Lately I have been thinking about how ego gets in the way of creativity. Accepting both imperfection and its beauty is healing. It allows you to be present in the here and now. It opens you up to freely accepting the universal energy of “all is one.”
Anxiety is protective. Like a smoke screen, it covers up a whole collection of emotions such as grief, anger, and fear. The ego uses anxiety to deflect potentially traumatizing situations, but then it runs amok with all kinds of unfounded beliefs and phobias.
The beauty of imperfection
Beauty is the jewel under all of these unpleasant feelings. Healing can be a long process but it is well worth it. The music will flow when you can accept and love your imperfections. What once felt like a flaw becomes a super power.
