Soul Management: The role of the past!

Our spirits are the only authentic art
– formless, divine, and indestructible.


The past is so forceful.

It pulls us away from reality like the

strongest of magnets. But it is dead;

a dead weight; a burden.

The past belongs in works of art

so that it can be re-evaluated,


So that we can cease to identify with it

as a part of our ‘self.’

It liberates us and makes more space

for the present, for the ‘now-and-here!’

Tibetan Sand mandalas are painstakingly

created with an inner bow for each grain

and then abandoned to the master artist,

the weather. This creation is witnessed

by the universe, the visible and the invisible.

When we create art we can be assured

that we have contributed a little

of our unique minds and our spirits,

a little of what we consider we ‘know,’

to the universe which we can never ‘know,’

without expecting rewards or benefits.

This is real freedom.

After all, we cannot desire the unknown,

so we can give freely to it without any

attachments, any strings.

Desires – the future –

are repetitious and delusional;

and the past has been repeated

so many times that it is easy,

habitual, representing

no challenge whatsoever.

All the challenges lie in the present

as we navigate our lives as tenants

through breaths which we borrow.

Our spirits are the only authentic art

– formless, divine, and indestructible.
