The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance. -Aristotle
I believe this is true for everything in life; I believe every moment is an act of creation with an infinite number of possible outcomes depending on the choices we make.
When I create a piece of art, It is often quite mysterious to me. I don’t have an end in mind; it’s an improvised act of spontaneous creation. If everything we see or experience outwardly has some sort of inward significance because we are co-creating it with the Universe in the present moment, it is useful, I think, not to be overly concerned with reflecting on the past or on what will come of it, but rather to enjoy and appreciate it fully.
*note* I was interrupted whilst typing this the other day. The interruption fits this theme. Sort of. Read on.
I was typing this at a coffee shop. I got up to a get a refill and as I did so an older man engaged me in conversation by asking what my tattoo means (for the curious, it means gratitude). He was charming and engaging and told me many lovely things about myself. Me, being a highly curious individual and because I found the conversation both fascinating and enjoyable, stayed with it. The gist of it is that he wanted to “own” me and “take care of me” like a “daughter” and be my “daddy/dom”. I have had interesting propositions in the past but this one was especially interesting for a couple of reasons:
1.) The day before this happened, I wrote this post proclaiming an end to my days as a girl with daddy issues. I also had a conversation with a friend the previous day about relationships and integrity during which I told my friend, “If I wanted to, I could find a sugar daddy tomorrow who wants to take care of me but that’s not what I want”. (Did you catch that? I said TOMORROW!)
2.) The other reason it’s interesting is that a couple of days before this happened, I wrote this post about energy vampires as it relates to relationships and how co-created these relationships are.
This experience taught me an invaluable lesson about the focusing part of the Law of Attraction. We really are co-creating this experience with the Universe and the word really is powerful. I will continue to set my intentions and be even more focused with my intentions. Here are some new statements:
I am attracting my strong, healthy, happy, supportive, loving, peaceful, Beloved Soul Mate to myself.
I am attracting all the financial security I will ever need.
The Universe it conspiring to bring me more and more goodness with every breath I take.
I am healthy and happy.
My children are healthy and happy.
The world becomes more peaceful and loving every day.
