In the paraphrased words of Martha Graham:
“There is vitality, life force, energy that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you, your expression is unique. If you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and be lost forever. It is not your business to determine how good or valuable it compares with other expressions, it is your business to keep the channel open”
I’ve also been reading ‘Ask The Awakened’ by Wei Wu Wei. Early into it, I’m getting a sense that the greatest fulfillment in life comes when we awaken to the truth that our existence has a sole simple purpose: to serve the world we’ve created. Our purpose in life is to manifest our own story, to overcome the limitations and break through barriers (real or imagined) that stand between us and the future we’ve created. To become more aware by recognizing the impact we make in the world through our thoughts and actions. You can get a copy of this amazing book from Sentient Publishing, a local company based in Boulder! They also have many more books that I highly recomend.
