My inspiration comes from two sources, mainly. One is associated with the chaos of life, like a crashing wave of information and impressions. It could be a concept at work that captures my interest, a book I am reading, or a website or even an online video about any subject that I am interested in.
The other is when I find inspiration being calm, or meditating, that is when I try to think about nothing or not to be attached to expectations, feelings, emotions, concepts, ideas, form.
The mind balances itself among the two extremes of calm and chaos, although people rarely take advantage of those extremes, as people tend to get caught up in the moment.
Try to go with the flow. Ride the storm and enjoy it as an active observer, using every opportunity to catch something interesting that may fuel your inspiration, creativity and ability to appreciate Life. Enjoy solitude too, and the silence and peace of mind that arise when you finally block everything out, even for a moment.
The lesson is: Every moment, chaotic or silent, is an opportunity for creativity.
Creativity is the spur of Idea that will be under the direction of Will to be set into Action. This is what some people call ‘doing The Great Work’.
