"The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed." Carl Jung
The word ‘welcome’ rings in my ears. Welcome the New Year. Welcome creativity. Welcome old & new friends. Welcome the stranger on the street. Welcome wholeness. Life. Rain & sunshine. Warmth & cold. Open your arms and welcome the world. Do your little part to co-create.
Co-create—for I do not do anything alone and it is not a puppeteer God who pulls the strings and says, “Do this or do that.” It is fully me and yet it is bigger than me—this wholeness of which I speak.
With the face of another, we create ‘welcome.’ One offers. One receives. The circle broadens. Preparing space. Setting the mood. Cleaning the house. Preparing the food. Lighting the candles. Pouring the wine. Breaking the bread. Welcoming friends. Welcoming conversation. Welcoming the New Year. Creating space to be together. To create conversation. Relationship. Renewal. Something that did not exist before.
Welcoming creativity in old & new ways this New Year.
This post is dedicated to A & C…I hope you recognize your part in this creation ☺.
