She was devastated and her emotions were reflected in this painting. She drew two identical Fridas, but with different personalities. Their hearts are exposed over their clothing, and there is a thin vein passing through them both, uniting them. Victorian Frida holds surgical scissors that cut the vein in her lap, and the blood spills on her white dress. Frida was experiencing real sorrow, the kind of sorrow that made her feel she could bleed from the pain.
Both women are holding hands as if the artist Dies Irae - Various - 200 Years Of Music At Versailles: A Journey To The Heart Of French Baroque she was the only person who understood her, loved her, and could help her to move on. Such motivations do not normally emanate from pain free lives. When we have experienced profound pain we genuinely develop more compassion and empathy, and are probably more willing to help alleviate suffering if we come across someone going through a similar situation.
Pain is a powerful motivator: it can spur us into action, prompt us to change course, widen our perception, and in many cases, make us more accepting and less judgmental and align us to a meaningful purpose.
For me, intense pain formed the bedrock of my determination to follow my dreams and made me a stronger, more resilient person. I have taken the gems no pun intended! There was a time in my life when I considered making an early exit from existence, but fortunately I decided against that idea. My love for my family spurred me to turn my life around. One day at a time. It has been said that suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.
Sadly, not every one can get past their pain. The other day I was reading an email from Vishen Lakhiani, the founder of Mindvalleytelling a very personal story about how a painful experience became the catalyst for the values he lives by.
But that was the situation I was placed in while living in America. And this was part of global politics. But boy was it painful…. I had lived in America for a decade and it was a place I had called home. My wife from Estonia and I lived in New York.
This was our home and I wanted my son born as an American. But then — one day in arriving at JFK airport I was taken into a special room and told that I could no longer travel as freely.
I had been added to an early version of the same Muslim-watchlist that Trump has been recently pushing for. I could no longer board flights or get off a plane without enduring 2 to 3 hrs in interviews in tiny rooms at the limited airports I was allowed to fly from.
Worse, I was expected to report to the government every 28 days. Interrogated for hours, get my picture taken, and have my credit card purchases scrutinized. Sometimes after waiting in line for up to 4 hours. And I had to repeat this. Waiting 4 hours in the cold New York weather every 28 days just to be subjected to a really degrading process was something I could only tolerate for so long. In the end, in the then-new President Obama ruled the whole dumb process unconstitutional and this Bush-era regulation was tossed into the garbage bin.
Unity is the idea that we align not with our country, our flag, our religion, or our ethnicity first — but that we align first and foremost with humanity as a whole. My kids are half-Indian and half-white. You know what that means? It means they look middle-eastern. For example, our Dies Irae - Various - 200 Years Of Music At Versailles: A Journey To The Heart Of French Baroque typically welcome people from 40 different countries.
Our team of people now come from 49 countries. And we make effort to represent the under-represented. Our courses feature people of all ethnicities and sexual orientations. I could lost my business. I guess that happens to many people.
But if I lost my stand. And my stand is Unity. I would not be Vishen Lakhiani. Everything I do, including Mindvalley, is designed to bring unity to the human race.
Nowhere is the transformative quality of pain more evident, accessible and Dies Irae - Various - 200 Years Of Music At Versailles: A Journey To The Heart Of French Baroque than in the experience of listening to, performing and writing music.

All types of music fulfill this role for people. Some prefer rock, pop, country, jazz, tango, rap, heavy metal, dance anthems, not forgetting the more established and earlier types such as romantic, classical and baroque. I find my mood and activity selects the music, but the kind that reaches the parts others cannot is — surprise, surprise — classical music.
I have included a few examples of pieces that continue to resonate with audiences centuries later, due to the emotion that was fundamental to their creation. It seems many of the most loved and enduring musical works were hammered out on the anvil of pain…. It connects me to the composer, to myself and to humanity.
