“I actually meant to talk about [a different topic] but when I started writing it took a completely different direction. I think I love when that happens.” – Rachael L. King
Maybe writing isn’t really about the words. Maybe it’s more about giving the Universe (some call it God) a means of expression, a way to connect with us and through us.
Like Rachael’s experience of starting to write about something and then having a completely different set of words come out. I think I too love when that happens!
What if all it took to hear Wisdom’s voice was to open your heart, soul, and intellect and just start writing?
I’m not talking about a refined essay or brilliant poem or carefully crafted set of ideas. I’m talking about free-flow writing, messy writing, give-or-take the punctuation writing.
It’s in that kind of writing — the kind of writing that’s accessible to ALL of us — that inspiration can touch us and answers can find us.
Although we seldom talk about it in these terms, writing is a means of prayer…
Moving alone onto the page, we often find ourselves companioned by higher forces, by a stream of insights and inspirations that seem somehow ‘other’ than routine thinking.
Artists throughout the centuries have noticed this higher dimension and called it ‘God.’ It doesn’t matter what you call it. The point is that writing allows you to contact it. Whether you think of it as ‘God’ or ‘higher forces,’ as ‘inspiration’ or as contact with your own ‘higher self’ doesn’t really matter. What does matter is that you can access a source of information and guidance, both creative and mundane, that will serve you.”
So really… why not write??
