Creating the Life You Love

“To live the life you love, love the life you have and imagine a future that draws you forward.” – Alex Grey

We are all artists of consciousness creating our “pictures” of reality. Neuroscientists concur, every bit of what we experience is a figment of our imagination. Authorship of the story of our lives is in our hearts, minds and hands. So, how will we most positively and powerfully interpret the circumstances of this moment to best inform and guide the precious life we have ahead? With the raw material of past experience, in the mental factory of our thoughts, our future is sculpted with the “chisel” of our worldview. To create the most evolutionary thoughts and ideas, the Craftsman-of-our-Being accepts mentorship from the divine imagination, source of beauty, truth and goodness.

“Kiss of the Muse” Drawing by Alex Grey

A life we love is filled with savoring our unique experience of the world, and instilled with a sense of purpose by contributing to a community. Developing personal connoisseurship of the beauty around us opens our senses and sharpens our visioning skills. No matter how difficult life’s journey, harnessing the passion of our Soul’s mission through a creative project leads to profound joy.

This Sunday at Art Church, we will contemplate our life as the aesthetic adventure it is.

Explore with us the skills and tools in the Art of LIfe.

— What is the “anatomy” and characteristics of a “Love-able LIfe”?

— When is it an advantage to be the cause of any “trouble” that currently exists in your life?

— What are the “deals” and “deal breakers” in an ideal life?

— If money and circumstances opened your life to unlimited possibilities, what passions would you pursue?

— With unlimited possibilities, what would shift?

— What effects, if any, do prayer, spells, hexes, charms, and protective talisman have on outcomes and circumstances?

— What steps can you take to fulfill the higher love you are called to manifest?

Come ready to write and draw from the wellspring of your imagination in service to the life you love.

Internationally renowned for paintings that “X-ray” multi-dimensional reality, Alex Grey interweaves biological anatomy with psychic/spiritual energies in his visual meditations on the nature of life and consciousness.  This groundbreaking artwork has reached millions through Grey's six books, extensive reproduction of his artwork, and dozens of key-note addresses and exhibitions from Tokyo to Sao Paulo to Moscow to Melbourne. Committed to art that celebrates oneness, Alex and Allyson Grey, his wife and companion of 36 years, co-founded the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors, (CoSM -- cosm.org), a church celebrating creativity as a spiritual path.  CoSM, once a 12,000 square foot spiritual/cultural center in the heart of New York City, now flourishes in the tranquil setting of a 40-acre interfaith spiritual 65 miles north of New York City.   

Allyson Grey is an artist whose paintings have been exhibited and sold internationally.  Co-founder of the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors,  Grey is a community leader with a Master of Fine Arts degree from Tufts University. She has edited and co-authored over a dozen books and journals, lectured widely, and has been an educator and muse to artists for over 30 years.  The symbol system in her paintings represent an essentialized world-view comprised of chaos, order and secret writing.  Allyson is the wife and partner of internationally renowned artist, Alex Grey, and the mother of accomplished film actress Zena Grey.
