Peaces of a Dream STORY
By Debbie Marie Arambula
Like a singer, my voice carries through each painting. Like a song, I tell my stories in color & rhythm. With each brush stoke, a note of energy, with each color, an emotional tone. Painting is my passion, inspiring others my dream, and when the two blend together, I create a masterpiece to the eye of the beholder.
Since a young girl, I have always been passionate about life, culture, dance, music, family & the condition of the world. Dance performance unleashed my deep need to express myself to others. In almost every dance creation, I had hoped to bridge the gap between races & cultures.
Born in 1960 & raised in a time when threat of war, human rights protests, Peace & Love were an integral topic of daily conversations. Fascinated by worldly culture & the weirdness I found in how some men & women judged and segregated other men, women & children of different colors. In the eyes of a child, IT NEVER MADE ANY SENSE TO ME! This observation has been the driving force behind all of my human rights pieces.
Passionate words of hope & inspiration of great leaders like Martin Luther King, Gandhi, Mother Teresa would mold my passionate, humanitarian heart forever. I remember listening to Martin Luther King on TV when I was very, very little & as my heart filled with hope, my eyes filled with the truth of his passionate speech and although I was so young I knew he was speaking truth. I knew that he was talking about hatred, non-acceptance of men and women of different colors and the current condition of human relationships across the planet. It was at that moment that I knew that I would dedicate my life’s work to bringing more love, hope & peace to the world.
Peace, what is it really? We all want it, we all crave it, we all demand it, we all search for it, and we all wish for it. Peace is something that starts with you, within the corners of your own soul. When I think of the world in its current condition, and the simple message of loving that great leaders have carried on their shoulders for centuries, has become a dream-like goal.
For me, Peace is a daily activity of reaching from within, at every chance, and trying to treat others the way I would like to be treated. Now I know the idea is SIMPLE beyond belief, and maybe to some, even childish. But with each day, if I can improve my tolerance, my patience, my love, my kindness, isn’t that creating world peace?
The opportunity for Peace knocks on our door every day and somehow, I truly believe that if enough of us try treating others the way you would want to be treated, we would create enough agreement & enough change that we will inspire a better world to live in for our children, grandchildren, great grandchildren . . .
“We are all spiritual beings, we are the power of the love we create, the thoughts we think and the actions we do! Radiate Love! Shine baby Shine!” Debbie M. Arambula the heart artist
