I just made this comment on Denise Mulligan’s blog when she was talking about trying a new material, stepping outside of the confines of what we usually do, not being perfect, but being free. I didn’t even think when I said this on her blog that it was truly a profound statement for me. My whole life I have tried to follow the rules, since that message was instilled in me by my parents all through my childhood. It’s not that it’s a bad message, in fact is has stood me in good stead for my whole life up to this point, all 56 years and counting…
But, when it comes to the essence of who we are, the rules have just got to go out the window, with a swift boot kick to the rule book BE-hind, because to follow you heart, to be true to the higher self that is you, honest with your soul, faithful to your spiritual beliefs in whatever form they may take, you’ve just got to follow your heart because it always leads you to the place of kindness, the place of understanding, the space we can wrap ourselves up in called love. It is only with love, self love that we can embrace our true creative being, and soar on gossamer wings to the sky.
So I want to thank Denise for her post, for being the little whisper inside the heart that makes you wake up to an essential truth about yourself and to also celebrate the creative beings who surround me in this world, each and every one, because without them there would be no light to shine, no moment of awe at someone’s spirit being witnessed, no SpArKLe to my days. And let’s face it, a day without sparkle is long and dreary and without heart.
So go shine your light and break all the rules.
