Writers are explorers of new frontiers.
Writers are magicians and healers.
Writers are poets and teachers.
But mostly, we are Rebels. “Whether he is wealthy or poor, the Rebel is really an emperor because he has broken the chains of society’s repressive conditioning and opinions.” (OSHO Zen Tarot, The Rebel). We are rebels in our willingness to discover and explore the vast inner and outer landscapes of our lives. We are rebels in that we have dared to write our stories down. We are rebels because of our courage to take responsibility with our creations, and to live our truth out in the open. We cannot be trapped by customs, rules or dogma. We “cannot be imprisoned . . .” We upset the routine and make others uncomfortable in their loungers. “No organization confines her, no community, no society no nation.” We belong everywhere because we are not possessed by anyone.
The empty page is our frontier to discover and explore. We can write our destinies, explore internal and external frontiers, make real magic, heal the wounds, free the soul through verse and invite others through our example ways to “be themselves.”
So many benefits to writing.
