By Marco Mendoza
I have always been fascinated by the idea of our inner selfâ€¦what is it? What make us how we are? What we think, how we act, what we are looking for?...will we find it? Or do we already have it but we prefer to replace it with societyâ€™s acceptation?
In todayâ€™s culture where all the information is at a glance in a matter of seconds, we have dubbed every human perspective that presumes as a â€śTrueâ€ť idea, finding that there are always multiple points of views of every truth on any subject. Any attempt to comprehend a â€śwholeâ€ť must take the point of view of anotherâ€™s individuals, each with her or his own opinion, his or her own â€śtruthâ€ťâ€¦ So we are living between that balance, our own truth and the others own truth tooâ€¦that fight affects us individually in our own way and we try to find that peace at our own way tooâ€¦
For me personally (my own truth) has been finding that balance trough meditation, Iâ€™ve been meditating since around 15 years ago, and recently got into a program to become a Certified Life-Artistry Meditation Guide, Iâ€™m still working on FINDING MYSELF and in that road Iâ€™ve been working on this Art series that I call â€śFINDING USâ€ť â€¦I have been asking a lot..What is the meaning of that rounded semicircle that you use in your paintings?, -well ..I ask them- what does it mean to you? And I got lots of different answers that I love to hear and learn about, so when they start to talk about it and what they feel about it or make them feel I just tell them, that's your answer! Itâ€™s your true self talking, that why I said that my paintings are more like a â€śStimulus to discover your inner selfâ€ť
