Authors Note: What follows is something outside of the realm of what is usually expected from the articles I write. Contrary to what most must believe, my life is not filled with only activism, suspicion, and distrust, but that is the portion of my persona I must constantly push to the forefront to progress The Liberty Beacon Project effectively. What I present to you here is a small (onetime) peek into my personal thoughts outside the mind numbing realms of politics and tyranny. I sincerely hope you will enjoy it!
The Embodiment Of An Angel: An Exercise of Faith
I constantly think about, and try to perceive within my limited scope of understanding just what an angel would look like. Today I set myself the task to draw my concept of an angel, but had a major impediment in that I have only a limited artistic ability outside simple representations.
Eventually I settled on the concept that angels are supposed to be a manifestation of faith in all that is good and beautiful in this expansive universe we all exist in. So I made a decision to attempt something I was not truly convinced would succeed, I would to consign my task to “faith”.
I took a soft and comfortable cloth and wrapped it across my eyes in a fashion to limit all external vision. As I felt around the table top for my pencil and paper, an eagerness, or more accurately a sense of excited purpose swelled in my mind.
I carefully centered the paper it front of me and I began to think. At first I struggled to block out all the interfering noises of life happening around me, but eventually I settled into a semi trance of inner focus and began my experiment.
I pondered deep within my consciousness what a true angel would manifest as, beautiful yes, intelligent, sure, and I buried myself in deep perspective. Purity of heart and soul, yes this is a given. I began to feel my hand moving, gliding across the paper as if guided by a benevolent force. Graceful, of course, kind, yes, compassionate and charitable, without doubt. Now my hand was moving rapidly, but not with nervous motion, instead sweeping across surface smoothly as if with purpose and intention. Joyful, why not … and a smile that could melt the heart of the most cynical of all Gods creations.
I could picture all of these traits individually, but no matter how much I tried to focus, they would not coalesce into a clear image in my minds eye.
It was at this point I realized my hand had stopped moving, and try as I may I could not reconnect with my inner thoughts. It was seeming as if the task I had set for myself was complete, and I knew this without understanding how.
Curiosity exploded in my mind … I had to see just what I had been possessed to create through my exercise of faith onto this medium of graphite and parchment. I was truly not expecting much.
As I slowly removed the blindfold, clearing my sight, I was surprised, even dumbfounded, but also extremely overjoyed, because there laying in front of me was a perfectly detailed image … of you!
You are indeed an Angel.
