I recorded this podcast with the deepest reverence for all of us who dare to engage fully with our creativity in this life. Hands down, there is nothing else like it.
I believe our creativity, our art, is the truest expression of our soul’s desire to offer love and light to the world. That who we are at our most raw and true comes out in our art and that kind of brave honesty is the greatest spiritual gift we have to give (and receive) during our time here on this planet.
As it happens, Glory Begin is one year old today. This warms my heart. If you have been here for the full journey or part of it, I am beyond grateful to have your energy and light in this space. Your light is my light is our light.
Of all the things I have learned along this creative journey (and, sweet mother lover, there have been a LOT of lessons) , there is one thing that has surfaced for me over this past year that stands out as unequivocally most important.
It’s a truth that is absolutely essential to keep at the forefront of every creative thing we do. Without it, our creativity is stifled, strangled, stunted and mangled, as are our spirits.
In today’s podcast, I share this secret I hold so dear. The one thing that allows me to keep going, the thing that fans my creative flame time after time after time.
Interestingly (surprisingly? not so surprisingly?), toward the end of the episode I also share the one thought about creativity that completely breaks my heart. Stay tuned for that – it’s a biggie.
Listen in and see if this resonates for you:
So, there you have it, guys. The single most powerful thing I’ve learned about the creative life and continuing to do creative work with dignity, grace and passion.
Now over to you: Do you have a kick-ass lesson, skill or something the creative life has taught you as you’ve grown into the artist you are today? I’d love to hear about it in the comments . . . no pressure or guilt trip or anything . . . buuuuut did I mention it’s Glory Begin’s first birthday? And your thoughts are like gifts to me-– errr – us?
I mean. :)
It’s pretty amazing what we can learn from each other so please don’t hold back. Especially if you brought cake or champagne or anything.
In that case, seriously:
DO. NOT. HOLD. BACK.
I truly hope this has served you and your exquisite, talented, creative soul well.
Sat Nam, angel. Thank you for your gorgeous, gorgeous light.
