Our Beautiful Life

by - March 18, 2018



Life is beautiful but the one thing we've had drilled into our heads about beauty is the subjective nature of it, i.e., "Beauty is in the eyes of its beholder." Personally, what I get from this is, there is beauty in every single thing, in some way or the other, but only some people will be able to appreciate certain things. Regardless, perspective is not indicative of quality but rather is a simple show of preferences.

For instance, have you ever been to a museum and seen a work of art and thought: Wow, this is trash! Why is this here? What does this even mean? I just don't get it! Well, me too.  Several times. Yet, regardless of my own outlook on it, there it is, proudly on display for the world to see. In fact, it's hung in the most sacred place for this line of work, in a museum, where only the best of the best are housed, so priceless and coveted it cannot be owned by anyone else, simply admired (or scrutinized).

This piece of art is much like each of our lives. We are all artists.  What we make of our lives is our masterpiece and the museum is a symbol of our success, our legacy, our beautiful life.

No matter what we do, we will always have admirers or naysayers, but their opinions will neither add nor detract from the value of what we create.

Just like the painting in the museum,  the manifestation of our inner thoughts needs only to be meaningful to us, the creator. Whether or not people "get it" should never stop you from creating it. To a random onlooker it might seem absurd, just random strokes that wildly cover a canvas but for you, the artist, it is your story. It all started as a blank canvas but you had a vision of what it could be and you worked tirelessly, creatively, faithfully and passionately at it until it became your version of beautiful. And that's it. That is all it needs to be, YOUR VISION.

No matter what we want to become we must first hire vision. As a visionary, you're curating your life.  You set the standards for the quality of life you want to live. It means you're pulling yourself into the future and taking control of your life at that moment. By dreaming up what that looks like, you will in effect, create the condition to live your truth, your beautiful life.

That's why we've been told time and time again to:
“Watch your thoughts, they become words. Watch your words, they become actions. Watch your actions, they become habits. Watch your habits, they become character. Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.”
Our greatest work is inside of our heads waiting for us to put the right energy behind it. Our beautiful life is a thought, an idea, a vision waiting to be had. Doris E Thorn wrote in her book, Casting Light on the Mystery of God in You, that, "We have a conscious mind and a subconscious mind. Every thought we think- good or bad,  positive or negative- go into our subconscious, where it creates a condition. That condition reflects our thoughts - good or bad- and in turn creates a similar condition in our bodies, soul and our environment. We are constantly creating by our thinking. In fact, we are co-creators with God, and we have been so all of our lives."

That's exactly what the character Cobb played by Leonardo Dicaprio in the movie Inception means when he said that "An idea is like a virus. Resilient. Highly contagious. And even the smallest seed of an idea can grow. It can grow to define or destroy you."

So what are you creating? How do you want the world to hear about you or rather how will the world experience your legacy? What seeds are you planting in your head?

Whatever it is, know that you are entitled to your version of a beautiful life. You were born with the right to create freely, passionately and authentically in a way that conveys your truth as you see fit to share. You are in control. You are the master of your vision. As you create your only responsibility is to your self. Define what makes a life worth living for yourselves, in a way that feeds your souls and happiness.

Dream wildly without limitations and as soon as those dreams feel even remotely accessible start conjuring new ideas and building on your vision. Worry not about the how or the means that will take you there. Believe it is possible and you're already on your way. For reassurance sake, the famous and very brilliant Brazillian writer Paulo Coelho so graciously asserted that "when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.' Would Uncle Paulo ever lie to you?

Life is beautiful. Believe It. Claim It. Now It's YOURS.

until next time......
