I believe that you're great, that there's something magnificent about you. Regardless of what has happened to you in your life, regardless of how young or how old you think you might be, the moment you begin to think properly, there's something that is within you, there's power within you, that's greater than the world. It will begin to emerge. It will take over your life. It will feed you. It will clothe you. It will guide you, protect you, direct you, sustain your very existence, if you let it. Now, that is what I know for sure. In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.

There are sacrifices involved. While you don’t have to sacrifice all of everything, you will have to sacrifice a lot. Never forget that. Never pretend that it comes easy. Never envy or hate those who have done it or proclaim that it was so much easier for them if you are struggling. It’s difficult. It’s grueling. Sometimes, it seems like the most difficult endeavor you have ever begun. But you are not alone and it can be done. Failure isn't falling down. It's remaining where you've fallen.

MEANINGS OF EACH COLOUR
Reds are physical and sexual. They love expressing themselves through their sensuality and their physical bodies. They live their lives in the here-and-now with zest, strength, courage and self-confidence.
Reds love to live in physical reality, to manipulate their environment. Reality must be tangible to them. They must be able to see, touch, hear, taste and smell it. Reds are not abstract thinkers. A wall is a wall and there

The important message in negative emotions...(not by me)The important message in negative emotions...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
We often hear that the secret to success is to think
positively or feel appreciation and gratitude.
While these are definitely powerful practices, they
can turn us against parts of ourselves that aren't
thinking and feeling that way.
As a result, we may become resistant to having
negative thoughts and feelings or try to avoid anything
that isn't sweet and rosy.
However, these resistant or avoident strategies fail to
acknowledge the reason why these thoughts and feelings
arise. Instead of alleviating negativity, if anything,
they perpetuate it. Today I'd like to give you different
strategy that both honors and releases us from the
negative effects of negativity.
So, it's likely that you've heard the headlines
that positive thinking and feeling boost your energy
and immune function and propel you toward all the good
things in life. When you hear that news, it's natural to
want to only have positive thoughts and feelings.
It's natural to get a negative edge t

advice on some stuff to look up before tutorialsso im gonna be starting to make some tutorials soonadvice on some stuff to look up before tutorials2 years ago in Personal More Like This
before that you should look up some informations
you probably noticed that in my work it is often hard to distinguish if im using a zbrush model or just painined it all in photoshop
reason for that is simple.
my realism rendering is greatly based on 3 d rendering processes.
by this i mean as i learned 3d i became aware of the stuff we usually visually take for granted.
qualities of material, importance of reflectivity, ambient occlusion, and subsurface scattering.
to any 3d artist these are everyday terms, while 2d artists usually paint them without often even being aware of wheat they are really doing
for instance , a 3d artist will at any given point use 2 types of shadows. cast shadows from a direct lightsource, and ambient occlusion shadows which naturally appear more intensively the closer planes of an object are together.
i can get into this and make it a long discussion , but easier w

Dragon Poem...(Not by me)Dragon Poem...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Some say they never were,
And were birthed from imagination.
The same say that fantasy
Is the realm of children and the insane.
To believe in the magical, the mythical,
And the fantastic
Is to be as a child or a madman.
I am neither and I believe in dragons.
The majestic Lords of skie
Born of fire.
In an averie of flames
The eggs lie
Warmed by mothers breath.
Emerging weak and hungry,
Unfurl for the first time.
For mothers attention.
Noble, proud and powerful
Lords of the skie
Reach the very stars with
A thermal sigh
And one thunderous wingbeat.
Upon the winds they soar

3 steps to transform any bad habit...(not by me)3 steps to transform any bad habit...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
We all have thoughts, feelings, behaviors and
habits that we would like to change!
You might look at the title to this article, note its
length, and doubt that so few words could really give
you the keys to overcoming your bad habits.
It's likely that you've tried various techniques with
varying levels of success and concluded that stopping
yourself from doing something that strongly pulls at
you is a hard thing to do. How could the secrets to
doing that be summarized so briefly?
While it's true that stopping bad habits can feel
like a complex and overwhelming challenge, the steps to
doing it are not complex--they are fairly simple. The
consistent repetition of three simple steps can give
you freedom from what you don't want and engagement
in what you do want instead.
Let's see how this can work.
The first step to quitting anything is recognizing
exactly what you are doing. Shine your attention on
what you are doing in precise detail. It's easy to
Dragon meditation...(Not by me)Dragon meditation...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
To align yourself better with the Great Dragon, which is to say with the flow of Divine Energy, use this meditation often.
Place yourself in a comfortable position, and begin as always by clearing and releasing.
Imagine yourself before a flight of stairs.
Imagine that you climb these stairs, one stair at a time, counting each as you go.
With each of the stairs you will go deeper into yourself.
There are ten stairs in all.
At the top of the stairs you come to a hallway.
It is a long hallway, with many doors on either side.
Note the details of this hallway-what color are the walls? Is it clean? Do you like the hallway?
Imagine yourself walking down this hallway until you come to a door that is marked with an "X."
This is your door.
Inside the door you will find a beautiful landscape.
Feel the things around you-make the visualization as real as you can.
As you look around the landscape you will see a large Dragon.
Go to it.
Give the Dragon greetings.

Origin of the Welsh Dragon...(Not by me)Origin of the Welsh Dragon...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The Welsh dragon remains a strong national symbol of Wales but what are the origins of the iconic red dragon?
Some of the earliest references to dragons can be found in ancient Welsh literature between 400 and 700 AD. Following the retreat of the Roman empire, Britain was subject to a period or major upheaval where warring tribes struggled to gain the upper hand.
As with much of literature much can be read into the symbolic aspect of the dragon. Dragon's represent strength and power but also destruction.
Ancient Welsh poets Aneirin and Taliesin used the Welsh word for dragon "draig" to mean warrior or leader. Later in 800 A.D The dragon emerged as a symbol of national independence in the Historia Brittonum ascribed to Nennius. Here the dragon represents national independence in the story of the red dragon battling with the white dragon of the Saxon enemy.
Later during the Norman conquest in the 11th century, the dragon was used by both the Norman's and the Anglo Saxo

Which Yu-Gi-Oh! Show I love the mostWell everyone! I have watched three out of four yugioh series. I have finished Yugioh DM, Yugioh 5D's and I'll soon finish GX too. Well I haven't watched Zexal yet and for the time being I don't find it...THAT attractive! (well eventually I might watch it) Well I came to this conclusion! If I put them in the top three of Yugioh favourites I would say that this would be the orderWhich Yu-Gi-Oh! Show I love the most1 year ago in Personal More Like This
1. Yu-Gi-Oh! (DM and Zero)
2. Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's
3. Yu-Gi-Oh! GX
Well GX is also interesting and stuff and I liked the funny Judai/Jaden but still it doesn't have the mystery and that great sunspence the other two have (only personal opinion!) Therefore the two left are my top two. Now which one I like the most and why?...Well...Yugioh original is the top to me! I admitt that 5d's had really impressive effects and really great storyline but still the original is far better to me for the following reasons!
1. The original includes the ancient Egyptian mystery and since I am kinda obsessed with egyptian mystery well.
