Did you know that you have a funnel of creativity, A veritable pipeline to and from the unlimited creative source? It makes me laugh when people tell me how much they would love to be a creative person.
Just above your head there is a funnel shaped receptacle. The funnel has the capacity to receive all of creation known and unknown, mysterious and mundane. As you dance away your day your funnel is receiving whether you discern it or not. Your thoughts, and inspirations seem to pop like dried corn from inside your brain but that is not where it's coming from, your brain, it's being poured into you from the source. This is where you come in. You are the neck of the funnel, the narrow end, and with every breath you are deciding what to create with the masses of stuff coming toward you.
We've heard in every way possible that we can have anything we want if we just think and do the right things. It's not, as they say, rocket science but does require throwing out everything you've thought to be true and tossing it to the curb on an ongoing basis. You don't have to think and do the right thing any more because awareness of the funnel is the only action necessary. The great Sufi poet Rumi (1207-1273) said it like this; out beyond ideas of right doing and wrong doing there is a field, I'll meet you there.
It's not an accident that life is hard. It's not a cosmic joke or punishment that shit potentially hits the fan everyday. You're not a victim of happenstance but rather the tangible matter meant to problem solve creatively with that swirling roiling endlessness of chaotic energy. The chaos is neutral, neither good or bad. You will know your true desires by what you let through the neck of the funnel. Is it fear, control, self loathing, resentment you choose? That's fine! Is it Love, art, joy, servitude you choose? that's fine too!
You have the choice of being a constricted fearful, controlling bottle neck or a dynamic moving, accepting gateway for rich experiences.
boomerang: are you a bottleneck or a gateway today? if you garden, cook, hug, draw, write a list, buy a gift, take a picture you are honoring creativity. If you overthink, fight with a loved one, push too hard, do things that you don't want to; you are constricting the flow of information. Both valid choices.
