Still Hungry

1 min read

“Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.” Genesis 3:7 NIV

The very first thing that happened the moment they went their own way was a sudden realization of their deficiencies. The Bible says their eyes “were opened”, but this wasn’t an optometrist observation, but an existential rude awakening.: the person next to me needs to be “covered”, and so do I. 

I see this reality on a daily basis, both in individual sessions and couples counseling. Hyper awareness of oneself leads to self consciousness and excessive focus on others leads to seeing all the ways they aren’t what they should be. 

The tree of knowledge of good and evil leaves us hungrier than when we were before. The is not to grow our belly and then criticize ourselves/others, but to be content with self and the world.   

My name is Arturo and I am loved by God and in response to that I best serve others by adding VALUE to their lives. My goal is to enrich lives, relationships, and communities.
From an artistic standpoint I’m a visual communicator and via the use of photography I seek promote beauty, concepts, and messages. Spiritually speaking I've served as a chaplain at a addiction/recovery rehabilitation center, and before that as a youth pastor, missionary, and Young Life/Club Beyond staff for many years here in the USA and abroad.
On the mental health side I currently serve as a life coach, certified addiction recovery specialist, and marriage and family counselor.
