What inspires you?
Each day we have an opportunity to receive and share the inspirations of all that surrounds us. We share in the bounty of a world waiting for us to be more aware of its gifts. We move through the stories that are unique to our experience, all the while remaining always connected to the collective experience. The trick is to be present and to remain open to what we personally resonate with as a space of inspiration.
By definition, Inspiration is…
1. the process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative;
2. a sudden brilliant, creative, or timely idea.
3. the drawing in of breath; inhalation. (medical)
I love all of these definitions because they indicate an active component that is necessary for the effect to take place. Everyone has seen, felt or done something that made them yearn to do more, be more and gave them joy. Everyone has had that spark of illumination and the seemingly endless flow of possibilities to act upon. And, everyone has been so taken by something/one that it literally took your breath away and made the next breath deeper and more fulfilled. The writings here will hopefully evoke that power of inspiration within you.
