Being the Artist of Your Life
Ernest Holmes advises us to become artists in living, to live by inspiration to see the divine touch in everything. He wrote, “… make your work a prayer, your believing an act, your living an art.” When we take his advice we come to see that our life is a gift, an opportunity to bring our dreams into reality.
Deepak Chopra wrote, “when you discover your essential nature and know who you really are, in that knowing itself, is the ability to fulfill any dream you have because you are the eternal possibility, the immeasurable potential of all that was, is and will be.” Take a moment to re-read that quote, it is a powerful statement. It is telling us that we are powerful human beings. I think sometimes many of us forget that.
Along with that power comes a responsibility to use it wisely, because when we make choices we have to live with them. It is not easy to always make choices that are spiritually uplifting. Many of us come from dysfunctional families, and we have grown up with the scars of being told we were not enough, or being abused or we may carry a host of other unpleasant memories. But the fact is we are grown now and we must take responsibility for our lives. Playing the blame game doesn’t work.
In the book, Soul Prints, Marc Gaffney, says that God has placed a pen in our hands and we get to become the author and the hero of our life. He writes, that, “Every relationship, every residence, and every experience is part of the plot.” You and I get to choose if we will be a hero or a minor character in the drama. What determines it is how we live our daily life. We build our life one choice after another. As Alan Cohen writes, “Peace must come to those who ask for it. Strength must be given to those who claim it, and love must bring healing to all who open their arms to it. The time of awakening is at hand.”
