Creating the Life You Love
“To live a life you love, love the life you have and imagine a future worth drawing you forward.” –Alex Grey
We are all artists of consciousness creating our “pictures” of reality. Every bit of what we experience is a figment of our imagination. Since co-creative authorship of the story of our lives is in our hands, how will we most positively, powerfully interpret the life we have and create this precious life? Through the filter of our own unique sequence of circumstances, we sculpt our life with the “chisel” of our world view.
Today at Art Church we will reflect on the beauty of our mental creations and recognize that we are the authors of the story of our life. Part of creating the life you love is taking time to see how you are manifesting your Soul’s purpose thereby tapping the Soul’s infinite joy. Looking at our mental creations as artworks, we see thoughts as psychotronic devices, windows on new realities, prayers, spells, hexes, charms, and protective Talismans. How can our lives fulfill the higher love we are called to manifest?
A life we love is filled with our appreciation of the world and we are also appreciated by others. We refine our connoisseurship of the beauty and blessings of life and develop visioning skills. Our thoughts are sculpted in the mental studio. To create beautiful thoughts and ideas, the Craftsman in the studio of our Being accepts mentorship and guidance from our Soul Angel.
Explore with us the skills and tools in the Art of LIfe. What is the “anatomy” of your “Love-able LIfe”? If money and circumstances opened your life to unlimited possibilities, what passions would you pursue and what would be different? Come to Art Church ready to write and draw from the wellspring of your imagination and consider the life you love.

Internationally renowned for paintings that “X-ray” multi-dimensional reality, Alex Grey interweaves biological anatomy with psychic/spiritual energies in his visual meditations on the nature of life and consciousness. This groundbreaking artwork has reached millions through Grey’s six books, extensive reproduction of his artwork, and dozens of key-note addresses and exhibitions from Tokyo to Sao Paulo to Moscow to Melbourne. Committed to art that celebrates oneness, Alex and Allyson Grey, his wife and companion of 36 years, co-founded the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors, (CoSM — cosm.org), a church celebrating creativity as a spiritual path. CoSM, once a 12,000 square foot spiritual/cultural center in the heart of New York City, now flourishes in the tranquil setting of a 40-acre interfaith spiritual 65 miles north of New York City.
Allyson Grey is an artist whose paintings have been exhibited and sold internationally. Co-founder of the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors, Grey is a community leader with a Master of Fine Arts degree from Tufts University. She has edited and co-authored over a dozen books and journals, lectured widely, and has been an educator and muse to artists for over 30 years. The symbol system in her paintings represent an essentialized world-view comprised of chaos, order and secret writing. Allyson is the wife and partner of internationally renowned artist, Alex Grey, and the mother of accomplished film actress Zena Grey.
