The Self Leader Secret
The Lost Paradise – part 1 of 2
As I sat at my desk looking at the picture I had just drawn it suddenly came to me !I suddenly realized what this picture truly meant: Now those of you that I have had the pleasure to meet with either face to face or over the phone or even in the many chat rooms on the great world wide web, know that I can sometimes really get way out there in my thoughts .
But this is something I have thought about for a couple of years now, I’ll explain to you what I see in this picture here in a few minutes.
First let me say, the picture was first drawn as a idea for a cover for a book I am thinking about writing, so the picture is just another way of telling a story about my own journey into a new way of life. A way of life that I had never really taken the time to stop and see for what it truly is !
You see the title of the picture I call Lost Paradise has a hidden story in it and that story is as follows : as you look at the drawing, look to the top of the picture. You see the great mountain wall. To me that mountain wall is the separation from what I once was and where I am now going in life with a very special bunch of friends from all around the world!
Now remember this, when I was taught to draw I was taught to draw from the top of the page down, the reason for this was to keep your drawing neat and clean but this picture was one that has come to me through bits and pieces over a year ago.
I started it in June of 2008 and just got the whole picture this year. This may be due to the people I had come into contact with just a few months ago who where very gifted in their own talents and arts. These were business minded men and women who have a dream that will not only change their own lives but the lives of so many others in the years to come !
How did I have the pleasure to meet these special people you ask ? Well for the last few years I have spent many long hours on the world wide web chatting with some of them who have helped me see a part of myself that some would not truly understand about themselves!
You see, we are all connected in one way or the other to each other. Through actions and events beyond our own comprehension (Now there’s a big word I would never have thought about using a few years ago).
These friends were at a gathering we’ll call it a meeting of like minded people !
Anyway they showed me what can happen when you get a group like this together in one place for just one weekend! I know that when the weekend was over, none of us really wanted to leave!
We were taught new things about the world around us and better ways to live our own lives. We even had a chance to get to know each other a little better and left with a new hope in the world around us. That is where I figured out where I was meant to be, with these fine men and women .
In part two I will describe the picture Lost Paradise and give you the meaning of the hidden story
