Being in element is such a nourishing experience. Nothing to prove. Just passion enhancing the mood. Riveted by a talent, and nurturing an interest, in it’s development, and expansion. At peace. In joy. In bliss.
I gain such enjoyment, and always have, from watching the sparks light up in the people I meet, and those I work with, as I witness them expanding a burning plan, for living a life that is for them ideally correct and complete. Balanced, in a perfection, for giving just the right inflection, of what it is they wish to achieve, or make real.
Their reason, and the unique talents, that a person possesses. That lights their fire, and fulfils their desire, for what they feel they were placed on earth to do, and be. Right now, or indefinitely, the thing that excites and delights them, completely.
That’s why I love what I do. Assisting people to find and satisfy, as much as possible, their ‘True Creator You’. Because, for me that has been important too. Developing a wholeness, that permeates a world, with energy, purpose, and vitality.
No-one else can tell anyone what that passion is. It rises from within. And is a task for each person to find, or reveal, to elaborate, and to make real.
As a purpose, a vocation, or a pastime, that inspires them. For many it is a deliverance, from the sometimes unpleasant aspects that their life presents. To balance what is difficult or mundane for them. To clear their air, let down their hair. For others it is all consuming, immersed in it beyond all reasoning. And for the rest it’s somewhere in between. And, in each case, not as a distraction, rather, a connection, to that which is their true reflection. Correct, for whatever allows a person to connect, to their true creator self.
Whether it be musical, culinary, growing a business, artistic, scientific, and/or working with technologies emerging, it has a certain discipline of structure, equipment or ingredients, and flow. That optimises the brain hemispheres, and innovation capacities, exercising mindful attentiveness, and heartfelt expressiveness. Bringing you into synergy, and joyful symmetry.
As Inspiration. Or, put more simply, being In Spirit. In the Zone. In Your Element…. Flying, soaring, at liberty. Free, to express, enhancing your soul, purposefully built, for expression, and joy. Lifting yourself, and your surroundings, by your infectious, enthusiastic life, work, and pastime affections. And grounding it in reality.
Sir Ken Robinson so comfortably draws attention to this fabulous subject when he focuses on the benefits of fostering creativity, and the freedom that that presents.
Creativity: a skill, attitude, and energy, that adds value to problem solving, solution finding, joy giving and receiving, and imaginably and tangibly developing, the new world, that we are making.
His book, The Element, is an inspiration, for those looking to validate the benefit of expressing their creative intelligence, talent and passion.
If you are in the question of who you are, and/or what you can do, and like to read, it is worth the time to delve into the stories he so wonderfully weaves. It may give you some insight and reflection. And help you with embarking on your new ventures and adventures, and areas that may inspire you.
If however you don’t have time, perhaps you would like to sit back, relax, and watch this enjoyable and fabulous link. While it focuses on education, it has a much broader, multilayered, and still relevant, message to speak. I watch it from time to time, as a little repeat. It’s a great way to remind me to stay in line, with the direction that is mine. Perhaps it will do that for you too. To encourage you to exercise your learning and creativity as a process of wellbeing sustainability. And to start, and/or stay, on the path, of value, to True Creator You.
