Episode 2 - The 5 Hindrances Preventing Clarity, Mastery and Doing Art - 60" x 48" on Canvas

TedTalk Video:

The 5 hindrances that stop you from self-mastery, clarity, or simply doing or attempting Art.

  1. Sensual desire (sight/touch/taste/smell/hearing) = Am I addicted to something that stimulates one of these senses preventing me or clouding my mind?

  2. Ill Will / Aversion = Am I feeling a negative emotion of frustration, anger, thoughts of quitting?

  3. Dullness / Heaviness = Am I unmotivated, depressed, lack of energy, not wanting to move?

  4. Restlessness = Is my mind jumping from thought to thought, too many ideas not enough time?

  5. Skeptical Doubt = Am I indecisive?

R.A.I.N. is the solution

Recognize which one you're experiencing

Accept that's what you're experiencing

Investigate why you're experiencing it

Non-identify with that experience: 'I am not the body, I am not the mind, I am not my emotion.'

This helps you disconnect yourself from the hindrance you are feeling In this video, I explain my thought process and techniques as I work through this painting. This is a DYI on how to use alcohol inks. It's for Beginners/Intermediate students
