“You have to act as if it were possible to radically transform the world. And you have to do it all the time.”
~ Angela Davis
A calling is a calling is a calling. It’s practically beyond understanding – the why’s and wherefore’s of it all.
What are we borne with that makes us special…
What is our most cherished ideal of life…
What we really truly value almost beyond our ability to breathe in and out…
What does it take to say ENOUGH! Enough of believing the story we tell ourselves for why we keep putting off our dreams… for the unconscious ways in which we sabotage ourselves when we’re right on the cusp of reaching out and grabbing IT… when it is so close, but feels so far that we can’t see it is a millisecond away, if only we can have the fortitude to keep going, to push through that barrier…
Launching my Toronto Passion Project is an act of stepping outside myself and serving something greater. It began with an idea and has blossomed into an adventure and an experience. Letting go of my ideals and thoughts, I’m following the impulses the project seeks me to explore.
A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who participated in my call for help!
Your comments inspired my muse and I’ve been exploring the history of Toronto and discovering some fun facts I didn’t know. Like archeological finds of First Nation settlements artifacts date back several thousand years! And, we were once under France’s rule. In the 1700’s we were known as York and renamed as Toronto in 1834.
Here’s some photos of our history.
I’ve also been learning about some of our local heroes and socially conscious entrepreneurs – people doing really amazing things in our city!
Of course, being outed as the most multicultural city in the world, diversity has become our claim to fame and it is even in our city’s crest.
So, what am I doing with all the comments I received? Well, I don’t want to spoil the surprise, but I can let you know that I’ve put them all on index cards, and then take the key phrases and written them on the panel for the Toronto painting.
Your celebratory thoughts of our fair city are infused into the foundation now, and together our energy will fill the painting with our hopes and dreams and will intentionally radiate with our light out into the hearts and minds of Toronto.
I know it’s possible.
in the vision that
came into my heart.
Do you… can you… will you… believe it too?
