So, the messages have come again and again. It’s time to start writing again. I’m not going to put a container on this, and decide what form it will take. I will share that I feel writing 3-4 complete posts a week sounds good. Will that happen? I shall walk the path and see.
Much of this new writing will be more personal. I find that when I try and write from an impersonal space, that the message lacks grounding, lacks tangible emotion, and isn’t firmly rooted in experience. It can also get too didactic or theoretical, which I would like to avoid. For my own personal journey, it is time now to share and open up more about my own challenges and life. Authenticity and transparency are tenets I’ve believed in for a long time, yet have not fully owned or lived by. And willingness to share my truth, regardless of fears or shame or guilt, is a sadhana of its very own.
I have been writing sporadically. Whether it’s personal journaling or letters to close friends, the words and meaning have been created over these last few years. It’s time to share more, then, too. I will sporadically find some of my old journal entries or other letters and bring them back here, as well.
Eventually, I might want to put a container on some of this writing. Whether it’s a book or booklet or website is unclear. As well, as this flows, it may be time to seek out greater support for the writing aspect, as well. I do have a novel idea that’s been brewing for several years. That is all in the future, though. For now, it is enough to practice.
Thoughts, emotions, spirit and feeling. Not just intellectual meaning, but also emotional meaning, spiritual meaning, physical meaning. These I want to convey in words. Sentences may fail me. Poetry may help. Images may help, though I’ve never been one for image-based art. We shall see what form this takes as I walk my path.
