What is the difference between creating and contributing to positive growth?
Is it enough to achieve without making the world better?
Through artistic creation we can awaken, awaken humanity towards the realization of love and the only remedy.
It will be individual revelation that will be the revolution. It will be individual inner change that will constitute the collective conscious balance. This is how the world will change, and every ailment with it. Not by doing per say, but by being. Remembering who we are and our connection to one another, this is how light overcomes any darkness.
It starts with small changes in the way we think, the way we act, the way we take care of ourselves, the way we eat, the images we consume; which will culminate in an inner growth that our outer experience will mirror.
What is conceived in the eye of the mind gives birth to reality.
Chinese Bamboo EP artwork shot by Jaylyn Todd
//styled by yours truly
So last week I had a photo shoot for the cover artwork for my EP Chinese bamboo, it was fantastic!
I simply cannot wait to share… Thank you to Jaylyn Todd for being the awesome photographer she is and for building me the dopest set.
Here is a sneak peak behind the scenes:
Why do we all wanna look the same? It’s like its a government conspiracy or something….
Thats why current trends are dangerous when they are too trendy – and playing it safe is really a telltale sign of your self-esteem, because if you were really comfortable with who you are you would be able to express that through your self presentation. The truth is many people just find ways to dress themselves in a way that reflects the majority’s opinion of how they think they should look.
I actually feel sad when I’m on the subway and all I see the entire length of the car is endless boring drones dressed in similar conservative ‘uniforms’. Or when I got to a club and everyone is the same version of each other that their personality is no where to be found? Expensive clothes do not make you special either, you’re just a trend follower with a bigger budget.
Don’t they know that fashion is our armour against the mundane reality of our everyday life? Dont they know that everyday matters, and just because you’re not going to a ball doesn’t mean you can’t wear that ball gown? well, you know where I’m going with that….
I believe that one should dress for themselves and not be afraid of what others will think or be influenced by what others expect from them. I get it if you are working for the man and are contractually obligated to wear khakis and a blue shirt 5 days a week, but when given the opportunity to take a fashion chance – do it!EXPRESS YOURSELF! Life is too short to spend it like a sheep in a herd trying to look like everyone else, we are all as unique as the print on our fingers and should be free to express our moods and feelings in the garments of our choice. And if anyone should dare say something off the cuff to you as you are walking by in your creative flyness, just remember that is just them envying your courage to be your true self while they are locked up in the confines of societies’ image of what they think they have to be. Escape the mental prison of conformity.
Miracles only happen to those who believe in miracles.
I opened my set with my song “Party Girl” which featured the super Hot Samantha Watts! Samantha portrayed the role of Party Girl herself, which tells the story of a woman who appears to have it all, yet hidden beneath the surface is a secret loneliness. “Powders her Nose… so nobody will know…”
