And the muse will touch you...

And the muse will touch you...
Artwork by Savvy Raj


Creativity is abundant in the flow of life
In moulding  it to give form in the formless
In blending in its essence to shape as you please
In connecting the dots to structure it meaningfully


Every artist charts his path
With the blessed touch of a mystical muse
The muse appears uncalled and unforseen
But exits suddenly as it came ...


Then when spaces prevail in the togetherness
And the artist seeks on with a clouded vision
What appears seems beyond comprehension
Every moments begets its own challenge

And when thoughts seem too scattered
When  emotions need time to settle
When silence tends to stifle
When  every endeavour hits rock bottom


Trust in the knowing
The muse will touch you
In the oddest moment
As it knows not time
To  give your thoughts a new pattern
Although the path is of your own making.


Savvy Raj

Every creative endeavour is an undefinable journey of peaks and pitfalls , of highs and lows. The artist can find themselves in an ecstatic flow or at  crossroads  questioning  their very existence and therefrom find new paths to forge ahead in creativity.  The challenge is to take it all in your stride knowing ‘to create is a responsibility’ and hence the apparent strifes prepare you in the process towards your purpose of being . 

Flow is a matter of faith and trust when you know ‘All is in a state of flow’   Self belief takes shape in the form of a Muse and leads you on to a state of creative flow once more .

https://www.irishexaminer.com/examviral/real-life/leonard-cohens-final-letter-to-his-dying-muse-is-even-more-poignant-today-414649.htmlMollestad, a documentary filmmaker, read the letter to Ihlen before she died.

“It said, ‘Well Marianne, it’s come to this time when we are really so old and our bodies are falling apart and I think I will follow you very soon.

"Know that I am so close behind you that if you stretch out your hand, I think you can reach mine.

“And you know that I’ve always loved you for your beauty and for your wisdom, but I don’t need to say anything more about that because you know all about that. But now, I just want to wish you a very good journey.

“Goodbye old friend. Endless love, see you down the road.’”

Mollestad told host Rosemary Barton that when he read the line “stretch out your hand”, Ihlen had stretched out her hand.

"Every creative endeavour is an undefinable journey of peaks and pitfalls , of highs and lows" this is so true @Savvy Raj, and if we don't take a chance on the journey we can miss out on many opportunities. Great piece!

2 Yes indeed! @Deb Lange As you warmly reflect 'to be awake enough to be touched' indeed this aspect of empathic mindfulness is exactly the need of the moment in sensing the infinite truth of the being..

#1 Thank you for the kind words in deep resonance here dear @Deb Helfrich especially on the aspect of trust. At the root of creativity is a letting go in the trustful knowing!

"The muse will touch you

Although the path is of your own making.' beautiful @Savvy Raj - and to be awake enough to be touched, to sense the touch and to be opened by the touch. I muse there are more moments than we realise but, often we are desensitised to them. To awaken to sense the touch opens the floodgates.

"Trust in the knowing" Profoundly accurate words, @Savvy Raj. Even though much of life is about pulling us out of the state of knowing, learning how to cultivate it in ourselves is the best gift we can give ourselves. Life is sweet when we trust in our knowing.
