I will be forever inspired by out planet’s beauty! This acrylic painting was inspired by Nature and her worldly splendor. Prints are available on my online Gallery Store by clicking the button below.

Stressed? Overwhelmed? Join me for Med-ink-tation Time.

Dear Friends:

Looking to clear your mind and get back to a state of zen?

Or maybe you just want to clear your brain to allow for some new inspired creativity.

I want to share with you a practice I have been doing for some time now. I call it "med-ink-tation".

It's a combination of sketching and meditation.

You don't have to be an artist. Anybody can do it. 🙂

Enjoy the video (it's only 6 minutes long).

Be sure to leave any questions and/or comments here or on the youtube video.

If you like the video, please give it a thumbs up on Youtube.

Sending you endless gratitude and positive healthy vibes.

Peace and Live Creatively!

Emerson: Anger or Peace?

“For every minute you remain angry, you lose 60 seconds of peace.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson.

I love this quote from Emerson. It emphasizes that we can control our state of emotional being by choosing the types of thoughts we want to think. Of course we all get angry sometimes, but the sooner you can abandon it, the sooner you can be at peace. I for one know that is the state of feeling that I would rather be in.

How do we make that shift from anger to peace once we recognize the need to?

For each of us it is different. For some it may be the thought or relocation to a place in nature you find tranquil.

Maybe it’s thinking about butterflies, feeling the warm sun on your face, or a cup of freshly brewed coffee.

For me it varies from closing my eyes and being in silence to getting the hostile junk out of my system by going into a state of artistic creativity.

Whatever your peace is, know it’s there when you need to access it.

Don’t waste your precious minutes living in the time-sucking beast of anger.

Peace and Live Creatively! -Jason
