*****************
Here is the quote that inspired the work:
Wherever you stand is holy ground.
Wherever there is life, the ground is holy, and life is everywhere.
The question is, are you in it?
While money can lead you to feel rich, feeling rich can lead you to money.
While you may be very careful about what you pay for with your money, you are probably less careful about what you pay for with your attention.
How you spend your attention affects your life far more profoundly than how you spend your money.
Your attention is the strongest currency at your disposal.
While you may believe that all kinds of things have to happen before you can have what you want, you can have it quickly by recognizing you deserve it.
Who would most like to know you love them today?
Who would you be if you dropped your complaints?
Whoever you think you are is smaller than who you really are.
Why get rich quick when you can be rich now?
Why live in a soap opera when you can star in a great love story?
Why mess up your career with training?
Why wait for your ship to come in when you are already on it?
With but a shift in perception, what you thought was miles or lifetimes away may be but feet and moments away or right in your arms.
Words are the least part of communication; energy and action speak far more truly.
You do not need to import greatness from another; you just need to act on your own.
You already know.
You always have enough energy to do the things you love.
You always have enough time to do the things that Spirit would have you do.
You are doing better than you think you are.
You are in integrity when the life you are living on the outside matches who you are on the inside.
You are lovable not for what you do.
You are lovable for who you are.
You are not desperate, so don't act as if you are.
You believe that if you had more time, you would have more peace.
But it's the other way around: if you had more peace, you would have more time. Creating more time is not logistical, but attitudinal.
You can tell what you believe by what you get.
You can afford to be generous because you have access to an unlimited supply. You can be helping many people, but if you are not helping yourself, you have missed the one person you were born to heal.
You can never love too much.
True loving only multiplies itself and returns to bless us many times over.
You can tell what you believe by what you are getting.
You can't get a right brain answer to a left brain question.
Ask your heart, not your mind.
You can't get to heaven by putting other people through hell.
You can't prepare to be great, because you already are.
You can't worry love.
You cannot achieve perfection.
You can only discover it.
You cannot fix yourself because you are not broken.
The more you try to fix, the more you find to fix.
Only wholeness heals.
You cannot gain worth by achievement.
You can only claim it by self-recognition.
You choose, you cruise.
You deserve only love because you are only love.
You do not need to gain or import powers,
for you were born with infinite power to create.
You simply need to claim and use the power you already own.
You don't always need to know beforehand.
You don't have to make anything happen.
Just line up with what wants to happen and let it.
You don't have to make someone else wrong for you to be right.
You don't need to beg for what you already deserve.
You don't need to get anyone else to agree with your truth.
You just need to live it.
You don't need to make good things happen.
You just need to let good things happen.
You don't need to punish yourself for love.
Or sex.
Or money.
Or your past.
Or anything.
You have more options than you recognize.
You know where you belong.
You need not wrestle for your good.
Your good flows to you most easily when you are relaxed, open, and trusting.
You only live once but it's forever.
You own what you own not by money or force, but by your love for it and your inner connection to it.
You were born a genius, and you still are.
Claim it and it will work wonders for you and the world.
You were born to enjoy your life, not repair it.
You will be paid for your services in proportion to the depth of your passion to offer them.
You will find truth more quickly through delight than gravity.
Let out a little more string on your kite.
You will help more people through your delight than through your suffering.
You will not get rid of your pain by glamorizing it.
You will not solve lack by getting more.
You will solve lack by recognizing abundance where you once saw lack.
You're not a realist unless you believe in miracles.
Your attention is the strongest currency at your disposal.
Whatever you invest it in will yield significant returns.
Your core being is your pure being.
Your entire world could open up with one expansive thought.
Your fears of oblivion are unfounded.
Your first and greatest contribution to world peace is your own.
Your future isn't what it used to be.
Your gift to the world is not what you do.
Your gift is your happiness.
Your history is not your destiny.
Your inability to adapt is not a sign of your weakness, but the strength of your inner guidance to remind you where your passion lives.
Your issues do not retard forward movement; they propel it.
Your journey of relationship is an adventure to reunite with yourself.
Your thoughts do not create reality, but they do create your experience.
Your thoughts do not create reality.
They either permit it or not.
Your true power lives in acting with a whole heart.

While working on this painting, I was going to change the mouth, and my kid came into the studio and said,
"Mom he looks like he is saying his prayers or something..."
Hence the name and the mouth staying the same, because I think so too.
I was going to give him two eyes to, but it seemed more right for him to have only one visible eye, the other is in shadow, the eyes being the doorway to the soul. I wonder myself what is behind his eyes, what he can see that I can not, or will not.
He is whispering to the heavens, to the Gods of love... prayers for the living.
This is the Theme Song for BAD! Kitty Art Studio until further notice:

I hope you like!
I have stared more new work already, I'll share more soon!
Have a great day

WOW your post was just what I needed to hear today. The painting is very Zen like. Cool. Like the Fairy Tree too. And yes, I'd love to buy one of your painting, but as I mentioned in todays post, I'm still waiting for that winning lotto ticket! Great song. Happy Monday BK!

I wonder what invisible string pulled your little girl out there at just the right time. And she knew exactly what to say--kids, they tell the truth.

Beautiful meditative painting, Heather.
