Do you see spirituality as a separate thing? There is only one thing. It stands ready to bloom inside you. Change your heart, your life, the world. You have the tools.

Do you see spirituality as a thing separate from your being? There is only one thing. It stands ready to bloom inside you now. Change your heart, your life, the world. You have the tools.

         That Monday night, Susan and I got together for something to eat. We quickly got to talking about how this is working in each of our lives and she talked about how empowered she is feeling in this new light.

            It struck me how this spiritual concept that is coming through See Do is so different than so many spiritual ideas. How so many ideas have you learn a concept or practice a ritual and hope you feel some sense of enrapturement or spiritual engagement. But what is going on here is real participation in the creation of your life. And in the creation of your future.

            How the empowering secret is to love yourself. To truly be that being who you can most love and honor. To find that source of love within yourself and to build that flame by fully and completely forgiving yourself. And then coming to terms with the full responsibility of what it is that you really want.

            How you have to honor that true passion that is within you. And be that person you so want to love.

           Then you have to act. You have to do. And call it in. You have to do what is necessary to bring that passion, that inner, pure wanting, to life. To your life. In the process, the glow of your inner love shines out and the world begins to move to it.

            I asked Susan what it is that she wants and she said to make art that is important. She then went on to say how our discussions have helped her to see what it is she needs to do. And that the direction of her art is rapidly taking hold and she is starting to approach her work in a new, more directed way. She has come to understand how to make her art say what she wants it to say more directly and more powerfully.

            And I could feel See Do nudge me to hear the powerful life metaphor in Susan’s words.

            As we talked she was getting more ideas and inspiration. They soon covered both sides of a napkin. She is seeing truth in words and images that the world is bringing to her. And that she is bringing to the world. She is adept at capturing ideas flying by in just a few words. She is glowing brightly.
