― Pablo Picasso
Our ability to construct mental images and view our lives is an every personal fluctuating responsibility. We often miss the illusive plot changes because we are so intently focused on the desired outcomes. Our lives are grand conversations, however we sometimes flounder in the presence of profound sight. Perhaps notice in your own life, what do you focus on? How do you use the world around you to construct meaning?
Pablo Picasso said, “If I paint a wild horse, you might not see the horse... but surely you will see the wildness!” As we look to artwork, quotes, or any artistic musing we begin to notice the lens of creativity opening our interpretative sight. What if we viewed our life as one of these great masterpieces?
As I consider Jim's message, I can't help but wonder how my ability to see has either expanded my experiences or contracted my involvement with life. Our physical and spiritual sight fashion the way we engage with life. If we are working on a specific project, it might be more appropriate to have precise zeroed in sight, but if however we are driving down the road, it becomes important to expand our view so that we can notice the other traffic around us.
Today I invite you to take a peak into your own life. As you examine your sight, how do you see yourself engaging with life? Are you so focused on one aspect of life that you are living out of balance with other aspects of self, or perhaps you are examining your life with a wide angle lens and you miss the everyday miracles in your midst. The best news is, there is no right or wrong answer, there is simply an awareness of expanding or contracting.
