Story of “Beyond the Boundaries” by Debbie Marie Arambula
Like “Beyond the Boundaries”, this year marks a few important landmarks for me: my 30th Wedding Anniversary, our baby girl will be 21 and my biggest adventure, my 50th birthday, today, July 9th.
As my special gift to you, I offer you my most favorite heart as a proclamation and announcement of sorts. We are here, we are love, we live, we love, we grow, we dream!
The inside story of Beyond the Boundaries:
This piece came out of a bolt of total freedom to be in the moment, a place of uninterrupted freedom! Beyond the Boundaries is a constant reminder of the potential value of who we are and what we can do with any situation in life! To turn it around and go beyond what you think you can do is an amazing feeling! So here is that moment captured in time.
The purple criss-cross background of Beyond the Boundaries was painted last year, in December 2009. Not a good year for most in the world, so many lost their homes, their jobs, but worst of all, their self-esteem, their dreams, their hopes . . . I know, I am the Heart Artist. I feel pain unlike most people. I hear the cry of the world like a goddess of love, I cry for the pain of men, women and children across the planet. This criss-cross pattern represents the past, the lost dreams, the lost hopes, the frustrations, and the invalidation of all that one believes. The past is behind us.
In January 2010, after having an amazing conversation with one of my best friends, the criss-cross unfinished background stared at me like a child calling me home to my own dreams, my own goals. And in the corners of my mind & my soul, I found myself in PURE Clear Vision, INSPIRATION & Decision. When one is faced in life with decision to Survive or Succumb, (you know what I am talking about), those times in life when it all comes to a point of breathing life into your dreams or leaving them behind, where you question your path and clarify your journey, it is at the point when greatness arises and you recover yourself from the boundaries of the past.
And the painting whooshed off my brush like a spiritual locomotive of passionate, child-like energy, surging truth from my brush. The heart is simple, true, pure, innocent, and honest, just like the moments when you know that you can achieve anything, and you move beyond the boundaries of negative thought, beyond the boundaries of what is comfortable, but rather a pure desire TO LIVE, TO LOVE, TO GROW, TO DREAM.
