And let go

Music has a way of elevating my soul. It speaks through the deepest darkness, of one where I unite with my divine creator. I think it’s beautiful how we create from a place of vulnerability, of emptying ourselves and letting go of our inner inhibitions. Whether you are an artist, a dancer, or a musician, it doesn’t really matter. What matters most is the space where you create from. Do you allow or do you withhold?

We learn to be brave because we create from our own stories. We believe in purpose and mission, for without it, everything is meaningless. A picture perfect piece speaks nothing but one without flaws. Great art happens only when you create from within. A space that you call your own, one that you belong to, and one you call home.

“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” – Dr. Seuss.

We need to let go, and let God. Our worth is found in God, because only God knows, He sees and He understands. To always look to God for strength, and courage because only He can inspire. The greatest thing about being an artist- is to see God everywhere, because we are made this way.

We just need to breathe.


The Carbonaro Effect

As a child, we believed in what we believe, and we say it like it is. It’s the beauty of God, that one speaks freely, without any fear whatsoever. But as we grow up, we start to change, we want to grow-up quickly, to be like that sister or brother that is our role-model. We fail to recognize that we are all made special, uniquely us, to be a child of God.

Fairy-tales, dreams we believed in, that princesses lived in castles where they wait for prince charming to rescue them. We were all led to a false truth, at a young age, and a false hope we believed in. The true story of humanity, however is already written in the Bible. A book not just written some 2,000 years ago, but in historical context that mentions the presence of Christ, in B.C (Before Christ) , and A.D (After the death of Christ).

Stories, movies, and fictional tales all written by human writers, and we believed them, because we never really grew up. We want to be like Peter Pan, to fly to Neverland and live there forever, because the truth hurts. Living in this world where we are not from this world, we struggle to confront the truths within our heart. We know that there is a God, and He exists. It’s just that we are afraid, unknown of what we cannot see, but also because we know that somewhere deep in our hearts, we are made for something more.

Keys to your own homeSo my dear brothers and sisters, I pray for you, that you may truly find a place where you belong, where you can call home. Where our ultimate home lies not on earth, but in heaven. It’s no wonder that Jesus said,

Jesus - let all the little children come to me
“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” – Matt 19:14
