The Question came up at a young age...
The Question came up, but it wasn’t spoken in words. It was inside of me and it guided me.
This Q showed me that there was something I needed to express…Life has taken me through many turns to hear this question more clearly, and it continues to unfold.
At the age of 14 I decided that I wanted to be a performer. I loved the working and un-working process of devising theatre. Without having the words to describe it, I was in awe of the chance and uniqueness of creating work with a group: each time people come together in a shared reality. All with so many secrets, stars, cultures and ancestors, they meet the challenge of sharing a view of their life and their inner world.
The best performers tell stories that bring us back to parts of our own souls that are waiting to become whole again. Magic.
It took years but, eventually, I realised that it was not performing that I was in love with; it was the creative and collaborative process. Creativity is the essence of life that brings me joy. We pull golden threads of inspiration down into our lives and weave them together.
Creativity is always in the moment. Always shrugging off the heavy ego.
Leaning into the creative experience felt good. I started to take more joy in injecting creativity into my view of life; being that force in the Now, rather than saving it for a character or performance. I came to understand, The Question didn’t need to be expressed on stage, or screen, or even have an audience at all to get closer to the answer... This Question quest that I was on continued; in bubbly musical afternoons, in time spent in nature, upside down in yoga classes, in those midnight conversations that are so juicy that time disappears, and in those solitary moments where life feels so real and so clear that no words are needed.
How do I find a sense of belonging?
How do I build the courage to feel- and respond truthfully to my feelings?
How do I know what I should do with my life?
Why do I feel overwhelmed by the world- and life- sometimes?
As of Now, The Question is clear to me. Boxes of separation continue to dissolve as I open to seeing the Whole of Life as The Question answering experience. The Question (which is so clear to me nowadays that I say it as a statement for all of my cells to hear) is…
WHO AM I?
I am coming to know my true Self, and I am in rapture with the Journey.
The Creative Soul Collective is part of the quest. This is part of our journey to come to know and understand ourselves by widening the lens. I want us to be inspired together and illuminated by trailblazers who are experiencing The Question, so that we can also move deeper inside and anchor in the light.
