Expression is when we open our inner space to the outside world.
Every animal, every plant or anything has its own expression. For example, a flower, at first is a flower bud but gradually, thanks to the resources of life and sunshine and rain, that flower grows more and more, then it blooms. That is how that flower shows expression.
And see, when the flower blooms, we can see very clearly what’s inside it, if it doesn’t bloom but closes, who can see what’s inside and even the flower doesn’t know itself what it contains. Similar to us, if we have a sense of expression, we will gradually realize what is inside of us, and know who we are. But if we close ourselves, when we are asked questions about ourselves, we can only say, “I don’t know”.
If you live your life not knowing who you are, is that true life?
The more you express yourself, the more you discover yourself.
When we express, we realize that there are miracles hidden within us, we will live to the fullest with those inner possibilities. From our inner world we influence the outer world in a better and deeper way, and with the inner abilities we possess, we create, master, and spread a life of depth and awareness. To the people around, that is the “unfolding of life”.
There are many ways you can express yourself, especially in the arts like singing, drawing, dancing, writing… When we do these things, we are bringing in our thoughts, emotions and intellect. That’s how we express it.
