I am rooted, but I flow.
If you hear a voice within you say ‘you cannot paint’, then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.
Make it a habit to ask yourself: What’s going on inside me at this moment? That question will point you in the right direction. But don’t analyze, just watch. Focus your attention within. Feel the energy of the emotion. If there is no emotion present, take your attention more deeply into the inner energy field of your body. It is the doorway into Being.
Maybe you are searching among branches
for what only appears in the roots
Now that my house has burned down, I have a better view of the sky.
