"THE ONLY JOURNEY IS THE ONE WITHIN."- RAINER MARIA RILKE
The period when a light of consciousness reaches acknowledgment towards self-awareness is a pivotal juncture to overcome the boundaries the subconscious mindset conditions your journey to perceive. By recognizing the crucial elements that fabricate your entity, the progressional growth correlated to your endeavor becomes more prominent. The more you understand the trajectory facing your path, the more efficient your decision process towards trials of adversity adheres to your overall personal interest. Grasping the core structure that is inherently you and accessing the skillsets to facilitate the craft that'll become your legacy provokes a means of exploring within the introspective self. A new chapter in your life will begin.
I recall the period where my inquiry towards apprehending self-value took a turn within. From the best of my knowledge, I believed I understood the requisite actions to fulfill my creative undertaking. Focus, time, patience, eagerness to learn, risk-taking, these attributes among many dignified my motivation. I established progress throughout my ventures into unknown landscapes, and a lot of my creative characteristics in the present moment benefit from the drive embedded in my pursuit. It wasn't until later in my journey I began to question the value of the structure I built to support my endeavor. What do I truly want to create that'll define who I am? With time coursing through my withering body, what do I sincerely wish to accomplish so I can be proud of what I leave behind when I'm gone? What type of medium do I want to use to convey the art I envision in my mind? What's the next step? As my focal point drew deeper into these queries, I began searching for external inspiration that would resonate with the reflective energy I held. The more I gained knowledge of the mental landscape, the more I devoted time to searching within my conscious self to cultivate the individual I earn to become.
Take the initiative in dedicating time for yourself. In our societal infrastructure, we defer the concept of mindfulness and self-maintenance as careless, being inefficient with our time. Being careless and inefficient is when you grant negative thoughts stated above as rational. Making the incentive of taking care of yourself is crucial to the continuation of your journey through our plane of existence. It's immensely vital for the creative endeavor you want to pursue. Establish the daily practices that'll enforce positive returns for yourself. The accessibility of gaining insight into these methods is revolutionary with the tools we have at our disposal. The remaining course of action lies with you.

"THE PURPOSE OF ART IS WASHING THE DUST OF DAILY LIFE OFF OUR SOULS."-PABLO PICASSO
The quest of igniting the light of the creative being requires an energy governed from within ourselves. The architecture of our society obligates our course of life to follow protocols beyond the perception of what some might interpret as accurate. We embody the neurological structure to harness thought and converge conscious matter into action. Given the opportunity to enact on attaining the knowledge and skillsets required to instigate momentum on your vision, the possibilities of reaching your goals are prosperous. Adversity will be the rival in the pursuit of fulfillment. In our space of existence, going against the establishment that's monetized various outlets of expression and artistic endeavors will no doubt institute potential challenges. With that in mind, the horizon we face will become the journey of a lifetime.
The trials I've gone to sustain my vision possess a degree of experience I wouldn't trade for anything. I've subjected myself to decisions that left me in less than ideal conditions. With that premonition underlining my subconscious mindset, I extinguish any signs of regret because I recognize the emotions associated with the altercations within myself doesn't represent who I am. The energy coursing through my headspace is a subsystem reaction based on the conditioning to the light of consciousness I continue to grow. The gift of existence is valued beyond any measurable unit known to the universe. Gravitating my perception to notions like this is what grounds my focus away from my reactive subconscious self. The more I implement practices of mindfulness and concentration towards what brings value to my life, the more I become in tune with the energies I require to progress my journey.
I can't speak for every entity to stand against the pressures that come with chasing what's dear to them. The risks affiliated with such immense accords can submit action to a standstill. The resources required alone to fulfill such adventures demand so much out of yourself and to the landscape that surrounds you. With the unsettling reality settled in our perception, is the act of letting your dreams fall from existence worth the sacrifice? Ask yourself the questions; I've been given the light of consciousness, what value can I provide to the plane of life we all share? My time on this earth will perish before I'm ready to leave, what must I do to justify my legacy to continue when I'm gone? The world is waiting for the beauty that's within us to be discovered, what will be my next move?

