Spirit tells me that creative passion is a dance,
as much as a joint venture, between intellect
and emotion, each directing the other to music
they are co-creating as they respond to each other,
in a continuous blend of unrehearsed movement.
Wow! That sounds seductive.
It is, intentionally so.
Then, to bring it all back to reality …
It never left.
How does such a …
Way of life?
Wouldn’t it be exhausting?
In what way?
In relation to spiritual development.
It is the only way.
Even for a Bodhisattva?
Especially for her, or him.
Then, in serving others more
while serving ourselves no less …
More or less of what?
Personal and community care.
Intellect provides us with means
to learn to understand what needs
to be done and what we can do
to satisfy that need.
Knowing what and how to contribute
is totally unproductive without
desire to inspire us to act on
the awareness intellect provides.
Yang and Yin?
