“You were put on this earth to achieve your greatest self, to live out your purpose, and to do it courageously.”
Have you ever felt that there is a mystical power in your life that sometimes guides and cheers you up at the most dramatic crossroads of your life? Do you sometimes feel as if you were receiving messages that you feel like intuition? I believe that we have guardian angels assigned to protect a person, a group, a kingdom or even a country.
The concept of the “Guardian Angel” is clearly present in the Old Testament, Judaism, and New Testament; in The Catholic Church, Anglican Communion, Eastern Orthodox, Lutheran, Methodists, Reformed and Presbyterian, Islam and even Zoroastrianism - many religious perspectives accept and confirm the existence of angels. What unique unity!! Can you think if any other subject, that has such universal acceptance for such differing perspectives? I certainly have not.
I follow and agree with the logic as Aquinas put it, "…on this road, man is threatened by many dangers. Both from within and without, and therefore as guardians are appointed for men who have to pass by an unsafe road, so an angel is assigned to each man as long as he is wayfarer."
I'd like to introduce to you, my two angels. How do I know they are mine? They just called to me. When I was working at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, I always felt their existence and then I met them. They are so different but to me, they complete each other.
Swiss- German painter PAUL KLEE created ANGEL APPLICANT in 1939. He was a influenced by expressionism, cubism, and surrealism, and in my mind is fragile and imperfect. This angel seems doubtful that he will ever reach a heaven.
THE ANGEL by Flemish painter GERARD DAVID, from his "The Annunciation" triptych, 1506, is graceful and calm, but each movement of his body and his facial expression conveys a supernatural power. He is obviously a messenger of the highest spirit.
Have you met your angel yet?
