Tip of the day: Peace and Enlightenment by imaginism Tip of the day: Peace and Enlightenment by imaginism
Tip of the Day: Your heart & mind are the gates to success & happiness. Keep them open or miss out on great ideas and opportunities.

To keep my mind open I constantly empty it by meditation. I sit there and try to think of nothing. Every time my mind wanders, I try to catch myself and blank out again. I'm not the biggest fan of meditation (actually I was quite hesitant) but I find that ever since I started, my mind is sharper, more efficient and creative. I feel that when we empty our minds, our brains have more computing power.

Sending positive vibes to you all!

Bobby

Love the message! Have you ever found that you can meditate while doing art? (Draw with no verbal thoughts going through your head?) Or do you have to do nothing while meditating?

Your mind is the water your thought boats float on, keep your mind calm and still and allow these boats to pass freely through your mind without anchoring them.

Sending positive vibes back at ya!

Haha!! I LOVE THIS. People at my school always poke fun at me for drawing reptiles and amphibians a lot...especially frogs. But they're just so darn cute and have so much personality. This is such a fun little character. I think it would be amazing to see this with more value and developed into either a full-blown illustration with color, but it could be beautiful simply black and white, too. It'd be fun to play with the lighting, too (I imagine he's being lit from the underneath by the flower...so cool!).

Hey, I like this picture (especially the toes ^^), but I wanted to comment on your Tip.

I won't tell you you're meditating the wrong way, but it sounds like you're struggling when you do it, which is a shame. You don't have to try to meditate, as meditation is the absence of trying. Don't try to empty your mind, just let your mind do whatever it wants and come back to the present moment by noticing where you are, feeling yourself breathing, etc.

Meditation will help you clear your mind, but the meditation is meant to do the clearing. It should be the goal, not the process. If you trying to clear it by telling yourself not to think, you aren't letting the meditation do it for you. You might get there eventually, but I can see why it wouldn't seem like an enjoyable experience if you're doing it that way.
