The New Stage of my Career

 

Transforming the life experiences of the world-traveling into inspirational elements of the work

My extreme curiosity started at a very young age of mine. Wherever or whatever there is a new place or stuff, I just got to try and experience myself.
In early 2012, a sudden thought came to me out of nowhere---Moving to New York---and I DID! With not much money and without any specific reason, I literally moved there by the end of 2012. I didn’t even know why I should make such a decision like this, perhaps, I was just answering the inner callings from my soul. As my life after moving to New York? Wonderful! There is too much to talk about so I will describe them in another series.

In 2014, I considered that basically, I had collected pretty much about New York, so I applied for a language school in Milan. With the admission and the scholarships, my life in Europe successfully began. Most importantly, thanks to the convenient European railway, my horizon was massively broadened up by the end of 2015, because I was able to explore other cities instead of staying in Milan every day.

Traveling alone

And that was the case, my solo traveling made my “physical” and “mental” world unlimited. I often checked the map and pinned a place, then I was there. After gaining all of these splendid experiences in life, I started to realize that everything just happened so naturally and it was totally not difficult or dangerous as I originally pictured.

Since the end of 2015, I have visited so many beautiful places: Rome, Venice, Turin, Florence, Parma, Lake Como, Paris, Pisa, Lake Lecco, Cremona, London (for two months), Oxford, Stone Henge, Bath, Windsor Castle, Edinburgh, and back to New York three times. And also Los Angeles, Berlin, Leipzig, Dresden, Prague, Budapest, Rome again to perform my album, Siena, Luca, Montréal, San Francisco, Reykjavik, Vienna (twice), Dublin, Amsterdam, Nice, Monaco, and the second and third time in Paris.

There are deeper meanings in solo traveling. It was like “Life training courses” over and over again rather than just sightseeing tours. After visiting countless aesthetic and gorgeous places like palaces, churches and museums, these exquisite, elegant and unique works just omni-directionally fulfilled my cravings, thirst, and passion for art. Those spiritual and divinely masterpieces could always find a way to pound my soul. Nevertheless, the touches and vibrations also significantly imprinted in my body, so that I could utilize them and blend those strong emotions into my musical creations.

I also found and believed that…external traveling would always meet the needs of inner traveling.

A few years ago, what prompted me to advance was the enthusiasm for exploring the world and discovering more possibilities. Fortunately, I used the way to break through and escalate myself. However, as my mind, vision, and thinking patterns continue to expand, I have become an updated and better version of myself.

Started from this year, with all the harvest, I found an inner voice guiding me and I knew that it was time to settle everything down and put my past experience into the work, regardless gained from solo-traveling or those newly-acquired abilities, and continue to generate more creations, firmly and steadily embrace the next level of self-realization!


 

職涯新階段

 

將環遊世界的生活經歷,轉化為作品的靈感元素

 

從小我就是個好奇寶寶,哪裡都想去,去看看、經歷一下、感受一下。
2012年初,“ 搬去紐約” 一個突如其來的念頭,這完全是個天外飛來一筆的想法,我都搞不清楚為什麼,應該是靈魂想要經歷吧! 而我也真的在 2012 年底搬去了紐約。沒準備很多錢,不知道去了要做什麼,反正去了再說。關於紐約的生活,實在太精彩了,我得另外寫一篇。2014年,覺得在紐約的經驗搜集的差不多了,進而想體驗歐洲,順利申請到語文學校獎學金而搬去米蘭。2015 年底,原本只是覺得在每天待在米蘭無聊,既然歐洲鐵路超方便,那週末不如就到別的城市走走。

一個人旅行

 

就這樣,開始了我一個人旅行的生活。我的生活方式徹底被擴張、完全被擴展,世界變得沒有限制,(因為心裡預設的限制被打開了)常常打開地圖看要去哪,接著,我人就到那兒了。做了才知道,根本沒有想像中的困難或危險,反而覺得很自然。

從2015年底至今,我一個人去了羅馬威尼斯杜林佛羅倫斯帕爾馬科摩湖巴黎比薩萊科湖克雷蒙納倫敦(兩個月)、牛津巴斯史前巨石陣溫莎城堡愛丁堡、回去紐約三次、洛杉磯柏林萊比錫德勒斯登布拉格布達佩斯、去羅馬表演宣傳新專輯、席安那路卡舊金山蒙特婁雷克雅維克維也納都柏林阿姆斯特丹尼斯摩納哥、第二、三次巴黎

一個人旅行並不只是表面的觀光旅遊,其實有著更深層的含義,是一次又一次的 “人生訓練營”。

在走訪無數華美絕倫的皇宮、以及參觀過無數嘆為觀止的教堂與博物館後,這些精雕細琢的美感、高雅別緻的作品、這些藝術大師透過作品所傳遞的精神,已大大飽足了我這好奇靈魂所需的滋養,我牢牢的記著每一次的感動與震撼,因為要刻印在我的靈魂裡,才能自然地流瀉於作品、琴聲、歌聲裡。

我發現也深信... 外在旅行,永遠因應內在旅行的需要

 

前幾年,促使我前進的,正是那股探索世界、探索自己更多可能性的熱情。很幸運,我能用這樣的方式進行內在成長與跳脫。
隨著心智、眼界、思考格局不斷不斷地擴展,我變成了更新後的版本。
而今年開始,帶著滿滿的收穫,心底的聲音告訴我,是時候靜下來,把從世界各地學來的收穫與培養的能力,放進工作中,創作更多作品,堅定地踏向下一步的自我實現!
