Being around a great group of Creative Souls is the key to Igniting one's own Creativity and bouncing Ideas and Visions off of one another... to Encourage, Inspire, Mentor and Uplift... so that we can all saturate the World with even more Beauty and Positive Energies!!! And though those things will often be different and deeply Personal for each of us... for some of us there will be a Kindred Spirit of Loving Similar objects and Styling in Similar ways and so we'll gravitate towards one another in a Magnetic and Effortless way... Like Minded Souls being brought together through the Laws of Attraction. (Dawn, from Bohemian Valhalla)
Dawn's prose (which is more like poetry to me) struck a chord with me this morning. Her blog posts are jam packed with visual stimuli and stand on their own in that sense. But this particular commentary jumped off the page at me!. These words were almost a paraphrase of Biblical truths about the Church--meaning the people who make up the Church. If it's true of Creative Souls, how much more is it true of those in whom the Holy Spirit of the Original Creative One dwells?!?
Whenever we (the Church) gather, whether on Sunday mornings or in small groups throughout the week, we should be "igniting" one another. Encouraging, inspiring, mentoring, and uplifting each other so that we can all "saturate the World". We have so much more to offer than Beauty and Positive Energies--although our Lord IS beautiful and the power of Living and Written Word of God IS "positive energy"--just not in the sense that the world uses the term....
And how true that things will be different and deeply personal for each of us...yet we gravitate towards one another in a Magnetic ad Effortless way through the shared bond of the Holy Spirit who is the ULTIMATE "Law of Attraction". THINK about it! And get ye together with one another! And "more so" as the Day approaches!
Not forsaking or neglecting to assemble together [as believers],
as is the habit of some people,
but admonishing (warning, urging, and encouraging) one another,
and all the more faithfully as you see the day approaching. (Hebrews 10:25)
Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ,
if any confort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit,
if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete
by being like-minded, having the same love,
being one in spirit and of one mind. (Philippians 2:1,2)
