The typical process of creation is to INHALE and then EXHALE. We INHALE to gather the information we need, and then we EXHALE the creation into the world. The inhale may last a day, a week, a month or several months. Sometimes we don’t know when we are in an inhale, until we begin to exhale once again. However, there are times, when we inhale, and PAUSE.
Words are matter in the realm of sound. In the past I would have put the same meaning to the words inhale and pause. Possibly even describing an inhale as a pause. This is why the journey never ends. A recent experience has taught me the ever so subtle, yet powerful difference between the two.
The inhale happens naturally, it is the pause that is subtle. All of a sudden there is no desire to create, we have ideas and have no desire to act upon them.
