11/2/12 – There is only one of you in all of time

Standard

 “There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open. … No artist is pleased. There is no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.” – Martha Graham

Read that quote over a few times. It says SO much! This is a GREAT reminder to myself for when I want to hold back being me sometimes. Maybe I can be inappropriate, maybe my humor is a little crass or dry, maybe I am a tomboy that doesn’t always dress to impress, but I am ME and there isn’t another ME! So I wouldn’t change that for the world. Don’t hold back, be you, and don’t EVER let anyone take that away from you. If we don’t allow ourselves to be ourselves, the world will never be introduced to certain energy. Who knows how that messes with the balance of this crazy world 🙂 Keep the channel open 🙂
