Prosperity

“True prosperity is not making money or putting out goods or developing prosperity. It is determining what our souls require in order to cause them to unfold more of God (Divine);”

Myrtle Fillmore, Healing Letters, Unity Books

Considered in the broadest sense, prosperity is ‘spiritual wellbeing’. This involves the whole experience of healing life, satisfying love, abiding peace and harmony, as well as a sufficiency (of every good thing).

Paul Hasselbeck, Spiritual Economics

Therefore, prosperity is a state of consciousness.

WEALTH DYNAMICS

Well, deep down we all want to get rich so we can do the things that are meaningful to us. Very often though we do not realise that we do not need to do something to pay the bills or win the lottery to free up time for the things that we love doing.

According to Roger Hamilton (Wealth Dynamics & GeniusU), we all have an innate and natural way to do things that not only pleases us but when we are in the ‘flow’, it generate wealth for us, too.

In this early video Roger explains what the 9 types are and explains how you can recognise which one is your type. In case you are not sure about your type, on his website you can do a test that reveals your type. CLICK

During the THERAPEUTIC ART ENRICHMENT GROUP PROGRAM we investigate our Wealth Dynamic Profile and create an action plan around it. The Program will support you to take ACTIVE steps toward finding and creating meaningful and fulfilling work activities for yourself

My thoughts on IKIGAI

My country of origin was under communist leaderships for about 50 years. After the ‘bloodless revolution’ in 1989, people became free to chose what to do with their lives. However, the decades of ‘socialistic parenting’ resulted in people having no idea how to make well-founded and mature choices about their lives any more.

‘COMMON SCHEMES’ is the expression I would use to describe how majority of people chose professions and build businesses in the country. There are only two ways to chose a profession here – either to create a fashionable lucrative business or to become an ‘agent’ at the customer service department of one of the many international companies.

What is IKIGAI?

MY THOUGHTS ON IKIGAI

Finding our path to generating wealth is not about knowing how to generate money but finding out who we are and how to follow the right path for out ‘type’.

Wealth Dynamics Profiles show us what direction to take. Finding our IKIGAI helpS us follow that direction with focus and clarity on what our mission.

To get a jumpstart, we look at our IKIGAI clusters and ask ourselves the question: ‘What is no longer relevant?’

With this question we weed out ideas that hinder us: we are often attached to some ideas of what we want to do with our lives, what kind of job we want to do. These attachments are often based on our upbringing or more often than not on the way we see ourselves. These two attachments are deep traps that hinder our finding our our IKIGAI.

An ever deepening self-knowledge is key for realizing your IKIGAI.

Dickinson – ‘I am a poet’

Who are you?

As I am looking at the art I have created over the past three decades, I can see a person taking shape. A person I would not have met otherwise. By placing my experiences, dreams, visions, ideas on paper I made it possible for me to see me.

We believe creativity is a process of self discovery. … Through exposure to different projects and materials as well as making the big and small choices involved in the creation of art, the art process can begin to enhance the life long journey of self-discovery. Everyone creates, and everyone has their own reason for creating what they do. Explore Your Creativity. Become More of Who You Are.

ART MAKER STUDIO, San Francisco LINK to website

I love Emily Dickinson not particularly for her poetry but for the person who she was! I love her for her courage. She dared to look deep into her soul and put in paper what she found there regardless of the conventions of the time and disagreement of others. She boldly lived the person she was at heart: the poet.

If you want to know a bit more about Emily Dickinson, here is a funny and very entertaining video on her life and poetry.

Therapeutic-Art Enrichment Program will support you to recover your sense of creativity, ignite the Spirit within, and get in touch with the REAL YOU. It enables you to uncover and heal enervating thinking patterns so YOUR INNER LIGHT CAN SHINE THROUGH.

FORGIVENESS

There are days when it is really hard for me to be GRATEFUL. When I am challenged on different levels by my environment so much that I simply cannot find the Divine inside of me. I cannot focus within enough to see the Light beyond my own and others’ disturbance. When the only feeling I can identify is anger, even though I know the underlying emotion is pain, this is when the only ‘dealing with it’ for me is FORGIVENESS.

In the mist of my unbearable anger and frustration, I start changing and then drawing

I FORGIVE YOU FOR CHOOSING THIS EXPERIENCE!

The ‘FORGIVENESS’ is ONLY for me. It is not my job to FORGIVE others. Sometimes, I add:

“Father, please forgive them because they do not know what they do!”

Luke 23:34
A forgiveness drawing

As you can see, sometimes, when I create my GRATITUDE JOURNAL, I am actually expressing FORGIVENESS for the things that disturb me because I cannot find the way inside of me to be GRATEFUL for them.

WHEN I FORGIVE, I RELEASE MY DISTURBENCES caused by my experiences!

WEEKLY GRATITUDE JOURNALING CLASS

This is a fun and practical class. We do a short meditation and listen to songs of Gratefulness as we create a piece of artwork related to what we feel grateful for in that moment.

The class is FREE OF CHARGE, ZOOM link is sent upon registration.

As you can see from this video, creating a Gratitude Journal entry feels like being a child again. We are not creating a piece of artwork that needs to look neat and accomplished. We are creating these pictures because IT IS FUN!

