A Change in Direction

I’ve been working on my new book, Environmental Healing.  I thought it was just going to be a book about using energy healing to heal the earth and ourselves.  I was a little surprised when all of a sudden I started getting the urge to paint again.  One day I came home from work and thought that I really wanted to paint a bird-of-paradise.  This is a beautiful tropical flower with many brilliant colors.  I found a photo and worked on it.  Then, about a week later, I came home and wanted to paint an egret.  That painting was equally beautiful to me.  I wasn’t quite sure what to do with these paintings.  I didn’t want to bring them to a fair and sell them for a few dollars.  That seemed like a travesty. 

Meanwhile, I was in contact with my publisher about publishing my new book.  I was talking to them on the phone when all of a sudden I looked at the paintings and realized that they were part of the book.  This would be more of a full-color picture book, mixing my paintings of nature, some lovely photographs I’ve taken over the years, and the text I had already begun working on. 

We need to be open to having things evolve in their own time and their own way.  We can’t force things to happen.  Everything is in divine perfect order.  We just can’t see that from our limited vantage points.  So, I’m off to write more. . . .
