About

This blog was created with the goal to share personal life inspirations that have pushed me to seek its outward expression in writing, painting, photography, street dance and other mediums. For many years, I have tried to neglect this inner call to place one’s heart and soul into the Arts such as painting and writing. As a child, I really enjoyed the Arts but as I grew up I thought I had more ‘important’ things to do such as trying to find a career path in order to make a living. I say I have fallen prey to the current capitalist society’s messages to de-value Art and place artists into the category of poverty. It might be true that many artists nowadays find themselves to be materially poor yet not many people know how spiritually enriching Art can be!

Buddhist philosophies have taught me to delve away from the temptations of material wealth, power and fame and aim to fully liberate oneself. Of course, these temptations still linger around and remain around me telling me to pursue them. I am still very embedded in the pleasures of worldly living yet I hope one day I can free myself from it.

Creating this blog is a step in the unknown, I have shifted my life towards the Arts and towards Buddhist goals of liberation. It is a first step so there is much hard work to do and challenges ahead. I ask all the readers to be compassionate on my current limited skills and provide constructive criticism on my works so I can be improving day by day.

  1. Amazing! I began my blog with much the same reasoning. I was a teacher for 36 years…dabbled in drawing and oil painting in my free time, but never formally trained. I thought I would be poor and living on the streets IF I pursued becoming an artist. NOW….I am allowing my inner creativity to surface and express itself. It is exhilarating and makes me feel like a new person! Sometimes I am afraid of putting my words out there…but the WordPress community is such a good place to BE! All the best to you! And thank you for visiting and following my blog! I will honor you with the same. Oh yes, I also began to study Buddhist teachings this past year…amazing how we are so much alike!

    1. It is wonderful to meet you. I felt a connection to your writings and in a sense we do share many similar ideas. It would be great to learn from you and your life experiences. Yes, Buddhism helps to fill a gap within me and navigates me through the world. I also try to learn from the messages from other religions such as Christianity and Hinduism. Still a beginner though and probably just touched the surface of it.

      I really enjoy teaching too and considering maybe in the future teach too (taught ESL/ELL and Economics a lil bit). What subjects do you teach?
