APPLYING CREATIVE ENERGY
Brought to all the following practices, but also more specifically to self – expression through my writing and painting.
I seem to want to maintain these regardless of whatever else is happening in my life. Friends are a vital component part of my spiritual barometer and support network.
Slips under the radar of being a conscious practice sometimes, so raising my awareness of my desire for ethical probity can only be good.
That is 'everyday' as in regular, but also 'everyday' as including the ordinary daily things which happen off the cushion, as well as what happens on it.
Primarily my own private study, but includes study I do with others. My writing on Dogen discourses cross over into this area, as that requires a lot of personal reflection.
Self explanatory I hope, but with the type of work I'm currently doing, keeping track on how I'm feeling and responding is a necessity.
