True Self, New Self
Have you ever actually wondered who you are? Have you
considered creating a self portrait?
But where do you start? Perhaps you might follow the
pathway of Rembrandt, who created probably more self-portraits
than any other artist in Western art.
Rembrandt was a searcher---a seeker of the truth about himself, a
man without vanity, who revealed himself openly to us. However,
it is his eyes, no matter what his age that draw us with their depth,
their strength, and their eternity.
Have you ever truly looked at your eyes? Not glancing around
or about them, but into them? Your eyes are the key to yourself
or according to an ancient saying, “the windows of your soul.”
Think of your life as a work of art, an ongoing masterpiece. For
the way to discovering your new self is uncovering your true self.
