Life is the art of the universe. In other words, each life has a purpose for living. Consequentially, making a vital contribution to the story of humankind as we create our unique colours, like an image painting itself or an individual thread in a beautiful tapestry.
Humanity is the sum of spirit, soul, and body. These comprise an intricate weave of wisdom, courage, love, justice, forgiveness, temperance, and transcendence. Qualities required to live an optimum life.
Let us, for a moment, look at Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man. It depicts a nude man standing inside a circle and a square with arms and legs drawn in two positions. The sketch thus opens a dialogue as a work of art, a mathematical diagram, and the spiritual aspect of humanity. Amongst other things, the illustration indicates that everything is connected to everything else.
Interestingly, ancient thinkers, beyond trying to measure the proportions of the human form, had long invested the circle and square with symbolic powers. To them, circular shapes were linked to the cosmic and the divine, while the square represented what was earth and secular. In other words, humans fit in both worlds and could serve as a way to study the perfection of the universe.
Another school of thought, namely Gestalt psychology, looks at the human mind and behavior. For instance, a major part of this therapy is awareness, follow-through, and taking responsibility. Therefore, the ultimate goal is to remove inauthentic layers to reveal the actual self and be fully alive in the here and now.
In conclusion, we are made of dust and will return to dust, and everything in between is love. To be human is mystical and multifaceted and should be approached gently and mindfully.
