Tales of a Double Virgo
why are we waiting?
this has been bouncing around
in the brain of mine
for some time.
the fact that sooooo many of us
wait until things are just so
to settle IN to creative juiciness.
i have to feel just so.
the house has to look just so.
my space has to be arranged just so.
the freaking everything.
has to be just so
before we say
‘aha! it’s time to create!’
i’m gonna share a secret.
DON’T WAIT TILL EVERYTHING IS PERFECT
CAUSE IT NEVER WILL BE.
creativity is a necessary nutrient.
one that -truly- we wither & die without.
when i go for a stint without it <UNintentionally of course>
i start to feel a certain way.
maybe it’s angst?
or a feeling of BEing offbeat with my life.
a hollow type feeling
that feels like it needs filled with something from the outside.
& when i fill with those outside fill ers
i may even feel worse
which keeps the cycle of:
alive and kicking.
do you know what your creative expression is?
when you think about it, it will feel warm & fuzzy
<tho often Guilt is present with it if we haven’t given it the time of day for a while>
then look around and see if you have what you need for your craft.
writing is easy.
pen & paper OR computer & fingers.
a few years ago
i made a commitment to WRITE NO MATTER WHAT.
no matter how i felt
no matter who was home
what the house looked like
no matter how much other stuff needed attention
i trained myself to Create Anywhere Anytime No Matter What Chaos Circled Within OR Around Me.
this was and IS a powerful practice indeed.
instead of -Waiting for Inspiration-
which i used to do
i learned to call it in.
wherever i was.
it also helps us feel that we are not always a cork in the hurricane filled sea.
that life doesn’t have to be left to random
-whatever is meant to happen-
it helps us connect CONSCIOUSLY
to our world
all that is.
so i come back to the question-
why are we waiting?
WHY THE FUCK ARE WE WAITING?!
to connect on this level
to be nourished on this level
to learn to call IN presence.
know what you love to create.
write. color. draw. knit. sing. make music. paint. build. grow. dance. & on and on forever.
AND DO IT!!
fuck the dishes. the stack of laundry. the bills. the calls. the emails. the endless list of stuff.
feed your spirit. connect with you.
nourish your depths.
you may find the drought has been so extreme
that you can’t stop creating
once you start…..
commit to it.
daily. weekly. whatever feels right.
the divine energy
is waiting to be expressed thru you
that unique flavor
that ONLY YOU have.
