Stillness… with Respect to Vishnu

Liv' Portrait


I sometimes listen to this with my eyes closed and with no expectation. Quieting the inner voice I utilize every day.  Both positively and negatively. With practice I am able to completely clear my mind, during waking hours, in or out and about. By doing this, I open up to my intuitive mind and experience synchronicity. Sometimes instantly or shortly thereafter. 
synchronicity |ˌsi ng krəˈnisitē|noun1 the simultaneous occurrence of events that appear significantly related but have no discernible causal connection : such synchronicity is quite staggering.2 another term for synchrony (sense 1).ORIGIN 1950s: coined (in sense 1) by C. G. Jung.

Splitting Consciousness through a Creative Standpoint

First Installment of "The Livingroom Johnston Museum Series"


Livingroom  – “Um… I don’t know. Looks familiar though. I do a lot of work in different mediums. Sometimes I forget”.

Jamal “I think I saw this somewhere before”.

Livingroom“Remind me”.

Jamal “Oh! I remember! It was up in a show in Brooklyn. I remember now! That was the show Rasu and Daoud put together right?”.

Livingroom“I Believe so”.

Jamal “You wrote something and blogged about it right?”

Livingroom“Lemme look it up. Got it. The blogs is up on my computer machine”.

Jamal “Okay, read it to me telepathically”. 

Livingroom – Coup d’etat Brooklyn is a clothing and multi media company owned by Rasu Jilani and Daoud Abeid. The two have made a strong impression in American culture, ranging from celebrities appearing in movies and multiple television programs wearing their aparrel, to creating venues/platforms for artists to make their marks in society. I am proud to present this show to you! Let’s go people! Only a couple more hours left till the curtains open! 4-7 p.m PUMA sneakers is also one of the sponsors. I don’t wear em’ but it’s a good look. LOL!

 Jamal – “That’s what’s up! That show was a lot of fun! A whole lot of people came out!”

Livingroom – “Yeah! I’mma watch the video link I posted on youtube right before the show and telepathically give you the sound and visual”.

Jamal“Go ahead! SOLID GOLD!”

The Livingroom Johnston Pink Elephant Series

As the blog transfer is being made and the website build, things are placed in order. Enjoy and thank you!

The title of ‘each’ painting in the “Livingroom Johnston Pink Elephant Series” is “Livingroom Johnston Pink Elephant Series”.
The Pink Elephant represents a goal, created by an individual, that is looked upon by others as ‘undoable!’ Until it is completed. And ‘said’ individual is liberated, as their belief is now a tangible reality, in the face of opposition. The Pink Elephant is also looked upon as an effect of a hallucinogenic drug.

The general group of pharmacological agents commonly known as hallucinogens can be divided into three broad categories: psychedelics, dissociatives, and deliriants. These classes of psychoactive drugs have in common that they can cause subjective changes in perception, thought, emotion and consciousness. Unlike other psychoactive drugs, such as stimulants and opioids, the hallucinogens do not merely amplify familiar states of mind, but rather induce experiences that are qualitatively different from those of ordinary consciousness. These experiences are often compared to non-ordinary forms of consciousness such as trance, meditation, conversion experiences, and dreams. (courtesy of Wikipedia. The free encyclopedia).
Side note: Livingroom Johnston does not indulge in narcodics.
