“Learn how to see. Realize that everything connects to everything else.” ~Leonardo da Vinci
Patterns. Design. Sequence. Links in the chain. Pieces of the puzzle. Signs…they’re all around us. In fact, we exist in patterns and sequence from our body parts down to our DNA. Life consists of seasons. We live in cycles of birth and death. The ebb and flow of the tides are cyclic. As night drifts into day and day back into night, we experience times of creative activity and periods of rest and rejuvenation just to begin another creation.
Like phases of the moon we are not always fully seen. We don’t cease to exist…we merely don’t choose to use all that we are. In fact, many don’t tap into their source because they have never experienced a connection.
Have you ever noticed a crack in the sidewalk? In that tiny space life emerges. We are much like that…possibility lingers in the void.
We are each born with a deep desire to create. To create what? Something from nothing? Anything from everything? The choice is yours…what is calling you? Have you ever felt that churn of creating in your stomach? The pulse of birth in your fingertips? Awareness arises when one is sensitive to energy and in tune with the physical body. Creation from this yearning is the claiming of spirit.
Anyone can learn a skill set whether it is writing, painting, photography, sewing, etc. What stirs the creator deep within and drives him forward shows in the result. The moving experience to the viewer is the difference between a product and a piece of art. For example I will use my favorite artist and painting. I’ve seen many imitations of Van Gogh’s Starry Night. While I find the reproductions beautiful, none excite and fulfill me quite like that of Van Gogh. Have you ever felt this way about a painting or a song?
Have you ever felt that sensation that travels from your abdomen to your throat, like a yearning for escape? Perhaps that is your spirit in search of voice. Let yourself be heard.
