Continuing our A to Z of creative intelligence, S is for the story.IMG_0159

All stories are the same story.

Comedy or tragedy, crime or romance, movie or novel, drama or farce, a compelling tale involves a hero or a society (representing us, the reader) overcoming conflict and obstacles (representing our egotistical flaws) to gain, depending on the genre, true love; happiness; peace; order; understanding; or revelation (representing the higher dimensions of existence we call spirit or soul).

This is also the story of your life, both over the span of it from birth to death, and moment by moment.

What do you need to do or drop to get beyond your current conflict and live your happy ending — right here and now?
