IAM delighted to welcome the Divine and Magnificent writer and artist, Anita Shree as my Guest Blogger Feature today and share with you all, her gentle self, words and creations that she has birthed and continues to nurture… inspiring us all from ‘the future’ in her home Kuala Lumpa, Malaysia. Anita’s sense of humour and inner wisdom shines brightly, even if she doesn’t quite want to believe it herself… her friends and I know for sure it will definitely get her everywhere.
Anita loves to write and draw… and during the last 8 years she has shifted her focus from playing a major part in the medical world to putting her two loves of writing and drawing together and creating her business ‘Artful Scribe’. Sharing her joy playing with patterns, shapes and colours to help herself and others journey within self and think and act beyond the ‘limitation of the Human box’ that we all seem only too eager to remain in. Anita didn’t give up the medical world completely, she shares her wisdom as a freelance medical writer and helps Humanity bring the outer and inner worlds together.
Not so long ago, Anita created a Mandela colouring book that she writes about in her blog post Mandela colouring book and her most recent Mandela creation is ‘Sunlight’. You can watch her creating it here.
I just loved reading Anita’s last blog post @ Heartsong about the conclusion she came to at the end of her 2017 journey and has helped her focus on her intention for 2018.
What I know is right in front of my nose. Everything else, I do not know. It’s just the conjecture of my mind. Drama and fear which are not real. Illusions of sorts.
So, I focus on what I do know NOW. And I use my energies to CREATE abundance in wealth and health. Healthy body, mind, emotions and spirit.
I focus my attention to bring in the abundance of life to me. Because I make a choice. My choice is firm. My choice is to attract only the awesome and good things. I TRUST.
Because really, nothing else is certain is it? So why create things I don’t want? The past is the past. I can’t do anything about it now. It’s gone. Only NOW exists, right?
Anita shares her feelings on Consciousness VS Artificial Intelligence…
In her book, “The Soul Loves The Truth”, Denise Linn recounts her experience with modern medicines. As an alternative health and natural living advocate she used to shun pills. However, she soon came to realize that “Spirit can exist in human-made things as well”. She concludes by stating that medication used responsibly can be “just as much a gift from God as clouds, sunsets and rainbows”.
On a more personal note, and one that actually deals with “artificial intelligence” would be the time I was creating my very first colouring book at the end of 2017. These mandalas were hand-drawn and then scanned before the designer could lay them out. Yes, I used a software program to “enhance” the line drawing because scanning these dulled them. The designer got back to me asking if I wanted her to refine the lines in the drawings. I had a decision to make. Did I want to alter these mandalas to make them look perfect or should I allow them to be what they were?
You know, in the end, it wasn’t a very hard decision to make. I decided to go with leaving them be. With some lines a little squiggly, some patterns not perfectly matching the others of its kind.
Just as Denise Linn understood, I too feel that a world with beings that are more conscious does not mean that we can’t have artificial intelligence. Just as how humans are meant to live with nature, we can be conscious beings and live with artificial intelligence, in balance.
When I was much younger, and many years ago, artificial intelligence was imagined as robots with human likeness and computers that talked. Now, those are either with us or in the very, very near future. A lot of these inventions have allowed the humans as a race to explore, to experience and to help those who are in need of some form of support. We just have to remind ourselves of the recently passed on Stephen Hawking. Without technology, his brilliant mind would have been silenced and I truly feel that the world would have been left a lot poorer if that had been the case.
Truly, we don’t really have to go too far to know how much artificial intelligence has seeped into our life. Programs that run Facebook and Google, the two most used platforms in the world are prime examples. Google is able to “predict” our search results, while Facebook…well, Facebook has managed to make our world a lot smaller than air travel has.
And then there are the gadgets and gizmos most all of us are attached to. Let’s be honest, a lot of us would feel quite “naked” if we didn’t have our hand phone with us!
I watched a movie called Surrogate, some years ago. It was a pretty cool movie. You think that this movie is about a murder investigation but about halfway through, the audience is introduced to the reality of the world this story is set in. It is the future and many, many people have chosen to live their life through virtual reality. They sit at home, eyes encased in these large virtual reality goggles, just like the virtual reality headpieces we have now. With some advanced form of technology groups of people create a “normal” world where everyone interacts, live lives and well…they live the life that they want, exactly like how they want it to be while in virtual reality.
Here is an interesting fact – it’s possible now to do exactly that. It’s as if the world of virtual reality and reality are becoming blurred progressively, each day. You know how ancient texts mention that this life we live, in this earthly plane is the maya? An illusion. Well, when you think about it, it’s as if we as a human race are so desperate to escape our life that we seem to be creating an illusion within an illusion.
A funny thought. There are some who believe only in what their five senses tell them. Their faith is in science and in data. If you were to tell them about maya, they would ask you for evidence that something like that could even be possible. And yet, science and technology has and continues to pave the way to show us that it is a possibility. I mean if it is possible for us to “live” short periods (and for gaming enthusiast – more than short periods of time) in a virtual reality, an illusion, then by inference can we not hypothesize that what we call reality may in fact be a virtual reality?
To me artificial intelligence and the rise of technology intrigue me. Not so much as to study it in depth, because I really suck at physics and mechanics and all that stuff, but just the concept of it all.
It also terrifies me.
It terrifies me because though there are times I feel encouraged by the actions and words of people who seem to be aware of a greater human potential in each of us, there is an equal opportunity to see the ugly side of humans.
It scares me when I see some who think or feel they have awakened or are more aware, but they spread their knowledge or information tinged with so much anger and fear.
It terrifies me because I honestly do not think that we as a race are mature enough to know how to handle such advanced technology.
It terrifies me because I see the destruction that “mere man” has caused this earth and yet we can be so arrogant as to think we are “developed”, “progressive”, “progressed”.
It scares me because though many have truly become aware/awakened/more conscious, there are still so many more who continue to live and thrive in fear.
It makes me wonder if the cycle of Atlantis is happening again. This time with a more immature and less tolerant, less intelligent, less compassionate race and this progress is happening at a heightened speed.
That our consciousness or the volume of consciousness focused on love and peace and understanding isn’t catching up; isn’t “there” yet.
The thing is, we can’t stop progress, and we don’t want to really stop it, because what is, is. If it is time, it will be and however much we push against it, we may just make a mess of it all.
I don’t know what the solution is, if any. What I do know is this. Those before us who have said that the only way to change is to look within, I believe it to be true for everything.
For me, it is to work on my fears. It’s either fear or love, everything else is but a child of one or the other. The more I work with my fears, to acknowledge them, to release them and invite the light of love, the more it shall generate a loving space for me and with that, an extension outwards.
I’m the owner of Artful Scribe. I’m a medical doctor who has always had an attraction toward the mystical, mythical and spiritual. I love colours and fell in love with mandalas and its creation since discovering it about 8 years ago. The written word was and I feel still is my preferred choice of communication. For some reason, what I want to say flows easily when I type (or write) the words instead of speaking them out.
I’m a daughter, a sister, an ex-wife, a friend, a doctor, a creator of mandalas and a writer who is constantly learning, shifting and growing to become the person my soul has intended for me in this lifetime.
