The Wolf - Chun Lo (ArtStation)
p e a c e
It was a Crossing
Like the sun rise to the Night skies
When the clouds crossed the moon
Music playing the highest notes
bending the silver spoon
Magic still existed
As the river glistened
And the soul listened
To the heartbeat of her tune
The beggars became homeless
Greed the new seed
The ego formed
And we conformed
Lost in time
Not reading the signs
And she shut her eyes
Couldn’t take the lies
For a new bloom
Let out your strength from within, from within
Then you will begin to appreciate the hope
In this graceful world
When you’re in a state of grace
You’re in the big picture
You’re in creation
You see you’re a part of it
A part of the masterpiece
A part of the master plan￼￼￼￼￼￼
Now breathe…this too shall pass
You Will Find Your Way Home.
—there lives a feeling of wanting to be lovable, of wanting to be the kind of person that others like to be with.
Its all about finding comfort - within your mind, your soul, your body. If you’ve attuned yourself to these three, then even the most catastrophic conflicts will not be able to shake you. Your roots are firmly planted within yourself and hence anything external will not be able to affect you. May all your endeavours thus be directed to this end - in you finding comfort within yourself - the three monumental giants: the mind, the body, the soul…
You must travel it by yourself.
It is not far. It is within reach.
Perhaps you have been on it since you were born, and did not know.
Perhaps it is everywhere - on water and land.
Sadness and joy are the two strongest emotions we experience. They can make up for one another; joy can make sadness disappear, but so can sadness take over for joy. Sadness may create depression, joy euphoria. But how come when we create we create from a place of sadness rather than joy?
The answer is fairly simple. At times we create to share, to show, to enlighten. To let other people take part in our happiest moments and memories. But more often than not we create to handle, to cope, to overcome. Why, now, would we ever want to overcome a euphoric feeling such as joy?
Sadness, on the other hand, we cannot cope with. Sadness, we have to overcome. And that is why, in so many cases, we create from sadness. Because we feel the need to turn our sadness into something meaningful. Joy, we don’t need to turn into anything because it already is the most meaningful and powerful emotion.
Creating from sadness does not mean we do not appreciate joy. It only means that sadness we need to work on and to work with in order to overcome it. So, creating from sadness is never wrong or harmful und unjustified, for it is the only way we may overcome whatever it is that is making us feel this way. It is the only way we may get better.
