"Stilling Your Mind"
Artists sometimes go off in solitude. Why? So we can commune with our pure light. It is there all the time but during the day in the middle of our everyday lives we become distracted by these lesser concerns.Nothing is greater, nothing is more noble an act than just connecting and staying connected with your inner spirit, your inner light, the source of that which never changes.You're resisting this general pull toward quiet. Please stop! Let go...and let your inner voice through. Let it speak to you.
There' the constant motion of the mundane world...back and forth. Leave it. Leave it unconcerned. Let it just leave you. Just be at peace. Why? So your greater truth can be experienced. I said before that your most noble act is connecting and staying connected. In truth you are never separated. You only fix your attention away. But your deeper source, your creativity - is constantly, consistently there. Do you know why? Because you, you, you, you, you, you are that light.
You are creativity itself.
As you realize your greater self, the self that's inside, it's very gentle and quiet, but it's there. It's there. Once you realize that, heck creating your masterpieces - that's inevitable. Realizing your greatest ideas, that becomes effortless. Attracting your deepest desire freedom, peace, joy, wisdom, that's instantaneous.
Because you are those things. An artist, an artist in the truest sense is creativity...is creativity expressing itself.
Don't hide your light under a bushel. Don't! Don't hide behind fear and laziness. Feel it. Open your heart to it. Open your mind. Open it. Open your heart and your mind to your deepest light and inspiration.
Let the world come and go. Let the thoughts come and go. Don't ride away with them. Stay in the center of your truth, the truth that doesn't change.
When you are in that state of grace, it lasts forever. So when you are ready to paint, to write, to write your music, develop your business plan - the insights will be there immediately. And if they aren't just remember that's just your attention pointing away from yourself, from your light, from your creativity. It's there. It's here right now. Take a deep breath. Release and be the great light that you are. Shine baby shine!
The big question is, "How?" "How do I become more creative?" No one can tell you how to be you. You are the one who just have to let go. Let go of all that crap stuff in your mind...about this and that. Let your mind just be...let it rest. Okay? Just stop thinking so hard about this and that and that and this. It's like those waves that you're looking at right now. They're going constantly come. They're going to constantly go. But there's something underneath that, that's so still, so strong, so real that doesn't pass. It doesn't pass at all.
I can't tell you how to be you. But you can realize, just you, Just by being still. Even during these videos that I send you. Just take this time. And if you have to listen to it everyday, that's even better. Just listen to it. It's giving yourself a time to be still, to be quiet. It'll give you just like a head start of the day, of the evening of the afternoon - whatever it is. Take the time to connect with yourself. Take the time to witness the greatness that you are. You are! And if you don't think you are, that's just you not looking in the right direction. Okay? Be creative, because you are creativity itself.
Shine. Shine. Shine!
