“You did not come here to fix the world. The world is not broken. You came here to live a wonderful life.” Abraham Hicks.

For the longest time I didn’t read it. After all it was a national best seller. I mean, come on, popularity? Popular likes Dan Brown too. But then one day at the library I found it, by accident really, and it turned out, well, sometimes the popular can be good.

Elizabeth Gilbert can write her ass off. E,P,L won me over. But it was TED that that made me realize this girl understands art.

Azellah showed up in my art stream. In her/his profile was a link to a TED speech by Gilbert that really knocked my socks off, or would have if I wear socks. She’s speaking about the artist and success and our ideals about artists, or more properly, “our” sucky mindset over how we treat artists in relation to “success”. This talk is proof that our culture is desperate for change. Change at the molecular level.

The link is 18 minutes of your life. But for your investment, you get 18 minutes of well thought out, on the edge of your seat, make you feel good, change the world one heart at a time empowerment. This woman is 18 minutes of constant forward motion. And she believes in art.
