Today The 52 card set for The Untethered soul came. So I shuffled and picked three to think on. (1) “How do you free yourself? In the deeper sense, you free yourself by finding yourself.” Hmmmmmm…… I am working on this. I think we find parts of ourselves, the total self? I observe that we constantly evolve so that we are never “done”. Be just need to be ok with that and watch for the different paths that teach us things that evolve us.
(2) “That which is holding you down can become a powerful force that raises you up. You just have to be willing to take the ascent.” Ahhhhh____finding what it is that is holding me down at this time_____. And how to turn it around into my power. I do understand and need to keep it in mind. Thoughts that come up can be changed, knowing and remembering the things I have changed into better experiences helps. In that, there is a certainty.
(3) “You must go through the darkest night in order to get to the infinite light. What we call darkness is really the blockage of light.” HMMMMMmmmmm. I love how when you change a sentence around, how you can find new meanings. Finding hope.
I live in Southern Maine. I am the owner of Anisette Studios. My website is https://www.anisettestudios.com/ Here you can view and purchase Shibui, sign up for my newsletters, blog, and read articles about Shibui Found Image Art. Patrons get great deals several times a year and special items at times. My site makes it easy to contact me. My primary art form is Shibui Found Image Art. Shibui begins with action art and stems from the imagination. It is like seeing something in the clouds or solving a puzzle. Its creative process has its own rules and requires what I call reverse engineering due to a lack of an understructure and purely out of the imagination. In addition to those who patron me, my target groups are those who use art therapy. I will soon be teaching live. Contact me if you would like to learn live. I use Zoom. I request that although my art, other images, and what I write is now published by me here on WordPress; I do ask you do not to use my artwork, poetry, or the information about Shibui Found Image Art without my permission. I am quite available to make such requests. I wish to share the following: The existentialist philosopher Simone de Beauvoir wrote a book called The Ethics of Ambiguity. In it, she lays out a guiding ethic in response to the philosophy of existentialism. It might be somewhat familiar to you already. She writes, “To will oneself free is also to will others free. This will is not an abstract formula. It points out to each person concrete action to be achieved.”
Best wishes to all! Have good times and keep safe! Pejj
I love this one!
