. Even if I don’t win first place, in my heart I know I did cause I finally made it to the big leagues :-) I never had an art lesson in my life and I will be up against professionals, probably with years of experience.
I just hope everybody sends me wishes of good luck and thank you. Blessings :-)
When 2014 is over art will get put on the back burner, so I can get back into training and a vegan lifestyle :-)
