[110] The Golden Key to Creativity

There is a feeling of oneness found through deep awareness which includes putting aside this overthinking, over-analytical, over-logical aspect of myself and allowing more of the understanding to flow from within me

The Eternal Now

  • In Taoism, there is a concept called Wu Wei
    • It can be interpreted as “non-doing” or “non-action”
    • It can also be interpreted as effortless action, that is one with the ebb and flow of the elemental cycles of the natural world
    • Awareness, being in the now is the key factor
  • Individualized path
    • It seems that we are traveling in the world within and the travels of the world within is being expressed in this life that we live. And what I would call the creative expression is the articulation of this inner journey

Letting go of Inner Resistance… (Creative Blocks)

  • Infinite riches in the form of resources, are all around. By looking through my mental eye of imagination, infinite possibilities are revealed. There is a gold mine within me where I will find everything I need
  • Overthinking
  • Emotional integration
    • The infinite life flows through me; is me. Its doorways are but the faculties which comprise my consciousness. To keep open these doors is the secret of power. Is it not worth while to make the effort?
      • The great fact is that the source of all life and all power is from within. Persons, circumstances, and events may suggest need and opportunities, but the insight, strength, and power to answer these needs will be found within
    • The Six Basic Fears (Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill)
      • The fear of POVERTY
      • The fear of CRITICISM
      • The fear of ILL HEALTH
      • The fear of LOSS OF LOVE OR SOMEONE
      • The fear of OLD AGE
      • The fear of DEATH
  • Resources
    • Direct my effort to a realization of the mental resources, always at my command, from which all real and lasting power comes
    • Persist in this practice until I come to a realization of the fact that there can be no failure in the accomplishment of any proper object in life if I but understand my power and persist in my object, because the mind-forces are ever ready to lend themselves to a purposeful will, in the effort to crystalize thought and desire into actions, events, and conditions
  • Environments
    • Matter is powerless, passive, inert. Mind is force, energy, power. Mind shapes and controls matter. Every form which matter takes is but the expression of some pre-existing thought
