Within each of us dwells a host of archetypal energies…. So…who is The Fool inside you?
Within each of us dwells a host of archetypal energies.
We contain multitudes:
the Mother, the Father, the Lover, the Trickster, the Creator, the Destroyer, and many more.
Each of these archetypes fills an important role and purpose in maintaining inner health and wholeness.
One of these is at the heart of the creative activist, and this fool has many aspects.
So… who is The Fool inside you?
The Fool is the dancer
Romancer of air, of the free winds
That wrap the world in an embrace
Of open space, of the cliff’s edge where
Earth meets sky
Where Heaven kisses the ground’s mouth
The edge of our selves
Of the innocence that dwells
Always in the deep, always in the heart’s
Pulse, in the beat of the drum that pulls us
On and off into the Unknown
Forward into innocence
Forward into freedom
The courage to step out and out and out
The Fool calls us to circle back to the faith of a child,
to the primal swirling energy of motion, to the journey’s beginning.
The Fool brings forth spontaneity, creativity,
and the capacity to step out into the immense possibility of the Unknown, the great Mystery.
The Fool is eternally young,
The Fool knows no fear.
What are the transformative powers of the Fool?
The Fool invites you to be transformed through joy.
The Fool invites you to be transformed through the absurd.
The Fool invites you to be transformed through bold creativity:
– To paint and to create, to fill an open blank page with colors and shapes, devoid of all expectation, devoid of all judgment.
– To dance without inhibition, to move freely in public, in private, alone and with others.
– To find your voice, to be open, to sing out your own unique song, to make music for music’s sake alone.
– To act with pure spontaneity, to step beyond the cliff’s edge and to trust that the angels of the universe will bear you up.
The Fool invites you
to be transformed
through the passion
of a child’s innocence.
How beautifully Foolish will you be today?
