Reblog: April

From time to time, I get an awakening call. And Claire’s post gets the honor this time. Stay true to the self and engage the world bravely. Those are the words of encouragement I sought.  Maybe for you as well.

invisible necessity

protect yourself

but stay soft in the centre

and reach out past your defences

Thoughts for the start of April, for autumn in NZ.

For all those bravely trying to be true to themselves, speaking, writing, creating, loving the world.

We need to take care of ourselves and be a little cautious, without becoming risk averse, without becoming hardened and cynical.

We need to find ways to please the eye and feed the soul. Ways to warm our hearts and sweeten our words.

To keep reaching out to engage with the world even when it’s tough – that’s the brave thing – the creative act.

Working out how to keep yourself centred and true – that’s the spirit work.
