The Process

July 18th, 2017

Some recent reflections after my last show brought me to fill a whole page in a fresh journal.
In a way this was a reminder, if you will, from myself to myself.
Some much needed encouragement from a “higher” view of my journey, to the here and now moment of said journey.
Now that I’ve had a moment to breathe with it a bit…consider this also some advice/encouragement to you as well, dear reader. Apply it however you see fit, to any and all areas of your Life that feel like it can relate.

So from the journal to the blogosphere, here goes:

Remember – This is a PROCESS !!!

This Process is a Gift, and every moment in the Present (Presence) of this Process is a Gift, too.
Not only is it a Gift, it’s all a Lesson.
In fact, all the Lessons I’m learning, in and through the Process, are precisely the Lessons I’m meant to Learn.
The Goal is actually not the end of the Process…
The Goal is the Process itself.
To be fully rooted in, grateful for, joyful in –
the beautiful, messy, arduous, strengthening, exhausting, contradicting, unpredictable, exciting, long, fun –
Process. And no more.
The “destination” is just another Step. Another Plateau.
“Failure” doesn’t really exist. There are only Outcomes. (not my original idea but I like it)
There are only Actions, and Consequences.
And non-action also has its Consequences.
Can I be so caught up in the doing of the work, the manifesting of the Process, the Creative Journey –
that all else becomes irrelevant?
That all the thoughts, fears, worries, anxieties…even the larger hopes, wishes, desires..
become secondary to the Immersion in the Process itself?
This Immersion in the Process must lead to…
Purpose.
So I leave with you with this –

“Find Your Purpose in the Process”.
