In search of the Divine

Dare I to introduce this account with the Homeric words Tell me, O muse, of that ingenious hero[ine] who travelled far and wide in the attempt to find the perfect opening?

Perhaps.

For I will, depending on the aetherial winds that do blow in with the light of day, wander in pursuit of delicate and fleeting thoughts born of night and shadows. With my face turned toward the sun, I dance in the night’s path, calling unto Hekate and Helios to be the gentle patrons of these letters.

Which is what this account shall be. Letters written and set adrift on the arcane electric seas of the computer realm. Dear…

But to whom shall they be written? Myself, lovers, potential lovers, or just to the muses? For those curious eyes that wander the electric seas and find themselves touching briefly upon these shores? For all of the above? Yes, for all of those I would whisper to on the wind, in the sound of the sea, in the moonlight, from the sun dancing on wave top…

Talk to me.

Such contradictions a new school year always brings. Fresh on the heels of a new creative start, brought about in turn by a fresh location in a black-mould free home, a new year with an extremely demanding set of students began. In the midst of that chaos, I did get one(!) story segment written. I have the second one mostly ready to go. Ambrogio has been telling me of the events that happen, and when, and yet I’ve been too exhausted to sit and type (much less write by hand) for the past two weeks.

No more! Today I came across an article in Daily Om and this quote just resonates with me a great deal:

Getting worn out and run down robs you of receiving what you need from the universe.

I needed to see these words today. I know that I can change my nonexistant energy levels and begin to live the energised, creative life I envision for myself. The article continues: Whenever you are feeling run down, take an honest look at how you have been thinking, feeling and acting. You will likely find a belief, behavior pattern or even a relationship that is out of alignment with who you really are.

I can put my finger on several key issues right now, and will be working to change how I contribute my energy to those situations and people. I will also be consciously watching my language about how I am narrating my own life. For example, the phrase, “I am so tired.” is going to be eliminated as of now. I will replace it with “I need a little more rest.” and then take steps to give myself that rest as I change my orientation and perception of events.

Autumn magic… I cannot wait to see how it does work on me, my outlook, and my creativity.