"LIFE IS THE ART OF DRAWING WITHOUT AN ERASER."- JOHN W. GARDNER
The creative entities that laid the landscape we explore fabricated their vision from the bedrock of their predecessors.
The foundation establishes the guideline for the future light of consciousnesses to pursue. The beautiful course that the artistic mindset holds is the ability to harness the energy to continue the progress that's left behind. As time takes its course through our plane of existence, the development of the artifacts generations before constructed evolve into a manifestation within our conscious headspace. In the various perceptions, we perceive what correlates to our attention, and continue the journey another has left for us to discover.
The pathway towards my creative-self didn't present itself until later in my adolescent life. I didn't comprehend the magnitude of the decision I was making as I continued to indulge in the concept of becoming an entity that I later realized stood further from my grasp than I initially thought. My trials of attaining an understanding of what I needed to accomplish became apparent at the beginning of my adulthood. The reality of establishing the foundation of self-sustainment within the structure of society placed the tone of the level of dedication, mindfulness, and experience I needed to fulfill the journey laying within me. The challenges I encountered molded the subconscious infrastructure that's created the conduits to where I'm writing these words which your reading right now.
The teachers that have walked the path before us holds a plentiful bounty of knowledge for the successors to learn. As creative beings, we must take advantage of the beauty that surrounds our landscapes, and within ourselves. The energy we encompass deserves to see the plane of existence we all share. The gift that lays within your grasp is waiting for your heart and mind to coincide and become one. The commitment is immense, the struggles and instances of adversities are authentic. Mistakes will occur, so will opportunities to grow. The sheer importance of realizing your calling rest of the finite resource we call time. There's no way to make more of it, and it passes through our light of consciousness as quickly as the breath that escapes from our lungs. Learn from the generations that lived before us, and utilize the knowledge you gain in creating the journey you want to pursue.

The path that lies before you will create the landscape that'll facilitate the purpose that your searching. The skillsets that you'll require will become apparent as you progress through your journey in the unknown. The knowledge that you'll gain will come from the words of others, the experience you'll encounter, and the adversities that'll challenge your light of consciousness. When you embark on fulfilling an objective, time, mindfulness, curiosity, courage, determination, and commitment become a portion of the required assets you'll need to grow the infrastructure that's you.
My journey has consisted of various trials of challenges correlated with insufficiently prepared actions based on not fully understanding the context of my situation. The time I've invested in my creative craft will always be in a disposition with the infinite possibilities of mishaps waiting for me to discover. That will not change. What has progressed throughout my journey is how I react and rectify the challenges facing me. In the realm of conflict against your interest, providing a sufficient follow-through procedure becomes crucial to the momentum of your vision. When you make an optimal decision to counteract the symptom at hand, you systematically program your subconscious mindset to act in your favor proficiently. As your subliminal mental system conditions itself, the rest of your conscious state will become attuned to the challenges that are waiting for you.
All of this progression takes time to implement. Varying on what you want to achieve in your journey, more likely than not, a lot of your finite resources of time on this plane of existence will contribute to attaining the necessary assets to facilitate to your journey. There will be times where giving up and reconsidering your options will come in your conscious view, and that's understandable. Exploring a landscape that's unknown to our peripheral at first seems daunting and threatening to our state of being. In moments like this what I can share with you is take the time to step back from the emotions embedded within the present period, and see the situation for what it is. Analyze the position the scenario places you, look at what you can conjure from the skillsets you've developed throughout your journey so far, and start for that point of creating a resolution. Again there are mistakes bound to happen, but within errors lies lessons we can utilize for future endeavors. Have patience, build the infrastructure to facilitate the skillsets you'll attain throughout your journey, and become the entity that you want to live.

