Tao Te Ching – Seven

Heaven and earth last forever

Why do heaven and earth last forever?

They are unborn

So ever living.

The sage stays behind, thus he is ahead.

He is detached, thus at one with all.

Through selfless action, he attains fulfilment.

I didn’t paint yesterday, creativity ‘unborn’, instead I moved paintings around, searching for space. It is a year since I agreed to do an exhibition in a castle and framed a lot of work.

There was an old lady who lived in a shoe, she had so many paintings she didn’t know what to do!

Covid cancelled that exhibition of course.

Choosing to detach from social media for now. Untangle the web! Caught like a spider and finding no joy. Time to step back.

‘If we keep doing the same thing in the same way, we get the same results.’ FM Alexander.

Honour ones own feelings, all of them. It sounds so easy yet we forget and override ourselves.

Backing up a horse to find power, elasticity, forward motion… step back, detach.

‘Back into your back!’ as we say in the Alexander Technique world and follow your joy!

“Wherever you are, what ever you do, be in love.’ Rumi
