On Need & Energy

I have a need...

I have a need within that feels like it's going to jump right out of my chest if I don't find a way of bringing forth it's yearning via some creative form.  I'm never sure if it wants to be poetry, prose or pictures, usually one spurs the other but if it is not acted upon it builds in intensity that feels so uncomfortable... I turn to my photo files for inspiration as I'm feeling doubtful at this point, being in a low frame of mind, doubtful of my own ability to create!  Did I ever create anything worthy of putting out there I ask myself? Of course I needn't worry for everything is there, every click of the shutter recorded, every moment I birthed some magic from my lens, I see it anew with the same sense of awe and wonder as if it was yesterday, and so today I can do the same. I can recreate the blissful state that nourishes at will...
It's not surprising that I have this craving to create, that I feel this way, it is an inbuilt need, just as much a need as a physical one for sustenance! It is the need for spiritual fulfillment which is created through allowing the mind to interact with the intuition that rises from within naturally. By way of contemplation at this wonder filled planet the mind and intuition merge together in tandem to do their nourishing work, to form images, words, art of whatever! The creation then manifests itself as fruits of labour and thereby testifies that this soul has witnessed and was bound up with the beauty enmeshed in our cosmos. It is said that energy is never lost but changes form so in this way the energy used becomes a permanent marker of our life...  This pairing uses energy to make visible the innermost reaches of the soul that seeks it's place, that wants to express itself, it's life while in this body on earth, through the medium of love & light...

Non-sensical

"I don't know why people expect art to make sense, when they accept the fact that life doesn't make sense."     David Lynch - City of Absurdity

.

Sometimes it's good to escape into abstraction, the place where you can just be... There doesn't have to be a reason just an intuition that your are in the right place, on the right track.... It doesn't have to make sense to anyone including yourself, it's all about the feeling of oneness and spontaneity with the work itself as it is working itself out, or freeing the thing that dwells deep within, a surfacing of that unique expression, the voice that is yours.
