Journey of the Heart, Day 05– 03.01.05

Guiding Thought:

I bring my awareness to my heart and resonate with its love.

Naturally and easily my heart-love radiates through me.

Love is present now—rippling in to the future, releasing the past.

Ripples of love



I am opening up in sweet surrender…

The saga continues. I strayed from “the technique” and painted a blah picture. Sure. It’s cute. Cute, like the gift of a 5th grader to granny who hangs it on the fridge because she’s proud of the attempt of “her little artist”.

I started with wondering how I could expand on “the technique”. I thought, “oh, I know, I’ll just try a different type of flower.” As soon as I got the first one done I thought, “well, I’ve ruined this…how can I salvage it”?

So it became this after-the-fact freeform salvage operation that was neither technique nor freeform.

Here’s the lesson: There is a formula to accomplishing painting certain types of flowers (see yesterday, for example). The formula works. If I stray from the formula I get some mishmash that results in a picture that looks like it was done by a 5th grader.

Here’s the lesson’s macro-cosmic translation: In the process of creation, there are formulas that work. There is not a lot of common knowledge, much less application, about this right now in the world at large, but if you look at ancient and esoteric religions and philosophies, you will find “secrets” to creating and manifesting (some examples are below). The secrets are the techniques, the formulas. Follow the formula, get what you seek. Don’t follow the formula, get a mishmash of unsophisticated (immature, unpolished, childish) results; this is the world we live in, with people who have lost their connection with the techiques for using Creative Energy (their heart energy, Love), and are creating a mishmash jumbled world.

My paintings and the dynamic I’m experiencing are showing me/teaching me about learning (higher, divine) techniques and understanding Love’s formulas, pulling me out of doing it “my way” in order to create with even more beauty and perfection…to get to something deeper/higher/more sophisticated, more intentionally.


This is from John Randolph Price’s The Abundance Book:

The Truth and the Law

  1. Your outer world of form and experience is a reflection of your inner world of thoughts and feelings. As above, so below. As within, so without. That is the Law.
  2. The greater your awareness of the Presence of God within you, the more that Presence fills your consciousness. That is the Law.
  3. The deeper your understanding of Spirit as the Source, Substance, and Activity of your supply, the more permanently that Truth will be etched in your consciousness. That is the Law.
  4. It is your spiritual consciousness–your knowledge of the Presence of God within you as total and complete fulfillment–that interprets itself as every form or experience in your world. That is the Law.
