I choose a passage from Rainer Maria Rilke.
I’m sure he’s right, but it’s hard to learn to live in the flow of what life brings to us. I keep trying to be present, go with flow, like a river.
One must never despair upon losing something, whether it is an individual or an experience of joy or happiness; everything returns even more magnificently. What has to decline, declines; what belongs to us, stays with us, for everything works according to laws that are greater than our capacity for understanding and that only seem to contradict us. You have to live within yourself and think of all of life, all of its millions of possibilities, openings, and futures in relation to which there exists nothing that is past or has been lost.
― Rainer Maria Rilke, The Poet’s Guide to Life: The Wisdom of Rilke
Below I’ve created a sketch book to keep track of thoughts and ideas. Which only means that I’ve recorded them – it’s my visual brainstorming journal.
I invite you to take a journal out and write or draw some of your thoughts and ideas, be willing to brainstorm a bit.
For me, asemic writing is a bit like decoding our personal language, I see it like dream interpretation, we have our own way of understanding the symbols.
I sometimes use asemic writing in my art work. Many times it brings clarity to what the topic that I’m focused. For example the image below, the focus was on guidance and the asemic writing in black as the feel of a path or bridge – maybe you see something different.
Satu Kaikkonen, an artist/writer from Finland had this to say about asemic writing “As a creator of asemics, I consider myself an explorer and a global storyteller. Asemic art, after all, represents a kind of language that’s universal and lodged deep within our unconscious minds. Regardless of language identity, each human’s initial attempts to create written language look very similar and, often, quite asemic”
Many sages and writers have talked about endings are also beginnings. What a lot of people don’t want to talk about is the space in-between. There are words for that space such as liminal, transitional, or transition.
Something has ended or changed and you’re in the space of uncertainty and uncertainty doesn’t feel very good to most of us.
How do we get better being in the space of the in-between and not rushing the next steps?
Figuring out how to navigate our lives and being willing to be uncertain, it’s important to find out what works for us.
I believe learning how to express ourselves in a nondestructive way will help us to evolve to be more present and maybe even being comfortable in that awkward in-between space.
