Are You Creating a Masterpiece?

Life is a huge canvas onto which we can throw as much paint as we wish. A divine gift is the power to create whatever we want. It’s woven into the fabric of our being. Since we’re hardwired to create, we hold the brush with which to design the life we choose.

Are you creating a masterpiece? Or are you painting by numbers, or connecting haphazard dots? Perhaps you’re like many people who sleepwalk right past their canvas. One day you may find it filled with graffiti or a Dorian Gray!

How have we lost sight of our gift? Despite the diversity of human circumstances the reasons are simple. It’s the search for happiness through others and things, which is driven by the ego’s ruthless fixation with fear and desire.

Combined with the belief that we are no more than our story, we’re led into the descent of deep forgetfulness. Here we cannot touch our divine gifts, nor connect with the essence of who we truly are—no wonder often the life we end up with is not the one we would have consciously chosen!

It’s never too late to pick up the brush! Although we cannot recreate the past and start a new beginning, we can start to create a new ending. Turn the canvas away from the world and face it inward.

Here you’ll find your muse. Invoke her with stillness, love and beauty. Observe the freedom and passion with which she unleashes the wings of your dreams. Watch her create a masterpiece with the heartbeat of your soul.

Henry Ward Beecher proclaimed, “Every artist dips his brush into his own soul and paints his own nature into his pictures.” Life is not a dress rehearsal, so heed Oscar Wilde’s words: “I put all my genius into my life; I put only my talent into my works.”
