This question of what wants to emerge, can only be answered when I get quiet.
For me, being quiet includes resting, restoring and listening.
Emerge means, to become known, come to light. I think we all would benefit from asking ourselves the question what wants to emerge and that question requires us knowing how we feel.
Coming to quiet. It, also means giving myself time and energy to let my mind wonder. Whether it’s painting and or watching my pets. I believe one needs room – maybe a decision needs to be made or you’re tired and taking time to rest and restore is the most you can do that moment.
As Lao Tzu reminds us that;
and Rumi shares the importance of quiet.
Our willingness to face our pain – even if it’s just for one moment at a time, is a step toward a lighter bag, a bag that we all carry everyday. And a step toward beauty. When I paint, my intentions is toward holding sorrow and beauty at the same time as well as making my bag lighter.
