Your Unique Vitality

July 25th, 2009

“There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. If you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is; nor how valuable it is; nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate *you*. Keep the channel open . . . No artist is pleased . . . There is no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer, divine dissatisfaction; a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.” Martha Graham

These words of Martha Graham are especially appropriate now when a multitude of forces are attempting to make us smaller, more closed in, more fearful. Now is the time when we should be vigilant, keeping open to our inner knowledge and the creativity it can bring forth. Let’s all keep our channels open and not allow our own uniqueness to be lost.

Life Force is Vitality

Martha Graham

In order to create influence and to take action, your life force needs to be fully enlivened and expressed. Notice what motivates you and inspires you. Never judge yourself by perfection or you will never experience joy. In your unrest, realize the newly conceived possibilities.
