“Life is a journey of learning to LOVE yourself first and then extending that LOVE to others in every encounter.”
Separation has been growing exponentially all over the globe and with that inevitably comes unhappiness. In the last few decades technology alienated us to a large degree but once Covid hit, division among people took unprecedented levels. At the same time, our innate human nature calls for closeness, connection, and caring for each other because in our very core we are relationally dependent species.
HEALING ARTS: The Power of Creativity & Good Intent
“Share a HeART” Movement
“Share a HeART” is a Global Unity Project by Tree of Hearts that CONNECTS people through HEART-THEMED-ART created to benefit and uplift fellow humans in need, support our elderly, and empower our children. The main focus of this initiative is to spark a conversation, reinvent connections in our local communities, inspire creativity, and ignite a meaningful interaction between people, rooted in love, kindness, and compassion. Art is a universal language with a much greater purpose than just being beautiful. When art is created with the intention to be for the good of others, build a bridge, or touch someone’s heart, it becomes an evolutionary tool with huge transformational power. A piece of art gifted from a place of love and compassion, can connect, empower and restore human relationships beyond all perceived boundaries and limitations.
ART IS A CHILD OF THE HEART
When we are in a creative process, it’s much easier to connect to the our own essence, understand better ourselves and others because creativity makes us more centered, inspired, it clears the mind from negative thoughts and emotions, and opens the heart to the flow of the universe, invisible for the eyes. As Pablo Picasso once said: “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life”.
And in this pivotal moment of human history, a movement based on the principle of the Heart can bring us together, give us a greater sense of purpose in life, knowing we are the difference we want to see in the world. We are all connected by invisible threads and the little things we choose to do every day, can greatly impact the troubled world we see around us. These times are a blessing in disguise, an opportunity to reconnect through a purposeful creation, help others, collaborate to get more people inspired by a vision of brighter future we can build together, and restore our faith in each other and humanity.
BRIDGING GENERATIONS FOR A BETTER WORLD
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if our children are encouraged not just to create, but CREATE FOR A CAUSE and give their adorable art to those who need emotional support, for example seniors living alone or in care/retirement homes. That is going to empower our kids and uplift our elderly whose lives have been especially challenging during these times. TRANS-GENERATIONAL BRIDGING can close the gap between these two most vulnerable groups of our society and decrease the growing number of loneliness, depression, and anxiety among them. Since strong connections are a marker of a thriving society, now more then ever we need to do our part and restore what we have lost during these last two years, so we can start living in communion again. Children are natural BRIDGE-BUILDERS and their beautiful art can do miracles for restoring community connections, that will also boost their confidence they can impact the life of others by simply being creative, compassionate and kind.
WEAVING THE WEB OF LIFE AND CELEBRATING CONNECTION
Would we be happier if we live in a commUNITY, care for and support each other like a family? Science say”yes” to this! As we all know from personal experience , the quality of life is equal to the quality of our relationships, so building harmonious and loving relationships is building happiness for ourselves and others naturally. Healing arts are a powerful tool to restore connection on an individual and collective level and shift the old paradigm of alienation, separation, and survival. A heart-centered approach to the world and each other is the key, the true initiation for raising consciousness and the ultimate road to a thriving society – one based on the principles of unity, harmony, peace, evolution, and mutual growth.
FROM LOVE-OF-POWER TO THE POWER-OF-LOVE
The difference between “illness and wellness is the same between “I” and “WE”. Love and connection support all life, without the them life would never be possible, while fear, division, competition,and negative states of mind inevitably manifest as illnesses – mental, emotional, and physical.
IN THE SPIRIT OF PHILANTHROPY
“We’ve been infected with this idea that Love is an emotion only felt between two people. But Love is universal. An energy. An contagious force. A gift. To offer money to a homeless man is to love. To save a worm from the sun is to love. To smile at a stranger is to love. ” A.R. Lucas
Giving can be deeply gratifying experience in so many ways; a gift created with the intent to help and support someone is much more than saying “I care about you” – it has the power to light up their soul and make a tremendous difference, so their life takes a turn unlikely otherwise!
LIFE IS AN ECHO: WHAT YOU SEND OUT COMES BACK TO YOU! GIVING is actually RECEIVING and one of those miraculous things if it carries the signature of love and compassion. Creative power along with good will can build strong community spirit and that is the very foundation of a thriving society.
“If you want to be happy for an hour, take a nap. If you want to be happy for a day, go fishing. If you want to be happy for a year, inherit a fortune. But if you want to be happy for a lifetime, go and help someone!” ~Ancient Proverb
When we embody creativity, compassion, and reverence for all life – plant, animal and human, we not only will illuminate and elevate our own being, but we tremendously uplift the consciousness of mankind and inevitably shift the old paradigm . Since we are all interconnected, we can only flourish when we are willing to extend our kindness to people around us, take care of each other, and support each other lovingly in the process. The time has come to love, honor, and recognize the sacredness of Life in ourselves and every being we meet on our journey!
ANOTHER PERSPECTIVE OF OUR TRUE PURPOSE IN LIFE
“What is my purpose in life?”, I asked the Universe.
“What if I told you, you’re fulfilled it when you took an extra hour to talk to that kid about his life,” said the Universe.
“Or when you paid for that young couple in the restaurant. Or when you saved that dog in the traffic. Or when you tied your father’s shoes when he couldn’t reach.
Your problem is that you equate your Purpose with goal-based achievements. But the Universe is not interested in your achievements … just your Heart. When you choose to act out of kindness, compassion, and Love, you’re already aligned with your True Purpose.”
If you heard the call, grab a rock and paint a heART … or many❤️🧡💛💚💙💜 then give it lovingly to someone! We have all been asked to open our hearts. meet people first instead of waiting for them to meet us and create a better tomorrow TOGETHER!
