The crafting wisdom

Someone was advertising a crafting session in their home in one of the Facebook groups that I belong to. This led to a discussion about the fact that to create new beautiful things you often have to destroy the old stuff and re-use the raw materials.  I thought this was a wonderful allegory for life. How often do we have all the basic good raw materials, but create a life that is not quite how we want it? Sometimes we live with all our old stuff  ( emotional, spiritual and material) not seeing that, with thought and skill, it could all be crafted into a better product. The trouble is that it needs courage and imagination to see that sometimes we need to disassemble and destroy in order to rebuild.

So, look to your lives, see how you could re craft with all your raw materials to create a life, or product, that you really want.If we all did that the world would be a happier place.
