“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters, compared to what lies within us” RW Emerson
“That we often resist what we most need” Artist Way
Below you will find three most important principles, chosen from our guide book The Artist Way.
- Creativity is our God’s gift to us. Using our creativity is our gift back to God.
- The refusal to be creative is self-will and is counter to our true nature.
- Our creative dreams and yearnings come from a divine source. As we move toward our dreams, we move toward our divinity.
The three basic tools we will use on our path to clarity, grounding and passion will be:
- The morning pages
- The prompts
- The Artist Dates (evenings / weekends)
Most of the work we will do every week, on Saturday, will be in fact play. Please make sure that you devote at least an hour per day for the tools in practice.
Remember – start your day writing morning pages – your stream of consciousness thoughts. This is the first thing you will do after jumping out of bed and it will become a daily habit soon.
The path to our clarity, grounding and happiness will be spiral. We will go from initial stages of curiosity and play, through the anger and pain, until we reach our final destination: Crystal clear plan for our creative life, feeling of grounding, and connectedness with ourselves.
