We go through so much in our experience of L.I.F.E. both good and bad. However, it is the bad times, the dark times, the times when we are really the lowest that we have the most difficult challenge overcoming. We allow these times to become so lodged in our minds that we place ourselves in the a complacent space where we are totally incapacitated from moving forward from the fear of the loss and pain we have experienced. We forget that we are here to live L.I.F.E. and that a negative experience is there merely to teach us the Art of Living.
- The expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture,…: “the art of the Renaissance”
- Works produced by such skill and imagination.
- craft – skill – artifice – science – workmanship – knack
Art has been typically defined as something that we create, like painting or sculpture or even literature. You are a work of God. You were handcrafted with precision and skill of the original master craftsman and created in that image and likeness. Thus, you are here explicitly to craft your L.I.F.E. using the Divine Spiritual tools you were born with to create whatever experience you may choose to experience. So when you are going through a bad time and things don’t seem to be working out the way you want them too, you are simply in the designing process of creating your own masterpiece… which is your L.I.F.E.
You cannot get stuck and bogged down by the bad times. They are simply areas that need improvement in your design. If you built a chair with only two legs it could not stand. This would be a problem to figure out. You would work at it until you came up with the answer to put two more legs on your chair so that it will stand. The problem had a solution, you simply had to sit and figure it out. Getting stuck in your stuff means you have to figure something out because your design is flawed.
You are the master craftsman of the L.I.F.E. that Spirit gave you. You are the great artist, the greatest architect, that has the opportunity to create the art of living in your own L.I.F.E. If you continue to stay stuck in the bad times, you have given up on your creation. You can only create by moving forward to complete the design.
If you are an artist you will have some bad days. You may cut your finger and it bleed all over your artwork. You may drop the paint and it be the last dye lot available that you actually need. You may chisel to hard and totally destroy the marble you are carving and have to come up with a new concept to use the marble over throwing it away. There are so many tangible problems that an artist, architect, inventor or craftsman experience when they are creating the perfect piece. You are the perfect piece. You have to continue to mold, paint and design your L.I.F.E. to be what you want it to be. You cannot quit. If you do you will never achieve the art of living and living well.
You are a great work of art, perfect in every measure. You have every tool necessary to create whatever you desire on your canvass of L.I.F.E. You are here to create, to create your L.I.F.E. You are the master craftsman, the great artist of your own experience. You are here to practice and perfect the Art of Living.
