Awakening and Creativity

Spiritual awakening is a bit like the creative process, because when you engage in meditation or introspection or inquiry, if youโ€™re motivated by money or getting you want or anything like that it pollutes the process. Itโ€™s more important to be open and to play and be curious, to be intuitive and fearless rather than be wondering what youโ€™re going to get out of it and how youโ€™re going to benefit.

And Iโ€™m talking about process here. Because itโ€™s OK to want things and to be motivated and incentivised in general, but any artist or creative will confirm that itโ€™s that mode of play and wonder that opens up our intuition and leads to us deeper truths and greater joys.

Because remember, whatโ€™s being sought here is not learning, but discovery. Not achievement, but transformation. So just do it (whatever โ€˜itโ€™ is for you) for itโ€™s own sake, follow your bliss and discover the truth on itโ€™s own terms.
