Sabian Symbols: A man tête-à-tête with his inspiration

TRUSTING THE CREATIVE URGE
Much of what we do comes from the mind, yet truly inspired wisdom and action comes from another place within us
"Following inner guidance and inspiration"
Knowledge that is taught, recorded and passed down is what informs the cultural background from which creative new ideas may spring. Yet the creative urge itself arises from within and is accessed better when we learn in silent contemplation how and why to tune in to the Source of inspiration. Wisdom so received is of a higher order and is potentially life-changing.

To walk our talk, we must normally balance self-interest with service
Man tête-à-tête with his inspiration – is an image of the condition we can access when our alignment with the highest sense of self, being one with the source and force of our creativity, is the normal condition of our lives. In this condition, we can access ecstasy – this is a state of absolute satisfaction in the transcendental experiences of selfhood, when we are neither attached to – nor detached from – our sense of identity.
As much as we have to accept the overshadowing of the universal order, we must also assert and demonstrate our own special capacities, by which we make our personal claim upon worldly life. A balance is to be found between inspiration and action, the muse and the inner executive. The muse shows us what to create, and the executive shows us how.
Each of us lives in constant intimacy with spiritual truths of every sort. We consistently renew our wisdom realisations, and find that all we need to validate them is ever close at hand.
Our need to act continually in our best self-interest is a personal truth. Its counterpoint polarity is the universal truth of service and self-surrender.
The real knack to find fulfilment in life is to find a way to translate every vision into practical consummation. To walk our talk. Then we find that there is no difference at all between our spiritual faith and our worldly expression, because we are one with inspiration at all times.
We need fully to grasp that an enthusiastic idealism and tireless desire to serve becomes a realistic life path only when we are satisfied that we have stabilised a strategy to achieve our goals on a personal level. Otherwise, our will to serve simply becomes an aspect of the complete self-obsession that typifies an ardent, but misguided, idealist. How could any philosophy be meaningful if it does not fulfil, or at least eradicate, our deepest aspirations?
Eventually we need to rededicate our special capacities – even our individual experiences – so that they are transmuted into a spiritual statement. What previously we used for practical purposes, we now use for the demonstration of our spiritual imperatives and beliefs.
A man tete a tete with his inspiration
Commentary from Rochelle Beaty
The need to meditate for the practice of Quiet, Stillness and Silence. Opening up to one’s higher-self to receive information, guidance and inspiration from a higher source.
This symbols speaks of a new inspiration, a message that warrants attention and action. It's a potential life changing moment. The hand of the higher source shedding light on a new path forward. It seems like the energy is happening from source to consciousness.
