soul of the world
This drawing holds a special place in my heart, as it really is a gift from the universe for all of us to behold. This image really created itself. As described in “Light Unfolding,” this is one of the pieces that emerged from my very first drawing, before I had any insights about mirroring my artwork. The centre star/flower/cosmic waterfall appeared without me actually creating her. Then she told me her name, “Soul of the World.”
Honestly, I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried! As I’ve come to learn with the creative process, no idea or words or images really belongs to any one of us. Indeed, they are a part of us all. We all have the potential to glimpse, hold, and act on the manifold inspirations that come our way, but too often we do not. I thought about drawing for a very long time before I started doing it. Too long.
Finally, I discovered the joy in actually doing it. And then, once something was finished, a new sort of magic emerged – that of letting it go to be whatever it was destined to be. Sometimes that meant going into the recycling bin, and other times being shared with all. Everything we do has meaning. This is the inherent nature of the universe. If you listen to that quiet voice within and do what you feel called to do, your life will unfold in the most magnificent ways.
