On Desire

Distrust anyone who tries to convince you that you should give up all desires in order to be happy. Desire is the driving force of the evolution and innovation. It enriches your mind, expands it, motivates you to seek and explore unchartered territories. Honoring the desire to create means you care. It opens your heart to possibility and allows you to see told landscapes with new eyes.

Everything that has been created, made or invented, has come into existence because of somebody's imagination and desire to turn it into reality. Desire signals the expansion of your capacity to mentally conceive a possible future. There are no rules or limits for those who can see their new reality and reverse engineer it back into existence.

“We are told that talent creates its own opportunities. But it sometimes seems that intense desire creates not only its own opportunities but its own talents.” ― Eric Hoffer

Everything you desire is already hidden in your consciousness as a potential projection of who you are. If it was not yet fully formed in a vision, you would not be able to sense it or access it. It is important to know and believe that you are never inspired towards something that does not have the potential of giving you everything that you want.

Honor your desire by all means. In order to be selfless you need to be sufficiently self-centered. Your desire is your greatest hope for reconnection to a higher creative intelligence. If you have a talent, there is a demand for it. Otherwise, you would not have it in the first place. If you're passionate about it, you definitely need to follow this resonance because it will lead you forward. The higher creative intelligence talks to you through your desire. Listen, be present.

Life becomes your personal lab for miracles when your desire and your belief are in the same place, carrying the same energy of faith and confidence. There is no greater way to pray or ask for something than evoking the feeling that you already are in a possession of it. That it is already yours. You claim it boldly through desire, that is by seeing it, feeling it and becoming one with it.

Life - Transforming Questions

If the quality of our life depends on the decisions we make. And the quality of our decisions is largely determined by the quality of the questions we ask, what are the questions that could lead us to the greatest breakthrough in life? Here is a (never complete) collection of questions I believe can assist you in moving forward and transforming your life. You don't have to try and answer all of them. Instead, feel free to browse through the list and contemplate the questions that resonate with you at this moment. The questions might be used also as journal prompters and in practising meditation. What do you stand for? What person do you wish to become? If thoughts shape reality, what would you like to think about that would help you move forward? If you'd have to do the impossible with nothing, where would you start? Who are you without the doing? Who are you when you just are? If you could re-imagine and transform their life just by visualizing and thinking, wha

Why Bother Making Art?

Art is the highest form of hope and the boldest form of self-expression. Creativity - the greatest rebellion in existence. It takes courage to create and share our work.  Both art and creativity are based on transgression and rooted in possibility. Their right of existence lies in providing an opportunity for a space to shape itself around a concept.  Artistic work is both a matter of survival and a chance to learn how to live, achieving inner stability and restoring the connection with the core of our being. We go through a fragile process of filtering perceptions, learning, un-learning and re-learning how to listen, look and see before giving birth to new realities. We allow ourselves to become who we are. "Art-making is not about telling the truth but making the truth felt."-  Christian Boltanski Yet both vulnerability and authenticity require practice. Exposing the core of our being to a world of friends and strangers to love, criticize or ignore is never simple

Creativity, Uncertainty and Possibility

When you're new to something, Rick Rubin enlightened us, you bring an ignorance that can be highly innovative. The usefulness of experts is indisputable but when you need a breakthrough freshness of insight is a priority. Indeed, so much of what we know somehow stands in the way of developing new perspectives. In a sense, we're at all times hostages to our mental models. And only by becoming familiar with them and aware of them can we learn how to see things from a new angle.  Sometimes we may need to impose constraints on our projects in order to channel our creative energy. At other times, we may be asked to do exactly the opposite: drop the limitations, un-scope and acknowledge the importance of exploring something totally new, even if we don't know where this would lead us to. Unchartered territories obviously don't come with maps. They do, however, come with the promise of allowing us to be the first to map them while navigating them based on our inner compass.  Ne
