Research & or vs. Creation?
In Inner-Connective Love-Studies
Jan 13, 2021
I think it is for all of us to decide (this will be likely my initial response to everything, in alignment with the none-of-us-has-whole-truth belief) My feeling: they are distinct, but also compatible in co-existence, and additionally likely to be nourishing for one another (therefore potentially complementary). There is a popular tendency (to which I 'fais partie') to imagine different 'focal points' in method or motive or orientation... the mind (universe of thoughts, language, meaning, sense, story).... the heart (universe of connection, receptivity, compassion, and feeling).... the body (universe of the hands, physical doing, concrete action, sensation and sensorial experience).... the 'spirit/soul/breath/energy' (universe of being, of acceptance, of flow, of spaciousness)... I am frequently referring to these as 'the 4 bodies.' In my estimation ALL can research and create... but certain are more likely partners... ie - it is 'natural' that the mind would engage in research and the body/hands with creation.... HOWEVER, one can easily (and delightfully) imagine a research of the heart or a creation of the spirit.... or even a research of the body and a creation of the mind (we might even call this day-dreaming). In any case, I am filled with excitement to FIND OUT... and to see concretely which pairings emerge actively and evidently in the research and creation of La SOURCE residents.
