Today's post is inspired by a Ram Dass quote.
"I often use this image, which I think I have used already, but let me say it again. That when you go out into the woods and you look at trees, you see all these different trees. And some of them are bent, and some of them are straight, and some of them are evergreens, and some of them are whatever. And you look at the tree and you allow it. You appreciate it. You see why it is the way it is. You sort of understand that it didn’t get enough light, and so it turned that way. And you don’t get all emotional about it. You just allow it. You appreciate the tree."
We've all been exposed to varying degrees of nurturing, light, connection, and yet, each of us has this creative life to work with and craft -- I'll be the first to admit that it is much more difficult for some than others.
The heart of my practice is helping to guide people toward their innate creativity and wisdom, no matter how bent, evergreen or deciduous.
