|Intuitive Painting ~ WIP|
Taoism philosophy advocates :
'Worship by cultivating nine fields.
Diet, Herbs, Clothing, Recitation
Movement, Meditation, Creativity, Teaching
And most important: Compassion.'
~ Deng Ming-Do
365 Tao ~ Daily Meditations
More often then not my 'worship' involves these nine, I am better at some and my favorite for this blog is 'creativity'. On this blog I see creativity as part of my spiritual practice along with the other eight. I emphasize here the field of creativity as being very spiritual. The painting seen on this blog today in various photos was begun after yoga and meditation. This particular painting was and is 'an on going a lesson' in 'letting go' and naturally expressing my creative self.
Along with creatively painting, I have been writing haiku which is below:
schooner rides waves, glide
over the ocean winds calm
sails luffing, wind building nigh
rock me gently, slow
ever peaceful within heart
boat rocking gently.
soul safe on ocean
peaceful, loving feelings now
course charted, lead on.
We are sharing today with
Wishing you a fun, loving weekend.
Hugs and namaste,
We love to have you post your comments, thoughts or questions to delight us all in the day ~ especially, ArtMuse Dog ^_^

I am sorry that I have not been around for the last while. but I have my Mum staying with me at the moment and feel guilty if I don't give her my time and so haven't been on the computer much.
Hope all is well with you.
