The wider perspective
There is always a wider all encompassing perspective where one can end up. My writings can start at any point of life. Any dilemma, any issue or situation, can be the beginning of a process that seeks clarity and understanding and resolution. This process is not necessarily a conscious effort. Nor is logic the isolated tool to solve it. What happens is that certain pressures from existence and yearnings deep inside pull us towards what seems like an answer. For me this often happens in the morning. As we live dilemmas arise, the past reappears, and your perspective is coaxed to widen and broaden. In the dimension of time, this expresses itself as forward motion, marking a path. To continue moving, which it must in time, and as more and more seeming obstacles and experiences are faced, the path must seek higher ground and widen to keep going forward and not become stuck and inert.
Sometimes a writing might catch this point of being stuck. The path out and solution to move forward is not there for the moment. There is a beauty in this because the answer is not being forced. You are respecting what you see with no embellishments and just taking note. This can be done through art or writing or telling a story or just conscious observing. Still, the process of forward motion is still working. The pain and discomfort and yearning seek relief for some deeper realization to rest in. Even detachment is not a long term solution, for we have to end up attached to something. Since in time all stopping points and tangible objects and thoughts and actions are incomplete, we must move forward towards completion. That is all that is trustworthy. And this forward motion in order to self propel must include a wider, higher, all encompassing expansion.
