It’s been awhile since I’ve written. So excuse me for a moment while I brainstorm.
To say we are living in an interesting time is probably the understatement of the century. This is a time where there is an ever increasing amount of pushing and pulling over many things. Balance is shaky and chaos seems to be the order of the day, at least for the moment. I liken times like this to the breaking up of an ice sheet that has long held many things frozen. This melting of ice is the tremendous release we’re all feeling as it unlocks potential for the undiscovered and unexplored. We all deal with is in many different ways. On a personal level for me, it feels like the clearing of a stuffy head from a really bad cold that’s held its grip on the body for a long time.
Finding the way
Like many musicians, I’ve been trying to find ways to express through music what I see and feel. What is coming out is something I can’t explain. When I put my lips to the didge, there are sounds that come out that I didn’t expect. It’s almost as if the deepest farthest cosmos is trying to speak through me. For all I know, perhaps it really is. It’s quite strange but at the same time comforting. Why? Because it reminds me that I’m an integral part of the Kosmos. We all are. And that can be nothing but beautiful and Loving. You see, all sentient beings really are all an expression of Love and we’re no exception. We can express that love through our own creativity. Think of how fortunate we are to be able to make art, music, dance and design. No other being on this planet can do this quite the way we do. I often think, if we spent half the time making art, we wouldn’t have the time to make war with each other. Our minds would be preoccupied with expression of the universe. Actually, I think our minds would give way to our hearts to do this and that can’t be a bad thing.
The bottom line is…..
I believe we have so much more potential and that we’ve barely scratched the surface. Why else would we have been given the gift of creativity? It’s been a long held dream of mine to start teaching people this. Teaching that each one of us has some capacity to create something magnificent whether it’s a piece of music or a knit cap. Even better, I wish to build a sangha of people who would be willing to explore their potential, could bounce ideas off of each other and collaborate. It would be a group of people who never thought they could be creative and it would transcend borders and differences. Encouragement and support of each other would be the order of the day. We would laugh, love and spend time together as well as spending time with nature and see what comes out of it. We would be INSPIRED.
So, if you wish, take a moment and let me know what you think of this little brainstorm. Am I crazy? Most likely. Am I passionate about this idea? You bet. In my estimation, a little craziness comes with passion and I Love that. Would you be willing to be crazy with me?
With love from your didge servant,
