Creativity and Uncertainty!

I can feel the strong pull to welcome creativity into my life, particularly when plagued with the virus of uncertainty. The touch of creativity is not a matter of what I do, but how open I am to what is doing me.

Today, I remembered to yield to the feel of the morning chill, as I helped free the trees of their tangled branches. Lost in the moment; uncertainty gracefully yielded to indifference, followed by a sense of unwavering certainty. I could clearly feel the wind's tender support, particularly when the focus of attention was free of a personal point of view.

    And yes, Carol, simple and vitally important. Thank you. Such a small thing to ask in order help control a virus for the health and safety of all. How often to we get the chance to do something that could save someone’s life?

    Thank you for sharing such a simple and essential truth Carol. I really appreciate that Dr. Fauci is a "wax on, wax off" kind of guy. Now, is always the perfect time for such simple wisdom.

    Here’s a poem from Dr. Anthony Fauci:

    Wash your hands,
    Wear a mask,
    Watch your distance,
    Wash your hands.

    With all love and respect, Namaste, Carol.

    Uncertainty, the Not Knowing, l’m in a place today with my boys home for a 2 week visit, having flown here, that I needed to find a poem of serenity, as Keshav wrote about the Feel of the morning chill… here is George Lisi:

    follow the trailing fingers of the wind across your face
    lean close listen to the voices
    of the silver messenger that has always spoken truth to you
    for ages you have wandered under the impartial sky
    lean closer listen
    and follow the long wind all the way back
    to the primal home the welling light
    cradled deep within the heart.

    Being at peace with uncertainty for me is simply letting go (which isn’t an act) and allowing what is to simply be. That is living with certainty that all is as it should be because it is what it is!

    When doing energy work uncertainty seems to be the name of the game. How far will this rabbit hole take me? What will happen to Joe? When I am willing to look past the uncertainty the freedom of that space is incredible. After last nights session with Keshav the laughter was laughing me. I couldn’t help but to see all of my surroundings as a celebration.

    Uncertainty may be the fallow ground of creativity, with room for anything in its undefined chaos. Namaste.

    Uncertainty has a strong pull for me. But when “uncertainty gracefully yield(s),” behind that (is) the sense that it (is) not to be taken seriously. For me the “sense of unwavering certainty” is that all is well. That nothing means anything. That life is to be experienced, not controlled. The act of creativity can be anything I am doing in the moment, as if for the first time. There we take back our power.
