What You’re Looking For is Far Closer than You Might Imagine!
All of us go through the Ups and Downs of the Spiritual Adventure. This is an unavoidable fact of life. Sometimes we feel the exuberance and excitment of making great strides; other times we feel the sadness or frustration of backpedaling or slipping into a hole.
That’s why it’s important for us to make time to remember the strides, the successes, the ahas and the wins. For when we do this, we can more easily see that we are all works in progress.
Yes, it’s important for us to periodically step back and see how well things have been going. Because, in reality, we are masterpieces in the making. Whether we believe it or not, inside we’re already Perfect; we’re already Enlightened. We’re already Life Masters. Even though we may not be fully aware of it.
Legend credits Michaelangelo with a clever response to a curious sculptor-to-be, who wanted to understand the master’s process. As the tale goes, Michaelangelo said
First you decide what you want to create. Then you just bring your hammer and chisel to your block of marble, and chip away everything that isn’t part of your masterpiece.
Whether Michaelangelo actually said this or not doesn’t really matter. What matters is the intention behind the message—
The masterpiece is already there inside the raw material.
Think about that for a moment. If you direct your attention inward, then you must realize that the great Masterpiece of YOU is already here just waiting to be uncovered and brought—fully formed—into the world. In other words, there is no need for you to reshape or remold or recast all that you imagine you have become into something different! You just need to clear away some of the clutter, some of the stone, some of the dust—and the Masterpiece will be revealed.
What a concept!
And where is all this clutter and stone and dust? Well, that is the product of distorted thinking by an ego-mind that truly believes that it is trying to keep you safe. It’s just a question of realizing the truth so that you can see what is real and what is not.
Clear away all that stuff and—guess what?—you expose the treasure of who you really are. And you become totally free to embrace your full self and to show up more fully in the world.
