Listen to your inner voice – always!

Every now and then I read something about ”daily wisdom” . I have a few of them. E.g. books, which provide a short philosophical text every day. Another book contains a masonic meditation every day, based on the bible. As I said: not every day I look into each of these books. I lack the discipline to. Or, as I put it to myself: the time 😉 Anyway. These days I found a great paragraph in the book with the masonic meditations, talking about discipline. At this point a nice hint from the universe. And it was about the inner voice. This meditation spoke to me somehow from the heart, so I want to summarize it here today.

The meditation was introduced with a paragraph from the prophet Haggai:

But now, Zerubbabel, be of good cheer, says the LORD; be of good cheer, Yeshua, you son of Jehozadak, you high priest! Be of good cheer, all the people of the land, says the LORD, and work! For I am with you, says the LORD of hosts. Haggai 2:4

The meditation that follows is about one important thing, a core skill, so to speak, that we should learn: discipline. No, not discipline to always do our daily tasks well.

But just the discipline to listen to our inner voice. Not just to perceive this inner voice.

But the discipline to listen to this voice. To act according to it. Out of a sense of deep understanding. Out of a trust to do the right thing.

This discipline of trusting our inner voice is something we have to learn. Because it is quite difficult to trust it. And this trust is questioned again and again.

We cannot control how our outer world reacts to us, our thoughts and our actions. Some people therefore act in an adapted way: as it is expected from them. Or in a way that represents the easiest way for him. Possibly against what his inner voice tells him. And this leads, without wanting to start a psychological excursus, to conflicts. To inner conflicts. On the one hand, what the inner voice, the gut feeling says. On the other hand, what you do – because it is expected or it is the easiest way. And such conflicts are rarely healthy.

Better to learn to listen to your inner voice and do what your gut tells you to do. Disciplined. Always.

Because from this discipline a trust arises. A trust in your own inner voice. And in the fact that it tells you the right thing. It advises you to do the right thing. That it is simply the right thing to do if you follow your gut feeling, your inner voice.

With this trust, you can relax and be sure that you have done the right thing: our best.

Trust your inner voice – disciplined – always – and you will do the right thing: Your best!

Epson Semi Gloss

A great all-round paper, chosen for its photographic aesthetics, vibrant colour reproduction, high contrast and robust feel. Its semi gloss, flat surface lends the artwork a photographic feel, combined with the subtle painterly feel of a Giclée fine art print. Our most lightweight paper of all Giclées. The surface is resin coated making it our strongest paper.

Hahnemühle German Etching

This heavyweight paper has a slightly warm base tone and a strong mottled texture. It creates a print with strong colours and deep blacks that feel rich and high in contrast. This is due to the texture of the paper enabling it to hold more ink and capture the light. The German Etching is one of our heavier weight Giclée art printing papers. With its weight and strong texture this paper gives an artwork a handmade crafted feel. Hahnemüle German Etching is a robust Giclée paper, meaning it doesn’t tend to fray as much at the edges.

Hahnemühle Photorag

The super matt finish of Hahnemüle Photorag makes this paper one of our most popular papers amongst artists, illustrators & photographers alike. The paper gives muted blacks with even colour reproduction, and excellent detail. The surface has minimal texture with a chalky smooth cotton feel which creates smooth colour gradients. It has a delicate surface, so we recommend extra care when handling. Photorag is suitable for mounting but its cotton texture means edges can fray if not carefully handled.

Hahnemühle Pearl

Hahnemüle Pearl has a smooth orange peel texture and a bright neutral white base, it creates really natural black and white images and offers vibrant colour reproduction and great detail too. The paper is resin coated with a fibrous feel. The satin finish of the resin coating gives depth to the image which combined with the texture and vibrant colour reproduction give the image the feel of an oil painting. This is one of the most suitable of the Giclée Art Paper range for mounting

Hahnemühle Bamboo

Bamboo is the world’s first digital fine art inkjet paper made from bamboo fibres. Bamboo represents naturalness and resource-saving paper production. Particularly suitable for warm-toned colour and monochrome prints.Hahnemühle Bamboo is made from 90% Bamboo fibres and 10% cotton combining photography with environmental friendliness. This natural warm-toned, smooth surfaced and optical brightening agent free genuine art paper offers maximum ageing resistance. It guarantees an extremely large colour gamut and high colour density.

Canson Baryta

A pure white Baryta base paper with excellent black density, contrast and reproduction of detail. Great for high contrast images, as well as fluorescent and vivid colours. The Baryta base creates whiter whites and deeper blacks whilst the silky smooth reflective coating enhances the detail and definition of the images. We recommend care when handling the print as is a sensitive paper and we advise that you add a border to the image if you would like to have it mounted.

Canson Aquarelle

Canson Aquarelle Rag is another highly textured Giclée art paper in our range, offering strong reproduction of blacks and good colour intensity with a texture that holds the ink and catches the light. This Giclée paper has a white uncoated paper base, which together with the texture gives the artwork a lovely fine art reproduction feel. The texture is even more pronounced than Hahnemühle German Etching so if you are really looking for the craft feel, this is a great option. Like the German Etching, the Canson Aquarelle Rag is a robust paper that handles mounting well.

C Type Kodak Metallic

Kodak Metallic has a rich metallic base. The colours have a reflective, metallic and 3-dimensional feel. High mid-tones & highlights add luminosity & iridescence.

C Type Fuji Flex

Fuji Flex, a.k.a. super-gloss, has a plastic feel to the paper with a warm base colour and an ultra-high gloss finish, giving luxurious rich colours. Very high – deep blacks & high visual contrast.

C Type Fuji Gloss

Professional colour paper from the Fuji Crystal archive range with a gloss finish, which accentuates the colour to give a punchy, rich feel. Gives our image more contrast, glossiness and a punchier colour feel when compared to Fuji Matt, although it maintains tonal properties and accurate reproduction.

Fuji Crystal archive paper with a semi-matt finish. The paper is coated with a slightly stippled texture giving a very natural photographic finish with subtle colour.
