It would seem that there are two kinds of happiness: [first] the happiness that arises from the enjoyment of pleasant experiences, when the content of our life is unfolding a way that pleases us; and [second] the happiness that is our capacity to be free, regardless of the content of our life experience. The former is happiness-with-a-cause; the latter a kind of causeless (or “eternal”) happiness. The former we work to gain and possess (and hence can also lose); the latter is simply who we are, in the core of our being…
Much of what we call “suffering” is intimately related to our unskillful (i.e. unconscious) pursuit of [the first] happiness… Ironic. The good news is that we can, indeed, have our cake and eat it too. How does this work? By skillfully harnessing our desire for [the first kind of happiness] – so that the energy thus generated becomes a means for awakening [the second kind of happiness]. [It is] kind of like the “lead plane” which pulls a glider along, until it has found its own groove – and can sail along freely, on the currents of air.

In old versions she had different names as I develop her character: Enka Phoenix / Yanhua Phoenix / Aeon Xing and more. Her former color schemes are red-white-black. It has been a long way and she is now a totally different character.
This is an amazing design that combines traditional and cyber aesthetics perfectly! It’s just so neat. o.o
Monday Late Night Livestream!
Going to work on stuff I need to catch up on and finish! Got some new equipment to play around with. Maybe some random / concept work!
Stream is on! o.o!
Been working on this picture for over a year. Keep forgetting it’s there but I wanted to draw Di and I remembered it suddenly.
Was going to have gloves originally (she tends to have these ornate evening gloves) but I liked the bare skin look for this one better. (I forgot.)
Just a little something for myself.
