Creative Passion as a Dance of Yang and Yin

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.

And environmental?

Yes.

Intellect provides us with means
to learn to understand what needs
to be done and what we can do
to satisfy that need.

And emotion?

Knowing what and how to contribute
is totally unproductive without
desire to inspire us to act on
the awareness intellect provides.

Yang and Yin?

Yes.

To Satisfy My Soul

Spirit tells me to

Continuously seek to learn

How to think, what to think, and

Why do I think what I do, and

At the same time, to seek

To learn how to care for

Myself and others, and

To care for all that is, and

To express with my life

My care for my world and

Myself, by being what

I need to be, and doing

What I need to do,

To satisfy my soul.

 

Each in our own way

Spirit tells me that we each develop awareness

In our own way and in our own time.

There is no reward for those who

Finish first, for nobody ever finishes.

Thee is no end to what

What we can learn if

We want to.

We each satisfy our individual need

To learn whatever, according to

Personal interests,

At any given time.
