Your life here on Earth is meant to be a beautiful piece of art and it should be original. Create your life to be YOUR work of art. Not a duplicate of someone else’s masterpiece. Too many of us rather than create our own work of art, emerge into life like photocopies. We template our lives based on the lives lived by people around us. We emulate our fathers and mothers, our friends, media and television -- our goals therefore, are not our own, but merely suggestions from the people and ideas we sometimes blindly emulate. And so billions of people live a life that is not their own. Rather than listen within to what their heart or spirit is asking them to do, they enter the giant human photocopier machine and emerge with a templated life.
The result is damning. For example, according to a Gallup Poll of people in 200 countries, 87% of people “are emotionally disconnected from their workplaces and less likely to be productive.” All of those years of study, all of that time spent -- only to end up in a career or job that keeps you unfulfilled. And the reason is because when it comes to trying to set goals for our lives and careers - we chose to go the photocopier route rather than view our life as a blank canvas, ready to be painted into a masterpiece.
Some had invested decades of their lives pursuing a goal and getting trapped in a job that kept them ‘safe’ and made their parents proud but that now was making them feel bored, lonely and unfulfilled.
How do you avoid this?
Michael Beckwith teaches an idea called Visioning. It’s the concept of setting goals not from your logical mind -- but by tapping and listening to that greater aspect of yourself and discovering why you’re here on Earth.
Most people blindly follow intention, but the next level is when your intention flows from your inspiration. Intention based on blind emulation can lead you astray.
But intention based on inner inspiration can you lead to your purpose. When you move towards mastery, “inspiration LEADS to intention
Your life is meant to be a canvas for you to create the most beautiful painting you can imagine. You are an artist. An artist of your own life. Make it a masterpiece.
