Beautiful Words ..So True!

Beautiful Words…So True !!
I am, everything, I am nothing, I am a child of the Divine,
we are,
I am, all Is, I am.
The best way, to celebrate life on this planet, Is to join each other in a spirit of oneness. within the community of Mankind, the spirit of oneness, drives us to a realization, toward a practical application, of the same wholeness, completeness, harmony, balance and unity, striving for perfection, we will not rest until we achieve it.
My joy is in the sharing of the journey with everything, everything reflects the Godness The Godness reflects everything, everything is Divine, the Divine is everything, everything is perfect. I have no desire to change perfection, when my earth journey, is only to change, my fragmented self, I have much to do.
To discover joy, is to return to a state of oneness, with the universe. We are one, you and I, together we suffer, together exist, and forever will recreate each other, I sense the Divine in all things. I sense myself the apprentice, I am the rough ashlar, being shaped, each facet exposed, perfected, by the clinical precision of a surgeon’s knife, wielded in a Divine hand.
To be an instrument, of the Divine Musician, I move, I have my being, to this Divine tune, I am, no more, no less, of myself, I am not Divine, merely a receptacle, of Divinity. The joy of the journey is the fullness of the journey…whatever is, is, I embrace it all from a place of deep thankfulness, all of it. as it is, pleasure, pain, Its all the same, all of it. I surrender it all back to God, all of it, no attachment, have I, to any of it. And so it is.
All life is energy, we each, have an infinite capacity to discern it, thats why we are here, to practice it, for me this is, I sense, my journey. We are all infinitely different, that is also God’s wish. Trying to change anything on this planet requires energy, energy requires resources, changing yourself from a place of Divine appreciation is power, it is not dependent on earthly resources; It comes from the one true source.
Gandhi said it all, Be the change you wish to see in the world.
That is the only meaningful way to change anything, most people however well meaning, when they think they know better, and try to implement, their wishes from a place of force, become part of the problem, the beginning of a moral dictatorship, which, then takes them from their innocence,only agape truly heals, anything, for it is God’s way, be from a place of peace, agape, and you will be in authentic power. Only that changes, anything, this is how it is, God did not make us to be sad, He made us to be, the light, so shine! shine!
Pick yourself up dust yourself down, and start all over again. This is God’s wish in this moment, know that all is well and all will be well, live from this certainty, do not doubt God, nor the Divine within each one of us, for this is authentic power, which we have a duty of care, to nurture, in ourselves and others, for we are each our brothers and sisters keepers.
When we live in the light of God, let ourselves be embraced by angels, and wise brethren, how can we fail on the journey, each journey is blessed,far more than most will ever know, in this particular lifetime, will ever know:)
In this knowingness, what inner certitude it inspires! I know I am blessed, I know you are blessed, I know everything is blessed, in oneness we are, it is, will always be, and that’s good enough for me.
On this earth plane trying to force anything, ultimately, consumes the forcer. Spirit is authentic power, it just unfolds, work from this place. Expect nothing, intend, gently, from a place of profound agape, and relax, and watch it unfold, there is an authentic power in this. Infinite patience does indeed produce instant results:)
everything is perfect as it is, look not for change in others, and then resent them, when you consider them unchanged enough. I have no expectation of anyone, thus, they don’t disappoint me. I am aware that of mine own self, I can do nothing, I am an instrument, a very happy instrument, through which the Divine can play me like a harp..”Au

