Mission I AM Possible

Note: To cue my original no-expenses-spared rendition of the theme music from “Mission I Am Possible, please press here. In this performance, I’ll be whipping up some “music” with spoons–😎. There are still a couple of seats available. Now, let’s begin:


Just prior to entering this incarnation, “each” of us might imagine that we were standing on a high diving board, preparing to take another plunge into the realm that is referred to as Earth. Why would we do this time and time again? As a method of refinement. In a manner analogous to rubber automobile tires that pick up bits of gravel, grit, and even nails, human beings pick up the energy of certain tendencies–some that serve ourselves and “others” well; and some that make suffering a certainty, rather than a probability. The trip, in which we actually never go anywhere, allows us to learn what serves a higher ideal, and what belongs to the “person” in the lowlands of Earth.

From my own experience, and knowledge gained from books about spirituality, I believe that the soul (and sole) purpose of our journey–at least from a human perspective–is to find our way back HOME; in other words, to recognize our essential nature. We Are of God; therefore, our essential nature must be God-like. The key challenge that’s related to this purpose relates to dropping, or at least questioning, our murky human assumptions long enough to allow the Light of Truth to shine through. As long as we cling to a false ‘i’-dentity related to name and form, the likelihood of knowing our true nature is slim. Suffering “as” the human is the one natural solution that provides opportunity for expansion out of the prison in which we have figuratively been placed. This is not literally true; but it certainly feels that way.

How will we realize if we’ve arrived at knowing God, our essential nature beyond name and form? Trust me on this, if you will, the “realization” is unmistakable; but don’t expect to see signs of IT as an object. The Bible states this clearly in Luke 17:21: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.” Another way of verifying if we have arrived is that most, if not all, of the fear, pride, concern, and arrogance related to performance–for example, of a rendition of Mission I Am Possible–has been jettisoned with the illusory person. This is the meaning behind the well-known, but, perhaps puzzling expression: “to find yourself, you must lose yourself.” When we lay down our false assumption that we can–ever–possibly be the “person,” we open ourselves to recognition of our Oneness. Our mission, should we choose to accept it, is to find That.

Dare to dream (and care for one another).

With heartfelt regards,

    1. Hi Linda,

      I felt a strong intuitive nudge to reach out to you (and Hunt, if this appeals) to share information that I’m sharing on my YouTube channel. My study of spirituality and the law of attraction has taken me to a much deeper knowing of our essential nature than when we visited here several years ago. Here’s the link, in case the information can be of service. Wishing you a wonderful day!


  1. Soo awesome! I looove how you can convey a profound, spiritual message through such delightful fun. This ‘religion’, everyone would love to join. πŸ€—πŸ™


    1. Thank you, Monica. It’s just part of the way “i” relates to this “stuff.” I like kidding around with it–and not everyone gets that. Thank you for your understanding. I have some more videos along the “fun” nature–“Art’s Silly Soap Opera Shenanigans”–but I hesitate to continue it. Time will tell. I was hoping that humour might be a way of drawing the attention of people who might not look, otherwise. Here’s the link, in case you’d like to see more. I value your opinion on this. P.S. Guess who ordered your second book this afternoon! πŸ™‚ Looking forward to reading it.

      1. Much appreciated, Art! 😊 I tried the link to your Shenanigans, but it doesn’t seem to be available anymore.


      2. Sorry about the confusion, Monica. That’s why I’ve labelled the videos under a playlist called “Art’s Silly Soap Opera Shenanigans,”–hopefully as a tool to draw persons who might not otherwise be attracted to the investigate our true nature. The soap opera gets sillier.


      3. Hi Monica,

        I hope that your day is going great! I received your second book of poetry and musings today; and I’m excited about reading it. I hope you won’t think this too personal, but did you like the experience with the publisher? I’m seeking a publisher for a novella that I wrote that reveals Truth.

      4. Hi Art, Thanks again for supporting my artistic endeavours! πŸ˜ƒ I hope you’ll enjoy the musings, most of them I post here.

        Pls feel free to send me an email at culinaryfocus@gmail.com

        It’s much better for a convo about the publisher. And I’ll be happy to share with you my experience with Adelaide 😊
