It’s no secret now that we’re at a bit of a craggy crossroads, we humans?
It seems that Life herself is more urgently stirring up the recollection, resurrection, and/or Phoenixing of whole areas of innate and indigenous-soul genius that were submerged, repressed, and/or oppressed in the hard-and-harsh lean into the (too-often heartless) intellect and left-brain ways of being.
This will be no surprise to those whose first-and-foremost purpose is to be (recognized or unrecognized) ‘frequency bringers’ — conduits for a certain consciousness frequency, you might call it, and the ideas, insights, and horizon-edge perspectives that come with it.
These ‘volunteer souls’ have been getting stirred, awakened, marinated, pushed, pulled, Underworld-initiated, and Phoenixed for quite awhile now. (Sound familiar?)
In her Brainpickings article, Effortless Creativity, Maria Popova includes some powerfully and evocatively worded musings related to this ‘urgent need’ for such culture-shifters.
Here are a couple that stirred the creative wellspring within me, and will perhaps stir you as well:
“To produce poets, in this largest Baldwinian sense of creative seers of human truth, seems to be among the most urgent tasks of our time.”
“… the nature of this clarified, magnified deepening of being — concentration as consecration …”
“… her insight ripples outward in widening circles (as Rilke might say) to encompass every kind of writing, all art, and even the art of living itself.”
(She writes) “In the wholeheartedness of concentration, world and self begin to cohere. With that state comes an enlarging: of what may be known, what may be felt, what may be done.”
Popova also includes an illustration from Illustration by Sydney Smith from The White Cat and the Monk, a 9th-century ode to the joy of uncompetitive purposefulness.
The joy of uncompetitive purposefulness …
Producing creative seers of human truth being one of the most urgent tasks of our time.
Very evocative ideas, aren’t they?
They’re clues as well — and those clues illuminate our truest values, intent, sense of meaning, and purpose.

Hey there long time no see. Great to see you’re not missing a beat. I however have been absent from WP land for quite a while. I had so much bloggage to catch up on that I put my finger on the down arrow and closed my eyes and said, “OK, who do I need to connect with now?” And when I took it off, it was smack-bang on this post, so here I am. Yes I agree, some serious phoenixing going on, a really traumatic time for those clinging so heavily to that old paradigm. Karmically I’m sure I have paid my bills because I’m not feeling the need to try and transmute those lower vibrations anymore. I have been flooding my sosh media channels with so much light and beautiful solutions to worldy problems of late. Pushing more energy into manifesting, Kabbala, Merkaba, Druidry, studying these, I feel like I’m doing this not in a quest to reclaim, but to discard the accumulated spiritual identities of a number of past lives and to reconsitute that wisdom for many. You’ll be seeing me a lot round these here parts seeing as I am on hols. Much Love xoxo

Hey there, Leeby. Welcome back; always good to see you at your blog or mine. 🙂 Sounds like these retrograde-rich months have been rich for you … much transmuting and shifting and coming current, as I say. With me as well. I, too, have been leaning more into the desirable while looking at but not over-identifying with the not desirable (have to know of the latter to bring the medicine, but over-identifying with the mal juju pretty much means contributing to it … those natural laws of energy, yes?).
p.s. excellent notion to flood your various sosh channels, etc. with big love and divine light and high vibe frequency. Ditto here as well, and there’s plenty of muck in the psychosphere so that ‘good juju wash’ is a good idea.
Be well, and I’ll look forward to seeing you.

Yes, great to be back. Oh, I love that phrase, “psychosphere.” I may have to steal that for an upcoming post. We’re not at risk of running out of negativity anytime soon. Let’s do what we can to raise that vibe. Also looking forward to catching up on what I have missed. Much love, light, health, harmony and happiness my. xoxo

I’m with ya, Leeby, on the “let’s do what we can do to raise the vibe.” And yes – psychosphere (or psycho-sphere, yes?). Good one, eh? 😉 xo Love & lots of grace and blessings to you, Jamie
