You are an artist.
Your Life is your art. Do you like what you see?
Art is not just something on piece of paper. Or in a museum.
It is your life.
Deep within you is a calling, a gift that you’re uniquely here to express. I believe there’s a higher purpose for which you are born, beyond eating, sleeping, and sexing. Something beautiful and profound.
Musicians play with instruments. Artists create with tools. Flutes, drums, guitars, reeds, chimes, pots and pans, wooden spoons, pens, paper, clay, metal, cloths, paints, brushes, elephant dung. It’s all up for grabs. But the true “artists” of life—let’s call them “lifists” create with their hearts. It doesn’t matter if you’re a musician, a waiter, a parent, a teacher or a mechanic. It doesn’t matter if you’re pouring coffee, scrubbing floors, trading shares, or coaching kids on the playground. You can be walking, sitting, speaking or meditating. It’s not “what” you do, but “how” and “where” you do it from. Are you connected? Is your heart in tune? Are you a heartist?
At any moment you can create magic. At any moment you can do something different from what you have done. We often think that we are stuck doing what we are doing. But any moment you can shake it up.
It has become very fashionable to “model” successful people these days. You can create some success by copying other’s formula. But I want to urge you to let go of what you know. Let go of someone else’s road map.
Blaze your own trail. Trust and open so deeply to the innate intelligence of Life within you.
Often we hold onto the known ways of doing things because they seemed to be working, either for us or someone else. But we feel uninspired.
There are deeper dreams dancing within your soul, for a reason.
Just because what you want to do has never been done before, it does not mean it cannot be.
Transcend what people tell you is impossible.
Especially those who have never done what you are seeking to.
For a moment, throw away all the 7 step how-to books, success formulas, mental strategies. And FEEL deeply what is most authentically seeking to express through you.
Not anyone else. YOU.
Deep within your heart there is something magical that wants to be given birth to through you. It is the force of Life itself seeking to express through you.
-Let go of any judgements of what your life creation looks like.
-Embrace “failure” with delight as a learning opportunity that brings you one step closer.
-Get radically curious about everything.
-Don’t take yourself too seriously.
-Let go of control.
Jesus didn’t take a weekend workshop on branding.
Buddha didn’t go to Buddha Academy.
Miles Davis was not trying to sounds like The Beatles.
They just dared to let go. And dove fully into now. They embraced the unknown. They threw out the rules of what things were supposed to look like so that the authenticity of their lives could emerge.
People all around the world felt it.
Anything great or revolutionary that has evolved humanity forward, was not done by copying something from the safety of the past. The past is dead.
Feel this moment as deeply as you can.
Let it move you.
And find out what happens.
An artist must excavate his art from his heart.
Your heart is your paintbrush.
The entire universe is your canvas.
Your life is your art.
Dare to make it a masterpiece.
You are a revolutionary.
