Why do we do the things we do? Sometimes, we do things without even realizing why were doing it. If we can learn and recognize the real reason that were doing something, we can change our actions and create something different.
So, the main painting scene actually happened about 6 months ago, and the discussion about it was filmed 3 months ago. There’s a reason for taking so long for uploading it, but the details don’t really matter right now.
The main reason why i say that is because during my explanation towards the end about asking the guy why he painted the blobs and mucky looking monster on the painting, i felt that my explanation wasn’t very clear nor easy to grasp the meaning of it (after review).
Instead of remaking and re-filming the whole video, i thought i’d just offer a more clear explanation here.
What was really happening with that painting? Was it:
A: A projection of his awareness onto the painting, meaning that the blob monster came from him?
B: A Reflection of what he saw in the painting itself, meaning that the vibration of the blob monster was already in the picture, in the lines, and he just brought it out into the open to demonstrate that it was there in the first place?
I suppose another question that’s good to ask is “What was the guys intention with the painting? What was he trying to do? Make his mark? Bring awareness to something? Was it sabotage out of jealousy? I have no idea!
And of course, i have to ask the same thing about me and Nikki. What was i trying to do? What was Nikki trying to do.
My answer for me was that i’d never done live painting before, and i was really excited to do it, i also wanted to “put on a show” in a way, because we all want everyone to like us, and i’m just being honest about it. I also wanted to do something nice for Nikki, because she’s a brilliant painter and i think very highly of her.
So yeah! That was the experience, and hopefully this explanation was a little clearer than the one in the video.
