Power is of two kinds. One is obtained by the fear of punishment and the other by acts of love. Power based on love is a thousand times more effective and permanent than the one derived from fear of punishment.

The Vibrant Portraits of Alvaro Tapias

Imbued with intensity, Chilean artist Alvaro Tapia brings vibrant, contrasting colors and geometric shapes to his illustrations. Despite his chaotic aesthetic, Tapia admits that the process behind his portraits is meticulous, slow and deliberate. First reducing the image to its contours, he finds method in his madness by using bold techniques that add to the original portrait until the image itself bursts with life.

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.

Equanimity is being present with whatever is happening without believing your judgements about it.
