Burning Desire to Create – Part Two

I’m undergoing a burning desire to create. Therefore, I’ve decided to loosen up and broadened the theme and subject matter of my blog.

The truth is I have a burning desire in my heart to create period, and it’s not limited to writing my soul book.

I want to be able to write about my other creative passions, have a forum where I can take notice of the creative world I live in, and a place to write where I can inspire others to join me and do the same.

After x number of years, I’ve finally decided to be true to myself and live my life’s purpose. Since then, I’ve found the Garden of Eden and that’s where I now live, work and play.

I am exploring the creative world 24/seven, where amazing things are happening as a result, and I’m burning to share what I’m learning.

In the early morning I lovingly tend to my garden, even the weeds. I then slowly mosey over to my studio where I paint till lunch. In the afternoons I write, play my keyboard and explore the creative world through meditation. Yes, I’m blessed.

In addition, I’m feeling the need/desire to write more often and I don’t want to be restricted to a narrow format. I want to talk to you and share with you what’s in my heart.

I believe we all have this creative ability. We all have a voice inside of us that wants to express itself. I believe this is how our souls communicate with us and the world.

Creativity also opens our hearts, and when our hearts are open not even the sky is the limit.

It is my hope that you will find here inspiration:

Inspiration to express yourself;

Inspiration to find what you’re looking for; and

Inspiration to live your life’s purpose.

After all, we are hands held in unison, burning with the desire to create.

Your Soul Sister,

The Burning Need to Create

“Consume my heart away; sick with desire
And fastened to a dying animal
It knows not what it is,”
W.B. Yeats

I love this verse by Yates. I can meditate on it for hours.

It sums up beautifully the ache in my heart. For I am a living creature filled with desire tied to a dying animal, and I don’t know who I am.

My heart aches with desire to create but there is something holding it back; an emotion that no longer serves me, like a dying animal. And hidden from view, under this rot, lies my real identity; my true essence. As a result, I cry in despair because I don’t know who I am.

Every night I wonder what it will take to free myself from this decaying carcass. The answer keeps me guessing while hope keeps me searching.

How long my quest will take or whether I’ll succeed is unknown. However, I have no doubt that when I do unchain myself I will know for certain who I am. And when I know who I am my heart will be free to sing its song.

With much love,
Lorlinda Osborne

Soul Sisters – Coming Out of My Cave

It’s January 30th, 2014 and I just finished the fourth chapter of my book, Soul Sisters. The completion of this chapter is a landmark for me.  It marks two events.  The first milestone is I’m at the approximate halfway point in my book.  The second and much larger milepost marks me coming out of my cave and my commitment to telling this story.

 I’ve been in a cave since I started this project back in August.  The cave is a metaphor for my reluctance to share or discuss my book idea even with friends, despite their gentle and good intention nudging.   This book has been a very private affair.  Even though it’s a novel there’s so much of me in it that it’s scary to allow others a peek inside.  

 Writing Chapter four entitled, March Madness (mental illness and creativity) was no exception to the difficulty of my monumental undertaking.  The chapter was my husband’s idea and it was the hardest chapter to write thus far.  Deciding what to include and not include was a battle.  Then it took more than two full months of daily labor to write the story.  The process was like giving birth to a baby; it was filled with painful love.  Now that it’s over I’m exhausted but relieved to have my little bundle out of me.

 Today also marks the new moon.  The time to plant new seeds, and watch them grow.  With my green writer’s thumb I’ve decided to plant a new blog and hopefully it will be fruitful and others will see something beautiful in it.   

It is my hope that you will feel free to share your thoughts/inspirations with me and become one of my muses as I hunker back down to begin Chapter 5 of my book, entitled Creativity. 

Until the next blog entry, I’m sending you tons of creative love.

Your soul sister, Lorlinda
