The art of living comes when you are in touch with the ‘space’ in your life. I often write about where you are in time and space. What time/ space form are you in…or are you formless? The art of living is realized when you are free from being trapped in the form of time and space, which is making your life a misery. No matter how hard you try, and how logical your life plan is, if that vital dimension is missing, you will still be creating misery because the things you achieve on the form level is only relatively true and valid, and will come to an end. There is loss and gain, and no matter what you do, you will never for long find that your life is fully working now. However, when you are in touch with the space, and although everything affects the world of form, the sense of heaviness and seriousness, which is ultimately fear, goes out of your life. When you have learned to experience the world from a formless state…you will understand and fully experience the art of living. Only from that place can you be in a state of ‘non-reaction’ when people and situations arise. In that space, fear flees. Respond when necessary…yes. But react…no.
The art of living is exactly that. The expression or application of human creative skill and imagination within life. Creating and experiencing life as it is. You know that this moment is all there ever is. So although we need to respond to day to day situations and people, we can see it and experience it through the formless filter. Now your responses are free of reaction, fear, anger, and irritability.
You will even find time to actually enjoy simple things in life, with yourself, and other like minded people who experience the art of living. Maybe you will go fishing, go running with a friend, create a fun meal for your family, or go roller skating at a skate park. Everything does not need to be ‘scheduled’ in. It needs to be ‘accepted’ in, however, at that moment in time and space when opportunity arises. This comes when we have learned to fully surrender to circumstances, our basic emotions, our natural feelings, and other people and things. So within your formless state of being, you will respond to life more creatively and joyfully. Whatever it is that keeps you in a place of acceptance, free of judgement, and free of attachment is where you will experience the art of living.
So put on your happy face and embrace the art of living! You are worth it!
