Emotions are the Switch
Everytime I come across this quote, it feels like Jen Sincero wrote my artist statement for me, and it's just out there existing in the wild. This is why I merge abstraction with realism. When I feel that electricity, I know its God creating through me, everything powerful coming from him.
"Because we are both spiritual and physical beings, we’ve got a whole slew of things going on in the realm of the unseen—thoughts, beliefs, intuition, imagination, emotions, etc., all of which affect our physical realities here on Earth. When you’re in emotional pain, for example, you cry, your face gets all tight and weird looking, maybe you sometimes even puke you’re so upset.
When you’re excited, your heart speeds up, your body tingles, and you run into traffic, drag a stranger out of their car, and kiss them all over their head. Our emotions are the motivating kicks in the rear that alert our bodies that it’s time to take action and make a thought a physical reality. Just like the table lamp takes electricity and transforms it into light, our bodies take thoughts and turn them into results. In order for this to happen, in both cases, a switch needs to be flicked. Emotions are the switch."
