I’ve had a few people wonder where I found the name for our Artist’s Way creative cluster, “i plant the seeds.” It was actually from a quote from the writer of our guide, Julia Cameron – and worth sharing here:
“When I listen to love, I am listening to my true nature. When I express love, I am expressing my true nature. All of us love. All of us do it more and more perfectly. The past has brought us both ashes and diamonds. In the present we find the flowers of what we’ve planted and the seeds of what we are becoming. I plant the seeds of love in my heart. I plant the seeds of love in the hearts of others.”
This past week has been difficult for me; these words are comforting. Loving myself is probably the hardest thing for me to do.
