Creating peace for creativity

"The simplified life is a sanctified life,
Much more calm, much less strife.
Oh, what wondrous truths are unveiled-
Projects succeed which had previously failed.
Oh, how beautiful life can be
Beautiful simplicity."


Creating Peace again...

I've decided to simplify some parts of my life this week. We often create such complications and attach ourselves to so much stuff that it is very difficult for our light to shine through. And of course, with so much complication and so much attachment, we keep telling ourselves we have no time to be still and no time to nourish the talents and creativity which we have been given, no time to sketch and paint. Maybe next year... 

Yet, within us, we still hear our inner voice calling us "go on ... take another step ...". 

Sometimes we respond within ourselves "I will ...I will ... when I've enough time or enough money or know enough people or when I'm good enough or ..." and so on. It comes down to one thing, one simple step - make a committed decision.

Once made, you begin to focus and the universe responds to help you. Ah, but you don't know where to start? If that's the case, it's time to simplify and create space. In that quiet, still space, listen to your heart. Let your heart guide your way and trust the guidance you receive. 

So, clear out the cupboard, the wardrobe, the shed, the computer, your studio, whatever - if you haven't used it or worn it for a year then give it to someone who will use it or wear it or chuck it out! Get rid of all unnecessary commitments, like too many blogs and subscriptions to too many newsletters. 

Make time and space for yourself - I dare you!
