Painting; artwork

We create every second of our lives – it’s our artwork

In life we are creative. We create every second of our lives – it’s our artwork. The colour we put on the canvas is colour that we’ve chosen to put on the canvas. But we selected the paint when we were on the other side. What were the challenges you set up for yourself?


Inner peace is a rhythm of life. It is a connection with the universal energy, the cycle of it. It is getting in rhythm with the music of the universe. If you are at one with yourself – if you are really in tune with your inner life – there is value in every choice you make. It doesn’t matter what choice you make. Some people think, Should I go through this door, or should I go through that door? And they spend a whole lot of time trying to decide which door to go through. They all lead to the same road.

But we’re stuck trying to find a way: Which door should I choose? Does this door have value, or does that door have value? Is there treasure behind this door, or is it behind that door? I don’t know. Maybe I need someone to help me to figure out which door it is. And they spend this time in this sort of purgatory-like existence where there’s no movement.

Where you are going

The thing is to pick a door and walk through it. It’s going to take you where you need to go. You don’t have to worry about making the wrong choice. Because there’s value in every moment; there’s value in every choice – there’s a lesson in every choice you make, should you choose to see that. It doesn’t matter. Move. Go through the door. Don’t contemplate the doors. That one is prettier. That one looks pretty severe. It doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter. Go through the door.

If there is any choice that would be the least desirable or closest to wrong, it would be to not make a choice at all. And some people back off. I’m not going to go through any door. I’m comfortable here contemplating doors. That’s where my existence lives. I’ll watch other people walk through. I don’t know what’s happening on the other side of it, but I’ll let them choose. I’ll wait to see how many go through this door, and I’ll wait to see how many people go through that door. I’ll get opinions on the doors. And I’ll have them measured.

So all of that fear is about deciding, which doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter. Move. People don’t move in their lives. They don’t grow. They become very accustomed to the room they find themselves in, and that can be very painful sometimes. We all know those people who are invested in their pain. In those cases, they need to move. It doesn’t matter which direction, which way. It doesn’t matter. But where they are is where the pain is, and the growth is in the movement. The insight is in the movement, not in the stasis.

Moving in life

It’s about getting people to move – move in their lives. Spiritually move. People may not always demonstrate the healing that you believe they should be receiving. Your role is to realise you have an ability to connect them to a higher energy. Sometimes people’s maladies – their deformity, their lack of energy in any part of the body – are all part of something they need to experience to learn the lesson they need to learn. Sometimes they refuse to learn the lesson of what that condition brings them. And sometimes they need to stay there until they learn the lesson, whatever it is, from the limitation – from whatever. If it means deepening in compassion for something, then they can release it.

People are running around everywhere looking for power, and they already have it. They spend their whole lives scurrying from shop to kiosk trying to find the one who has got the power. All they have to do is stand and look in the mirror and they’ll recognize: This is truth. This is truth. It’s already here. It’s here in this second, in this moment.

We were born to celebrate our existence, and too often all we do is mourn. It’s a crime, but that’s the journey. That is the journey from going from mourning to celebrating.

Challenges in this lifetime

What did you sign up for when you came into this lifetime? What were the challenges you set up for yourself? It isn’t that you came to “experience” and just be. It’s like you created a syllabus before you ever got here. Then, through your going through the syllabus, you have graduated into whatever level you want in terms of your growth. You laid out the obstacle course. And you chose the circumstances in which you were born. You chose the things that you were going to have to confront. You made the hurdles higher. That’s where the creation comes in. Before you ever were put into this plane. It’s a challenge. Life is a challenge in the good sense. The challenge is for the participant to overcome these obstacles, and in the obstacles are growth. There’s growth in every single obstacle you’ll ever encounter.

In life we are creative. We create every second of our lives – it’s our artwork. The colour we put on the canvas is colour that we’ve chosen to put on the canvas. But we selected the paint when we were on the other side.
