The Calling

The Calling

What is your life calling to you? When all the noise is silenced, the meetings adjourned, the lists laid aside,and the wild iris blooms by itself in the dark forest, what still pulls on your soul?

In the silence between your heartbeats hides
a summons Do you hear it? Name it, if you must,
or leave it nameless, but why pretend it is not there?_The Terma Collective. The Box: Rembering the Gift

(Gaudi in his elder years still fighting for his calling)

Each one of us has a calling!
Each of these artist heard the calling and answered.
There were people who believed buildings should be square and rectangular, professional who scoffed a Gaudi's vision of architecture. Craftsmen and masons said it was impossible to craft.

Miro, did odd shapes and talked of wonderful theories, he hid symbols and ideas, but the critics may have said it just little shapes, it makes no sense, it is not a pretty picture.

And Dali, what a mad man people thought, how odd are his ideas, flamming giraffes and melting clocks!?

Believe in your calling, no matter what friends, family or critics is your calling not theirs! And what ever your calling is, it is your passion, your being, your experiences, your background, and your expression of yourself-there is not another you out there. Do you have to be a Dali or Gaudi or Miro, no you do not. All you have to do is listen to that small voice inside that says oh I so want to do this. Listen, listen with your heart and give it life!
