Artesian Wells and Mason Jars From Which We Drink
by Sage Sweetwater
Metaphors pour the drink of life. Artesian, without the need for pumping flowing under natural pressure.
I discovered many years ago what the value of being natural did for my artistic career. I've benefited greatly through ecopsychology with balanced thinking.
The corrective powers of nature have allowed me, over the years, to connect my psyche to renew my living earth bonds.
I've sustained and profited from sensory nature connections which have improved my life greatly.
As a prolific lesbian author, by adding the balance and purifying the powers of nature's restorative ways benefits me on how I think and feel.
Through nature, I have been fortunate to have learned how to correct society's underlying disorders and remedy its hurtful symptoms.
The sensory healing attraction to nature has renewing holistic effects and it has never escaped my way of thinking, which makes me a much more disciplined artist. It's all about a life-dance of intelligence conversing with the trees and the song of the wind. The perk of my livelihood flows ground up from artesian wells, the drink of my well-being. Healthy changes are welcome in every artist's life.
Wiser judgement in lifestyle and relationships and a reduction in anxiety walk together in my personal and my collective life. I've found through ecopsychology how to go with the natural flow of streaming cycles.
Consider, for example, the water cycle and our natural senses of thirst and excretion. The latter are felt-sense attractions to water that we experience and they are fulfilled by its flow in, through and out of us. Gaia is self-correcting in her ways, holy, sacred and divine, ways of community, self-governing and self-organizing.
My artistic creativity is the fountainhead of my own authority. I thrive on inviting nature in and I can honestly say that I have hitched my buckboard to something larger than myself.
Artesian wells and Mason Jars, the real thing, backyard and backcountry. ecologically sound, personal security, empowering and focused ambition.
