Last week’s assignment from The Artist’s Way included writing and hanging this mantra:
So is the mantra a contradiction to this:
Matthew 16:24-26 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. (25) For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. (26) For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
What do you think? What does it mean to deny oneself in this context? Especially you, Amber (who is also working through this book), what do you think?
I have an opinion and will share it in a few days, but I wondered what other reactions there might be.
