“When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.” – Rumi Click To Tweet
I simply LOVE the imagery that I feel when I read and reread these words. This seemed like the most fitting image for my blog this week since I’m heading out to a Heart Art Retreat tomorrow.
“From my soul” FOR ME means I am creating…
Thinking of new ideas, writing books and blogs, imagining new designs for journals, coloring book themes…
Also…redesigning and repurposing closets and rooms and houses…fills my soul with immense and total joy.
Indeed, my river is not a slow-moving kind of river! It’s more like rapids!! Ha!
At Heart Art Retreat, I’ve discovered the joy of painting. A blank canvas in front of you with no idea what you will do with it. Listening for what your soul decides. Ah….this kind of soul-moving has more smooth, calm waters. Peaceful. Soothing. Relaxing.
Oh my yes, I need some of this kind of “from my soul” activity this weekend!
What things do you do from YOUR soul? What fills YOUR soul with joy?
My wish for you is MUCH MORE of those kinds of things!
