April: Your Essence is Like a Box of Chocolates Part 3



I believe that OUR ESSENCEs are made up of four different parts: Heart, body, mind and soul.

“Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” This is one of my favorite life metaphors. Each piece of candy is filled with a different delicious flavor, just as life is filled with different outcomes, decisions and thoughts. Until you bite in and taste the filling under the sweet chocolate shell, you can’t really tell what you’ve bitten into.

In Paint Your Essence Workshops during February, March, April and June, we will make four paintings that will connect YOU to YOUR own “box of chocolates.” We will describe these four areas of your amazing life. If you attend one (or all four), you will develop a delicious sweet tooth!

We just completed seeing how our HEART’s Essence flows. We discovered our BODY’s Essence is beautiful. … Now we explore OUR MIND’s Essence! The mind is powerful…

Apr 23: Your MIND’s ESSENCE is Always Thinking

I saw this great video by Prince Ea on FB and YouTube. It is his version of the meaning of, “Row, Row, Row your Boat.” Creatively, it got me thinking in new ways. If we take our boat down the stream, we can make the choice of being the best that we can be, or not. We are always thinking whether or not our thoughts are conscious or unconscious and then we make choices off of those thoughts – all the good, bad and ugly.

What does your ship or boat look like as your mind rows down the stream? Are you taking control? Are you happily rowing YOUR boat? Shakespeare says, “Tragedy is a comedy misunderstood.” If that is the case, where are you laughing and letting YOUR dream, YOUR life be YOUR CHOICE consciously or unconsciously? That is what we are going to look at as we paint our MIND’s ESSENCE.

A brief description of the last part of the series:

June 4: Your SOUL’S ESSENCE is Living Life Fully

Metaphor for the soul: “The ocean is like life. It has it highs and lows. It comes in and out. The waves are like the ocean of consciousness.” Or Paramahansa Yoganada says, “You can consciously know (experience) your soul – your true Self – by meditation. And when you know yourself as Soul, you will have discovered the presence of God with you (as you).
