Rising Tension

(2019) Tension for Change [Mixed Media on Canvas]

When you’re about to cross the chasm – the threshold of experience – tension awaits.

Tension beckons but you can’t move forward because you’re paralysed with Fear.

Fear takes hold because for the longest time you’ve been conditioned to think that forward motion isn’t possible. The Unknown is a scary place; but you will not perish. You will survive it.

As the fog fades in the background, a light flickers in the convoluted stream of consciousness, you see a way out. The tension moves you forward.

Create tension on behalf of change.

Upended

Every now and then, insights arise that don’t quite jibe with the observations that came before. Such aberrations yield a more nuanced understanding of the topic and are folded into the narrative of what we know. Sometimes, though, a new discovery is so profound that it is impossible to reconcile, and knowledge must proceed in a different direction entirely.

Who am I?

I am an ardent researcher, seeker, and artist. As co-founder of Daylight Creative Therapies (a private practice) based in Singapore, I happen to do the job that I love: psychotherapy – principles which should be accessible to one and all who desire insight and change. I relish getting lost in good books (especially Fantasy/Sci-Fi) and use creative writing and/or art-making as a form of self-overcoming.

What is this for?

The Daylight Compendium is a personal project. A consolidated process of all my readings, inspirations, knowledge-digestion and written/visual reflections. I’ve allowed my fear (of not-good-enough) to hold this project back for almost 4 years. No more. In the words popularised by Seth Godin: Salto Mortale.
