brianaevigan Sure missing being at this magical place right now. There is absolutely NOTHING like it. I can definitely feel being there from this wonderful video, seeing everyone’s beautiful smiling faces from my living room tonight. Sending love to you ALL!!! 🧡🙏🏽
brianaevigan There is great strength in all of us... but we live in a destructive world. What are you called to do? What do you stand for? When you look into the eyes of another, and you see their soul, what do you see? Excited about the magic my team and I are creating over here. Remember to be a peace maker not a peace keeper. 🙏🏽🧡
brianaevigan As I sit here in the jacuzzi luckily, looking up at the stars alone, I remember @elephant_heart put out a new song that they wrote during quarantine. Let’s just say, what perfect timing. As I know these two humans deeply and have watched them grown from baby to full grown baby what I continue to see is they have exceeded any expectation any human could have in the form of what we call art. I don’t create many expectations but these two make me wanna grow and actually set some! I know this fish tank and I can’t believe what they did with it... free of fish ;) watch the shapes form into faces. What I love is that I bet every person that watches this will see something different. Our minds are so beautiful, and Vic and Dorian I can see a sliver into your minds watching this seeing into the way you see the world. “The sky falls down and the feet won’t touch the ground. As the rain falls down let my heart cry out And the rain keeps pouring down Don’t worry baby... “my mind says” everything will be...” so for all of us “single” in quarantine, struggling through Marriages, dealing with domestic violence, trying to find your purpose or how to get out, what ever that may look like. Pain is pain, we are all searching, we really are all in this together. Please watch this piece of art and watch the world change around you. As we all follow this mission in changing the hearts of others. Please remember, do not judge your brothers and sisters, art can change the world. Music can change the world.
That lyric “The sky falls down and the feet won’t touch the ground, I have felt so many times...
As the rain falls down let my heart cry out And the rain keeps pouring down, I have felt so many times...
Don’t worry baby (from an old song we all know) set me right in the direction of remembering EVERYTHING IS RIGHT where it’s supposed to be. A line I need to hear on a daily basis and tell myself. The rain and the wind heal all, so do a couple of a amazing family members, friends, a fire pit, and the stars. When GOD speaks listen. Thank you @elephant_heart for all that you are and all that you do. Thank you for speaking to my heart. (Proof read tomorrow) 🐘💨🧡
brianaevigan Oh the beauty of planet earth... it never gets old to look at. We will easily be whipped out, don’t forget. Take care of yourself, take care of the planet, take care of the animals, take care of your brothers and sisters. We were given a perfect place to live in that works perfectly within itself. Only we are the ones that are destructive. Between politics, climate change, the natural disasters, discrimination and all the hatred in the world, I know there is still love, it is the only weapon. There will always be beauty. Listen to your heart and follow those special gifts given to you, they are just for you. I love you. 🧡
brianaevigan My favorite day of all days... #worldelephantday my favorite friend on the planet. My spirt animal. My guides in life. I miss you africa, I miss you Indonesia. Here’s some snippets of what I miss most on a day like today. Trekking through the deep forest to find wild elephants. Finding tiger prints and kind of hoping they’re close by. Orangutans popping out of nowhere. Meeting sunshine one of the bigger elephants I’ve ever been right in front of. Getting to spend time with Salma even though we all knew when we left she would never survive where she was living. It all breaks my heart but at the same time it all gives me purpose. I look forward to finding rivers and setting up camp with people I’ve just met, listening to the forest, the jungles, and the bush. They have so much to teach us. I love planet earth and today I feel very grateful to be here. These majestic souls are loyal, compassionate, honest, survivors, wild, strong, gentle, and brilliant. They also never forget you. They need family to survive they need connection... just like all of us. We’re in this together. Keep loving, keep being true to your heart!!! 🐘💨🧡 #keepthewildwild
brianaevigan Last week I was stopped in my tracks walking through my kitchen after an OK day, nothing good or bad necessarily happened that day, other than that I got to be with my parents which I never take for granted... being with them was the good part of that day. As I walked in to make dinner I was stopped in my tracks, I heard the words “what is the quality of life right now? What is the value?” This was a WORLD question, not just for myself. I felt the weight of the world hit me so hard I couldn’t walk. I though of us all coming home to our tiny little boxes. For those of us that have them, as grateful as we are, would throw them away to be anywhere else right now. These little bubbles were trapped in, that so many don’t even have to be safely trapped in. It goes both ways, THE GRASS IS ALWAYS GREENER. The word “privilege” to me and having grown up “privileged” was simply that I had the gift of a roof over my head. That I was fed by my loving parents, they would have given me anything to make sure there was a roof over my head. There are parents that are dying to give their children that and can’t. To try and imagine what people are really having to fight for through this time while we watch the world go by makes me feel helpless, hopeless. It absolutely crushes me, makes me unable to function some days of the week, but one thing my parents did teach me is that you can NEVER give up hope. You give up hope, your dead, that’s the truth. I had a dream that night about a lion protecting me from 3 tigers. That night I asked before bed “please guide me, let me be your vessel, show me what my purpose really is here, I can’t see it, show me, I feel lost.” This dream rocked my world, it’s more detailed but most importantly it was something that kept my soul hungry this week. Painting this image made my dream real. The strength within us is unimaginable. This image mirrored what’s inside of me right now. An emotional ball of sadness, darkness, anger. But really, a ball of light, curiosity, vibrance, courage, hope and LOVE. The unknown excites me, messages that come my way that don’t fully make sense make me feel alive, give me hope. Be gentle,find hope,love deeply, I love you
brianaevigan In memory of a year ago today I’ll just go ahead and repost our North Sumatra trip... I miss trekking for hours and finding wild orangutans. I miss the feeling behind spotting a tiger print and getting the thrill of what could be. I miss setting up camp to sleep under the stars in the deep forest and listening to the insects and animals go by. I’m missing all of the beautiful souls I got to meet and adventure with on this trip... but mostly I just miss being in the wild, the unknown of a day that can come your way in the forest, and walking along the rivers, listening to what it has to teach us. I look forward every day to being back. 🐘💨🧡 #adventure#leusure#sumatra#junglelife#takemeback#salma#keepthewildwild@outtherewithpaulhilton@paulhiltonphoto@timmycarhart@ridgeproduction
