Go Creative… With Katherine Mansfield

Last Time: Go Creative… With Satish Kumar

“The power to live a full, adult, living, breathing life in close contact with what I love — the earth and the wonders thereof — the sea —creative intelligence sunrisethe sun.  All that we mean when we speak of the external world.

I want to enter into it, to be part of it, to live in it, to learn from it, to lose all that is superficial and acquired in me and to become a conscious direct human being.

I want, by understanding myself, to understand others. I want to be all that I am capable of becoming so that I may be (and here I have stopped and waited and waited and it’s no good — there’s only one phrase that will do) a child of the sun.

About helping others, about carrying a light and so on, it seems false to say a single word.

Let it be, at that. A child of the sun.”

(from Mansfield's final journal, written shortly before her death, in 1923, aged 35.)
