A human being is a part of a whole, called by us “universe”, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest… a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this person by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” – Albert Einstein

Do you ever wish that people could see the world through your eyes, beyond reality? If they took a peek into your version of the world would they see beauty and exquisiteness or would they see desert tones and monotony?

Have you ever been to Venice Beach? It can be perceived as a bit frightening. If you see it through the eyes of an artist it can be fascinating, colorful and intriguing.

Art, music and books are great for the purpose of transporting you to a different world. I challenge you to pick a place, maybe an ordinary park or even just an aged building that you’ve passed by a hundred times. Do some research and find out little-known facts about it. Take some photos and give it significance. Don’t just look at it in passing–study it, write about it, or paint it. You’ll be pleasantly amazed at how your outlook will start to bloom.
