Somewhere out there, in the great wide world, there are sparks. There are people in whom dreams, ambition and desire cluster together rubbing off each other until in a whirl of excitement and frenetic energy, they burst out in a spark of inspiration. Some people are born full of fire, barely contained, and spend a lifetime in sparkling anticipation that one day the spark will catch and *BOOM* suddenly there will be flames and heat and all that potential will MANIFEST.
A spark is a point of creation. It’s where it all begins. Creation is the very first frontier, by its own definition it’s a melding and a joining. At the point of creation, the possibilities are infinite and unconstrained. Limitations come later, imposed by a desire for definition and shape, to mould creation into something more than amorphous possibility.
Fire is a cleansing, purifying, transformational FORCE. It’s elemental and reactive. Unfettered, it can rage in a way you could only see as destructive but leaves ashes for the phoenix to rise from, reborn. It’s an opportunity for all that has gone before to be redefined and reconstructed. It takes strength to open yourself to change in the wake of this destruction and it will bring you more than you know.
We are, and have always been, children of fire. It’s a time of TRANSformation, a time of REformation. We mould the future from the ashes of a dying civilisation. It’s the dawning of a new era, an opening for a new way of thought, a new beginning. If it is faith to believe in yourself and your future, then it’s a time for faith. If it is destiny to know yourself and use that knowledge to brings your ideals to bear to enhance, to create, then it is a time for destiny.
This time is not hard for dreamers: it’s a call to arms. Only OUR weapons are not designed to main and kill. Our weapons exist within us. Our weapons are words, are touch, are compassion, empathy and understanding. Our building clocks are imagination, creativity, art and connection. We are open to the gilded warmth of opportunity. Our outlines are no longer fuzzy with hope, we are AFLAME with passion and joy! This is our time to shine, our time to share who we are, what we are made OF.
When you are lost in the dark, remember all it takes is a spark to create a flame and light your way. Never let that potential be drowned and strangled in the hopeless, neverending grey. It is too easy for a spark to go out, damped down, to forget how their glorious warmth and light enables others to unfurl like flowers under the summer sun.
