Creating Beauty

In doing your work… the work of your heart, more of your light is revealed. Light is consciousness… awareness…light is connectedness… and soul. Creative art is a legacy of light… a legacy of love. Creating art is creating beauty.

This world needs more light… more love… more consciousness. This world needs your light.

YOU need your Light.

This Mary Oliver quote is perfect for artists and creators relative to your contribution to the world. To dazzle and delight… to bring ideas and beauty to life… and to create something more than was there before. Your purpose is to bring to light what is within, mold it, shape it, love it and share it.

“Still, what I want in my life is to be willing to be dazzled, to cast aside the weight of facts and maybe even to float a little above this difficult world.”
~Mary Oliver, Pulitzer Prize winning poet, 1935-2019

Our real life comes to the surface and its light awakens the concealed Beauty in things. When we walk on the earth with reverence, Beauty will decide to trust us.

Becoming Through Creating

A child enters this world full of light and love… enthusiasm and inquiry. As the child moves through life, many things dim the light, layer upon layer, like cloths tossed onto a lampshade. That is often the case at this point in civilization, where the young light that is to be intensified and fanned to flame ever brighter is actually dimmed. Unwittingly.

Layer upon layer, year after year, the light from that lamp grows dimmer as the layers of cloth pile up thicker and heavier upon the lampshade of life.

Some people feel the need to spend time and energy removing the layers through therapy, where they discuss each one, who tossed it on them and the pain of that event. There is a time and place for that, especially if you believe it is necessary for you.

And there is another way.

Creating. Doing. Becoming. Becoming through creating.

Any time you feel dark and heavy, do not crawl into hiding. Seek beauty. Create beauty. Find the beauty in whatever may be before you. For there is always beauty. Somewhere.
~LeAura Alderson, cofounder-CreateDaily.com®

Creative Art from the Heart

When we focus on those layers of cloth we see dark burdens and fabric stained with past pains. We can remember the pain that came with each one, and often our thoughts and feelings get trapped there… under layers of the past, dimming and diminishing our light and life force.

When we focus on creating, the fresh wind of creativity lifts the layers of cloth bit by bit. With each creation we have less burden, less shade and more light.

“Remember to smell the flowers” is not trite; it’s true. Remember to pause for a sunset… to make eye contact and smile to the clerk who served you… to find something good wherever you are, whatever you’re doing.

“When we awaken to the call of Beauty, we become aware of new ways of being in the world. We were created to be creators. At its deepest heart, creativity is meant to serve and evoke Beauty.”
~John O’Donohue, author, Irish poet, celtic spiritualist, 1956-2008

In these moments of appreciation, of reverence for beauty, Light is exchanged. Appreciation invokes reverence.

Reverence invokes gratitude.

Light lives there.

Honor the creator in you and make something.

Appreciation and gratitude pull the shades of slumbering sadness from your brilliance.

Create Beauty and That You Shall Have

Become the light in your environment. Create beauty through your creative art, in whatever mediums you favor. 

Create with love and that is what you will manifest. More love. And that… that is what the world needs. That is what you need. More love… more of yourself.

Create. Beckon beauty. Illuminate.

“When we expect and engage the Beautiful, a new fluency is set free within us and between us. The heart becomes rekindled and our lives brighten with unexpected courage.”

Poetic Inspiration

This article was inspired by the work, words and life of Irish poet, John O’Donahue.  We LOVE this… perhaps you will as well. One of the most profound poets of our times. John O’Donahue was lost way too early, but oh, what a legacy he left for us to treasure before moving on to greater work.

What a wonderful example of heart work… of following your heart and doing the work that matters to you.

Now… as you go through your day, inspired by some of his beauty, remember, you’re capable of creating your own legacy of beauty in the world. No matter how large or small… how simple or grand, creating art from the heart is to create more beauty in the world.

Grateful for You

We’re grateful for creativity and creators… and today in particular, an ode to the poets amongst us and who have come before us.

Today… take a few minutes to nourish your soul with these poetic video clips… let the world slow down around you and inside of you as the heartbeat of beauty quickens.

If you loved that, you will love this too. This is especially for creators!
