What if you woke up in your 30s......

What if you woke up in your 30s, realizing you're still wondering what you want to become when you grow up? If you'd openly talk about it, many might be quick to label you as infantile, immature, unable to take responsibility etc. etc. 

But here's another perspective. What if this could the most important question you'd ever ask, arising in your mind precisely when it should. 

Questions are fascinating because they give birth to new stories and because they tend to re-route our lives in a natural and creative way.

Clayton Christensen once said that a question is a place in your head where an answer can rest. If you'd allow it to make itself comfortable enough to abide in your consciousness for a while without losing its importance, surprising things can happen. A whole galaxy of new questions forms around it to help you understand what exactly you are seeking to answer. For example, you could find yourself wondering:
Write these satelite questions down. Map them and see how they connect to each other to form a gateway to self-realization. Explore it without fear, allowing yourself to neutrally contemplate each question without being overwhelmed by it. You set the pace. The questions are nothing but friendly form of guidance. They will wait until you feel ready, until you've done your research in the outside world and looked within yourself long enough to feel what is true for you.

If the quality of our life depends on the decisions we make. And the quality of our decisions is largely determined by the quality of the questions we ask, what are the questions that could lead us to the greatest breakthrough in life?

Instead, feel free to browse through the list and contemplate the questions that resonate with you at this moment. The questions might be used also as journal prompters and in practising meditation. What do you stand for? What person do you wish to become? If thoughts shape reality, what would you like to think about that would help you move forward? If you'd have to do the impossible with nothing, where would you start? Who are you without the doing? Who are you when you just are? If you could re-imagine and transform their life just by visualizing and thinking, wha

To Transform Yourself is To Transform Everything

The ability to transform ourselves holds the key to transforming what is around us. If we view life as a series of collisions with the future, then it does make sense to explore in more depth what is and cultivate a greater clarity of what we desire. It also seems wise to remove any obstacles in order to allow what we have envisioned to find us. "The creative act is a letting down of the net of human imagination into the ocean of chaos on which we are suspended, and the attempt to bring out of it ideas." - Terrence McKenna Stirring mental waters until new islands of awakening start emerging is not for those prepared to explore familiar landscapes only. Ultimately, many are not here to follow the rules of someone else's game but to craft a whole new one of their own. A new game begins by learning to look at things from a fresh perspective and asking new questions . To put it shortly, it all begins with allowing your creativity to find you. Courting it, inviting it to join

Musings on Creative Freedom

As an artist, creator and thinker, a llow yourself to: be fully born do nothing make/do something for yourself only play for play's sake change your mind and rethink your identity, brand, values, principles, opinions if you deem it necessary build upon the work of others integrate all that you are into what you create start where you are with what you've got impose your own limitations and rules to up your art game a notch build a habit and unlearn it if you wish make stuff and destroy it from time to time not allow everyone's opinion to be the measure of your work's worth and affect your desire to create appear and disappear authentically express yourself even if it means you might upset someone create work that feeds your soul (not just your ego!) ask questions others have not asked before answer questions that others have already answered but you haven't yet not say anything if you don't feel you've got something to say hurry slowly s