All Blessings, Grace and Gratitude

About Alasdair Urquhart Artist and Poet

I am an Artist, Painter, Writer, Poet , Illustrator, Professional Creative Since I was a young child, the exploration of my universe, has been through mark making. Through the innocence of this process, I found a means of communication with others.......a point of contact. Plants, Animals, People, Birds , Insects....... The Cosmos itself............... ..began to be revealed, before my wide, curious eyes. It opened my life, my heart, my mind, something......... fundamental, was touched deep within me, each and every time. Always new....... It was alchemy.... It was beautiful..... I felt my spirit soar........for I had found, A Universal language. For Man it has ever been thus; since earliest times, it has been one of our most basic modes of interaction. Art, draws on the essence of Nature, the Universe itself; connecting us to her rhythms and illimitable moods. When Ancient Man made marks on cave walls it was to reveal to their peers, the mysteries of life....so also its practicalities; for the need for interdependence in daily duties, if they were to survive.......... never mind thrive. Today, there has never been a greater need for Art. Art celebrates all of the senses; giving the body balance and harmony, the soul and mind, a sense of belonging. In the natural world, the function of each organism is to realise its fullest potentialities - - that is its fundamental ethos. We have a need, and duty, to create a Society in which, each one of us, has a chance to develop, their creative abilities to the fullest, in a caring, nurturing environment. We need to redefine our vision of how we wish the world to be ...... The eternal moment is now. for our world is perishing through this very lack. Art works on the inner and the outer senses. Our children are the future! Unless they are nurtured and esteemed through the Arts the present behavioural poverty in our Society will continue to spiral down........." http://alasdairurquhart.webs.com/apps/videos/videos/view/434... How would you describe your style of art? It is an internal response to the energies passing through me in the Eternal Now. it has a figurative, colourful element which is a partial response to the visual impressions received. It is a synthesis of all of my senses. ..especially of Intuition and Knowing ....those most internal of journey senses. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VyBgB68vxVo Describe one of your paintings: It is a portrait of a child...Leela....aged three Her Grandmother commissioned it. My brief was to capture the essence of her nature... before her elfin quality, was lost, to social patterning, and conditioning, which commences, when a child begins to name things.... and their relationship with the essence of an object is lost. She is situated in her garden, a wonderful space, which has a Narnia feel to it. It has been developed over a period of months. On each visit I am growing more empathic to the little one's vision and journey. How do you decide on your subject matter? It decides for me :-) It is an internal process.. a beat begins , an upsurge of energy, taste , touch, smell.. ..all the senses are heightened. I feel gently led .... the internal process is partly rationalized by discerning these feelings, articulating them.... often first in words.... free associations help the fluency, patterns emerge.... ..often unexpectedly ..I love it ...a dance begins and I am led...lovingly on a new journey..... ....always different:) Many of my paintings depict richly detailed scenes and reflect my own deep interest in the lives of people and their work. I believe that..... Lives are not ordinary – all our lives and the way we live them and interact with our environment are important. I hold up a mirror to people and situations. Due to the sale of the barn..my previous lovely studio..I have had a beautiful new studio built in my garden.. I am invited out to paint on Tresco, the Isles Of Scilly; The famed sub-tropical Abbey Gardens, and wonderfully diverse geography of this sacred Isle always provide a rich vein of inspiration for me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CR8itsfqJ7A I spend a lot of time on Dartmoor painting the scenes and wildlife, and on and by the rivers Exe, Teign and Dart in Devon. In Cornwall, I enjoy exploring the coves and cliff paths, the beaches and Ports. Another of my loves is rural France. Initially invited over by Monaco Fine Arts in the early 90’s to paint the scenery of Southern France and Northern Italy; I developed a love of the area and spend as much time as possible exploring and painting in the wine regions particularly. I studied at Dundee College of Art from 1974.... finishing my postgraduate studies there in 1979. I won scholarships from the British Council to Budapest Fine Art Academy, and the Elizabeth Greenshield scholarship twice from Montreal, Canada. I have been exhibited at the Scottish Royal Watercolour Society, the Royal Watercolour Society, and the Royal Institute. Also in numerous galleries in towns across England, Scotland and Wales. My work has also been exhibited and in private collections in Europe, America, Canada and Japan. I have received sponsorship from Rosenstiel’s Fine Art Publishers, London, residencies at Grizedale, and Farringdon. My paintings have been published by Rosenstiel’s, Medici and Parnassus.
