Life Is Creating Us
Within each of us lies an infinite playground, a dark night filled with shooting stars, and a vast sea of mystery. Life is creating us as we are creating it....
The creative current must be allowed to do what it does, moving in a continuous swelling and receding, spiraling, pulling and lifting manner. When we let go of the past and the future and surrender to the present moment, we begin to experience what the unconscious imaginal sea of ourselves wishes to say.
This is easier said then done, because often the images that rise from our depths can to the bobbing surface ego of ourselves, be frightening and threatening. Our ego is all about being in control and our society is all about categorizing, boxing up and shipping off. But the wild nature of ourselves is more like a fruit tree that keeps giving.
Cultivating a relationship to my own creative voice has been one of the most precious practices I have committed to in my life. It feeds all other parts of my day. Making space for creative play can be challenging amidst the business of life, but this creative space, where emptiness sings, is where the fullness we long for resides.
