Keeping a creative sketchbooks is a way of paying fierce attention to our lives.
When we focus on what we love and want to experience more of,
new channels of possibility open up.
More of what we dream of is available to us.
This is the beauty and benefit of tapping into our imagination and intuition.
When we use our creativity this way, it is as if we are unlocking whole new ways of problem solving and wayfinding.
This is the magic of keeping a journal for process.
There is a Chinese proverb that says:
“Keep a green tree in your heart and perhaps a singing bird will come.”
Keeping a creative sketchbook is one way we can do this —
We have this beautiful container of blank pages, inscribed with our most private and cherished desires.
These blank pages are where we practice paying attention, listening inwardly, and tapping into a greater intelligence.
When we are unattached to outcomes,
our intuitive capacities open more and more,
making the road to our heart’s desires clearer.
What a beautiful journey we have the privilege of enjoying.
Love is here
Love is there
Love is everywhere
This is a message that poured forth on that journal page pictured above.
There of course is a longer story that goes with it. For now, I just want to leave you with this.
Love is imminent.
Keep journaling, keep exploring, keep finding ways to pay attention to what you love.
If you’d like to journey further with me, I’d love to guide you. Join me in Dreaming on Paper.
We will nourish the green tree within our hearts.
