“Man is made or unmade by himself. By the right choice he ascends. As a being of power, intelligence, and love, and the lord of his own thoughts, he holds the key to every situation.” ~ James Allen

As a spiritual mentor, part of my job is to challenge the people I work with to consciously observe their BS (belief system) and challenge any current beliefs they hold that are keeping them stuck in a mental prison of their own making. The moment is quite interesting to witness when they discover that they, and they alone, hold the key that will set them free. The key, of course, is their ability to choose and then choose again if necessary.

Have you ever thought of yourself as a piece of living art? If this question seems abstract, consider the two photos below as they may help put it into perspective. I took one of them while touring the many galleries at the Vatican in Rome and the other while roaming the streets of Geneva. Your perspective of both photos will determine your answer to the question I posed above. Just for a moment go with it; explore the photos.

Why Problems Exist

All spiritual masters say to resist nothing. Life holds various difficulties and tests, or problems as we would like to call them. The vast majority of these so called problems are illusions of the mind. Problems come in various forms, be it the rent we have to pay, the debt that needs to be repaid, injury, disease, poverty, humiliation, and so on.

The answer to any problem is simple: go within. Every problem is an opportunity in disguise. Every problem holds within it the very seed of enlightenment. Although this is difficult to gauge, it is true.
