Inventing in the Open Spaces
by expecting things to be different
than they are.
By thinking if something goes wrong
that something is wrong. Wrong is normal.
Accepting this is a strange kind of freedom.
An openness to possibility comes.
Things have been going wrong
for many thousands of years
and we have always known it would be hard.
It has always been so.
Look around. Can anyone say,
it is easy?
Yes it is often good. Really good.
But easy? When did easy become
so popular and for sale in ten easy steps?
I long for easier days just as much as you.
And I also know what our
Forefather and Foremothers
knew. This world is in need
of love and a heapin’ dose of fixing.
We are the hands of God
fixing it, breaking it, fixing it, breaking
it open once more.
When we can choose to look upon what is
as ‘what is’ instead of bad or good
we can free ourselves from the prison
of invented meanings about things
we really have no clue about.
I surrender knowing.
Or needing to know.
I embrace being in the space
of not knowing.
My attachment then becomes
to create a field of hope
regardless of what the reality
is, while knowing what reality is.
By reality I do mean,
the hurt child, the warming ice,
the tragic corn and the invention
of corporate interest cloaking
the truths which hurt all of us.
There is another reality at work in us,
it is the one that is always true,
and yes it is Love.
Love for what is
right now, just how it is.
In this acceptance,
strange freedom is ours.
I’ll take it.
When we accept
what is, we can dream
the sacred dream that is ours.
I don’t know how this all works.
I just want to know
how to make the openings
open, so I can invent
in the open spaces.
I am inventing in the open spaces!
This Friday I am sharing something new with you – If you are around this weekend, I would love to paint with you. On Friday I am doing a livestreamed painting class from Cosmic Cowgirls University. IF you cannot join the stream on Friday you can still download the class and work over the weekend, or anytime you want to! The class is yours to keep! On Friday I will be interacting with you and I have one of my Color of Woman graduate teachers who will be ‘womaning’ the wall to help you with your painting questions.
