Feeling

oriela oil o canvas

We are human beings with feelings , we are not machines and one of the most sensible body part is the lips, so that is why I decided to do my new painting series on lips

Oil on canvas 11 x14 inches

Oil painting

Ok, just discovered the amazing paint medium which is oil painting …. why new and why just now ?

I’ve been painting in acrylics all along because I was literally scared of oil paints for no reason because they stain and of the many different solvents that you can use etc .

So since I’m a kid born in the 80’s I recurred to the plastic medium acrylic and actually diluted it as an oil paint and made it look like one but with the complexities of the difficulty in blending and the amount of product wasted since it dries so fast .

Oil paint blends so well you can have more realistic outcome , you can fix as you go and have so many layers although a practice in patience since you have to wait for a layer to dry to go to the next one and so on but the effects are worth it .

Want to Change the world ?

Ok… so for all idealists such as myself who want to change the world see things better than they are … What dawns to me is that we can’t control other people and we can’t control what decisions our president makes etc.

But what we can control is OURSELVES , so as Michael Jackson’s song  says ( and many other wise sayings)  ” take a look at yourself and make a change…”   the first step in changing the current situation that you are in is changing yourself.. If you want love, be loving , if you want  people to be social with you , YOU be social start the conversations.

It is easy to complain about your partner, friends etc but what only you can do is see what YOU can do to make things better and DO IT then leave the rest to others.  The best way to lead is through example

Its a great responsibility and freedom to know that YOU create your world, your experiences its only through your lenses that you experience  perceived reality .

Different yoga classes which is best?

Mudra Boston Art Museum

Now a days there are so many different type of yoga classes that one can get easily confused as to which one is the best etc.

For me it comes down to which one connects with you better, which one is more YOU and  you feel you need it for your personal  development.

Ashtanga, power,  yin, jivamutki, kundalini…  I wont dwelve into which is which but I encourage if possible to give them a try, find a teacher which inspires you.

Personally I am a trained Kundalini yoga intstructor because everytime I went to that class my day and life transformed into the better, loved that the teacher spoke during the excercises so I felt that I was at a lecture and I could say it changed me .

Now a days since I moved to Puerto Rico I dont have Golden Bridge( the Kundalini center I used to attend in Los Angeles ) so I am starting to go to Ashtanga yoga classes which are much more physical, the teacher does not give you a lecture just guides you through the poses and with  your inhale exhale you go into a continuous moving meditation .

It all depend on where you are at in your spiritual  journey what you want?

can’t afford it

What I can’t afford is a negative thought …

Everything starts from the mind so the moment you ” will fast drown you in a negative whirlwind .

The mind is powerful remember it all starts with an idea of what our world is , who we are and we make actions that are self fulfilling prophecies .

So really I can’t stress enough to take care of your thoughts that is why mindfulness and meditation are so important .

Look at the world around you it is the product of your thoughts

The eternal quest for happines

Ok, first post.

What comes to my mind is the quest for happiness and what  are we searching for , what are we working towards. Today I saw an interview  of  Santos  a Yale teacher who gives the most popular class in the history of Yale and it is  about  happiness.

Which it came down to life´s simple pleasures as cliche as it may sound… but yes . After we have acquired food, shelter etc much more money will not give us any more happiness but what will are things like gratitude, excercise, sleep, meditation , being with friends etc .

So what are we waiting for … Sleep well, meditate for at least 10 minutes , be grateful that we have roof, water , food etc and go walk in nature!

Here I will  post a link to my favorite video that will instantly put a smile on your face and help see life in different ways. Even if you have seen it , watch it again! It always has an effect on me
