“You Are Art, Everyone is Art, and Everything is Art.” Walking Meditation
“You Are Art, Everyone is Art, and Everything is Art.”
By Lisa Rasmussen MFA
This meditation is akin to the practice of Namaste. When I was in the Himalaya taking a journey up the mountain. All that passed would whisper and say to you Namaste and bow. They were honoring the divine light within you. For this practice look at the world as a big canvas. Leave all judgment at bay and proclaim and honor Art in everything!
Begin by taking a walk, a stroll in this world. Begin a mindful internal dialogue: Whomever you pass by, say internally “You are Art, then say I am Art.”
When you pass by an animal on the earth and in the sky, say internally to them “You are Art, then say I am Art.”
When you look at the flowers, the trees, and the grass say internally to them “You are Art, I am Art.”
When you meet a friend and a family member say to them “You are Art, I am Art.”
When look at Humanity say to the sea of 7.1 billion people from all corners of the globe internally “You are Art, I am Art.”
When look at the sky, the stars, the ocean, the Earth say to them “You are Art, I am Art.”
When feel the wind, sense something larger than yourself say to it “You are Art, I am Art.”
Then internally and externally say. “Everything is Art! To Be in the present moment is Art. To be in Eternity is Art. I am Art You are Art!”
Ruminate: True Art is when the Artist becomes the Art itself. You are the Creator of your own Creation. Art is Life, Life is Art. Continue practicing this throughout the day.
Do you feel a sense of radiance?
Do you feel a sense of awe?
