……or you stand still like the hummingbird………Henry Miller

My Life as an Artist (2)

When you are convinced that all the exits are blocked, either you take to believing in miracles or you stand still like the hummingbird.


The miracle is that the honey is always there, right under your nose, only you were too busy searching elsewhere to realise it.  


The worst is not death but being blind, blind to the fact that everything about life is in the nature of the miraculous.  – Henry Miller.

    In life, can there really be a situation when all exits are blocked? And if we indeed for looking for an exit, what could be the exit from and what could it be into? If all exits are blocked, how could we make peace with such a situation?

    Thank you so much, Shakti for your comment. I just had an experience where I thought I was blocked, and then things developed in ways that i could never have been creative enough to work out…..Janet.

    I love this, whenever I feel blocked I creep around, above and under a problem and like you say mysterious, creative solutions often appear!xxx
