We as human beings tend to go through our daily lives without much consideration as to what it is where doing, and how we’re doing it. We simply take for granted as we wake up that: “this is going to be another day, and I will simply walk through it as all the other days I’ve walked through up to this point”. Though within this there is something important that is being forgotten. It’s actually not only important, it’s in-fact vital, it’s really the essence of what it means to live; and that is the principle of creation – the principle of bringing to life – to principle of determining ourselves, and our lives.
What is fascinating is that this principle of creation is always here regardless of whether we’re aware of it or not – but as a matter of fact we’re all creating our lives in real time, in every moment of breath, and we’re in-fact the determining point in our world, and our reality. I mean, this is absolutely fascinating – because in taking a look at us human beings, it’s like we’re totally oblivious of this fact, and we’re just walking around believing that life is happening to us, when in-fact it’s us that are happening as our own life. What I want to get to here is the simple realization that we’re all creators – thus we’re all artists, and within this it’s easy to see that living is an art form. And not just any art form – it’s THE art form; because when we become effective in this skill of creating our life as the piece of art it is, the rest of our lives will unfold and become so much more rewarding, and effective.
But, obviously, as I mentioned in the beginning, what we as human beings have yet to understand is that each breath that we take is in-fact a opportunity for us to create art, and not just any art, the perfect art, as the perfect living, as walking within and as a principle that is best for all, as give as you’d like to receive; I mean, this is in essence the choice that stand before is in every moment – the question: “What are you going to create? What type of artist will you be?” – and the only way to answer this question is through real living application, as a living physical decision that I create myself here in physical living to stand as an example of what is best for all.
And it’s fascinating that instead of us realizing this fact that art is not something separate from us, but that art is really every moment we have here with ourselves, we’ve made art to be these isolated incidents of painting, or doing some acting, or playing some music – but that is a very limited understanding of art, and when we limit art to only exist as these very few points we compromise the rest of our lives that should as a matter of integrity be masterpieces as perfect art that we’ve created with meticulous specificity, and inexhaustible dedication.
Consider for a moment that we as humans would in-fact do this, and make sure that our life, and our every breath is a work of art that gives life – what would be the outflow of this on an existential level? Would starvation exist? Would murder exist? Can any problem possibly remain a problem when we strive for perfection in every way? I mean, obviously not – and thus – are you ready to take on the responsibility of being a real artist? Because realize that for any change to take place in this world – individuals must change themselves – and to do this we require to make sure that our life is an art lived that is worthy of life.
