Collection: Seek Fulfillment

Collection: Seek Fulfillment

The short explanation of this shirt:

Meaning: Seek fulfillment over pleasure.

The eye: The eye at the center of the flower is used to illustrate the action of seeking.

The Purple Rose: In the middle of the floral arrangement, you will see a purple rose which represents fulfillment. Just as a rose bush is hardy and can last upwards of 15 years, so too can fulfillment.

The Blue Flower: The large blue flower, called a Touch-me-not (it’s a poisonous annual), represents pleasure. Just as annuals live a short life, dying every year, so too does pleasure.

The Tear: Once the blue flower dies, all that is left is a tear which represents the once romantic, short-lived, and unsatisfying past.

Colors:
Purple is the color of royalty and compassion.
Turquoise is the color of selfishness and personal benefit.

The in-depth explanation of this shirt:

Meaning: Seek fulfillment over pleasure.

The eye: The eye at the center of the flower is used to illustrate the action of seeking. We all make the conscious or unconscious decision to seek something in life. Whether that thing is happiness, prosperity, or even nothing, our energy will be expended on things we most desire.

The Purple Rose: In the middle of the floral arrangement, you will see a purple rose which represents fulfillment. Just as a rose bush is hardy and can last upwards of 15 years, so too can fulfillment. While difficult to cultivate, it sustains the peaks and valleys that life has to offer, entrusting one with a worthwhile outcome of life.

The Blue Flower: The large blue flower, called a Touch-me-not (it’s a poisonous annual), represents pleasure. Just as annuals live a short life, dying every year, so too does pleasure. While alluring and easily attainable, it is temporary and fleeting, leaving nothing but the thought of what could have been if contrasting actions had been taken.

The Tear: Once the blue flower dies, all that is left is a tear which represents the once romantic, short-lived, and unsatisfying past.

Colors:
Purple is the color of royalty and compassion.
Turquoise is the color of selfishness and personal benefit.

Conclusion: In the end, we are all human. We will have times where we seek pleasure, and times where we desire only fulfillment. Each experience we have had has grown us into the person we are today. In the same way, all the adventures we have yet to undergo will do the same for our future selves. Choosing to push through each moment with fulfillment in our minds will lead to a life worthy of living, even when things don’t go our way. I urge each of you to question how this way of living can be applied to your life.
