"The eternal dance of creation"

"Consciousness expresses itself through creation"
I know this is the first line of a wonderful
reflection by Michael Jackson.
Have you ever wonder what it really means?
This Blog explores the hidden meaning behind it.

"Consciousness expresses itself through creation.
This world we live in is the dance of the creator.
Dancers come and go in the twinkling of an eye but
the dance lives on.
On many occassions when I'm dancing,
I've felt touched by something sacred.
In those moments I've felt my spirit soar and
become one with everything that exists.
I become the stars and the moon.
I become the lover and the beloved.
I become the victor and the vanquished.
I become the master and the slave.
I become the singer and the song.
I become the knower and the known.
I keep on dancing and then, it's
the eternal dance of creation.
The creator and the creation merge into
wholeness of joy.
I keep on dancing and dancing... and dancing
until there is only... the dance."
~ Michael Jackson ~

Yesterday, as I was painting, a thought hit me.
"Consciousness expresses itself through creation"
There is really a lot of 'truth' in it as
when you create you express yourself and so
your consciousness 'grows' and express itself.

Funny enough, it never really hit me that way but
it was like the 'to be MJ painting' was revealing
the hidden meaning behind the above reflection.

Here the topic is 'dance' but it also 'fits' if
it concerns 'writing or painting' as its all
a form of creation where you the creator and
the creation really do merge into one.
It does feel 'sacred' in that moment.

What I experienced yesterday while painting was
the very sense of the wholeness of joy into a creating
something from scratch.
Once a blank page turns with paint into picture that
beckons you into another world.
The world of the creator where you dance
the eternal dance of creation.
Wonderful, right?

I know, this is kinda 'deep' isn't?
Then again, feelings are always tough to put down in words
and the alfabet just doesn't have all the letters to
convey the message.

I could have just 'explain' it in ONE line...
"This is how a creative person 'feels' when he creates"
but that is a little 'belittling' right?
It even 'downsizes' the joy and wonderment one feels when
he/she creates a work of art
as the highest form of joy is simply called 'art'.

I know, some people claim they are not creative as
it boggles your mind and once you have discovered its
secret you can never go back to not knowing its
joy and wonderment.

Everyone has a talent.
We all have the 'dance of creation' in us.
The trick is to figure out the 'steps' to
the dance routine and you're good to go.

Well, as I hit off with the painting.
I was 'doubting' if I could really pull it off
and in the end I was amazed by it.
See, the secret in success is 'perseverance' or
simply keep on 'dancing' till there is only...
the dance.
