The Universal Purpose

WP_20160322_3921.jpgSuccess gurus make a big deal about knowing your purpose or having a clear goal otherwise you will not arrive at your destination!!

The myth:

All gurus had a clear destination and had it all sorted out from day one!!


Most, if not all went through the self discovery exploratory phase!!

Then came the “aha” moment!!

So don’t beat yourself up if you don’t feel you know what your purpose is yet!

Carry on doing the universal purpose of love!

Live, love and shine, even if that is all you do daily, you are daily achieving your purpose!!

The Universal Purpose!

Live, love thyself,
Live, love thy neighbour,
Live, love, shine your light for all to see
Live, love, shine!

The Universal Purpose!
The Universal Dream!
The Universal Destination!

Hiding our light! Why?


We don’t take a light and hide it under a bushel.


We ought not to take our light, talent or shine and hide it away either.

But some of us do!



We’re afraid?!

But social anxiety, paranoia, fear and sheer panic attacks can be a real “physical” occurrence!

The root cause may often not be known, some may not even be aware this is happening to them!!

What are we afraid of?

Being mocked
Being laughed at
Being rejected
Being betrayed
Being found out

Being inadequate
Being adequate, but fear envy and jealousy from others
Being talked bad about
Being hated

Being praised
Being followed
Being stalked
Being promoted
Being successful
Being given more responsibility
Being loved



And the list goes on and on!!

It is unnatural to hide light

It is natural for light to shine

Light always wants to break through

Even the darkest clouds only obscure the sun momentarily

Even during an eclipse the sun is hidden but for a moment by the moon!

But wait:

The Sun doesn’t stop shining

Neither do any of us!! 😊

So we ought not be afraid to let through our light that constantly shines!

Fear vs Love:

It is said Love can overcome fear! 😊

Love, love, love! ❀ ☁ 🌈 πŸ’ ❀ πŸ’•πŸ˜

Not as easy as it sounds?!

Or it’s just that easy, it sounds too good to be true?! 😊

Live. Love. Shine!!! 😊😊

Art, Dada & Me 16/02/16

WP_20160216_8641.jpgFeedback from tutorial

I learnt today, it’s been 100 years since the Dada movement (1916 – 1924)

My Xmas cabbage as is (slightly stretched in word) was a winner over the processed pieces that evolved from it!

I was quite surprised that the initial photo with the holes in it contrasted against the wall sparked the most interest from my tutors and peers.

It seemed to portray different emotions depending on which way up it was placed, allowing it to be interpreted from different perspectives.

A comparison was also made to an evil eye montage done of John Major!!

I see the application of simplicity and that sometimes art can actually be the initial object as seen through the artist 🎨 eye.

This elicits varying responses from viewers therein the terms conceptual and minimalist art used to describe art.

So the “nonsensical” characterised by the dada movement is conferred with meaning and becomes art!

Stop… Summary!

WP_20160208_5857.jpgGuess what?

Do you feel now how simple it is to “sort your life out!”

Remember Rome wasn’t built in a day neither is “sorting life out in a day”

Life will never be “sorted out” per se, but is continuous steps of daily successes!! Like learning to walk, (crawl, walk, run) 😊

Btw, take as long as you like with each step! No one is keeping score!! I set variable time frames, one week, two months, but it may take a day, an hour a month, a year, etc!!

Over the next months, I’m going to look at purpose, focus, making progress, our mission in life, etc!!

Live. Love. Shine.

Stop trying to “sort” your life out (pt IV) Creative Storming

WP_20160204_6552.jpgNext easy tips

Creative Storming

Summon the creative genius within you!
Summon your creative powers,
We all have this within us.

Write something down, anything.
Do a “Streams of Consciousness” exercise to get yourself going! ie write whatever comes to mind.

You can do this on paper, on a phone, tablet, wall, important thing is to capture whatever is on your mind!! 😊


If you have specific tasks overwhelming you, write them down!

If you don’t know what to do, write down that you don’t know what to do!

Just write something, anything!

You can do this by yourself or with a friend for fun.

I call these:

Creative summoning & storming sessions!

You can also do:

Spider charting on paper or sketch book, etc
Or listings:
Write a list of things to do (The conventional “To Do” list)
You may write as many lists as you like in any order.

Remember to have fun with whichever creative summoning and storming tool you use!!
