The Rules

Creativity is one of the most powerful energies in the universe. To engage in creative work is to fully participate in the life of the universe, the Divine life. Denying someone their own unique form of creative action in the world is to deny them participation in the dance of love. Rules shape society, but they should never be used to stifle creativity. The rules never trump love. So head out today and engage in your work with creativity, and remember you are participating in the life universe. When your action is loving and creative, you are building the body of love that goes forth into the future. Nothing is trivial. You are beautifully and wonderfully made.

“As long as you are dancing, you can break the rules. Sometimes breaking the rules is just extending the rules. Sometimes there are no rules.” – Mary Oliver

Thank you to Derrick Knight for the beautiful pictures of waterlilies. I have been hunting them all summer and he found me colors that I had not seen where I live. You can find more lovely pictures on his blog here.
