People are alive to the degree that life has been granted to them and alive to the degree that he has granted life to himself and others. Or stated another way, grant life to yourself and others and life begets life.
We are here…we are alive this very moment. Look around and grant that same life that is in you to your possessions, appreciate those things, take care of those things that take care of you. Grant life to the community you live and work in, saying to yourself, ‘Hey, this is a great place to live and the people here are wonderful!’ The town and the people in it eventually will conform to the life you give it to that degree. Just think what a difference it would make starting with just idea.
This day grant life to yourself, to your family, to your home, to your possessions, to each other in the community…And the degree you grant that life into people and things is the degree of aliveness it becomes. Funny how things work out that way…but try it…do it each moment. As an artist and illustrator, I’ve got to breathe life into what I’m drawing or doing on canvas or it just won’t communicate to others. If I can’t do that, then to that degree, I have not accomplished my goal as an artist. You don’t have to have a degree from a major art school or to have studied under someone to create…just imbue LIFE into it…desire it, feel it, put emotions in it…and it’ll communicate and be alive to that degree. It’s amazing what things can happen from granting life to yourself and others.
So go out there and be your great self-GRANT LIFE! Help, support, play with, imagine, uplift, act with kindness…It is something which we can ALL do…and it is relatively simple.
