have you ever been around a man or a woman
who knows who they are?
they exude beauty…
because they are in love with life
and are in life loved.
It’s so much more fun to actually do things rather than just be an observer in life
getting your hands dirty
only to find that you love the smell and the feel of the dirt under your fingernails
Cooyright 2016 Mary Rensberry
I am free to be. Free to do.
I am free to give and take.
I am free. Free at last.
To smile. To love. To enjoy the moment.
With myself or another.
Free of it all and freedom to create once again.
Postulates are like thoughts or expressions of prayers-for oneself and others.
Successful prayer or postulates originate as being thoughts brought on by observation. Both need to be positive and carry the vibration of love, admiration, and helpfulness in everyday actions.
The natural law has been said many ways at many times:
Change your thinking, change your life.
What you resist, persists.
What you focus on, brings that to you.
The Christian bible verse of Philippians 4:8 states the same thing: Postulate or think on those things worthy of thinking on-the pure, lovely and good.
Here’s another viewpoint that states the same:
“The more you can invalidate the amount of resistance which the physical universe makes, the more success you are going to have with it because the more your thought will expand to embrace it. Thought, belief, faith—these things are expansive things. …
“It’s awfully simple. If you just looked at life this way and said, ‘Why, I don’t see anything that—offer me any trouble. No obstacles around here that I can see. As far as putting forward my ideas, as far as even thinking up ideas, as far as carrying forward in life at large, I don’t see any obstacles,’ you wouldn’t have any.”
— L. Ron Hubbard

Since I just published a book on the attributes and potentialities of the human spirit, then I should know what ability means or what it means to be able. Right?
The ability or inability to do something lies in, perhaps, the very way we go about doing something. If, for example, I want to paint a picture and do not know what a color, hue or a canvas means or what it means to use shading, or other such art terms, then my painting will reflect it to that degree. The doingness is dependent upon the understanding of art terms. The more I know about a subject, its terms and definitions, etc, then the more able I am. There is an understanding, that with practice and skill, I am able to paint a picture or a better picture. Maybe one that draws the attention of others. My art then would communicate something to the audience, like you.
That goes with the marketing of books, too. If I don’t have a clue to what goes into the marketing of my book, then that makes me less able. It is a learning process, no doubt.
I have some more homework then, don’t I? How to do more promotion and on my list of to-dos. Some expert help has been solicited. Thanks Rick Lite!
In the meantime, won’t you check out the newest arrival of I AM SPIRIT?
Hope to hear your thoughts, comments or questions.
I AM Spirit is a 64 page book of fine art paintings and inspirational words regarding the abilities and skills of who we really are as humans; a spirit living in a physical body. The colorful paintings by Junai Meijer are captivating and infused with the richness of life. Mary Rensberry’s uplifting words encourage higher values and virtues. Each letter of the alphabet is represented by words that portray man’s inherant nature. This is a very aesthetic and inspirational work done in collaboration between author Mary Rensberry of the United States and fine artist Junai Meijer of Amsterdam, Netherlands.
Yes! A valuable product is now on the market…and one that I’m very proud of. It’s been in the making since 2009 and happy to see the birth of it on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
I AM Spirit is a spiritual book without being religious. It crosses all barriers to forge what’s common in each of us, our Spirit. I hope that you’ll find it inspiring and beautiful, too…the illustrations are from a prolific artist from Amsterdam, NL! Junai Meijer and I collaborated on this amazing project since its inception to book format in October 2016.
Reading the book and enjoying its pictures is like a long drink of water for a thirsty traveller…Enjoy.
