Divide and Dissolve

How does one write when the feel they have nothing left? Sometimes the world weighs heavily, and the energy is gone. Whether the news of the day has paralyzed you or the amount of money in your dwindling bank account steals your focus, resistance will easily rob you the desire to write. It will allow fear and frustration to slow the process. You just succumb to the weight of it. You fall under the waterline. You loose creation.

This is when the mind needs to empty. Look within. Know that when we have problems everyday that stunt our desire to write or to grow, the toil only fortifies what you will create down the road.

I’m currently going through some challenges. My writing is not where it should be. But as Rumi once wrote: “If all you can do is crawl…start crawling.”

A Gift for You, by Rumi

mirror childA Gift for You, by Rumi

You’ve no idea how hard I’ve looked for a gift to bring You.
Nothing seemed right.
What’s the point of bringing gold to the gold mine, or water to the Ocean.
Everything I came up with was like taking spices to the Orient.
It’s no good giving my heart and my soul because you already have these.
So- I’ve brought you a mirror.
Look at yourself and remember me.
