Fragments from imaginary dialogues
“You’ve undoubtedly heard the words ‘The Art of Living’ many times.”
“For a long time I read the words without grasping the meaning [<link; medium length].
To really grasp the meaning is to LIVE it.
I call this ‘lived-understanding‘.
To really grasp the meaning is to BECOME the Artist you were always meant to be.
When you do, your WHOLE LIFE becomes your canvas, a fundamental means of self-expression.
It’s hard to convey how profound that is.
There isn’t ANYTHING that isn’t your Art.
From the Inner Realm to the Outer, from the personal to the interpersonal. Body, Mind, Spirit, EVERYTHING is your Art.
And your Art is SACRED.
You shape it moment by precious moment, with every breath, with every micro-choice you make.
To use a metaphor, think of a picture on your computer. When you zoom all the way in, what do you see?”
“That’s what your life looks like at the micro-level.
As the Artist, you must have the Vision to SEE the Macro in the Micro [<link; medium], to see the zoomed-out picture in the pixel of the moment.”
