We do not really experience the truth. Everything we encounter in this life….things, people, places, events, are all experienced through our own, personal filter; these are only distorted reflections of what is really going on. We are each living in our very own personal dream…..and no two people will experience anything the same way.
If I cannot experience your dream, and you cannot experie…nce mine, how can I tell you that I am “right” and you are “wrong”? Until we awaken from the dream, all “truth” is subjective.
This planet is inhabited by billions of dreamers, each starring in their very own, personal dream. Conflict will continue until we understand this, and until we stop trying in vain to have others see things our way. Trying to change others is an impossibility and a terrible waste of time and energy, I feel.
What would happen if we each focused on cleansing and mastering our own perceptions instead?
this is insanely fantastic, and so insanely true
(means ”Silver-blooded woman”. Kanlit Chakto means ”Silver-blooded man”.)
Kanlit Chakti is actually a name for a Queen of the Kulkania Empire (silver-blooded because in my story royal people have silver blood that makes them different ).
This is yet another character design for my book.
There was a male person standing next to her, a King, but I didn’t like him so she is alone! ^^ Btw this drawing took me ages! Like few days! I changed her design 10 times!
And yeah, Kukani people (they live in Kulkania but are called Kukani) are actually dark skinned and resemble Nubian people.
Hope you like her! :)
