Exquisite Safaris Philanthropic Travel Worldwide

Welcome to the jungle...

There is a growing phenomenon happening throughout the world, a gentle but profound revolution in human consciousness. It is something that has been experienced directly by millions of everyday people from all walks of life and the numbers continue to multiply exponentially. The breakthroughs they have experienced are startlingly similar and are marked by a new sense of well-being, increased joy in life, diminished fear, and a natural impulse to serve and contribute to the world in a real way.

Whoever, whereever,

Through the trials and difficulties of the past few months this gateway to the world of the positive, creative, cooperative future has been one of the sustaining factors in my life.

Thank you, Paul, loving jaguar.

I stumbled upon your blog and what a pure delight it is! Jean Houston speaks of "Social Artists are leaders in many fields who bring the same order of passion and skill that an artist brings to his or her art form, to the canvas of our social reality. It is within the depth work of Social Artistry that we can access the inner capacities to align ourselves with the earth's higher purpose." You, in your precise observations that are made available to everyone on line, are a social artist.

You have made an instant fan of me. I am a visual artist, and over the last three years have been in free fall, including the loss of our home and bankruptcy. I have had to face my worst fears and learn about surrender in every moment, so I'm deeply grateful for all that has transpired. It has transformed me in ways I would never have imagined if life hadn't lived me in this way.

I am currently trusting that my art will support me. My intention and my joy is to create artwork that reminds us of our deepest wisdom and the truth of who we really are. In these challenging times, it is helpful to surround ourselves with images, words, icons and symbols that call us to our deepest knowing and remind us of our most profound truth.

Thank you for your sharing. You are an inspiration.

This is a particularly special post for me that you commented on, although no longer "new" it is ever fresh in my mind. Wyatt changed my life, whether he truly knows it or not (we still keep in touch.)

Free fall. Hmmmm, yes I know too. Rug after rug being pulled out under one. No center. Until I cried uncle, I was already knew it all and it was just a matter of applying that knowledge. I still resist, and take the reins much too often away from grace, but I am so thankful for the wakeup calls I got that shattered everything I thought I knew, and eventually gave me willingness to be shown another way, another wisdom (prajna), shown who we are/I am. I was playing with word "surrender" today, first thing that popped up was "sure render" - a purer, unveiled rendering. Anyhow, I love your work - I just had been visiting the PaPaYa! card site and thinking of "divine" cards, and then to find yours, whoa.

I'm really touched that you understand what I'm doing and what I'm about, not too many people do, which gets lonely at times strangely enough. I'm not sure that I can categorize it many other ways than social art. Not so much an activist though it may appear that way outwardly.

Thank you so much. We vitally need more full-time artists. So much more to say, but consider getting the book, "The Gift"...hunch, that you might be interested in the art currency project I'm working on. It's a way that art can support artists and those that are living "one one ours" life rather than "me my mine". I've thought it through in a local context (like local currencies), but I'm awaiting inspiration on how it could spread further than one can walk. Namaste. In Lak'ech Ala K'in.

I forgot to mention two things. One, this is follow-up post to Kindling: http://evelynrodriguez.typepad.com/crossroads_dispatches/2006/12/a_candle_and_a_.html

Two, the card (actually a journal) that caught my eye at PaPaYa's site said: "Sometimes your only available transportation is a leap of faith." - Margaret Shepherd
