To The Precipice

IMG_2486

A writer’s job is to entice the reader to the precipice of their understanding…

Nobody can make us jump, but it is the artist’s job to bring us to that decision point – that precipice of understanding, where we somehow become qualified to jump, even for a few moments, into joy and beauty and spontaneity and freedom and love.

Artists and creativity offer us this opening that penetrates the envelope of conditioning and our usual expectations, and catapults us into a way of seeing and being that knows no limits other than the ones we clutch to our breast and insist upon.

When we jump off the cliff of logic and conditioning, we find our own wings of inherent joy and understanding… and loving kindness to ourselves and everything else.

Being part-and-parcel of the Divine is not only a blessing, but a powerful responsibility.
