“All growth is a leap in the dark, a spontaneous unpremeditated act without benefit of experience.” – Henry Miller
And once you are on the edge in that sacred space
where the river becomes ocean
all you got to do is leap
leap into the fullness of your being
leap into the immensity of your essence
Trust you will be held by your growing power.
You’ve got all of creation rooting for your expansion.
I can see a flower so beautiful that tears overflow, its beauty touching a space so deep within. Beauty enrapts me. We are a microcosm interacting with this vast cosmos. Take a moment to truly see these flowers. If we could hear these flowers unfurling. If we could understand the language of their movement, we would realize the secret dance of flowers.
Feel the ancestral pull of nature. To unearth the story underneath. Liberate it. Ancestral is the pull to remember, to make whole and discover the nature of flow. Flow is punctuated, colored, layered by moments that narrow and widen, darken and lighten, descend and ascend through the landscape of your heart.
Peter Gentenaar’s ethereal paper sculptures inside the Abbey church of Saint-Riquier in France. I love these luminous forms juxtaposed against the ancient interior of this church. Seen together, they seem to be dancing in space. The Church, providing the architectural backdrop for their movement.
