Do the Work That Matters.
I was burning so hot on all ends I couldn't see straight. It was this great sadness in my heart that needed to be shared. So I made more art...I was driven, it was good. But the pain was still there and in some ways the pressure was growing even stronger...
I think I speak for at least a few thousand million of us here on earth when I say:
*We'd like to see and know more of who you really are.*
What is the song your spirit cries to be sung? What holds you back from your song? What holds you back from exploring and expressing this Creative Self?
Your heart and soul burn hot. Follow that trail inside to the creative expression your Spirit longs for and you might find something good. Vital. Basic. Necessary... –let these exchanges of personal and creative exploration open the relief valve to your creative furnace. Open the floodgates. Break the flow. Open the words that long to sing in conversation...
with the one you love,
with all of us.
just keep on waiting for the right time.
Two weeks later it was all sorted when we had the conversation we both knew we needed but were not yet ready for, and everything got so much better. The relief valve to my burning heart was opened and that steam was let out... I still burn hot. The pain is there. But at least I can see straight without that deep sadness and frustration clouding my existence.
Now maybe I keep taking this creative fire and let it burn right good through these hands. Keep the momentum of this passion flowing and channel that into the work.
This is freedom to me.
"Every once in a while—often when we least expect it—we encounter someone more courageous, someone who chose to strive for that which (to us) seemed unrealistically unattainable, even elusive. And we marvel. We swoon. We gape. Often, we are in awe. I think we look at these people as lucky, when in fact, luck has nothing to do with it. It is really all about the strength of their imagination; it is about how they constructed the possibilities for their life." —Debbie Millman (Brain Pickings)
What holds you back from exploring and expressing your creative self? What is the song your spirit cries to be sung? What glorious worlds will your song lift you to today?
Are you ready yet? Just do the work, do the work that matters. And enjoy.
And in recognition of those who are "doing the work", and for the love of Mercury, I'm doing a sale on the Soul-Fire Code (33% off—here). It's never too late -- do the work that matters.
