MY SPARK OF GENIUS?
14.4 I Belong to All of Creation.
One fig has 1000 seeds.
The fig tree in my back yard has 1000 figs.
I belong to my fig tree in all its abundance.
I belong to 7 billion human beings.
I belong to the animals, plants,
insects, bacteria and viruses.
I belong to earth, air, water and fire.
I belong to 3.2 trillion stars.
So do you.
I belong to Mystery.
So do you.
I have my work to do.
So do you.
My unique tasks are revealed by a flow of inner whispers,
visions, ideas, possibilities that rise up.
The revelations are sent by Creation.
I pay attention - humble, scared, excited.
In 1999 when 8 year-old Meredith Miller asked me
"What if the whole world made a painting together?"
I knew this vision was mine to manifest. It was too big.
Who was I to take on something so ambitious, so impossible?
I sought wisdom from helpers. I developed a collaborative mural process
so large groups of people could envision solutions to challenges through co-creation.
Now a growing forest of Singing Tree murals dots the world, over 32 of them
made by 15,000 people from 50 countries.
to the all-inclusive invitation
of a child
and said "Yes."
I jumped into the river of Creation.
We long to belong.
We belong all along.
(Plan on it.)
We remember again.
Then our genius, our joy, our spark, our usefulness,
our connection to each other shows up.
(Count on it.)
