Every Human is an artist
Every human is an artist, a storyteller with a unique point of view.
When we see ourselves as artists, we no longer feel the need to impose our views on others or to defend what we believe.
We know that every artist has the right to create his/her own art, their own story.
–Don Miguel Ruiz
This is a great message from our very own contemporary Toltec Mexican shaman, Don Miguel Ruiz. So often, we get carried away with our own stories. Stories of how miserable, sick, pissed we are, what a rotten world this is, etc. Or, more violently, stories of our own religion, region, nationality, sexuality, that we try to impose on others–or else, I’ll shoot you?
