We make our life what it is, but we are not the creator of it. We are created by Universal Love with the intention of spreading Love and making the lives of others a masterpiece.
Think of your life as a giant canvas. Everyday you have an opportunity to paint a new picture. The more your mind is settled, the more in touch you become with your creative self. You can make each day a masterpiece inspired by love, or you can just create an ordinary day of existence. There is nothing wrong in this, it just that life isn’t lived to the fullest. It is still beautiful in its essence, but its beauty is not known because of unconsciousness. You are not the creator of life, but you create the way the life you are given is lived.
Although we don’t create life itself (only the Universe can do that), we are responsible for how it is lived. Our origin is not of our doing. No matter what humans do, we will never be as miraculous as our creator. This is our source – many call it God – but what matters is that you know it exist. This is the energy Jesus called Father. Although in Hinduism and Buddhism, there are different Brahmans (Gods), to me they are of the same Universal Energy. They are the energy of life itself. This is the all-encompassing energy of love. This energy is the creator of all that is. Without it, existence wouldn’t be.
When there is alignment with this energy, there is love. It is the intention of creation to love, it is why we exist. Pray to it, nurture it, practice it, become one with it. You can make it who you are but, understand, it is already who you are.
To be aware of this is to awaken to your higher self. We are not the painters of our picture, Universal Energy is. We are but the brushes and the base of our behavior is what is put on our canvas. Paint a picture from your heart and it will be a painting that all we aspire to see. Or you can paint a picture from the Conditioned Mind and it will probably wind up in the attic under a pile of old clothes.
Learn the source of your creation and learn who you truly are. Without this, you will just keep searching and using things that actually keep you from your source of Universal Love within. When this happens, the necessary energy to transform the energy of love that is within you, to the canvas of your life, does not occur. It is up to each individual to live the life that they are given from the base of Universal Love, and to make it the masterpiece that was intended, for all to be a part of.
