Zen Buddhists say that an oak tree is brought into creation by two concurrent forces: from the acorn, the seed full of promise and potential; and from the future tree itself, which wants to exist so badly, that it pulls the seeding forth out into the world: the tree creates the acorn from which it was born. The Buddhists love a little playful surrealism, non?
I am finally beginning to understand this concept, as the sense of being prepared for something – The Rumble – takes form and shape. I’m plotting and planning and dreaming and creating and juicy magic is occurring as lovely people step forward and offer their energy and the waving of pom-poms. Its an ease-filled process. I am creating the work that I believe I was meant to do, and it feels like The Most Important Thing.
This Most Important Thing is about my story and your story, taking everything I have learnt about ‘big’ change and making that metamorphosis happen gently, one to one. Its about bodies and healing, and telling truths and letting out secrets, its about playfulness and amplifying life. I am dreaming of beautiful prose and soulful conversations, collaborations and retreats in beachside places. And a soul-food cafe in the middle of the English countryside.
Its all about connections between us and of being in service.
And really really good coffee.
And of course my little acorn was here all along.
