Welcome to my world!
I’m so glad you could join me
Where did you find the key?
In your heart?
Oh, wouldn’t it be so wonderful if others knew that secret!
There is much in this world we will never find by looking for it
Only by being still and letting it come to us, will we begin to see all that is truly there
The day is done
The sun has set
The night has come
In the dark I can hear my heart beating
My feet bare on the damp grass
I am me, and you are you
Sitting together in silence
Communicating without words
Content in each other’s presence
All is right with the world
The greatest achievement in your life will be your life
It is your masterwork, the culmination of years, nay decades, of intense concentration, of pouring your heart out and of choosing what background it will have, what characters, what theme, and every other detail
In the twilight of your life, will you look back on your creation as a proud parent, or will you wish you had painted differently: maybe used brighter colours, chosen a different setting or even different characters or a different theme?
If you feel within your heart that this is so, then make those changes now!
It is never too late to alter the course of a life!
And it is never too late to choose more vibrancy: more passion, joy, despair, and ecstasy
This life is your greatest masterpiece: what you will be remembered by for the rest of eternity
So paint it as loud and large as you can!
Use the brightest colours: the more contrast the better! Cram it full of everything you possibly can so when you look back at it you will feel a peace knowing you couldn’t possibly have done any more. Knowing that while others perfected theirs with tiny, precise brushstrokes (always staying within the lines), and insipid pastels, you didn’t even use a brush – you used your hands to throw colour at the canvas – and what a canvas it is now!
Be proud of yourself knowing you lived passionately in high color and dared to be all that you ever dreamed you could be!
Truly, you lived!
Look around you with new eyes and see all that you are offered: this whole world is yours to play in and with
However, we need to learn to treat the gifts we are given as sacred
You wouldn’t let your children away with damaging their toys would you?
This world is our gift: not to possess and destroy, but to nurture and protect
We do not own anything. We were given everything, and it can be taken away at any time. And sooner or later it will be. Thus we must honour and cherish what we have been blessed with for the short period of time that we are permitted
This life is transient. We are here such a short time. We have so little time to know the grass under our feet, the feel of the wind in our hair
These are the true joys in life; the greatest treasures. This is why we are here: to know these miracles for the space between heartbeats
For we are the guardians
To live is to breathe, to be, to love
To write is to acknowledge this essential fact
And to everyone else
There will always be sufficient resources for what you truly need in life
The cosmos is a generous parent and you are a much beloved child
You will only ever go without if you do not agree to receive the gifts you are showered with daily
