One cannot be an adept

 like a deep insight

One of the things that keeping a daily journal entry is good for is generating occasional flashes of insight. These can then be used for the purposes of generating further Light, in the form of artwork and artistry and Arte.

Oscar Wilde once said, “I always takemy journal withmewhen I travel. One should always have something sensational to read on the train.”

Today, while practicing tai chi late in the day as part of my daily practice (having missed my morning window), I realized that as much progress as I’ve made in my practice, the radically different timeof day had thrown me for a real loop. It then became an opportunity for further exploration by the creation of this artwork as the background for the presentation of my own self-quotation.

Maybe there’s ego in this, but It doesn’t feel like that. It feels like a deep insight worthy of celebration, how deeply I am connected to the place and time in which I do my Work.

… So I made it into a poster. Originally from a line in the entry “Taiji Day 257: Under Moonlight” on my blog,

“One cannot be an adept in the mornings, if one is still an apprentice in the darkness.”
