Keep the Channel Open





There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening
that is translated through you into action
And because there is only one of you in all time this expression is unique.
If you block it, it will never exist through any other medium
and be lost.
The world will not hear it.
It is not your business to determine how good it is;
Nor how valuable it is; nor how it compares with other expressions.
It is your business to keep it yours, clearly and directly,
to keep the channel open.
You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work.
You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you.
Keep the channel open.
- Martha Graham  (As found here, thank you, Grace)

Can we just take a minute to let these words sink all the way in?

There is only one of you in all time.

If you block your unique expression, it will be lost.
It is not your business to determine how good it is.
It is your business to KEEP IT YOURS.

Keep it yours.


Happy Friday, 
  Julia

  9. "...and because there is only one of you in all time this expression is unique. If you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and be lost. The world will not hear it."

    And speaking for myself, my world would be a little less bright without your words and light shining into it.
