I am a musician and artist.
I make music. I dream. I create beautiful artwork.
I don’t do it with the INTENT of creating music, or for the SAKE of creating art.
I do it because I feel inspired to play with sound and colour, and it just so happens that music and art are born from it.
I just love beautiful things, and the end result is music and art. But do I care for the music and art? YES. I care EQUALLY for the journey and the destination, but I never have the final destination in mind, planned, or controlled in anyway. Whenever I do, it just doesn’t work.
What about words? Well, again, it’s never the destination – the end result – of the words that matters. THAT is just a BYPRODUCT of the creativity process.
It’s all about the process. It’s all about the journey THROUGH creativity.
So I can NEVER sit down to write something specific, or to make specific sounding music, or specific looking art. THIS explains that whenever I DO try to do this, it turns out crap. And the ONLY way it will turn out good – or more to the point, the WAY for it to be ABSOLUTELY AMAZING – is to let it flow out however that is.
So, instead of going about life setting INTENTIONS, how about tweaking that to see what is born out of INSPIRATION?
Slight difference. Massive effects.
It’s just a slight tweak in how you do things, but the enjoyment factor – THE FLOW FACTOR – AND the beauty of the end result is DRAMATICALLY different. For the better. No – for the BEST.
So THIS is how you find flow – it is BORN out of INSPIRATION. It is NOT ever forced, or manufactured.
