On Desire

Distrust anyone who tries to convince you that you should give up all desires in order to be happy. Desire is the driving force of the evolution and innovation. It enriches your mind, expands it, motivates you to seek and explore unchartered territories. Honoring the desire to create means you care. It opens your heart to possibility and allows you to see told landscapes with new eyes.

Everything that has been created, made or invented, has come into existence because of somebody's imagination and desire to turn it into reality. Desire signals the expansion of your capacity to mentally conceive a possible future. There are no rules or limits for those who can see their new reality and reverse engineer it back into existence.

“We are told that talent creates its own opportunities. But it sometimes seems that intense desire creates not only its own opportunities but its own talents.” ― Eric Hoffer

Everything you desire is already hidden in your consciousness as a potential projection of who you are. If it was not yet fully formed in a vision, you would not be able to sense it or access it. It is important to know and believe that you are never inspired towards something that does not have the potential of giving you everything that you want.

Honor your desire by all means. In order to be selfless you need to be sufficiently self-centered. Your desire is your greatest hope for reconnection to a higher creative intelligence. If you have a talent, there is a demand for it. Otherwise, you would not have it in the first place. If you're passionate about it, you definitely need to follow this resonance because it will lead you forward. The higher creative intelligence talks to you through your desire. Listen, be present.

Life becomes your personal lab for miracles when your desire and your belief are in the same place, carrying the same energy of faith and confidence. There is no greater way to pray or ask for something than evoking the feeling that you already are in a possession of it. That it is already yours. You claim it boldly through desire, that is by seeing it, feeling it and becoming one with it.

Creativity, Clarity and Opportunity

The passion to create art brings with itself an unimaginable power of healing and beauty. Creativity can be seen as a wonderful prayer as it connects us directly to a higher consciousness. Tapping in its resources requires faith in our ability to be actively patient and confidence in the path that is revealing itself in sometimes mysterious ways. Great art comes from truth and doesn't need validation.  To create is essential if we wish to bring clarity to the realm of possibility. Possibilities are fuzzy, attractive, indefinite and alluring paths we can take. When we choose, we eliminate the noise imposed by less relevant (yet attractive) concepts and focus on what we feel is of value. Ideas come to life when acted upon, not simply recorded and safely placed in a drawer. Sharing them might feel vulnerable but at the same time, it brings us down to the arena of other creators. To be judged or criticized is to be seen, not just looked at. Once our ideas catch on fire, there’s an im

Creative Affirmations

What I've learned from Elizabeth Gilbert's Big Magic

Arrogant belonging: declare that you ARE, claim your place in the world. Liberate yourself from the desire to necessarily help others/be of service through your creativity; just make stuff for its own sake, for your own sake. If you love something, persevere. If you love something, believe it loves you back. Regain your curiosity, cultivate your inquisitiveness. Follow each clue, no matter how mundane. Chase every reference. Explore every spark of interest, no matter how fleeting it might be. (Your) Art matters and simultaneously it doesn't matter at all. State it out loud: I am an artist/writer/poet/creator. Rejection is not a valid reason to quit, neither is the lack of audience. Inspiration and ideas seek you to manifest them. Show it you are ready and capable of doing that. Be ready, show up, do. Make commitment to the doing, not to the outcome. As artists and creative entrepreneurs, we all need some support and reassurance when we feel our creative muse is slightly less presen
