    I did not sculpt the figures into the marble,

    I released their form from the rock

    sculptor (among many of his artistic talents)
    Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564)



    unkown (a great art master ???)



    It may refer to his carving of the “Bound Slave” and
    the “Dying Slave.” Here is a paragraph quoted from
    one of the many webpages on Michelangelo:

    Two other superb statues, the Bound Slave and the
    Dying Slave (both c. 1510-13), Louvre, Paris),
    demonstrate Michelangelo's approach to carving. He
    conceived of the figure as being imprisoned in the
    block (Third Captive). By removing the excess stone,
    the form was released. Here, as is frequently the case
    with his sculpture, Michelangelo left the statues
    unfinished (non-finito), either because he was
    satisfied

    with them as is, or because he no longer planned to
    use them.

    I love that quote.

    **INSPIRATION**



    The Dream You Are Living


    The dream you are living is your creation. It is your
    perception of reality that you can change at any time.
    You have the power to create hell, and you have the
    power to create heaven. Why not dream a different
    dream? Why not use your mind, you imagination, and
    your emotions to dream heaven?



    Just use your imagination and a tremendous thing will
    happen. Imagine that you have the ability to see the
    world with different eyes, whenever you choose. Each
    time you open your eyes, you see the world around you
    in a different way.



    What you will see is love coming out of the trees,
    love coming out of the sky, love coming out of the
    light. You will perceive love from everything around
    you. This is the state of bliss. You perceive love
    directly from everything, including yourself and other
    humans. Even when humans are sad or angry, behind
    those feelings you can see that they are also sending
    love.

    If you treat an individual as he is, he will remain as
    he is. But if you treat him as if he were what he
    ought to be and could be, he will become what he ought
    and could be.
    ~~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

    Everything is laid out for you. Your path is straight
    ahead of you. Sometimes it's invisible but it's there.
    You may not know where it's going, but still you have
    to follow that path. It's the path to the Creator.
    That's the only path there is.

    recognize that you know it, and when you do not know a
    thing, to recognize that you do not know it."
    1. what you want
    2. what you feel

    "There is an Indian Belief that everyone is in a house
    of four rooms:
    A physical, a mental, an emotional and a spiritual.
    Most of us tend to
    live in one room most of the time, but unless we go
    into every room
    everyday, even if only to keep it aired, we are not
    complete."

    "I've often wondered, what if all of us in the world
    discovered
    that we were threatened by a greater power from outer
    space from
    another planet-- wouldn't we all of a sudden find that
    we didn't
    have any differences between us at all?" said Ronald
