Facing the Songs Within Us

It is often easy to turn our back on the song within, on the interior silence and interior chaos. It is easy, but we’re poorer for it. When we turn our back on our gift, we turn our back on life. It’s easy to have interests but whatever you give your heart to will challenge your being on the most profound levels.
 

To dive down, find the beauty, nurture it and offer it to the world is magnificent. Staying with your beauty, your truth, your integrity is difficult, but out of these things comes meaning, and meaning is all-transcendent.

– Roderick MacIver, Art as a Way of Life

Now more than ever nature is calling us to dive deep and courageously see the truth. To face each other and ourselves.
