As I was walking in the woods, I was contemplating this phase of life. How WEIRD this phase is, how confusing, how miraculous, how blissful, how unusual. I'm a pretty straight-arrow person, so to find myself immersed in the woods and listening to the energy is ... uncomfortable. When I think about where this all leads, how it opens me up to ridicule, or judge it for being frivolous, it makes me shrink in vulnerability. And then these words came to me:
Do not look for others to validate what you are doing. They are not doing it, so how could they possibly give validation? It's like asking yellow to validate blue. They are both true, and wildly perfect for their places. Simply, and faithfully, relay the messages. A reporter from the woods.
A further thought from Julia Cameron, author of The Artists Way: You are responsible for the quantity. Great Creator is responsible for the quality.
And then, I saw the heart. Hearts in nature is my jam. And a perfect punctuation to a plaguing fear. Literally a message of love.
Wow... thank you!
