Richard Rohr : The Creative Life

2019-12-04-Rohr_580_580

When you were a child, you knew yourself to be cocreator of the universe. But little by little you forgot who you were. When you were a child, everything was about color. Now you pick black as your automatic font color, because that is the coin of the realm. When you were a child, you traveled from place to place by dancing, and now you cultivate stillness, which is great, but you are forgetting how to move to the music of your soul. You can hardly even hear that inner music over the clamor of all your obligations. . . .

Yes, you are worthy of art making. Dispense with the hierarchy in your head that silences your own creative voice. . . . It is not only your birthright to create, it is your true nature. The world will be healed when you take up your brush and shake your body and sing your heart out. . . .

A friend has sent me these wonderful words by Richard Roher and i feel that they give much food for thought. Bringing a healing element into the educational arena is essential when we speak about holistic child development. Education is a tool for transformation and we all can make a contribution towards that transformation and healing process in South Africa and beyond.
