Decided to dance a little deeper in life, and wow can spirit dance!

Just Be You!

In all those things we ever do in this world, nothing comes close to a greater happiness than when we discover something. Let’s say you’ve never painted before and someone says let’s give it a try. You have never done it before so it doesn’t really mean too much but your prepared to give it a go. You start off dripping paint, splashing the un-splashable and outright smearing reality across surrealism right into abstract in five easy strokes…but…you had a ball.

You couldn’t believe how much fun it was to learn this stroke and that, and the ability to really create something from such a few lessons. Some are easy, some are difficult…but they are the ones that make you the most happy because you have understood them and done fantastic things with them. You don’t fully understand it all but as you do it, the more and more the brush feels like an extension of your hand. You can’t wait to do it again, and again. You’ve found something that truly makes you happy. Rembrandt look out, I’m here πŸ˜€

Now apply that to your life…all that dripping, smearing and even experimenting all over, again and again, finding rough bits but getting better and better and astounded when you have one of those breakthroughs and create something that truly feels like you. Especially that love that is one of life’s masterpieces, even if it has a tiny flaw that only you can see. And because of that you put it in the backroom because you want to do better. In fact you will do better because that is just practice till you do get it right, do get it perfect, and this won’t be from rote and teachings but a style that is all your own. And it will answer you the day you create that masterpiece that is you.

You will be mesmerized by what you have created, like a dream on canvas it will glow it is that perfect. You have created unconditional love. You don’t even have to touch it anymore, you have achieved life’s purpose and now you can be that gallery of perfection and be on display as the masters always are…you now know that this could not have happened unless all that went before led you to this moment, teaching your heart exactly how to be…just by being you ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

  1. Hola Mark… trying on another devise to try and comment… Beautiful words of wisdom and creativity… you are really tuning into your Divine perfection each moment… after all your experience. Yes once we allow ourselves to indulge in life’s creation, to play and practice until we feel content with our creations and self… we can truly relax in appreciation for just existing and being ourself, bringing in more and more joy to relish in. Thankyou for shining your light dear Mark and being here for Humanity. Much love barbara x

      And ‘Hola’ returned in kind dear lady.(I got a comment that was just ‘Hola’ πŸ˜€). This wonderful world of technology is slowly becoming a virus within itself. More and more people I cannot comment to and so many cannot comment on my site. An electronic virus it has to be because there is no rhyme nor reason to the who I can and who I can’t. I’m down to about 15 people now…but…in saying that maybe I’m being ‘redirected’ elsewhere πŸ˜‚
      Anyway, thank you for your lovely words kind lady, it is good to hear from you. I’ve tried mobile, laptops, desktops, messenger pigeons…shoot, I’d go out onto my balcony and yell if I thought it would make a difference πŸ˜‚ 🀣
      Hang in there dear lady, may your day be also ‘you’ in all its blessings πŸ˜€ ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

  2. Beautifully said dear Mark… May the world be our canvas of creativity to bring love and enlightenment to those ready to receive it…
    Sending special hugs your way dear Mark.. πŸ’–πŸ™πŸ’–

      Hey Sue, glad to hear that voice…and know…that you are indeed applying that love to your canvas dear lady. Be it the garden, craft or heart, you always apply that inner creator in all your works. And thank you for those blessings kind lady, they are received with gratitude and returned in kind. I also hope that your summer has allowed you some grounding and allowed a rest, a little time to just be that part of you that applies that love to you ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½
      Love and hugs your way and may there be paint, dirt and love all over your hands my friend, then I know you have a smile on your face πŸ˜€ ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹ πŸ˜‚ 🀣

  6. So beautifully articulated. . . When we embrace ourselves with all our flaws, it is indeed a true way of living a peaceful blessed life πŸ™‚

    • Mark Lanesbury

      We only ever hold those flaws because they unintentionally come from those we love and look up too Himali, we know no other way. They too were raised in such a way that they can only be what they were shown, thinking that this is love. But…it is that very process that asks us to look deeper within that pain to find the one thing we are missing. We think we are un-loveable because of that hurt but in that masterpiece that is us we will discover that we had just been using the old water colors not realising there are other ways and start to upgrade into the oils to truly glow as a masterpiece should. And as we understand them that glow of satisfaction, peace and beauty do come to the surface and we no longer fight ourselves over the strokes that we make. Understand the artist and the self love will flow ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

  7. Those tiny flaws are part of what makes us who we are. And that is probably the hardest thing we will ever learn to do, love ourselves.

    • Mark Lanesbury

      Most certainly dear lady, and thankfully, slowly, it always does show us that inner love. And your paint brush is working well Pam, many masterful posts to show us…us, too πŸ˜€ ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

      They have a secret but they can’t explain it. It is…them. How can you explain a miracle…as we all are ❀️
      Thank you for sharing your gift too dear lady. It can be felt but we have to understand it ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹
