A Professional

Nov

“Someone once asked Somerset Maugham if he wrote on a schedule or only when struck by inspiration. “I write only when inspiration strikes,” he replied. “Fortunately it strikes every morning at nine o’clock sharp.”

That’s a pro.

In terms of Resistance, Maugham was saying, “I despise Resistance; I will not let it faze me; I will sit down and do my work.”
Maugham reckoned another, deeper truth: that by performing the mundane physical act of sitting down and starting to work, he set in motion a mysterious but infallible sequence of events that would produce inspiration, as surely as if the goddess had synchronized her watch with his.

He knew if he built it, she would come.”

Excerpt From: Steven Pressfield & Shawn Coyne. “The War of Art.” Visionary Press, 2012.

Spiritual Vision

Nov
15
“Spiritual vision literally cannot see error, and merely looks for Atonement. All solutions the physical eye seeks dissolve. Spiritual vision looks within and recognizes immediately that the altar has been defiled and needs to be repaired and protected. Perfectly aware of the right defense it passes over all others, looking past error to truth. Because of the strength of its vision, it brings the mind into its service. This re-establishes the power of the mind and makes it increasingly unable to tolerate delay, realizing that it only adds unnecessary pain. As a result, the mind becomes increasingly sensitive to what it would once have regarded as very minor intrusions of discomfort.”

Excerpt From: Anonymous. “A Course in Miracles, Combined Edition.” Lulu.com, 2011-08-02. iBooks.

How to be a Rockstar

Oct
28

It's part of an average morning - rise from bed, start a pot of coffee, scarf a banana - and have a look at everyone's (current) favorite social networking site, Facebook.

Much like any other morning, there are things to "like".  A friend posted the following 5 Things to Remind Yourself Daily on his profile, and it moved something inside me.  [True confession: I read it on the iPad while still in bed - it's "what" drew me into my morning.]  It isn't often that a watermarked image like this will draw me to the website of origin, but I had a quick look at rawforbeauty.com, and fetched a second image with equal power.  It's not as likely to become a daily admonition device for me - but I felt it was blogworthy.

If you wanna be a rock star - start on the inside!
