YOU ARE THE ARTIST

§ February 20th, 2010 § Filed under Chapter 70: You Are The Artist § Tagged , , , , , § No Comments

Prepare for the burst. As you reach your state of True Being you will feel a burst of creative energy. Your glow will shine back from all around you. You may be surprised at what good and beautiful things appear before you. I'll bet you didn't know you had it in you. But look there; you do.

My Spirit Guide, See Do, explained to me the ultimate power behind our small tool. Early on, in Chapter 20, he explained that the purpose of life is “to work with a small tool to build a great castle.” The small tool is our spirit-conscious-self connection. The great castle is a co-perceived, living world of harmony and justice.

And we will get there by painting. And sculpting. Creating our world. You see, that’s what we are doing anyway and all the time. As we live, or perceive our living, along this continuous arrow of Time, we are all, each and every one of us, painting or creating the temporal reality we are experiencing.

It flows out of our being and onto the vast canvas of our integrated perceptions. And we are all and each of us – the artist.

There is only one thing. There is only one spirit fabric. All of us are connected. And an energy of great truth runs through us, just behind our individual conscious-self. Our inner self, our inner being, needs only to connect with our individual point on the spirit fabric that is our soul. Once we can dispense with all the negative self-ideas, the false limitations, the untruths, the prejudices, the painful self-guilt and admonitions, we can reach out and make the connection that is waiting within each of us.

We can see our own inner truth. We can find our ideals and passions and reach across the divide and fully embrace them within our conscious-self. We can integrate the conscious-self with the spirit-soul. We can live in the glow of our inner spiritual truth and passion. We can live in True Being.

Then we can paint.

With the glow of True Being we can see our glow move out into the world. Others will feel it and respond. The world can seem to come to you. As the self-soul integrated artist painting your world, you can feel like you are right at the edge of creation, at the edge of now, feeling it come into being off the tip of your brush.

You may want to laugh in response to the new beauty you are coming to appreciate. The world will seem new. Every stimulus will be fresh and new and speaking to you. And speaking truth. What better response than laughter?

But this is just the beginning.

Now you will want to ask for a specific gift or presence or action within your world. From your immediate now, living in True Being, there is no reason to be afraid. Ask your spirit, your soul, the whole spirit fabric, the one thing. Ask for what you most desire in truth. Ask from within True Being, from within the truth of your spirit. Call it in.

You will be surprised at the answer. If you have found True Being, it will come.

Here is the true power of the artist to create a thing of beauty, a thing of “more than ordinary significance.” Here is the power of True Being. Here is the ability to affect events. To see a better world unfold to your deepest desires.

Your soul, in alignment with your conscious-self, has the ability to do many things, great and small. Here is the small tool. And with it, you can begin to build the great castle.

You are the artist. You have the full palette and creative energy inside you to create great things. The world is waiting for you to bring it forward.

You have the truth within you. Paint it on the world.

REALITY AS ART

§ February 17th, 2010 § Filed under Chapter 69: Reality As Art § Tagged , , § No Comments

Reality is art. Everywhere there is something beautiful. Begin to see the beauty all around. Slow down. Change your perspective. Your world is speaking to you. Please be an appreciative audience.

           What is art? I didn’t ask See Do this. Perhaps I should have.

            Wikipedia’s article begins with “Art is the process or product of deliberately arranging elements in a way that appeals to the senses or the emotions.” I might add “–and to the spirit.”

           Dictionary.com begins with “1. the quality, production, expression, or realm, according to aesthetic principles, of what is beautiful, appealing, or of more than ordinary significance.”

            I think you see where this is going. We are each painting or creating this right now, complete with a sense of uniform time passage and panoply of perfectly integrated memories. It is driven from within each of us by our spirit energy. This energy flows out of us through the resonant energies of the conscious-self to form reflected stimuli that flow back through our perceptual keyhole to be re-integrated into a cohesive view that becomes our immediate temporal reality.

            But it is impossible to deny, there is something inside us, inside every one of us – even the least spiritually connected – that wants it to be good. There is something that wants it to be in tune with a (perhaps a very personal) idea of what is appealing, attractive, even beautiful. We wish for it and respond positively when we find it.

            Inside each of us is our spirit-truth. This truth, this essence, is the force which strives to paint the world in a fuller glory. Between palette and canvas is your conscious-self. And it is a two-way street. As your inner energies flow out, they are refracted through the lens of your conscious-self’s resonant energy. There may be many internal obstacles, pre-conceived notions, wrong-headed ideas, self-limitations and unforgiven self-admonitions that bend the inner truth into a less than beautiful vision of now.

            And as you receive the reflected stimuli back into your conscious world view, there may be many miss-applied interpretations, prejudices and stereotyped and pre-packaged bad definitions that create an interpretation of reality that takes it even further from beautiful.

            The spirit of truth inside you wants to paint a world that is beautiful. It throws out its infinite energies for you to perceive. All around you is an infinite display of your own soul’s doing. No matter your outlook, the spirit will find a way to slip in some beauty for you.

           Look at the world. There is something beautiful to see, to smell, to taste, to touch, to hear. You may have to look for it. You may have to change your style of looking. You will need to dispense with all automatic negative judgement and prejudice.

           You will need to begin again, like a child, to see the world as an infinitely unfolding work of art. What did it say? “…a quality…of expression…that is of more than ordinary significance.”

           Look at the world you are in. Look at your right now. And know that this moment is of much more than ordinary significance. And this moment. And this.

           The reality you are in is an expression of truth and it is trying to speak to you. It is built on a framework of spiritual beauty. It carries a message from within your spirit. Try and see it. Try and hear it. This vast work of art is for you alone. This perspective you enjoy belongs to no one else. No one sees exactly what you see. This unique set of perceptual stimuli are for you. They form a special, significant message addressed to you alone.

           By any definition, it is art. You now must try and learn to appreciate its beauty, its message, its implication.

           Take a step closer to understanding your own truth, your own passion. Your canvas awaits.
