“To live a life you love, love the life you have and imagine a future worth drawing you forward.” –Alex Grey
We are all artists of consciousness creating our “pictures” of reality. Every bit of what we experience is a figment of our imagination. Since co-creative authorship of the story of our lives is in our hands, how will we most positively, powerfully interpret the life we have and create this precious life? Through the filter of our own unique sequence of circumstances, we sculpt our life with the “chisel” of our world view.
Today at Art Church we will reflect on the beauty of our mental creations and recognize that we are the authors of the story of our life. Part of creating the life you love is taking time to see how you are manifesting your Soul’s purpose thereby tapping the Soul’s infinite joy. Looking at our mental creations as artworks, we see thoughts as psychotronic devices, windows on new realities, prayers, spells, hexes, charms, and protective Talismans. How can our lives fulfill the higher love we are called to manifest?
A life we love is filled with our appreciation of the world and we are also appreciated by others. We refine our connoisseurship of the beauty and blessings of life and develop visioning skills. Our thoughts are sculpted in the mental studio. To create beautiful thoughts and ideas, the Craftsman in the studio of our Being accepts mentorship and guidance from our Soul Angel.
Explore with us the skills and tools in the Art of Life. What is the “anatomy” of your “Love-able Life”? If money and circumstances opened your life to unlimited possibilities, what passions would you pursue and what would be different? Come to Art Church ready to write and draw from the wellspring of your imagination and consider the life you love.
Alex Grey, world-renowned artist, poet, and author, is best loved for his paintings which portray multiple dimensions of reality, interweaving biological anatomy with psychic and spiritual energies. His books, Sacred Mirrors, The Mission of Art, Transfigurations, and Art Psalms, trace the development of his work and mystical experiences that shaped his spiritual artistic life. Alex's most recent monograph, Net of Being, addresses how his art is evolving the cultural body through icons of interconnectedness. www.alexgrey.com
