Endless Playtime

August Bank Holiday in the UK is traditionally the last fling at hedonistic abandon for kids of all ages before September arrives and with it that call back to school… I’m no exception to the rule. Embracing the inner child seems to be the theme for me at the moment as I go deeper down the rabbit hole into the light filled kingdom of bliss.

It’s a weird and long overdue sensation this hugely overflowing Grail cup that I’m currently not only drinking from but actually appear to be swimming in, and its a feeling that were I able to furnish you with it via this technological transmission, I would happily dump a mountain of blessings in your lap… and that’s the key. I learned as a little girl (and again just yesterday in fact), sharing the love, the joy, the endless playtime, goes a huge way towards centering your focus on this never-ending moment… and who wouldn’t appreciate a never-ending internal summer?

Whilst this bank holiday may be a day off for many, I’m not suggesting that irresponsibility become your way of life, I’m simply wishing for you the curiosity of a child’s spirit in everything you do… may your life, work, health and relationships be an endless playtime that you too may share wherever you go and with whomever you meet.

Cardinal Rule

I forgot a cardinal rule this week and it caused a stall in the flow of creativity. In order to kick start that creativity I felt the need to kick against a fixed point… a bit like a sprinter pushing hard against the blocks at ready, set, go! Unfortunately in the game of life, pushing against a fixed point usually means creating some form of personal drama as drama, in its own right is fuel for a good story… but it’s hardly helpful in creating a peaceful life. Creativity on the other hand is essential for bending the light of Source energy into a form that pleases you and fulfils your needs to move the story along.

So what was the cardinal rule?

You don’t need a reason to create.

This morning I awoke and had an urge to paint, my logical brain then piped up and said: “How is that going to move you forward on the path?” I basically chastised myself for wasting time on triviality when work needed to be done. The truth is, I make my own deadlines for work, what if today I don’t want to move forward? What if I want to sit and explore right now through a different creative medium? What if by painting I find a new passion that God wants me to use in my work? What if I really enjoy myself?

My creativity stalled because I felt I needed to mould it into a productive form that fits within the boundaries of my conventional day to day tasks, that the outcome needed to be useful in some way or strategic, calculating even. Instead of just creating from my intuitive guidance, for my pleasure, I told myself it had to have a point and a discernable purpose. My inner child had a plan and my outer grown up shat all over it from a great height… and then the well was dry.

Convention, when living a fulfilling, peaceful, joyful life, is a prison whose walls not only confine you but drain the life and light out of you…

I’ve got an overgrown garden, 3 half written training programmes in progress, meditations to record, research to complete and the next chapter of The Wholly Grail book to write… I’m off to get my paints out, sod it!
