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.

FIRST CREATE THEN PERCEIVE

§ January 23rd, 2010 § Filed under Chapter 62: First Create Then Perceive § Tagged , , , , , , § No Comments

In a flash of perception you will see that your world flows from within. You will be riding the wave of creative energy that paints the fantastic tapestry we call temporal reality.

           According to the lessons I received from my Spirit Guide, See Do, the world around us resonates from within us. According to See Do, the world we perceive is an expression of the “one thing” painting out through the brush of our spirit. “Our” spirit being the collective spirit of every soul in this world.

            The individual spirit or soul within us may be in contact with, or in tune with, our conscious sense of self to a greater or lesser degree. When we come to embrace a sense of our inner spirit, and to develop the line of contact, we can begin to understand our place in the existence of this world that we perceive.

            With work, we can clear away the internal obstacles that hold us apart from our creative spirit. With work we can truly become one with this spirit and begin to manifest our True Being in the world. We can forgive ourselves all past transgressions great and small and come to truly love our own being. We can come to be that being that we can most love and honor. We can see our love flowing out into the world and we can see like and loving spirits attracted to our glow.

            It may be easy. Or it may take time. But along the way you will start to see the walls begin to break down between what is inside you and what you may currently perceive as outside you. As your deeper conscious self comes into synchrony with your inner spirit, you will begin to see the resonances within you appearing in the outer world that you perceive.

            You may feel a harmony with the world, with life and with other spirits. At first, it may be fleeting, seen only in short glimpses. You will come to see that you and every soul around you are all part of the same expression. This should give rise to a great sense of compassion. And initially all of this may be difficult to hold on to. But try and build around the state of True Being within you.

            In a flash of perception, you will see that your world flows from within. From within the “one thing” that is inside of you – that is inside all of us. In this state you will be riding atop the wave of creative energy that gives you this fantastic tapestry of perception and memory that we call temporal reality. In this moment, you will perceive the fresh, new resonance of each perfect, jewel moment of time like you are experiencing it all for the very first time. And you will feel the most intimate of connections between those external perceptions and the resonance of your inner spirit.

            Everything seems new, like you’ve never walked outside before, never smelled the air, never heard the city’s sounds. This is perfect perception of the now. And it is as close as you can get to oneness with the world. It is as close as you can get to the true resonance of all things.

            Here is the true beauty of your instruments of perception and conscious awareness. You are able to perceive and construct a world of incredible detail and interlocking beauty. There are patterns and echoes of patterns that allow your consciousness to construct and hold a whole and complete world-view, a reality that is dazzling. Opening your perceptions and aligning your spirit with the resonances around you can be overwhelming.

           The complexity of each moment and its perfection is hard to conceive of. There may be times when you’ll want to back away. But come back. Please rise to the occasion. You will be starting to master this small tool of ours – our spirit’s ability to glow out and be one with the resonances and energies of what we perceive.

           It is all coming out of you after all.

           There is only one thing. You will come to nod at the thought, as you now feel your presence out in the world right at the moment of perception. You will feel that you are there, just in front of your physical self, almost but not quite, predicting what you are seeing, hearing, feeling. You will be riding the wave of creativity that pours out of the one thing through you – straight into your perceptions of what we call this temporal reality.

           Try and stay on that wave. I promise you will love the ride.
