Dear sister Water

Gift of water

“THE GIFT OF WATER”

Dear sister Water. I love you!
 
– To bathe in you – soaking in a wonderful hot tub, a quick cold shower, or the other way around.
– To swim in you – in a Swedish lake or in the sea around Denmark where I live.
– To drink you. The best tasting water is that from a clean stream in the wild after hours of walk on tired feet.
 
You truly are a healing gift to us humans.
 
Thank you dear sister Water that you are here!
 
Love from Lise.
 
PS: This painting is from a new series of art for the upcoming exhibition in the brand new gallery in Gisselfeld Kloster Orangery in Denmark.

GRATITUDE – and about being here, on Earth

Gratitude

GRATITUDE.
 
I am sincerely happy to be human here on earth, with opportunities to love, learn and grow.
 
I remember once when I was about 15 years old, I wrote in my diary that I was happy to be a human being on earth, and it was here I wanted to be now. That I did not want to be heading anywhere else , but simply be fully present here.
 
My parents were religious. Not in the usual understanding, but in a searching, open way. I have deep respect for the fact that they never tried to enforce their beliefs on me. Still, I experienced that what they searched for often sounded like something that was THERE (in heaven) and not HERE. I wanted to be here. I liked it here, on earth, and I could feel heaven right here.

I’m still happy to be here. I mostly feel it when I have good days and can get a grasp of life. On days where everything seems to fall apart (and that happens for us humans, certainly for me!), I find it more difficult to feel gratitude.
 
I would like to practice that; to be able to FEEL gratitude, even on those days. Maybe just for tiny tangible things as my bed, our sweet cat – or a good cup of coffee.
 
Today I’m just grateful. For the blossoming spring, for my work, for my family and how we develop together, and for good friends. Tomorrow may be different. Thank you, Creation, for everything. It is a unique and rich experience to live!
 
Love from Lise.
 

The impractical, DEEPLY CLEVER PASSION

Jumpforjoy

“Jump into Joy/Hop ind I glæden” 30×40 cm/11,8 x 15,7 in – SOLD

Sometimes we do something simply because we have an inexplicable desire to dance, run the marathon or travel to a particular place. Not because it is logical, practical or directly related to anything useful. But because we get a little red in the cheeks and our heart beats faster at the very thought of it. It is Passion that knocking on our door. It is the very key to your own happiness.

The whisper of Passion rarely present in the form of the next logical step. The voice of Passion is the one who actually knows very well what it loves to do, but not so often is heard because frankly it is not paying much attention to the bills that needs paying and your daily duties in general.

But the strange thing is: When we dance a dance or pursue the dream we yearn for, we open to a place inside where it is possible to find a way of life which is BOTH practical AND joyful.
Or, in other words: when we actively listen to our inner passion, it will reward us by spreading its bubbling energy to all parts of your life …….

But first you must listen. Simply hear what it has to say, find out what it longs for. Even though it may say things that seem as if they are taken out of the blue (Tango? – Who has time to dance tango – it requires a partner, it costs money and it can´t really be used for anything practical – after all, this is not Argentina but Denmark…..).

Listen anyway. And do what you can to meet your passions desires. Even tiny step works. If you really listen to your passion, it will reward you with something far more precious than time and money:
– INSPIRATION
– INCREASED INTUITION
– A GOOD PORTION OF HAPPINESS

Which, as far as I know, is a far better basis for thinking practically and clear and generating profits in life. Also in terms of time and money. I think that is SO clever. Passion are really able of something very unique. We just have to remember to listen to it.

Love from Lise.

PS: I am hosting a local painting course here in Denmark, south of Zealand, on sat. May 28th, where we, in addition to learning juicy painting techniques, will train exactly that: listening to our inner Passion. Find the details and sign up HERE – latest signup coming friday the 20th.

– Or email me at mail@lisemeijer.dk and I will send you some info in English, thank you!

And, I want to celebrate!
