You are either alive or your dead. You are moving or at a standstill. Life is a manifestation of growth, change and purpose. Every living and even unliving thing has a purpose. From the ant to the whale. From the rose to YOU. Every purpose looks different, but in it's absolute value, all purpose is equal. Life in itself is an adventure and we decide to be the Explorer or the Spectator. With no intention but reflection and catharsis, I wanted to write about the abstracts of life. Take what you need, leave what you don't, and pass it on.
In its' entirety, life is truly a beautiful experience. If it was to be captured in art form, it would be a mixed media composition with hints of impressionism and abstract highlights. It would have every color imaginable and if possible would feature mixtures of oils, pastels, and even chalks. Yes, life is beautiful when you can stand back, look at it and appreciate the masterpiece that it is. Unpredictable and unique. When you're in the midst of it, you may not always be able to see the beauty. When it seems that you're experiencing resistance, strife, struggle or pain, it can seem more like a Monet; undesirable up close, but beautiful as you step back. Sometimes when I feel dazed and underwhelmed, I have to consider the grander picture. I must consider howw every moment serves a purpose and I, to a certain degree, am the master artist of my life's work. I've never been a detailed oriented person, so undertaking the responsibility of looking at life through a greater lens is the most beneficial when I feel like asking so many questions.
Just learn live and BE. Learn to accept what you can't change, and be still and connected with the strength and power within you, to change what you can.
I write often about understanding the polarity of the human experience. In not only understanding the polarity of our experiences but also about learning to connect every range of emotions that come as a consequence of these experiences. As great as it would be to always feel on top of the world, that is not reality. It would be ideal to have perfect relationships with everyone in your life but it is just not the case. You will be dissapointed in, proud of, in and out of live with, excited, irritated, and inspired by those you feel close attachments with. Life will be up and down and remember that it's a perfect algorithm of nature. Know that to experience the emotions, the ebbs and flow without judgement, will keep you free and empowered to keep going.
Remember that the only thing constant in life is change. You may affect the world, but it will continue to revolve no matter what you decide to do or not do. Therefore BE still when it's necessary, and keep going when it's time to because that's the natural disposition of life. Nothing will stop for you, so you have to nurture your mimd, body and spirit to stay focused and keep progressing.