"FROM A SMALL SEED, A MIGHTY TRUNK MAY GROW. "-AESCHYLUS
It's remarkable how far a vision can progress in the course of time. The exponential growth that occurs when a subconscious thought comes to life within our plane of existence. As the light of consciousness harbors the structural assets to create its purpose, the story that unfolds becomes one of many legacies that'll exist for as long as we continue to explore towards the unknown horizons. What seems insignificant at first glance to some can become the life-long journey for someone else.
I can recall a time where I needed to create an interpretation of the noises that were circulating in my mind. I felt a need to express internal signals and translate them into the world. I didn't have the necessary skillsets to manipulate matter from what I envisioned, but I knew if I invested time and focus on my craft, there was the possibility of attaining momentum towards my intentions. That became a slow and steady reality as time and progression created the knowledge and framework for my newly acquired skillsets. As increased growth filled my perception of what I could accomplish, my creative entity developed a receptive intuition to other potential ventures I could take on. My curiosity of pushing the thresholds of my capabilities captivated my senses where I couldn't ignore it anymore. The junctures I've surpassed from that initial thought from where I started has created me to the individual I am today.
Let your imagination become the catalyst to create the vision that'll inspire you to conceive the path you want to pursue. When it comes to the finite amount of time to accomplish opportunities within our plane of existence, there's very little room for resistance to make an impact on your overall state of consciousness. Enable the energy within you to instigate the charge required to accelerate momentum on your journey. Mistakes will be made within the judgment calls you result on, but let it become a lesson, an opportunity for your intentions to recognize the repercussion of your decision and allow it to become a lesson for future endeavors to come. Your ambitions are waiting to be discovered, acknowledge it's calling and plant the seed now so you can watch it flourish to an entity that you can be proud of.

"ALWAYS DO YOUR BEST. WHAT YOU PLANT NOW, YOU WILL HARVEST LATER. "-OG MANDINO
With all the work I produce in relations to my creative self, one of my intuitive practices I place on my approval process to my artistic profile is how well will the piece of content age throughout our existential presence on our plane of life. I dedicate an immense resource of internal energy to my craft, and I take great pride in the final product. The course of where my content goes after departing from my thoughts all varies on how it gets received through the societal landscape that it circulates. I intuitively fabricate the narrative of my work, but I do take into consideration the emotional reaction I get from the populous. Regardless, if we take a moment and focus our perception towards the act of creating art, the concept of aging alongside an entity that rose from the mental landscape of the light of consciousness becomes a more precious experience to hold.
The escape I produce from my imagination serves as a method of inspiration I require to continue my pursuit of growing my creative self. The symbiosis between my mind and the external stimulus I connect to demands a sense of unison propelled by intramural energy and complete focus. When all the sections within myself align, that's where I feel at my most optimal state. The degree of intensity incorporated throughout my practices showcases a portion of the reason why I place so much value on the creations I do. A substantial deal of myself is in my work. I want the entity to age with as much respect and elegance as I can produce. The byproduct of my practice enforces the emphasis on my skillsets; Am I trying hard enough? Can I do better? What ideas can afford to change, and what ideas can be left behind? All these thought processes give a glimpse of what goes on within my neurological landscape.
Cherish the experience of creating the progressional growth towards your goals. There will be instances of adversity that can result in incremental changes that can serve as vital assets of momentary deterrents. The course of the light of consciousness requires these periods to understand the true nature of the landscape you want to explore. These moments will reflect your creative expressions, and that will create an entity that can potentially resonate alongside many generations who will utilize your perception as a means of conduit for their journey towards the horizon they want to reach.

