In the past couple of days, my creativity has bubbled out in the form of creating new images from free stock photos. I add a quotation that “moves” me, and BINGO — something nice emerges that I can share.
I like this quotation because it resonates with a theme throughout the Feldenkrais Method® — that the ability to make choices is an aspect of our full human-ness. We have choices as we alter habitual patterns in the tiniest movements, to our largest actions. We make choices about how to spend our time. Did you choose to just be quiet and still for a few minutes today? We make a choice to stay on the computer creating images (ahem!) or to shut things down and go to bed. And, we make choices at the grocery store, the restaurant, and in front of the fridge.
This free stock photo from pixabay.com really appeals to me. I like the metaphor of the key: keys open doors and treasure chests and hearts, they start cars, they “unlock” concepts and ideas. They also lock to hide, keep safe, or imprison. So many choices!
Moshe Feldenkrais knew that we create the reality we experience through the choices we make. That’s some food for thought, right there.
