You Are the Artist of Your Life


Well, one often feels victim to their linear life. They feel that perhaps things are being created that they follow rather than [following] what they create. They say that "I am at the receiving end of the energy", and we think that perhaps some... of them have been brought up to believe that structure, that they are at the receiving end of a higher power that is designing their life, and if it comes up a little bit difficult, well then, one must suffer through it.

We'd say that it is important for all of you to understand that you are the artists of your life. Your life is a canvas. It is created by you, the parameters are set up by you, and whatever you want to paint, you can paint.

There's not a free moment where it is designed and you are just following the numbers and coloring in what is going to occur. It is actually you drawing, deciding, contouring what it is you are going to paint. And then you spend a whole lifetime bringing in textures of color, mixtures of color that bring new nuances to the moment that you might not have ever considered before. Life isn't a paint-by-number. Life is an artistic creation by your soul, and you are the master artist in this regard.

Beautiful.

This helped influence a song I wrote:

"Our Design"

Do you think its selfish
to help yourself?
By helping yourself
You help everyone else
Unhappiness is a disease
We spread

Though it's not your fault
The way you feel
You have a choice
The choice to heal
You are the artist of your life
And in the end it's your design

It's not too late
To rewrite fate
Our lives are in our hands
Illuminate fear
And watch it disappear
The light is in your hands
Tonight

The light of awareness
Cleanses the soul
Eradicates the darkness
Reclaims control
You are the master of your mind
And in the end it's your design

It's not too late
To rewrite fate
Our lives are in our hands
Illuminate fear
And watch it disappear
The light is in your hands
Tonight

You are the master of your mind
You are the master of your mind
We are the artists of our lives
Destiny is our design

It's not too late
To rewrite fate
Our lives are in our hands
Illuminate fear
And watch it disappear
The light is in your hands
Tonight
