a blessed unrest that keeps us marching

‘there is vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique…. you have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you. keep the channel open…. [there is] no satisfaction whatever at any time. there is only a queer, divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.’ (martha graham, quoted in blessed unrest.) no satisfaction? that explains things. a dark night of the soul (via negativa) however, is only part of the picture: via negativa is preceded by via positiva but followed by via creativa and via transforma. norman doidge thinks the brain changes itself. but what changes the soul, the anima mundi? i don’t know, but i seem to be on a journey to find out, and my food for this journey, which look like bread and honey, are really my strength and joy.
