I was reflecting on the topic this morning of how painting is my church. The act of creating something connects me to Source like nothing else can. That got me thinking on how all acts of creativity can be spiritual but not always are. When I cook and I am not present I am no longer connected to my Self and therefore my Source.
When I paint I am so excited to see how the paint is going to lay on the canvas and how the colors are going to meld together that I am mindful of every brush stroke. I paint very intuitively. I really have no idea what I am doing. It is a total act of trust and allowing. Being in that Divine Flow lifts me to a state of Ecstasy that I am unable to get to while practicing mundane chores like folding the laundry. I know that it is possible to bring that Ecstasy into these tasks but I haven’t gotten there yet.
I am excited by this train of thought because it helps me to see how so much of my life is a creative act and therefore am connecting to my Source more than I even realize. When I cook and eat mindfully I connect to Source. When I dance and walk in the sunlight mindfully I connect to Source. When I practice yoga and take photos mindfully I connect to Source. The key for me is to remember these things. To bring mindfulness to everything I do will deepen my connection to Source. Even folding the laundry is a spiritual experience once I bring mindfulness to it.
