Life's Path ways

We came from the fullest of potentials. With every aching moment we trail further away from our glory.

It is in this moment(represented in yellow and orange lights), our moments in our lifetime that we find our doctrines, pathways, journey and pilgrimages. What marks a lifetime is not the destination, but the journey.

Our potential, where we start from ultimately has interaction principle to it’s nature. We are born into children of war by the environment through no fault of our own; we become painters through aspirations, doctors in pursuing the internal and external remedies, science in discovery, knowledge in power, healing our earth through cultivation, all are music brought forth by the muses, voices of the world. Our potentials in analogy.

While the cracks and tears in the mirrors of our lifetimes are the concerns to said potentials. The turmoils to which our internal and external conflict beckons.

Kubo Heart of Gold
Drawing on a similar parallel as Kubo, i think us artist will on our journey come to realize that our true power lies in our heart. To the extend that all our instruments in the world serves to extend that power. Nothing can take away that passion and rage. And with it, we'll become inspired by our enriching world and inspire others to follow suit, reaching for our pursuit of happiness and protect those that are close to us with all of our might.

In the movie, Kubo draws power from his Shamisen. So my interpretation is the extension of his heart. The God-like power to which he wields, the tragic, struggle and realization that what he comes to past are still a long and arduous journey. Keep searching for your pursuit of happiness, young Kubo!

Clad in gold and azure, an angel and a demon face each other, fighting over the morning sun, sundering the skies over the horizon in its amber light. While the angel has the rising star within reach, it is to the demon's side of the canvas that the disc of light belongs, like a dark omen of what is to come. The Sun embodies one's true self, the essence of what makes you "you". Torn apart between the opposing forces, it lies at the heart of the eternal battle: reason against emotion, truth against lies, life against death. On our journey of self-discovery, we hope to reach balance between our conflicting sides and finally soar through the skies, free and complete. Little do we know that it is through the very journey we go on that we truly fulfill ourselves.


The main inspiration sources for this piece were Ghibli Studios' movie The Wind Rises, a tarot reading someone was kind enough to give me during the Anime St. Louis 2016 show, and a beautiful scenery on my way home. During the latter, I drove by some small factory cooling chimneys puffing out fluffy, plumpy little white clouds in the air. They would linger for while, disperse, then blur away with their pale radiance. What a wonderful view it was. As for the tarot reading, it revealed to me that the opposing pair was overseeing my journey in search for happiness.

I am now left with questions: what path should we take on our way to fulfilling ourselves? While I don't know the answer, I know that we must take on the journey. As Steven Pressfield puts it: "If you were meant to cure cancer or write a symphony or crack cold fusion and you don't do it, you not only hurt yourself, even destroy yourself. You hurt your children. You hurt me. You hurt the planet[...] Don't cheat us of your contribution. Give us what you've got.” (The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks and Win Your Inner Creative Battles) 

Growth is measure in knowledge. Stay curious and stay creative. Anything and everything of a repeating lesson can be learn and explore through a lifetime. Keep pursuing for a better future. Don't be fully satisfy with where you are now, keep reaching for a brighter day. No one can do it for you, but everyone CAN help you get there.

Stretch, and run! Life is a marathon, not a sprint.

Hiya, My name is Pui and I enjoy creating storytelling through visuals art. My believes are that art(of any kind be it music, dance, literature or visuals) is but a simple empty vessel, by implementing various subject matters, such as philosophy and spiritual pursuit we can feel that art itself enriches above all our expectations. It is fulfilling and a potential- in the pursuit of happiness and

Art is the creations of life.
