Bring positive energy into your space with this dynamic canvas print! Discover all of the embedded artifacts, color depth and many layers each time you view it (see details below). This piece is inspired by the iconic landscapes of New York City, and features Jocelyn's all-time favorite quote from Paulo Coelho's book The Alchemist. In the book, a King tells a boy named Santiago that there is one great truth on this planet, "Whoever you are, or whatever it is that you do, when you really want something, it's because that desire originated in the Soul of the Universe". The Soul of the World is nourished by people's happiness!
In Jocelyn's entire Life, and especially during her art exhibitions in New York City, she has seen and experienced first-hand that those wise words by the old King in the Alchemist - is, in fact, so true: When you really want something, the Universe conspires to work in your favor!
A variant of this quote has also become attributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson, "Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen." This is how the Law of Attraction works! Trust it! When you know what you really want in Life everything becomes clear and can be made possible. So do not be afraid to Dream, yearn for everything you would like to see happen in your Life, and do not delay in following your Heart! Then, you shall see the mysterious forces by the Universe (God) take care of all of the details and timing - to help you in finding your True North and realizing your destiny! Carpe Diem!
