Honoring the Voice

When we create, we speak.

Whether if one’s a photographer (like me), painter, sculptor, poet, writer, musician, dancer, whatever. Any creative act is speaking.  Better yet, I believe that the creative is a prophet which brings forth the Divine Creative in their work.  Each work is the creative’s expression of the Divine Muse which inspires us.

I think of the Old Testament prophets who speak about the “Word of the LORD”, or the “Spirit of the LORD” that comes upon them to bring forth what God had to say in their age.  I believe that same Word/Spirit comes upon us to “prophesy” through our creativity. We prophesy the “voice” of the Divine Creative through our creative “voice” to inspire, enlighten, to raise the consciousness/awareness of others, to express our spirituality, to express that which others cannot.

Like the prophets of old, that Spirit will drive us to “speak” through our creative gifts-even when we don’t feel like it.  That’s how important it is to honor the voice.  We must make sure that no one-even ourselves-silence that voice.  For like a land without prophecy, we have a dull and dead land when we don’t express our voice.

And our world needs to hear our creative voice, now more than ever.

Peace.

About dangerouschristian

My name is Victor Reynolds. I'm a Christian who desires a more mystical approach to my spiritual life. I'm also a photographer as well who loves to create. I call myself "dangerous" because anyone-especially a Christian-who dares to be beyond the "norm" and allows to let the Christ live in them is dangerous.
