Not Fitting In

I know nothing and because of that  “fitting in” is a problem, mostly because humans are raised to believe that they must know. I am learning to be more comfortable with this mystery of a way of not knowing. My curiosity is as intact as it was when I was a child, I am still exploring and investigating  into  my sixties but with less of an urgency to know but more to experience. There is a knowing that comes with direct experience but it is more an awakening of something intuitive. Part of that is the awareness that what is believed to be true can get in the way of the direct experience of truth which is ever changing and unfolding and which paves the way for a more intimate and non verabal understanding and way of relating to life and living.

I find some satisfaction in the act of attempting to express my experience of life through painting, writing, language and other art forms. I have been painting for over thirty five years and combine my love of art with a meditative and contemplative way of life. I have an intuitive sense that true creativity is something that arises from beyond and through the self that can be explored and shared through some form of expression although I always hope to open to the influence of that which is beyond my limited sense of self.
