52 Weeks of InfiniteFulfillment: Week 25-Greatest Abundance Deepest Lack

‘The human form is only visible in Drift II from particular viewpoints, emphasizing the role of the viewer as an active participant in determining what is actually seen.’ …from the information tablet for Antony Gormley’s Drift II-2007 Installation in the Vancouver Art Gallery’s Current Exhibition: ‘Visceral Bodies’

Drift II, Antony Gormley

In visiting this exhibition a few days ago, the above quote stayed with me in reference to much more than the sculpture about which it was written.  It stopped me in my meandering and had me take notice and acknowledge again the expression of consciousness that is EveryBody and EveryThing.  It had me remember that life itself – every life – includes all that there is expressed uniquely by each one.  So why then, in all this abundance do humans see lack?  Whether it is a missing of sustenance or shelter, learning or objects, love or benefits, how does our participation determine the lack that we see, in whatever degree we witness it?  Why do we not perceive abundance always?  Would moving slightly change the view?  Would a tiny shift in participation alter what is seen?  Is abundance inherent right there in the lack we perceive?  Is it waiting patiently for us to move just enough to alter our vantage point?  Is it possible that what we see as our deepest individual lack inherently includes our greatest individual abundance?  Is one or the other visible simply by the viewpoint we take?

This week’s living question – our question to live is integral to the revelation of each person’s QuintesssentialYou Blueprint and realization of InfiniteFulfilllment:

Where is my viewpoint of lack hiding my view of abundance?
