We have all looked for love in our lives. Maybe you’re still looking for love? Still looking for a lover who’ll accept and love you completely and deeply just as you are, who will cherish you like the most beautiful and precious blossoming flower in the world?

Who doesn’t long for such tender, sweet and almost divine feelings?

Then one freezing winter morning, a rose blossomed in my garden. It was the only rose flower radiating vibrantly in the cold. And I realized that we all have the capability to give ourselves the love that we so desire. If we cannot love ourselves deeply and fully, how can we expect others to love us so? How can we give others love of such divine quality?

Love yourself deeply and fully, and you too, will blossom, even in the most unlikely situations.

Reconnect with Your Faith through Art

faith through art

Born and educated in Communist China until I was 16 years of age, I had been raised as an atheist. You only believe what you see, that’s how you avoid being fooled. And a “belief” in anything other than the Communist party is a superstition.

It’s only after I started painting, that I started to […]
