The desperation behind creation.
Creation is often from pain – desperation – coming from nothing – just hoping to find something – hope that there is something at the end of the path. That our pain wasn’t just for nothing and that the depths of our struggles are not in vain. So we create hoping to bring value to others and make sense of the tears once before us.
With creation comes expression.
There is an undertone to the movements we make – a rhythm that speaks to our heart – a lifetime of seeds soaked with pain buried beneath our chest as we learn to express what it is that we cannot say with our tongue. So we write, create, express – dance to let it all out, hoping that those who can relate can hear us.
And when we finally catch a break – we teach others to open themselves up in the same form of expression – we spread the value throughout the world with one single goal in mind – to end suffering in silence
The suffering behind creation.
We began to end our suffering – as soon as the tip of the pen touches the surface of paper – as soon as we play that first note of music – or that first step into a dance move – chipping away at our suffering – we learn to hone in on our skills and build our craftsmanship – projecting a beautifully created masterpiece in the end – made of blood, sweat and tears – we rise against the status quo.
The rise behind creation.
Most people that have gone against the status quo and beat the odds – built some form of masterpiece within history – have come from some shape or form of hardship – and it is precisely that reason it is easy for many of us to connect with so many people on different levels. It’s how we remember that we are human.
There is something healing about playing keys on a piano for the man who struggled with darkness. Or playing on the heartstrings of a violin for the woman who struggled with heartbreak. A pen spilling out ink on paper for a kid no one understands – creation leaves this lasting impression that there is more – that there is hope.
What will you create today? When was the last time you expressed your truth?
