Energy In Motion – TAO LP 5

Energy In Motion – TAO LP 5

Observing my hypersensitivity and how everything affects me in this world, I concluded that emotions are energy moving through my body at all times. They contain containing information, just like a language and we can use this energy to create, communicate and connect with others.

Have you ever observed yourself this within while looking at attentively to try to figure out how all of this can be optimized?

We contain a multitude of layered systems, producing and or capturing energies, like electric current, emotions, thoughts, feelings, hunches, attractions, images in our mind’s eye. All of these are systems creating reality as we live it, feel it and sens it.

If you look at light painting from this point of view, Energy in Motion or Emotions, you come to understand that what we are practicing as light painters, is energy art. Moving all this joy and excitement, sometimes frustrations, through our light tools to be captured by the camera.
We are simply expressing externally what is going on internally, light, electricity in motion.
We are creators and energy artists adding a touch of color, fantasy and imagination on this planet.

All of us light painters have gotten an “awe moment” while looking at what came out of the camera at one point or another. The awe-ness, the surprise gets us motivated to do more, the flow of energy is nourishing and generating more excitement to keep going. Awe is a key in our process by transcending the intellect and touching something more profound within.

So today, in this short article, I propose some videos of people sharing their excitements, of being in awe, connecting the dots to generate a wider field of understanding for all of us.
This expansion of consciousness is one of the drivers behind why we create and how to make the world a better place, one photon at the time.
