Opening to Expansion

Posted by on Sep 17, 2012 in Coleen's Blog | 3 comments



I created this image, and then with perfect synchronicity, the poetic words of Rainer Maria Rilke’s appeared before me…”I live my life in growing orbits, which move out over the things of the world. Perhaps I can never achieve the last, but that will be my attempt. I am circling around…the ancient tower, and I have been circling for a thousand years, and I still don’t know if I am a flacon, or a storm, or a great song.”

I am stepping bravely, playfully and creatively into a new place. It is exciting (mostly) when fear and self-doubt do not take up too much of my inner voice. I am cultivating a more holistic self with the intention of feeding the creative fire and allowing it to transcend into all aspects of my life – this is a journey of moving from transition to integration and joyfully into expansion – living a larger more expanded life.


In what way do you wish to playfully explore living a larger more expanded life?



  1. Your house has a heart of creative fire with a serene, inviting opening. Looks like a great place to be, in a storm, or in sunshine.

    • Thank you for such an insightful observation.

  2. Love this piece. I feel that it has great depth and balance. Quote from Rilke is perfect.
