Sensitivity and Vulnerability

I am in the middle of the Alan Watts book “The Wisdom of Insecurity” after first reading it thirty five years ago. The thing I appreciate most about it that first attracted me is the theme that reflects the title. The major realization that has come through meditation over the years is that sensitivity and a sense of insecurity and vulnerability comes with being more aware. The difference comes in how we respond to that sensitivity and vulnerability. The ego would continue to be protective and defensive. In embracing that sensitivity and vulnerability it is something the ego has great difficulty with, consciousness reveals something other of our nature that has laid hidden.

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 Qthe 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.
