Don’t Strain, Don’t Rush, and Don’t be Greedy
When you are doing something, my may rush things to get good results quickly. Instead relax and enjoy the process (PL, Perfect Liberty)
Remember this from yesterday. I loved the simplicity of it, I wanted to do it. To make it easier on myself, I asked the minister’s wife if she could please show me how to do it. Being a visual person, I do better when I see something done (when it is totally foreign to me and origami is) Her patience at folding the paper, and refolding to ensure that I was seeing where I had to turn the paper, how to fold a crease etc. was calming.
I didn’t know that I was so hesitant to do it wrong, that I wouldn’t even try until I saw her do it. The she patiently led me through the steps, one by one.
Me, “miss get it done” was learning something new, I doubt it is something I will ever excel in, but I did it. I have an artistic bent as you all know. The mediums I do best in, are media that work WITH me, for example, my “style” of work, and my need to watch the process develop (I am getting better) finds me working with acrylic and water paints. Oils and I have not clicked over the years. Yet I do work with mediums that require over night drying…I’ve never taken to oils.
This lesson has a lot to “say” to me. I know that I will do my best to apply myself to practicing the wisdom in this lesson.
I will do my best.. that is all any of us can do.
Have a good day everyone.. LOVE and Blessings.
