When all I have been learning, doing, and striving toward comes together I will know it. It will feel like ease, and passion, and joy flowing from a single grounded source – my own heart. That moment feels as if it may be upon me with this newest exhibition going up June 6th. There are many reasons for this convergence, but only one conclusion that I can draw – my life seems to be coming together because I have done the hard work of living deliberately. A life lived from heart-felt intention will always bear the sweetest fruits.
Like a river with it’s fluctuating pace dictated by ever-changing weather patterns, I have had absolutely no control over the timing of the events in my life. But what is under my complete direction is what I have chosen to harvest from these circumstances. Culture, family, and my personal experiences over 58 years have given me much to choose from. The details of that life, however, do not matter as I have come to know that we all share the same basic desires regardless of how they manifest in our lives. When we drill down past the specific of our deepest desires, we all yearn to feel the same things forming in and around us: Love, Peace, Comfort, Freedom, and Belonging. When we are feeling “without” any one of these basic human needs havoc can ensue in a person, a society, and in our world. This could be a UNIFYING ETHIC, which appears to be absent in this moment in time, a compass point by which a new world can be built. And I believe – each of us can play a part – RIGHT NOW – in it’s building.
Our shared world has shown us the best and the worst of mankind. Claiming our shared values and coming into an understanding of these EXPLICIT UNIVERSAL YEARNINGS is the first meaningful change we can each make as individuals. Taking inventory in our own lives and setting an intention to honor your own deepest heart-felt yearning from this day forward can and will bear the sweetest fruit in your life, and the lives of those around you. And so on, and so on, and so on…
