Quote of the Day

Concerning the Via Creativa path of creation spirituality: “Creativity is not about painting a picture or producing an object; it is about wrestling with the demons and angels in the depths of our psyches and daring to name them, to put them where they can breathe and have space and we can look at them. This process of listening to our images and birthing them allows us to embrace our ‘enemies’—that is, the shadow side of ourselves—as well as to embrace our biggest visions and dreams. Art-as-meditation becomes the basic prayer form in the practice of creation spirituality.”
Matthew Fox, Creation Spirituality: Liberating Gifts for the Peoples of the Earth

    I skimmed over the quote of the day and went on to something else, but had to go back to it. There were three words I couldn’t quite shake: “Art as meditation.”
