Worthy worthy worthy

Have pity on those who are fearful of taking up a pen, or a paintbrush, or an instrument, or a tool because they are afraid that someone has already done so better than they could, and who feel themselves to be unworthy to enter the wonderful mission of art.*

The acknowledgment of abundance all around you awakens the dormant abundance within.**
(Eckhart Tolle)

Some wonder why they haven’t been invited; others wonder why they were.

For some, it is important that many haven’t been invited.

For others, it is difficult to get their heads around why what they do should be considered important.

That which is important to us, that we have developed and honed, that we have mastery of and bring to others is the art of our living.  Whatever this is, it can be developed, a noticing of our own worthiness, and noticing this opens up more:

‘The good craftsman uses solutions to uncover new territory: problem-solving and problem-finding are infinitely related in his or her mind.’

(*The character Petrus in Paulo Coelho’s The Pilgrimage.)
(**From Eckhart Tolle’s A New Earth.)
(^From Richard Sennett’s The Craftsman.)
