1- We can only Love Others if we Love Ourselves.
Do you love and fully appreciate that light of spirit are connected in Iconography, within you, and all that it reveals to you day after day? Do you believe you have some extraordinary interior being to share ? It is a radical act of faith to believe we have something to share which is not wealth, beauty or popularity. When we experienced a deep awareness of a divine being within, which can only come from the light of spirit, naturally we want to share it. Some people share their spirit through music, art, contemplation, by experiencing nature, through exercise, or like I do, by painting modern byzantine icons.
2- Seek and you shall find, Ask and you shall Receive
We say quite often these days, “we are all connected“, ” we have come from the same source”, etc. It is logical to deduce that we have been given a great gift and it is there to be opened and enjoyed. We are healers, teachers, philosophers, dreamers, inventors, mystics, religious icon painters and more. The source is this light of spirit is within, and it knows no bounds or obstructions. I wonder if we spent more time contemplating our existence, the mystery which put us here, and what we are, if we would come closer to recognizing the beauty this light of spirit being contained.
3 – Light and Spirit are connected which is the best part.
It’s important that we learn to appreciate the simple act of breathing; the fact that we can think, see or even move our body. We should appreciate being alive, no matter what we do; whether that be thinking about the next scientific breakthrough, or simply sitting at home and painting small spiritual icons.
