Yesterday morning as I was walking toward the lake I stopped suddenly with a “Whoa… Cool!” The beauty of the morning mist hovering over the lake stopped me in my tracks. This is not an everyday occurrence, but it is also not that rare. It does leave me in awe every time I see it however.
I continued on and stopped for a minute to take a moment to soak in the beauty of the moment. When I turned back to the trail I saw someone on their porch and said, “I was just admiring the mist on the lake.” He looked out and had obviously not noticed it. Then I said while pointing, “That bank of clouds over there looks like it is actually touching the lake.” He then paused for a minute, looking, and said. “Yeah, it does… Cool!”
As I continued on my walk, I realized that this is what my life is all about. Living my life, walking in the truth and sharing it in gentle and subtle ways as I go. I need to be reminded of that a lot. When we first moved here people laughed at me… a lot. I was just that crazy woman who walked all the time. But now after watching me for three years I am seeing people making changes in their own lives to become more healthy and mindful. Our best teachings come not from our words, but from the way we live.
As an artist I believe it is my joy, pleasure and responsibility to let people get a glimpse of the world through this artist’s eyes. In fact all awakened beings share in this, artists or not. It is only through seeing glimpses of what life not only can be but is if we only open our eyes to it that people will begin to realize the reality that they have created for themselves does not have to be so.
So as you walk through this life be open to your own opportunities to see the world through new eyes. Live and walk in truth and love and others may have the same opportunity through you.
