Writing is a ritual.
Each time stepping up to the page was like an at bat. Each time was a new opportunity for an increased awareness. Each moment was a chance to speak your truth.
Writing, like any art involves training sessions. Much like athletes and martial artists gain agility, writers gain wisdom. This was the way of moving through and within the moment. Training. The way to be free through expression.
Bruce Lee talks about achieving authentic expression through the uncensored practice of the Way of Yourself.
Not lying to yourself.
Being what you are. Saying what your truth is.
Becoming empowered to take charge of and move through your resistance.
What power could this create for your life?
Then there was this fear thing.
The ability to hesitate, the ability to back down.
Inner resistance, refusing evolution.
The impulse of the organism towards comfort and security.
Can you move beyond it?
Could you write yourself free from the chains that bound you? Could it be that you no longer needed looking after?
No one else can do this for you.
The peasant and the pheasant both understood that their fate would not change by remaining idle, or playing idol.
To unleash the bars of the pen, one need only take up the pen.
Taking charge of the unspeakable, and giving it birth into the Now.
This was the art of expression, the fully realized human creativity.
In language it was hard to quantify certainly; with the intuition it was hard to grasp within the body. By noticing sensation, and then pairing this capability with our own conscious words, we were able to tap deeply into the source of our being.
What a freedom.
What a free-domain. To be able to speak your Truth.
“If you always put limit on everything you do, physical or anything else. It will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.” -Bruce Lee
In a time when the Truth is marketed as lies, sayeth the sages of old, our age would be a time of great upheaval and change. This time has now arrived, and we many are here to witness it.
The doublethink runs thick.
The things that are being told as lies are taken as truths.
The truths we feel in our hearts are labeled as lies.
A paradoxical age indeed.
Whatever your art is, the World desperately needs you to express it, Authentically!
Take charge of your Destiny, work with it, not against it.