"IT IS NOT HOW MUCH WE HAVE, BUT HOW MUCH WE ENJOY, THAT MAKES HAPPINESS."- CHARLES SPURGEON
Simplicity has proven value throughout my life as a means to carry my light of consciousness in the most optimal manner possible. The complexity of the societal landscape that I partake establishes adversity that challenges my present conditioning on how I react to the circumstances facing me. The moment I showcase a sense of confident wielding in my actions is when I materialize the concept into knowledge. When the experience settles into my neurological infrastructure that's when I can analyze and break down all the components from the newfound assets I've attained. The progression of mindfulness continues; simplicity correlated with clarity once again becomes the perception of my journey towards the horizon.
The notion of merging the concept of simplicity in my adolescent mindset never structured a presence as a view towards the ever-evolving landscape we reside. The perception of implementing a sense of stability within the confines of modesty questioned my approach to pursuing the goals I wanted to reach. I intended to gain momentum quickly and progress as much as possible to justify the need to create art. My method of attaining the required knowledge to facilitate my growing thirst for expressing myself fell within the criteria of understanding enough of the practice to enable the motion to engage creation. Where the lack of embracing the entire practice fell through became evident when challenges arose. The confusion, the frustration, the anger that manifested within my mental state grew more of a distraction and derailment towards my progressional growth. Where simplicity regulates this type of situation becomes apparent with the critical content I ignored when I initially took the responsibility to open my mind and enable full comprehension of the skillsets I wanted to build in the first place. My complete understanding of the integral pieces that construct the skillset could prevent wasted energy on moments of adversity which creates a mindset that's simple in operation and effective in action.
My continual search of attaining the knowledge I desire to fulfill myself acknowledges the dedication required to embrace all the content that's associated with the skillset I want to learn. Where I enforce the act of simplicity is after I've settled down and understood what I've absorbed. From that moment on, I make the conscious effort to contextualize all that there is to know of the concept and place it in a simplistic format that I can utilize at any given time. This practice requires a great deal of energy at first but becomes natural to the light of consciousness as it continues its journey through the existential landscape we all call home.
12/06/17: BEHIND THE CAMERA: ENJOYING THE SIMPLE THINGS THAT MATTER.
LOCATION: CAMPBELL RIVER. VANCOUVER ISLAND, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA.
Do you find it almost astonishingly easy to get lost in the hustle of everyday life? The immense workload that gets placed in front of you becomes your focal point for most of your day. By the time the dust settles, you get the chance to breathe only to find yourself inches away from your bed already tensioning to the idea you'll have to go through this process again. For most of us, that's a part of life. Within circumstances like this, remembering the simple but joyous pleasures in life become vital to retaining a form of balance in someone's day to day life. I get carried away with my thoughts from time to time, but with moments like watching my furry friend light up as we go on an adventure to immerse ourselves in nature, I resonate with those basic pleasures that bring value in my life.

The entity that is the light of consciousness embodies all the necessary assets to conceive the act of fulfillment to forge the path of its journey. The neurological framework to support our endeavors, the internal energy to propel towards our objectives, and the phycological algorithms that cascades our decisions to align subconscious thought into physical action all lies within ourselves. We might not recognize these traits within our perception of ourselves, and with that, this is where the journey of searching within the introspective begins.
Time has coursed through my body and eroded aspects of my mindset that grew from a period of existence falling short of insight. I focused on the knowledge I gained from the outlets I could interact with at the present perspective. My conditioning based on my understanding of the landscape that surrounded me ultimately played a role in the judgment utilized throughout my journey. As I covered ground in attaining the skillsets required to fulfill my needs, there were instances where change became the notion I needed to negotiate with myself. The challenge of recalibrating my acceptance to change when I fixated my attention on set ways of following specific actions required the decision to fall on me. External sources can provide insight and potential inspiration to lower light on the possibility of change. In the end, it was up to me to justify the logic and make it a part of my practice. It's up to ourselves to instigate the final word.
As conscious beings co-existing with other walks of life, we must recognize the lessons that surround us. We must acknowledge the challenges that others have experienced and discern the elements that best work in our current state of consciousness. The decision of change ultimately pertains to what you believe needs to happen in the trajectory of your journey. External influences can bombard your peripheral and manifest your mental being; the results rests in your hands. Accept that the answers to your queries end with your best attempt at interpreting what will be your next step throughout your journey. Mistakes are unfortunately within the perception of reality, but if we mitigate the repercussions of our mistakes, we create a better recovery rate in retaining the momentum that'll propel our sights towards what will work. Be patient, be persistent, and be prepared to make the change that'll lead you to the light you want to reach.

