Micro Entrepreneurism, Simple Living & Art
“The issues that arise in the creative practice are the same kinds of issues that arise in a spiritual practice. You get to look at your insecurity. You get to look at your inquisitiveness. You get to look at your fantasy that a satisfied desire will lead to satisfaction. As near as I can tell, this is what happens with a grounded meditation technique: you go through all of the shenanigans of the restless nature of the mind and what you are left with is, just be. Out of being, things are made. So creativity is the act of being.” – Julia Cameron, author of The Artist’s Way
I encountered these words tonight, and I keep re-reading them. And rewriting them. And repeating them.
Obviously, I was inspired to share them with you. Perhaps they will spark something within you as well.
Tomorrow I begin in earnest the search to find my creativity again.
