Becoming Master Artists

 We do and can challenge our conditioning and affect what we become.  Conditioning influences us, it doesn’t determine us.  Each of us has the capacity to choose and grow and remake ourselves significantly, but not completely.  We can change within human limits.  We can’t do whatever we want or choose — we can only do what we can do, which is a great deal.  Trusting myself including to swim upstream helps me find joy and satisfaction in challenging my conditioning.
