I Feel, Therefore I Am by Jay Taylor

“I think, therefore I am.”, Descartes said.

Well, Descartes, from where I’m standing, thinking is clearly a useful tool…but is NOT my raison d’etre, nor the compass by which I navigate my existence. Uncritical thinking has sadly run amok and is currently driving the human world into a crisis of epic proportions…

I highly recommend FEELING as a functional, life-serving alternative to thought. If out-of-control thinking is ruining your own life, try JUST SITTING with whatever situation is troubling you; try FEELING something instead of studying an ever-spiralling train of self-perpetuating, unhelpful thoughts.

I guarantee that before long, effective actions will occur to you, and you will realise that as a FEELING organism, you are connected to all things at all times, regardless of what you ‘think’ about that…

My own hand-drawn and painted doodles layered with my own textures and Photoshop CS3 brushes

An expressionistic, exploratory artist, I create without restraint or intent. I am a passionate advocate of natural learning, and this organic approach informs all of my work, giving my creations their vibrancy and spontaneity. An abiding love of nature keeps me going when my rather warped sense of humour fails. Above all, I reject the dysfunction and pain our culture perpetuates. More of the same is of no interest to me. I say “YES” to that which is life-serving: let a new paradigm emerge!
