Gateway of Awe

The hidden stitch of light sewn into the fabric of all of life is part of who and what we are.

This teaching of the universality of creative sparks implies that whether we are answering the telephone, changing the baby, riding the subway, or writing a poem, we are in touch with the creative source of life itself. Everything we encounter provides the same opportunity for us to meet the creative source: the play of early morning sunlight on our eyelids, the smooth cloth of the pillowcase beneath our cheek, the cutting of carrots and celery. But we must remember that being in touch with the creative is not just a matter of what we come upon as we move though our day. It is right here, the teaching says, in ourselves. When we learn to see with the eyes of the creative itself, every moment is an opportunity for new expression. We are always standing at a gateway of awe.

Beautiful and true words. In Islam, when something creative is praised by someone, we say Alhamdulillah, which means all praise is due to God alone. He is the Source of the creative force, which is really the divine spark in each of us manifesting itself.

Peace and Blessings!

beautiful... thanks dear Meredith...

...that which see through these eyes is the Creative... bowing to the subtle shift of surrender that allows newness to see itself...
