Beyond the Mirror

If I am you and you are me…
Then why do I feel the need to change you?
If your thoughts are my thoughts and my thoughts are your thoughts…
Then why do I try to persuade you?

Is it because I gaze upon the mirror
Disturbed and in disgust?
Seeing my own faults,
Projecting them unto you?
My own negativity
Disgusted only by yours?

Look past the mirror…
Beneath the surface.
Look past the negativity…
Only beauty remains.
Seen within you,
It shall be seen within me.

If my thoughts are your thoughts
And your thoughts are my thoughts…
Once I see past the flesh,
You will too.
Seeing the divine being
That I am,
I now see you as the same.
If I am you and you are me,
Then we are one in the same.


Falling into the Canvas

It is not enough to take part in the Canvas of Life, but more important to fall into the canvas with whole heart and soul. What does it mean to fall into the canvas? It means not just stepping into the canvas while actively participating in the canvas, but being and active participant with continuous intention of actively participating in the canvas AND creating the life that is most Desired while enjoying every aspect of the canvas.

From the darkened clouds painted on the canvas to the neon fluorescent and radiating colors, we are to create the lives as we choose not as others choose. Whenever a painter paints it is through his own interpretation of the Universe, but when others analyze His work they attach their own interpretation.

If we only see one side of the painting, we miss the creator’s intent. See the beauty of all the varying colors/varying interpretations and lose yourself in the many mysteries that lay before you in the canvas.

Where does one begin? Put down the blackberry. Hang up the cellphone. Stop texting for moment. Just sit and ‘be’ for a moment, allowing the true nature to fill your soul. Can’t do it?! Then take a weekend and spend some needed time in the woods. Maybe it is time for a retreat?!

It is about taking time to enjoy the beauty of nature…returning back to Mother Earth and being one. Many will oppose this idea, but eventually will need some necessary downtime or as I like to call it…’Me Time.’ during this me time is the one way we can bridge the gap between us and the Universe.

Stepping Into the Canvas choose to fall into it with whole heart and soul. Lend a hand, an ear or a friendly smile. Do what you want today not what others say ‘you should’ do. Stay away from the trap of pleasing others, but please only yourself. Today I will not only step, but will fall into the canvas.
