Thalia plucked a Columbine blossom and wondered out loud, “Can I turn this into a dress?”
“Purple is my color,” Urania grinned. “But I’ll let you use it.”
“What’s mine is yours, what’s yours is yours, and what’s ours is yours,” Calliope said. “Wonder where I picked that up.”
“Old as time,” said Nia, “and still we keep forgetting.”
Words from Typist:
Time to take the next step with our muse image.
I’m going to try painting and also drawing/coloring with markers.
Colored pencils are great for practice, and too weak for making a big splash.
Creatists — Take joy in the doing!
Last summer in Nashville I spent some time watching and listening to Clare Cunningham sing through an open window. Something about her presence caused me to pay attention and I followed her on Instagram. A day or two ago she posted an acronym:
Total Reliance Upon Spiritual Timing
What do you think of that?
Do we have the power to direct our thoughts and thought patterns away from fear and worry… towards love, learning, and growth?
I believe we do. Granted, directing our thoughts elsewhere isn't going to change how things really are in the world but it will help us to enjoy the moment in our own lives instead of worrying all the time.
I’ve been polishing my oppositional personality traits just now. 🙃. How about R.U.S.T. and not T.R.U.S.T.? Something about the word Total feels absolutist? I say this not to be a contrarian, but to explore Agency. In my early days of recovery from alcoholism, I heard “Turn it over to your higher power.” And in the same sobering up process, Working The Twelve Steps was of paramount importance. As agents of our step work, lots of personal effort was required. As for outcomes and timing, yes, that can be seen as Spiritual in nature.
To wrap back around, I personally believe we ourselves bear responsibility to act. To act in our own best interests. We can invite in our spiritual force as we have chosen for our lives. For inspiration? For fortitude to act? For setting proper goals for our efforts.
Kinda like the Muses sharing colors once in a while?
