Light Is Generous
Movement is a prayer that invites consciousness to land in specific, heartfelt ways. Nothing separate from life, simply an example, a mode of expression. How we express through gesture, touch, thought, word and deed is an art form above all else.
Every expression of spiritual or artistic practice has recognized this within the pulse of the human heart. Each sacred discipline aroused by the temporal hope that there will be reconciliation of purpose by giving birth to that which we value, love and cherish.
I am fascinated by the ways in which these hallowed practices take root and grow, as they unfold, as they become the beautiful array of clarity, calm and connection within us. When a part of us awakens to the belief that there is a source greater than ourselves we recognize we are apart of a grander design.
We come home to a presence that holds our belonging with the world.
In moments of doubt we can be reassured of our own vitality in the quest for knowing and embrace the unknown by reestablishing direction. Aligning with our own humility in the face of uncertainty to develop the tenacity to stay with that which calls us forward.
This practice of Opening, to invite the deeper mind to step forward, requires us to begin a process of surrender. To soften. To let go. To forgive. To loosen the tether of the rational thinking mind and drop into the less known thresholds of the heart - It Is Here, that BEAUTY dwells and where the LIGHT of Intellect lives.
To Begin is almost always difficult, frightening at times, for surrender is certain death to the ego child. As resistance surfaces, like the mirror for that which fear has unconsciously built, Bravery becomes a choice whereby we decide stay with our courage and redefine the art of our BEING here.
How do you experience surrender? What role does surrender play in your artistic / spiritual practice?
I would love to hear from you.
