Thoughts While Creating
Gaze upon the perfect scene.
We have found a place of solitude and tranquility where we can go to quiet our soul and get refreshed and re-energized. The scene before us presents it all; a beautiful sky, a gentle valley, a quiet stream where ducks swim, and a dilapidated stairway (What?)
Upon closer inspection we notice that the steps leading to this place of quietude are high and arduous. They have been formed over the years and have culminated in a difficult climb.
Through reflection, we realize that the steps to anything worth pursuing can be fraught with difficulty and perhaps even danger. Often, we need to go deep into our spiritual reserve to take the first step towards achieving the peacefulness that our soul desires.
Nothing is easy on the path (especially the difficult climbs) but once the obstacles are overcome tranquility will follow.
