life as art

it seems
as the years
go by
we begin
to group things
as a whole

falling in love
messing up
getting well

succeeding
failing

having faith
loosing faith

moving forward

and these
are life

they are the painting
of our experience here

we awaken one morning
to find
that we have already
laid the outline
sketched the figures
and we begin
filling everything in
with their perspective
textures
and colors

and the painting
begins
to make some sense
begins to become
a portrait

we begin to wonder
is it us painting
the portrait
or the portrait
painting us
and the story
of a life

Namaste sister Jenny, great philosophical question. Are we products, creators, or both?

If we can scientifically prove there exists no separation between you and I then can we not conclusively argue we are ONE being. If this be the truth expression of reality how then do we define I?

In Lak' ech, using truth to discover love...
