Marking Time 9.30.13


"Whoever you are, no matter how lonely, the world offers itself to your imagination,…" –Mary Oliver



In all my busy-ness last week, I got a little sidetracked. So I thought I would continue my thoughts on the SAORI philosophy. The second slogan is:  Let's adventure beyond our imagination.





Misao Jo, the SAORI founder, says "To the extent that we do the same thing as everyone else, we cannot find our true selves. We must have the courage to think outside the box. For pursuing one's true self, it is vital to develop a free mind and the ability to accommodate the unconventional at the first step."





SAORI challenges us to remove the negative labels we put on ourselves like "I'm not creative," or "I can't do that." or "I don't have time," or "I'm going to learn to weave when I retire."





But with SAORI, you realize you are capable and infinitely unlimited!





SAORI provides a safe place for us to go inside and explore the hidden kernel of creativity buried deep inside each one of us. Sitting at the loom, we can remove all the limitations we have placed on ourself, and venture beyond.





It takes courage to be different than everyone else. But if we cultivate that little seed, we can watch it grow beyond our wildest imaginings.
