From the lifting of higher awareness, the looking within the heart and raising it’s wisdom to the surface, comes the insight to fulfill what is our second dharma; service. This is where clarity of intention can be refined. A journey in which you know where you are headed is much more pleasant than one that is fogged by directionless-ness.
Clarity, knowing, defined intentions fueled by vivid childlike imagination births the inspiration and empowerment to surge ahead. The idea that you can do a thing, do it well and do it always excites the cells and this knowing what you want magically manifests the highways and byways that lead to it.
But you must listen closely and spend time in stillness dropping your attention heart-ward. From this, create a discipline that not only builds the foundation upon which your dreams can rest, but also roots you firmly in what is happening now. This moment is the force which creatively fingers potential like a sculptor does his clay.
Only this moment, not the moments we spend wishing to be elsewhere or wondering what might have been.
As creative as you are, the being looking back at you in the mirror, the one that feels and tries, and bakes fragrant pies was built by choice and thought and action and emotion.
Know this and dig into what is right now. Wrap your arms around awareness like two lovers lunging into each other in a flowered field and never let go. And prepare! Paint if you are a painter, speak if you are a speaker, play if you are a player. Become a master and let the process of mastering guide you.
Unanswered questions can only be answered by remaining soundly in the moment through preparation and opportunities only come when we are ready.
