About Joseph

Stepping into the Canvas is about taking the first steps into the Canvas of Life. It is said that God is the creator and nature is His Canvas. In a world of technologies, distractions and light-speed evolution, we are left to remain in the dark. Truth is laid before us, falsely, by our collective whole. You are invited to step out of the ordinary and into the extraordinary. We are not meant to be suppressed and controlled, fearful and miserable, alone and scared, hateful and destructive. No, instead we are meant to be free. Free to Love unconditionally, creating the life we were meant to enjoy. Instead of divide and conquer, we shall come together as one. My intent is to share my thoughts in this blog, so that it provokes others into a self-discovery of themselves. While I have found happiness in my life, my hopes are to charge my viewers to see a different side to their current situation. It is said there is a spiritual solution to every opportunity, why not give it a try. I am a Father, Husband, Friend and Brother, a Healer, a Teacher, and a Student. Enjoy studying energy works, self-realization, Love in Action, and just the nuts and bolts of how things tick. Please feel free to look around and Share away! Much Love to you and Peace Profound...Joseph

Love Thyself

There is a recurring theme I am feeling in the air as of late. More and more people discussing importance of self-love. What does it mean? Why is it important?

We often love our neighbor as ourselves, but what about when we are worn in need of love? What about loving oneself as we do our neighbors?

Take some time out of the day. Maybe 20 min. at the start of the day? Multiple trips outside, to break up the day? Long walk in nature? Nice bubble-bath by candlelight? Or what about daily words of encouragement?

This is me talking to myself in the morning:

Good morning dear friend. I greet the morning sun and chirping birds. Thank you for all you do for me. I know you are tired, stiff and wow, where did that pain come from, but today is a new day and I look forward to kissing Earth with gentle kisses of Peace and Love.

Be aware, there may be speed bumps throughout our day. If we trip or get caught in a speed trap, pause for a moment, returning back to this moment in time. Know that I love you and we are Loved.

Throughout our day look for things to be grateful for. If there is a person with squirrel energy or a bull in a china shop, look for qualities that allow them shine. 

Seriously…read this, ponder it and Love Thyself!

Tired, Tattered, Seafaring Man

What of the tired,

Tattered,

Seafaring Man?

Steady as she goes,

No port on horizon.

Sing to the seas,

Sing to birds.

Time passing by.

What of the tired,

Tattered,

Seafaring man?

Surrounded,

By thousand generations.

Brother sets,

Follow Sisters stream across the water.

What of the tired,

Tattered,

Seafaring man?

Steady as she goes,

No port on horizon.

Sing to the seas,

Sing to birds.

Time passing by.
