On Spirit

Deepak Chopra and Leonardo da Vinci on spirit and art

Meditation is the progressive quieting of our mind, until we reach the source of thought, which in wisdom traditions are the realm of our soul and spirit. In this domain of awareness there is infinite creativity, synchronicity, the power of intention, and freedom from limitations.

Deepak Chopra

Is the source of thought the realm of soul and spirit. Is the well is also considered the source of thought which is the realm of soul and spirit? Furthermore in this context, is it a spiritual journey for artists to seek the well? So is writers block not just the inability to write? Is is a disconnection from soul and spirit, from source of thought?

Where the spirit does not work with the hand, there is no art.

Leonardo da Vinci

Leonardo da Vinci speaks on how the spirit must work with the hand in order to create art. So could we say that da Vinci would call the process of creating art a spiritual act?

When I create sometimes I’m working to get it done. But the most rewarding times are when I feel connected to my art in a deep way. Not just because my art represents personal parts of me. I’m connected in a deep way because it feels like I’m not alone in my work. That’s when my work is transformed from simply getting it done, to becoming a safe place for those who are willing to travel its depths.

Jayne is a writer. On her free time she likes to be with her family hiking outdoors and traveling. New England is her home and place of birth. When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
