Welcome to the Creationarium. It is a laboratory. Of sorts. If you look around, you will see many interesting things.
Along one wall, there is a long table upon which sit a large number of test tubes. Some are still, some are quietly fizzing, a few are popping. Some are colourful, others less so. These test tubes contain the many memories, accumulated over your life so far. Some are spilling over into the neighbouring test tube, causing a little fogginess. Some are almost igniting as they mingle with others. Some retain their original detail. Others have become a little less clear over time. Yes, these are the memories.
Then, on a shelf high above, there are the bottles of good intentions. There are a great deal of these. Some will be uncorked and used almost immediately. Others will never see the light of day.
In the corner, you can see a stove. On it, there is a pot full of bubbling liquid, churning and spilling over. These are the giggling memories and they erupt every so often. Take care of them. They are special. And they are very infectious, but in a good way.
If you venture into the back of the Creationarium, you will see a dark, unwelcoming area. There are many small drawers in here, in which are hidden a myriad of mean thoughts. There may even be some long standing resentments locked away in there. If you leave them, they will multiply, so it’s best to pour soothing calmness and forgiveness over them so that they dissipate. In this area, there is also a large cupboard. There may be a skeleton or two in there. What else would you expect?
Let’s leave this area quickly and enter an area which gleams and shines, as if newly painted. You may need your sunglasses here. This is where the bright ideas are. Encourage and nourish them. They will serve you well. Exercise them. Share them with others, for many of them will develop better if shared with another person’s Creationarium.
On a table in the middle of the room, you will see roll after roll of beautiful fabrics. Rich in colour, diaphanous and flowing. These are the dreams and the hopes. Make sure that you place these next to the planning table, where they can take shape, have foundations placed under them and be turned into reality.
All around the Creationarium are what look like specks of dust in the atmosphere. These are the anxieties, sadnesses and regrets. They can be few in number or they can be everywhere. Try to keep them contained and in perspective. Try to outnumber them with the butterflies. The butterflies are loving kindnesses, which should flood your Creationarium and flow out into Creationariums of other people.
There are also many bluebirds. Let them fly freely for they are happy thoughts. Allow them to spill over everywhere, unrestrained. Listen to their song.
There is magic to be crafted here. Look after your Creationarium and it will take care of you. Your Creationarium is constantly changing and evolving. What you create in it is important. To yourself and to others.
The door to your Creationarium is always open but what emerges from it and is released into the world is entirely up to you.
