Drawn with 0.5 mechanical pencil, size 1 paintbrush, white Copic ink, black prisma felt tip pens. Brought in to Photoshop CS6 and spruced up effects and shininess ^^

During these past few years, I've worked on my patience and mindfulness. I started seeing my brain as a computer - the mind is the filter and I, my consciousness, am the observer/user. My faulty computer (brain) gives out bad data and the filter (mind) processes them as awful, horrible things but I (the observer) can choose whether to react to it or not. It's not an easy way to think and definitely doesn't work out all the time but it's helped keep me a little calmer and more sane these past few years. :)

I'm glad to see something from you again! :love:

I like your way of thinking, I should apply it to myself. I suffer from social and generalized anxiety, and my psychologist actually gave me a similar comparation about seeing the brain as a computer which takes negative or positive input, giving the respective results. I'm a programmer and even like that I didn't understand it so well as now that I've read your explanation. :D So thank you for sharing, both the art and the reflection. :love: :hug:
