Within the first five minutes, I knew I had found something significant. A raw blast of energy ignited my performance. I felt totally alive. There was nothing but the moment and I was flowing with it. Incredible, spontaneous ideas and movements poured through me. I could create without effort and the creations were endless. It didn’t feel like I was initiating my actions. Rather, the energy seemed to flow through me easily and magically.

from Fire Seed

To begin the journey, we begin with self. When we go deep enough in our personal journey, we access the universal and connect to what is eternal, timeless, one with God and all of life.
