People are inspired to write for many reasons. I realized last evening, one of the most profound reasons may be to “negate the negations”.
I am paraphrasing a quote by Joan Miro, but the resonance stands.
Too many have grown up or are currently living in situations in which their sense of personhood, their hopes, their dreams, their attempts at love and living are constantly negated.
They are belittled, misunderstood, bullied, ignored, and manipulated.
And, yet, the Spirit somehow remains strong and steadfast. It takes root and refuses to stop its own growth in the face of such negativity.
It finds a way to express and expand, and frequently, in this forum, it chooses the act of writing to “negate the negations”.
In the act of writing and creating, the Spirit finds a profound, actual, physical form of counteracting what others have attempted to lay upon it.
The stories are told, the truths are realized, the negations are negated by the profound act of creation.
Never doubt the power of your writing to find your truth. Some require this balance point in life more than others. 🙂
