Life is a
canvas that the artist has not began to work with, it has a living entity
of its own. As the years go by, the canvas is impressed with life's experiences and lessonís which can be good or
bad, happy or sad. How the balance is reached depends on the artist who is you, you may stand back and look at the canvas
on an easel and judge what would inspire you to put there, or you may sit and have the canvas on your lap near you.
Both ways are equal. It is well to stand back and study the outlay, but you could miss seeing the detail, as the canvas
can give you the wrong prospective on what the ultimate picture will be. Again you may see the detail and be able to feel at one with the nearness
of the canvas being on your lap, but will miss the whole picture, it is for you to decide how you balance the way your
canvas of life is filled. By looking and feeling the world around you. You will see there is colour
in everything even the water we drink, you may say it is colourless but if you go to the source of the water you will
see colour in it. By sitting and looking quietly into its heart, the greens, blues, browns, greys, and white, and many more
colours will be there in the image of the earth. sky, plantation, soil, reflecting into the water.
Then the emotion of the elements serve to add another dimension, making the
water bubble, the air forming a spectrum of colour within the bubble, the force of the magnetic properties
causing it to rush it's endless journey to the
sea. causing the colour white to emerge in it's foam, to meet the white and
grey of the clouds, The fire of the sun sending it's yellow rays into the depth of the water, spreading its rays
and warmth down to the earths core to replenish and nourish, and to be able to dance on the surface of the water,
delighting the eye and causing things to look in a different light, as you are reflecting on the reflection in the water, the
earth meets the sky and causes an explosion of colour which contain all the primary colours, which can be extended and
joined to make different variations through this clear water you can now call rain, which meets the air and light of
Gods creation and manifests itself into the glory of the rainbow.
The colours of your canvas are the essence of you, each one allowing you to
use your heart and mind in a way that will
enhance your lives, be prudent in how you paint your canvas, but enjoy your
life as it is meant to be. Have fun, bring in
the colours of your enjoyment share them, and be happy with the picture you
create, bring in the love and be what
God intended you to be. Loving, Caring, in Harmony with yourself, and
I love you as you are. As you seek to find your own
special way, to relate to the world. I honour your choices, to learn in the way you feel is right for you. I know it is important that you are the
person you want to be and not someone that I, or others think you should be. I realise that I cannot know what is best
for you, although perhaps, sometimes I think I do. I have not been where you have been, viewing life from the angle you have.
I do not know what you have chosen to learn, how you have chosen to learn it, with whom, or in what time period.
I have not walked life in your eyes, so how can I know what you need.
I allow you to be in the world without a thought or word of judgement from
me about the deeds you undertake. I see no error in the thing you say and do. In this place where I am, I see that
there are many ways to perceive and experience the different facets of our world. I allow without reservation the choices
you make in each moment. I make no judgement of this for if I would deny your right to your evolution, then I
would deny that right for myself and all others to those who would choose a way I cannot walk, whilst I may not choose to
add my power and energy to this way.
I will never deny you the gift of love that God bestowed within me, for all
creation, as l love, so I shall be loved, as I sow, so shall I reap. I allow you the universal right of free will to walk your
own path, creating steps, or to sit awhile, if that is what is right for you. I will make no judgement that these steps are large
or small, nor light or heavy, or that they lead up or down, for this is just my viewpoint. I may see you do nothing and judge
it to be unworthy, and yet it may be that you bring great healing, as you stand blessed by the light of God. I cannot
always see the higher picture of Divine Order.
For it is the inalienable right of all life, to choose their own evolution,
and with great love I acknowledge your right to determine your future. In humility, I bow to the realisation that the way I
see as right for me, does not have to mean it is right for you. I know that many races, religions, customs,
nationalities, and beliefs within our world, bring us great richness, and allow us the benefit and teachings of such diverseness. I
know we each learn in our own unique way, in order to bring that love and wisdom back to the whole. I know that if there
were only one way to do something, there would need only to be one person. I will not only love you if you behave in
a way I think you should, or believe in those things I believe in. I understand you are truly a part of me, though you
may have been born in a different place and believe in a different God than I.
The love I feel is for all my children, and for all of Gods world. I know
that every living thing is a part of God, and I feel a love deep within for every person, animal, tree and flower, every bird,
river and ocean. And for all creatures in all the world. I live my life in loving Service, being the best me I can, becoming
wiser in the perfection of divine truth, becoming happier in the joy of
Hold of Every Moment.
A friend of mine opened his
wife's underwear drawer and picked up a silk paper wrapped package: "This,
- he said - isn't any ordinary package. "He unwrapped the box and stared at both the
silk paper and the box. "She got this the first time we went to New York, 8 or 9 years ago. She has never put it on. Was saving
it for a special occasion. Well, I guess this is it. He got near the bed and placed the gift box next to the other clothing he
was taking to the funeral house, his wife had just died. He turned to me and said: "Never save something for a
special occasion. Every day in your life is a special occasion".
I still think those words changed my life. Now I read more and clean less.
I sit on the porch without worrying about anything. I spend more time with myfamily, and less at work. I understood
that life should be a source of experience to be lived up to, not survived through. I no longer keep anything. I use
crystal glasses every day. I'll wear new clothes to go to the supermarket, if I feel like it. I don't save my special
perfume for special occasions, I use it whenever I want to.
The words "Someday..." and "One Day..." are fading away
from my dictionary. If it's worth seeing, listening or doing, I want to see, listen or do it now. I don't know what my friend's wife
would have done if she knew she wouldn't be there the next morning, this nobody can tell. I think she might have called her
relatives and closest friends. She might call old friends to make peace over past quarrels. I'd like to think she would go
out for Chinese, her favourite food. It's these small things that I would regret not doing, if I knew my time had come. I
would regret it, because I would no longer see the friends I would meet, letters that I wanted to write "One of
these days". I would regret and feel sad, because I didn't say to my family and friends, not times enough at least, how much I love
them. Now, I try not to delay, postpone or keep anything that could bring laughter and joy into our lives. And, on each
morning, I say to myself that this could be a special day. Each day, each hour, each minute, is special. If you got this,
it's because someone cares for you and because, probably, there's someone you care about. If you're too busy to send this
out to other people and you say to yourself that you will send it "One of these days", remember that
"One day" is far away... or might never come.. .
