When we allow the “Beast”– or energy of Creativity– to flow unimpeded through our bodies and mind, without mentally editing or judging what gets expressed, that energy seems to expand and gain momentum and power, revealing a Consciousness that is infinitely wider and more inclusive than the ego identity that we have become so familiar with.
I want to thank Jessica from “Living on Purpose” who made a comment in one of my posts regarding how we fear most our own power. This thought is also beautifully reflected in Marianne Williamson’s quote,
” Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us….”
Thanks Jessica, for your kind thoughts and encouragement. Yes, I too believe we fear most our own power. Is it, perhaps, that we are afraid of losing our sense of self if we were to unleash the subterranean “beast” of creativity, that we would not be able to put the “genie” back into the bottle once we uncorked the giant within?
I think it’s quite amazing how tenaciously the ego fights to maintain the illusion of separation and smallness, that it would actually struggle to keep itself locked in the nightmare! The ego is like the prisoner that prefers the dank air of narrow captivity over the inspiration of Freedom. And in its own self-imposed exile, it desperately grasps for life and security by fighting for the ephemeral dreams of happiness that everyone else struggles for. We enter and go through the motions of life in hypnotic stupor, identified with the glittering baubles of desires that remain ever beyond our reach, and that distracts us from the experience of our Higher Selves, the very Source of all dreams and desires!
My hat’s off to the Divine Trickster that’s been able to pull that huge “wooly” over the eyes of humanity for so long! But I also believe that the power of our hearts’ awakening is no less strong than the hypnotic grip of dark struggle.
As we awaken from the dream nightmare of limitation and fear, we connect with the River of Consciousness that manifests the unique gifts that we were meant to give birth to through the instrument of our lives. When we tune in to the Divine Song that is already playing within, when we allow that vibration to express in our lives, we are awakened from the slumber of ages!
The veils of separation are falling as we individually acknowledge and take responsibility for the gifts of Spirit that are wanting to be born. There are unimaginable realms of Beauty and Love that were meant to be expressed in our lives, and all that is required for that to happen is an understanding that the Creative River flows of itself the more we step aside and allow it Sacred Space within!
