Words - Create

"Each day, our tribe of language holds what we call the world together. Yet uttering of the word reveals how each of us relentlessly creates. Everyone is an artist. Each person brings sound out of silence and coaxes the invisible to become visible."
Anam Cara
John O'Donohue
Prologue xv

'...coaxes the invisible to become visible."

What are you creating with your words?

Do you imagine the words you speak as power filled entities of magic, creating the world you inhabit?

Do you fill your conversations with filler words, to enhance the conversation?

Do you construct your responses or do you allow the words to flow from you? Is this true for you always? OR is it dependent upon company and context?

You may or may not have noticed how lazy some can be with their language, with their conversations, as if the editing or filtering or thinking has been switched off; for me - this is very telling of their world, of how they live, and why their lives may be the way it is.  They are may not be crafting their experience as they could be. Thoughts? 


How different would your world be if you believed your words did indeed build the world you experience?

How different could your world be, if you spoke your world into existence?
Speak your world into existence.

"Everyone is an artist."

Now, create.

Much love

Yes. It's winter. Resistance is futile

@karendarkinA gentle bit of unsolicited advice, stop wishing your life away.

This thought was triggered today as I saw yet another post on FB
wishing for summer to hurry up and get here.

Stop wishing for and "being ready for summer"

When we are in resistance to what is (winter), struggle arrives for us.

Winter is here.

In most parts of Canada or at least where I live we will be in winter until March,
with the last flakes of snow leaving us in April.

What if you sink into what is.
The cozy feel of the long deep nights.
The silence a fresh snow fall brings
The crisp orange and pink sunrises
The large blue sky when the sun is shining as the temperatures drop even further

What if you created an ease about your day
What if you had a stillness in your body which would mimic the earth,
be with the nature around you

What if you became the next level of quiet
What if you expressed your stillness through wonderful words,
either through what you read or through your own writing.

Now is the time for soft blankets, fuzzy soft socks, deep nourishing broths,
candles to lighten and soften the darkness.

Now is the time be quiet

What if you followed the season, as a being of the earth. Followed the rhythm of nature.

What in you could use stillness before the blooming time called spring?

What in you could use a bit of hibernation?
What needs quiet?

Be in what is
Be open to what is preparing to bloom
Nurture it with the darkness the earth settles into

Celebrate the light and rest in the darkness

I begin. Again.
