Taoist Pearls, Wisdom for Writers: Mist Dreams Me

mist dreams me

now I awake

–Terry Chitwood

We are dreamed by the divine dreamer who weaves the twists and turns in our life’s path with a meticulous attention to detail.

We attempt to grasp the Creator and instead grasp mist which paradoxically is one of the Creator’s forms, fluid, ever-changing, impossible to grab hold of. As creative writers our words need to flow, branching into streams of ideas, continually moving, shape-shifting, changing into something new . . . something more.

Drop by Drop

Being dreamed, we are like precious nectar in a bottle, poured drop by drop into life until the bottle is empty—only then do the vapors of the dream reveal themselves: tendrils of mist, pure spirit, slipping into life. Frail as butterfly’s wings we are breathed into the future, an intricately designed matrix—Indra’s net.
