It gets pretty disheartening when we see the injustices in life around us.. sometimes they are too far and out of sight.. and other times they are at our front door.
We can complain.
We can do something about them.
It feels at times that it is too much for us and we become overwhelmed by it.. How can I, one person make a difference. But it is exactly that.. each of us, one by one, making a small difference that adds up to a greater difference.
One small thing.
Maybe it is a physical thing you do. Pick up a piece of garbage on the sidewalk instead of passing it by.
Maybe it is mental.. a change in attitude.. a perception that changes, so that we can change how we see what others may be seeing.. less judgemental.
How can we judge what another is going through? How can we be more compassionate?
It is through creating art that helps me change.. how I change my vision, my perception, of why I am here on this planet. It is through art that I am working on being more whole, more divinely connected, more community minded.
Our next opening, Sat. June 8, will be on the theme of how art heals ourselves and the planet.
As we become more balanced, more whole, we help to bring this wholeness into the world we live in, even if just our own neighborhood.
When we connect to the divine within us, and come to realize that we are all in this together, we can live a more sharing and compassion life. Help each other more and be kind to each other.
Smile first. See the response.
Art brings healing. When I heal, I can then help in the healing process of another.
When my well is replenished, I can help another drink of the well.
Art has been my resource to connect.. to myself, to others. It is my way of bringing about change, bringing beauty into the world and exploring a healthy way of self-expression.
I would like to share this with you.
Today, do one thing differently.
