Finding your voice is extremely important to an artist and requires patience and hard work. Commitment has to be your best friend. It is not that from day one that someone finds their flow. It takes sincerity to invoke the creative energies within you to command you into a continuous expression of your creativity.
Many platforms have ensured that those that didn’t know they were creative, found their voice and was able to create something valuable to them.
However, as humans, we need to think about what we feed our minds with and what does our mind tend to follow, which direction does it go to. When we look at something, is it distracting you from reality? Is it taking you down a rabbit hole? The ego finds much joy in this.
Each day that has passed by, I have been very mindful on what mind listens to, reads and eventually what it acts upon. This is the contract that I have given myself and that is that more pure the mind can get, the better. It is important to follow whatever shows you reality as it is.
The ability to wonder is truly what makes life worth living. I am sure there have been moments for you when you have seen the world through the eyes of wonder. You see things with a new vision, you see things in a new light and nothing ever looks repeated.
Sometimes, I feel that I lack wonder when it is such a natural state to be in. I tend to judge things or interpret things when really if I truly saw it with wonder, it could open new doors to perception.
It may be that words are never enough to express the importance of wonder but let me give you three ways that being in wonder has helped me so far:
- I understand the limitations to my perception when I view things with the past or the future.
- I gain new insights and can express creatively.
- Love flows not only freely but endlessly too.
Being in wonder has been a spiritual goal of mine for quite some time now, it is the letting go of the ego which is so important if we want to live a life of wonder.
Being a slave to the ego only harms what wonder can bring. Like I said, that open-mind, that creative mind is what makes the world a better place.
