Another Song Journey to the Sun King...

“The Only Living Art is the Art which Comes from a Living Source, and that Living Source is called Inspiration.” – Hazrat Inayat Khan

Once more a journey to the Sun King
This time there is no fear of the Blaze
Only a heavy longing lingers
To question again where its all going
The Sun King listens attentively
With a touch on the head 
Activates the memory of an old ache to express
Reveals the once bottled pain that now feels free
Unveils the sowing of the first seed
A whisper into every cell of Being
Beyond sound
Beyond elation
Beyond expression
It pours in and through
And then these words:
“There will never be another exactly like you”
Endless images of beauty flash and shine:   
“There will never be a life exactly like mine”
Then joy comes spilling over into song
Melodies pour forth
From a distance the radiant Sun King adds:
“Savor every drop”

Journal Entry July 2, 2012

What does it mean to be an individual?  How do we embrace this life experience in such a way that honors the gift, the giver and that which is given?  There are so many aspects which remain mysterious as to who we are and why we are here.  Yet what is clearer to me now is that there will never be anyone with the same perspective on life, with the same desire to express, with the same adoration for music and poetry in the way that my heart thrives and feels bliss in expressing.  The songs and the artwork are wonderful to share and to pass on.  Others may bask in the light of something we have discovered.  It may help them to find their own light.  If the intention to create begins with wanting to show others the way, something vital and life-giving can be lost.  First and foremost a communication between the Universal and the Self opens up.  In that beauty a song blossoms or an exploration into color and form initiates on canvas or a poem seed bursts forth.  This conversation with the Creator or Creative Force opens us up to be awake on our journey.  The more we live in Consciousness, the more this innovation comes.  

Meditation on the 4 Principles reminds me over and over that we are not separate from the Divine, but an active agent of Consciousness and Creation.  With every outpouring, my life has more to offer in all of its undertakings.  The mysterious and miraculous remain constants in my day to day living.  This posting is a moment of questioning.  A moment of pause and wondering if I'm wasting my time and energy?  Can this life be better spent in other endeavors?  Before rolling out of bed this morning, these questions buzzed around my brain.  Later upon reflection, the answer came : I am a miracle of nature.  My toes, hair, knees, chin and elbows are nowhere else but on this body and so this goes on for a while...until I ask to keep this feeling as a reminder.  Six hours later, my fingers type these words...
