“How does our humanity limit us,
and how do we get free from habitual ways of thinking and acting?
How do we self-realize and quietly access our eternal essence?
What is meant by “all is chosen”? What is meant by “choice”?
How do we awaken to conscious choice?
It is my hope that the symbolic signposts to those answers
lie within the poetry and paintings in this book.”
~ from the Introduction of All Is Chosen, by Laura Basha, PhD
All Is Chosen is a handmade artbook, based on a series of eight paintings painted over the last 10 years, each representing an archetypal image of what it means to be a human being. It is also a compendium of a particular focus of my life’s work, the spiritual underpinnings if you will of my transformational coaching over these last 35 years with thousands of multi-cultured, multi-generational, multi-gendered people from all walks of life.
All Is Chosen is also inspired by this time period in our human history. We are currently confronted on a global scale by the rise in consciousness of the possibility of making choices from love as opposed to making choices from fear. What we are mostly seeing through our media is the stronghold of fear influencing choices that are taking a tremendous toll both on our humanity as well as on our climate and planet. Fear is strong, yet Love is stronger.
To support this influx of Love infusing choice, such that the possibility of Love awakens and takes deeper root in our human awareness, I created this artbook to be a legacy of my understanding of truth. As more of us continue choosing from Love, we can radically change any previous negative historical trajectory to one of healing, possibility, and peace.
My intention and my hope is that the images and words within its leather bindings will inspire and awaken in the reader the truth of who we really are: magnificent beings united as One through the evolution of consciousness.