Hoppárézimi :)

Nem emlékszem, hogy hogyan szereztem tudomast a könyvről, de amint megjelent, megvettem es elolvastam. Többször is. Végtelenül inspirálónak találtam és ugyanakkor könnyeket fakasztóan mulatságosnak is Zemplényi Zoli történetét. Valahogy az egész életem más fénybe került általa. Hirtelen megértettem, hogy csak egy nyavajgó tini vagyok, akinek az élete unalmas és kényelmes. Életem kihívásai eltörpültek, és minden hisztim ellenére megértettem, hogy azon kivűl, hogy három tanár pikkel rám és anyám nem érti, hogy szerelmes vagyok, az életem kényelmes és tartalmatlan. Míg én azon tűnődik, hogy mit vegyek fel, mások az életükért küzdenek, vagy azért, hogy újra tólószék nélkül közlekedhessenek. A történet megértette velem, hogy az élet valahol, nagyon máshol van. Persze, akkor még csak éreztem, nem értettem mi történik. Ma azt gondolom, hogy Hoppárézimi története hozzá járult ahhoz, hogy élményekkel és kihivásokkal teli életet válasszak. Zemplényi kitartása, akarat ereje és humora biztositott arról, hogy nem csak túlélhetőek az élet adta pofonok, de mulatságosak is!

Awareness and responsibility

Becoming ‘aware’ of myself and my life has been a long journey for me. I am so committed that I created a two-months long program around awareness. Though the program revolves around different themes such as patience, acceptance and more, it is designed to provide powerful and playful ways to become aware of who we are in our Essence (in our core) and who we are not (the conditioned mind-patterns).

To my observation, most people find it ‘scary’ to become present. It is understandable because as soon as awareness takes hold in your consciousness, you become fully responsible for your life and your decisions.

Until you stay ‘unaware’, you can blame the world – the family, the neighbour, the government, God, etc – for anything you feel uncomfortable or frustrated with. As soon as, you start seeing your ‘patterns’ you will start having choices how to respond. Having a choice in how to respond to any situation is LIBERATING! You stop feeling trapped and life becomes a journey rather than a drag!

When you become aware, you will become powerful!

Antony Hopkins on Life

Anthony Hopkins has been one of my inspirations, a silent genius. He is not a star but a humble actor who strives to convey a message and tell a great story through his art. Apart from being one of the greatest actor of our time, he is also a philosopher who contemplates on Life and what is beyond the ‘visible’ world: the Dreamlike nature of Life.

He is talking with passion about moving beyond your comfort-zone and live life to the fullest. Just keep on going! 🙂

MANDALA: Circle of Wholeness

What is it about?

Mandala means “sacred circle” or “container of essence” in Sanskrit. 

The circle is a symbol of wholeness that has been used in ancient traditional healing worldwide.

The Mandala Art process I practice was developed by Dr. Judith Cornell as a modern expression of ancient sacred arts, using a simple colouring technique with white and coloured pencils on black paper to create luminous symbols representing aspects of wholeness.

If I should have a daughter …

… I would like to her to be like Sarah Key. Why? Because she has a VOICE. She is inspiring, fearless, and outspoken. All the qualities I admire about a woman. A young woman of that! She stands up and stands out.

In her talk below, that has been watched by over 15 million people so far, she says

… that’s what the rain boots are for, because rain will wash away everything, if you let it. I want her to look at the world through the underside of a glass-bottom boat, to look through a microscope at the galaxies that exist on the pinpoint of a human mind, … Because there’s nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean refuses to stop kissing the shoreline, no matter how many times it’s sent away. You will put the wind in win some, lose some. You will put the star in starting over, and over.  … And yes, on a scale from one to over-trusting, I am pretty damn naive. But I want her to know that this world is made out of sugar. It can crumble so easily, but don’t be afraid to stick your tongue out and taste it. 

Who is Sarah Key?

Sarah Kay is a poet, performer, educator and the founder of Project VOICE, an organization that uses spoken word poetry to entertain, educate and empower students and teachers worldwide.

Sarah Kay has shared her poetry in 30 countries on six continents: in the middle of cornfields in Iowa, an orthodontist office in Nepal, a viking ship on a fjord in Norway, an LGBTQ community center in India, a church in New Zealand, a nightclub in Singapore, the Royal Danish Theater in Denmark, a public square in Estonia, Carnegie Hall in New York City, the back rooms of bars, juvenile detention centers, middle school gymnasiums and everywhere in between. Her poetry can be found on Netflix TV shows, Uniqlo T-shirts and bookstore shelves. She is the author of four best-selling books of poetry including BThe TypeNo Matter the Wreckage and All Our Wild Wonder.

El Greco

MY INSPIRATIONS VOL6.

El Greco has been characterized by modern scholars as an artist so individual that he belongs to no conventional school.

A unique master. I love El Greco because he was different not only by being a foreigner all his life but by interpreting life around him by his own standards and not by the expectations of his time. He was a passionate rebel with a unique style.

El Greco is regarded as a precursor of both Expressionism and Cubism, while his personality and works were a source of inspiration for poets and writers such as Rainer Maria Rilke and Nikos Kazantzakis. El Greco has been characterized by modern scholars as an artist so individual that he belongs to no conventional school. He is best known for tortuously elongated figures and often fantastic or phantasmagorical pigmentation, marrying Byzantine traditions with those of Western painting.

source Wikipedia

A great article on his work and how he influenced great 20th c. artists by the BBC.

I chose two extracts from the film El Greco that shows what a feisty, single minded. original and ruthlessly honest person El Greco was.
