Quote for the day
If you persist in trying to attain what is never attained (It is Tao’s gift), if you persist in making effort to obtain what effort cannot get, if you persist in reasoning about what cannot be understood, you will be destroyed by the very thing you seek. To know when to stop, to know when you can get no further by your own action, this is the right beginning!
Beginning the new week, Monday.
Action and plans that were made while I forced to be quiet while dealing with the Flu from Hell that took me out for more than a week flat. I worked on art and wrote down ideas about what I am doing, where am I going, what is my mission statement today, as is. What are my goals, now…short term and long? What the heck do I really expect from this life? I also had time to go through the back storage room of the studio, with my manager and a fresh set of eyes.
They made me sit and watch them bring out to me the contents of the room. The cumulative whole of an entire years worth of work, that no one has ever seen. Because I took a years off from the shows, galleries, agents, Mega marketing in general of my work went down to a static level, while I spent a year…Just Working.
The experience of sitting there and watching art come out that I had forgotten I had even done, was like Christmas and having a fresh band-aid ripped off real fast when you are not looking.
I felt proud each time I heard from the back room (the place is small) OOhhhs, and wows look at this one, and they would bring it out and my fever crazed brain would be all excited and trying to recapture the moments of each creation.
Looking back over the work, seeing the growth I have made by becoming incredibably focused on what I really want in this life.
My wants and need list turned out to be pretty damn short over all.
I just want to be happy.
That looks and feels like the words I write everyday in this blog, the tears spilt, the lessons learned, the pain, the joy, the absolute scared crapless about not knowing anything, and doing it anyway.
My life is my ultimate work of art.
I am the ultimate canvas, and I will work on my masterpiece until I stand in the clearing at the end of the path.
I will never be done growing, learning, changing.
I am grateful for the time to think, melt down, re-group even if it took the freaking Flu to make me stop and look, no… not look, but SEE
the growth, the change, the joy, the pain.
It is MINE,
world this is me.
Raw & radiant,
bring shades, I am still on my
way, this is my mark, this is my proof of change, this is my life, this is a real human, working, feeling, breathing, heart beating, pain having, just as ordinary freaking human as all of you reading this. I am HERE. I am ReaL, I am passionate about LIVING.
All of it, bring it Universe. I am living arms wide open.
I have the courage to face it, myself & the truths of my life, and the conviction of faith to carry it all out.
Bring it Universe, bring my chaos, my change, my plans set into action, my goals realized, my failures, my rejections, my glory in finding the important connections.
Let each of my heartbeats today count, for the actions I take bring me what I want, what I need and simply put all I need is to work, love and continue to grow, learn, share that experience.
For I am The Change.
I am The Chaos.
I am that hope, the bird that sits in the tree of the secret inner garden, and never stops singing at all.
Be well today.
