The masterpiece

You are a highly accomplished artist, creating the ongoing masterpiece of your life. It is a singularly unique work of art that comes to life more richly and more fully in your every moment.

The masterpiece of your life is not the same as any other, and that is what gives it much of its beauty. It is a living, breathing, feeling work of art that is a distinctive and irreplaceable expression of wonder and joy.

As you feel the remarkable reality of yourself, always remember that you transcend every label that could ever be placed on you. Though there are many ways you have been, there are countless other ways that you can yet be.

You are not old or young, not wealthy or poor, not healthy or ill, for those are all merely outward states that you may choose to experience. In fact, you are life itself, and every experience adds to the value and richness.

Just as the darker areas of a painting and the lighter areas play off each other, so too do the varieties of your experience all add to the masterpiece of your life. With each new day, the masterpiece becomes more magnificent.

In this moment, work your art well, letting it flow from your authentic heart. Give your spirit cause to soar, and forever capture the unique beauty of now within the masterpiece that is your life.

— Ralph Marston
