Question Everything

I am an artist. I believe in Inspiration.

If Inspiration is all there is, then we are Inspiration.
If Inspiration knows all, we have access to it all.
If Inspiration is everywhere, it is always here now.

When I create art…when I meditate (or pray) I am either checking in or checking out. Am I connecting with Inspiration or retreating from a painful reality?

I believe that creativity and Inspiration are our inheritance as human beings. We are worthy of this wonder simply by being born. We were born complete, not flawed. Complete is complete. It is done.

However, our belief in ourselves has been undermined by the people we depended on for survival, who told us we were flawed. Their parents told them before their parents told them. We, in our innocence, agreed to these terms of survival.

We can choose again.

Can a person who agrees to condemn their true nature do anything but oppose it? Can a best life be lived according to what you oppose?

Words heal and wound. Words conceal and expose. Conviction is no indicator of their efficacy. This applies to the reverent and righteous, the scornful and derisive alike. Utterance does not make it so.

Question Everything. Most especially, the source of the questions.
