The Abandonment of Doubt by JustinChristenbery
The Abandonment of Doubt
42"x42" acrylic on canvas

Previously titled Metacognition. Be aware of awareness. That is when and where empowerment arises. 

10/21/2014: I've altered the title as I was never really content w/ the piece's previous moniker. Perhaps this one'll stick.

     Life is Surging at this very moment. Around you- through you... As you. Your mind is a tool slowly & tenuously mastered- a lens, of sorts, that you use to focus this Life-that-you-are. This is where many trip up:  The mind only ever remains a tool, and as powerful as it can become, it will never compare to or replace the Pure Life that we are. If the mind is a lens, what matters that lens when the light itself is at hand? The mind is useful. YOU are essential- and quite skilled at Living w/out minding your mind.

Stop trying to listen to your heart so that It can become you. Forget thinking and embrace knowing.
Flow happens... Mind is absorbed and blended into Being, and Life's sweetest nectar is tasted.

Life is an experiment and a dream- open and submit to Its process. All potentials are born within your imagination.

Above: Live painting performance piece. Sketched/painted a room-full of rowdy locals and their entertainers.

Current Residence: Charlotte, NC US
Interests
I think art's promise is a released and empowered soul. It's less about the art made than the energetic act of creation itself. Somehow, the process unlocks something within those who hear the call to create & respond. We can always be more than we are, and it is the creative act that reveals the truth of this to the conscious mind.


     Changes, changes....
         
        The call to create resounds...

     ...it is a time of accepting, choosing, and engaging Life's process on every level.


     Personally, I'm looking to deeply apply everything I've learned. About painting, love, business...in short about Life & being human. I think  big surprises are just around the corner for us as a species. We are capable of so much more than we have dared let on, but there are those who are tired of holding back. More than that, they are realizing that the time for holding back- & there was a long, long time for that- is passed.
