Muse-Creations for Our Forgive it Forward Giveaway – Because forgiveness and creativity go hand-in-hand for us, Ray and I thought it would be fun to spice up our 35-day Forgive It Forward project launch with a focus on the arts. So, we sent a call out to the muses among us for a little assist and some inspiration.
Between June 14th and July 19th, we introduced artists, sculptors, potters, musicians – and more – who forgave it forward with us by donating a gift for a random drawing giveaway. Each muse answered two questions and shared a little bit about their creative process and passion. We hope they inspire you.
Sharron Cee: Mandala Artist
She was always a creative child, but her creativity was sidelined by life and serious academic pursuits. Now in her dotage, her inner child has reawakened to the joy of the creative process.
Hmmm. Wouldn’t a Mandala created from a wedding photo be a unique gift?
So, tell us Sharron …
R&B: What does ‘forgive it forward’ mean to you?
SC: To me, ‘forgive it forward’ means living life without resentment or anger toward oneself or any other being. It means living each moment in a state of compassion/loving-kindness, wisdom and grace so that we may, as Milarepa so aptly put it, ‘live and die without regret.’ To ‘forgive it forward’ means creating a never-ending cycle of kindness that makes us carriers of compassion to each other.
R&B: How do you feel the art of creating a mandala enriches your life and helps to heal our world?
SC: Arts are the ultimate connection. We don’t need to live in the same place or speak the same language to appreciate art. We understand that we are ‘one’ through seeing, touching, hearing, sensing, creating, appreciating – experiencing – the power of art. Like the human spirit, art knows no boundaries. It nurtures the spirit of the young, the old, and everyone in between.
