I love early morning coffee time with God. Quiet time. Nurturing. I never cease to be amazed at what comes though when I journal. After being on a hiatus with this practice during the time of a whirlwind romance, Spirit was ready and waiting when I returned. (Note to self: Never let anyone or anything get in the way of these gentle moments. God wove around and about and through me during that time – I feel clarity and strength would have been recognized sooner with meditation and taking time to journal.)
And so … one early morning, as words poured out on paper, it was clear Spirit was prompting me to “put myself out there”. What unfolded was a series of gatherings – for people to come together on a path of discovery for body, mind and Spirit. It was to be called: The ART of BEing. That was a WOW moment. I’m one that needs confirmation … still, after all these years. Like, I’m not imagining this … or am I? If I were to do this, we’d need a space, so, God, you’re going to have to come up with something. You provide the space, I’ll be brave and do this.
I took a breath, and started my day. One of my “to do” things, was renewing my membership with The Crossing Arts. An amazing art community, fostering individuals to create their own works of art! Be sure to check them out. While I was there, I was offered the Art Gallery as space to hold gatherings for The ART of BEing. How incredible is that?! The beautiful, creative art – first imagined by the artist and then coming to reality, surrounding us as we gather … this is affirmation, don’t you think? Now, I’m being brave and holding up my end of the deal! You can get more info at The ART of BEing! A couple of wonder-filled things we will be doing: meditating, taking time to journal and share … I think Spirit is smiling.
What I know to be true … BEing true to myself, BEing still in the silence, BEing able to listen, BEing willing to be brave … are parts of God and the goodness that is waiting. All of us are a piece of ART … BEing who we are … is our gift to the world.
