In the beginning the lines we draw around our lives serve to define and differentiate us, and then over time they come to limit and isolate us. To experience the relationships we were meant to experience with God or other human beings we must hug those lines and even be willing to cross over and color outside those very same lines.
We often draw lines in our lives, setting boundaries all in the name of trying to keep ourselves from being hurt. In the end they keep us from experiencing all that life as to offer. Free will allows us to be the artist of our lives and to create a life’s work that is uniquely us. We only reach that place of breakthrough when we move past what is comfortable, what is known, what is expected and into the absurd. We must allow the colors to run, to mingle and mix with the colors of others creating new hues and shades.
