Для меня, как артиста, во мне ещё много неясного, нераскрытого, невысказанного. Думаю, самое печальное — остановиться в поисках себя, а значит и в своём профессиональном развитии. Я встречал немало умных людей с большим жизненным опытом, которые всё испытали и всё знают. В общении с ними я часто убеждаюсь в правоте их мыслей и выводов. В то же время, многие из них скептически относятся в своей профессии, утратили веру в своё дело и интерес к своему ремеслу. Складывается ощущение, что эти люди пришли уже давно, во всём утвердились и заскучали. Нет увлечённости, желания и огня в глазах. Профессиональное выгорание перерастает в тотальное оскудение творческой составляющей личности, и дальше это угасание переходит на все сферы жизни. Непрерывного и увлекательного процесса желаю вам! Ищите себя, своё дело, не жалейте времени, сил и средств на то, что вас по-настоящему увлекает. Не останавливайтесь. Движение — Жизнь! #artemovcharenko#ballet#life#thoughts#philosophy#art#rudolfnureyev#bolshoitheater
A little over a month ago Inward was released on Amazon. It has been such a transformative time for me personally, seeing something that I have worked on for so long come to life and start spreading and supporting people in their growth. Something that is intimately connected with my own growth, something that would not exist had I not taken my own healing seriously. I did not know that my life would lead into making something that can be physically held, adding it to the ocean of humanity, letting it go, allowing it to take its own course and move into the hands and minds of people who wish to spend time with it. It is affirming to hear how Inward is serving people well - my goal and hope was always to create something that would help people see that healing ourselves is possible and that personal transformation is an essential part of global transformation.
With or without Inward, it gives me hope to see so many people going deep within themselves, taking hold of their malleability and start observing and releasing with the purpose of bringing to life new versions of themselves that are wiser, happier, clearer and more equanimous. Many are realizing that the missing peace in the world is the same peace we lack in our minds and hearts - this is a medicine the world needs. Whenever people move together, the world changes.
Sending love to all beings. May we all continue cultivating our personal freedom and may that freedom be added to the collective freedom of humanity. May we all be happy and free. May we all heal ourselves and the world.
Inward is available for $15.33 on Amazon, it is also available through Amazon Europe, Amazon Canada and through the link in my profile. 🙏🏽💙🌎 #yungpueblo
i am dead tired from writing this confession. and life in general tbh. but here it is, inspired by Clara from @thebookwormofnotredame . thank you for being one of my biggest inspirations to try and overcome my anxiety, and for guiding me on how to find myself through your blog posts Clara 💕💕
— i procrastinate. a lot. constantly, i find myself sitting, frozen, because my thoughts consume my entire brain. — i have never been to a therapist, though i need one. talking has become difficult for me (which is why i’m 99% sure that i failed my oral final for spanish) and it almost always makes me tear up or cry after a conversation. it’s not that i don’t like talking to people, i just can’t take a conversation. which leads to bad and suicidal thoughts.
— i speed read. most books i read, i don’t remember in a month, unless it’s a really good book or it’s a required reading. therefore, i tend to discuss books here and then forget about them completely. it’s saddening, but i’m extremely impatient.
— my biggest fear is not living to anyone’s expectations. ever since i was little, people have admired and had high expectations for me, so it’s nerve racking when someone says “you’ll do great” or “good luck”. it’s hard, when my mind track is set to anxious and negative, to take those things in a positive way.
i hope in the future, i’ll be able to open up about more personal things.

At first he thought: he'd be safe if he'd chain himself to somewhere, somewhere he'd belong and return back to. Soon enough he found out that chains he put on himself were not connected to anywhere other than his own body. Chains started growing around him, the further he wanted to be safe the further he chained himself; without recognizing, the chains became what he is. From there on with his chains he grew into where he should be, into the void, into the abyss.
A composition with reference to Nietzsche's argument:
"If you gaze long into an Abyss, the Abyss will gaze back into you"
“A mental mandala is when you acquire knowledge and then teach it to someone else. The other person takes that knowledge, reflects on it, and it becomes a living thing inside of them. They evaluate what they’ve learned, and different concepts start linking together in their head. The knowledge is based on self-reflection. It suddenly connects and you say, “Wow! That makes so much sense.” That is a mental mandala.
Every single thing you learn is incomplete. The reason why it’s incomplete is because I’m taking something that’s huge, that’s extremely complex, and trying to simplify it in a minimal amount of time. It should take a year to thoroughly discuss this but it’s being condensed into a moment.
In that moment as you begin to understand, it begins to unfold in your mind. It’s like filling a dried sponge with water and watching it expand. That’s what I’m doing. Everything I teach is like a mandala. It grows and unfolds inside of you over time. Then you grasp something and say, “Now I understand what you’re talking about.” Or you look at something and think, “Now that makes more sense. Now I understand.” You’re finally connecting everything you’re learning and it makes more sense. This creates one mandala after another and all of a sudden, there are more mandalas inside of you without me ever saying anything.” -
Eric Pepin, Igniting the Sixth Sense
Success doesn’t happen by accident. You can’t build a great business, achieve a massive goal or rise to the top of your profession only with luck. It takes a ridiculous amount of work and consistently showing up every single day for many years. And sometimes you need to be reminded why you started in the first place and that everything is going to be worth it in the end. Get your hustle on!
It’s hard when you’re sad or upset or dealing with stress to remember to take care of yourself. Little things make a big diff about how you feel... about yourself. And that’s the most important opinion of all 💜❤️💙

Je fais très rarement ça, mais j'ai accepté de refaire une toile pour un bon client de la galerie qui a plusieurs de mes toiles à Pointe-Claire. Une réinterprétation de ma "Surfeuse sereine", sur toile (la première était sur soie). Je me suis moi-même surprise à avoir du fun à faire cet exercice! Même que je sens que je ne suis pas allée au bout, je pense que je pourrais la refaire une troisième fois. Comme quoi il ne faut jamais dire jamais.
Et puis, laquelle est votre préférée?
En tous cas, peindre une vague en regardant les courbes de neige était très inspirant.
