Keep The Channel Open

I recently ran across a quote from dancer and choreographer Martha Graham that has quickly become one of my favorites. She encourages us to “keep the channel open” and it seems, now more than ever, we need to remember it.

“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium, and be lost. The world will not have it.

It is not your business to determine how good it is, nor how valuable, nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours, clearly and directly, to keep the channel open.” – Martha Graham

What is your vitality and action? It isn’t to be complacent! Sitting still and waiting is not what you are here to do! What areas of your life are you being called to express your unique value? Are you keeping the channel open? What prevents that from happening?

You have been given a unique opportunity. There is something pulling your forward through life. Your job is to keep the channel open so that action can be fulfilled. –