"IT DOES NOT MATTER HOW SLOWLY YOU GO AS LONG AS YOU DO NOT STOP."-CONFUCIUS
In the journey of the light of consciousness, the landscape that lays facing us goes far and wide. The distance between your present stance and the beacon of accomplishment and self-fulfillment can be a lifetime away to reach. Realizations of this perception are difficult to conceptualize when we acknowledge the concept of the finite resource of time slowly dissipates from our hands. Instinctively we react in the manner of immediate action to acquire rapid results. The reality is we need to understand it takes extensive periods of time to cultivate and exercise the necessary tools required to attain the objectives we want to reach.
My journey of pursuing my creative-self began with the notion of being able to produce the thoughts that were coursing through my mindset into an entity I could interact in my plane of existence. The perception of fabricating a piece of myself in an artistic formation was immensely inspiring. My knowledge of utilizing the tools needed to create my interpretation of art was minimal; I had little experience with coordinating my mind to work in unison with my body to produce the tones I wanted to have control over. The only choice I had was to place a considerable amount of my focus and discipline of my personal time to orchestrate all the required functions to convey energy into matter. The effort put into my practice became the stepping stone towards the first step in my journey. As time moved on, so did my intention of attempting to gain results in a less than optimal manner. I eventually realized that I needed the countless hours of concentrating on my craft to recognize the nature of my trajectory throughout my journey. With this concept developed in my mindset, the progression of self-fulfillment could continue to grow, bringing me closer to the horizon I've been searching for.
Recognize that time well devoted to your craft is time well invested in you. Don't overcome your mindset to perceive that time is against you. The progression will take it's course accordingly. We all have various degrees of pace in regards to learning and methods of retaining the knowledge which will provide the tools to further our personal growth. Work within your confines of your mental landscape, and don't overstep the boundaries of its threshold. Take your time, enjoy the experience of mastering knowledge, and use it to your advantage as you continue your journey. Yes, time is of the essence, but if it's well invested, then that's all we can ask for.

"CHANGE IS THE END RESULT OF ALL TRUE LEARNING."- LEO BUSCAGLIA
The discourse of our narrative when we focus on our purpose integrates an objective that on face value appears simple to execute. In reality, the complexity required to facilitate the infrastructure that is our life's intent goes far beyond the lines of basic perception. The outlines we follow at any given moment changes with little to no warning. The trajectory one light of consciousness creates predominately cannot correlate a pathway for others to follow. As living entities that harbor the cognitive power to enact thought into action, the investment we pour in ourselves instigates moments of adversities to present themselves. How we react towards the challenging periods ultimately opens new getaways to alternative trails of thoughts for personal growth to continue its course.
The moments I've faced adversity that established an alternative course became memorable instances I retain dearly in my mind. The junctures devised my mindset to consider contrasting ideas that I wouldn't have given the light of day in another period throughout my life. We get set in our ways in approaching and enacting on the process facing our perspective. Up to a point where we can't recognize if we're producing optimal results based on the amount of effort we place our attention to the task at hand. This concept becomes dangerous when you retain the consideration of the finite resource of your time on this plane of existence joined with the value you need to create to attain the purpose your seeking. The realization eventually came to fruition when I contextualized this very concept, and from then on my thought process has reconditioned to accept change for potential good in my journey.
Make the conscious effort to recognize that change doesn't always inhibit negative results in the progression of your journey towards attaining your goals. The situation of change is the possibility of accepting an alternative perspective in respect to the perception you've fixated yourself so far. Diversity creates the horizon beyond the landscape you've traveled through and provides a beacon of light for where your path can take you. Open your heart and mind to the possibilities that can aspire your pathway to become enriched with prosperity that might not have seemed evident before. The more you do so, the more you gain momentum in reaching the wishes you once desired.
