In this 90-second video, American author, professor, and philosopher Sam Keen briefly shares his thoughts on the two ways of wandering. One is as lost, which can leave us feeling desperate and in panic. The other way of wandering is with an outlook of wonder—like an explorer discovering a new territory.
In this example, we can see how our perspective affects the outcome of our experience. If we feel helpless or victimized, we are more prone to panic and anxiety. On the other hand, if we can meet a temporary sense of disorientation with wonder and curiosity, it can become an experience of joy and new possibility.
If you find yourself feeling lost and would like to experience wonder instead, we invite you to pick up a crayon, close your eyes, and explore. Exploring without your sight as your crayon wanders across your paper will help you notice how the freedom of movement feels and give you the freedom to create whatever feels good for you. Simple drawing activities like this can evoke a sense of wonder and promote deep relaxation that resets the body during times of stress.
With this in mind, we invite you to explore some of the ICWIB art activities and videos for FREE.
Also in a recent interview Dr. Bruce Lipton said, “…Freedom is the ability to create without the limitation of generational programming. The I Create What I Believe! (ICWIB!) Program is a gateway and a pathway into a new and better future because it allows children to fully express themselves and to not be limited by the beliefs that have been passed down from generation to generation. This program also frees up children’s minds and allows their creative nature to create a better world for all of us, which is what we need right now!…”
