Don’t think but create
We all know how difficult can be to sit down and focus on something, especially something highly creative like writing or painting, and especially when we are dealing with worries, anxieties, pressures of life and such. But it can be any task that requires that the mind becomes peaceful and serene to focus wholy. This happens to me, and it really can be frustrating.
What I have found is that the secret is to sit down and do it, no excuses, no overthinking. Thinking that much makes it seem even more difficult. Our mental energy is depleted quickly if we think too much. Just write and do whatever you have to do. You’ll polish it and fix it later. First, allow your mind to get into a flow and start creating.
Anything we do really requires that our minds are silent. A silent mind is a mind that is not making excuses, judging, fearing and overthinking. We live in a world that is busy and running 24/7, so it is of the most intelligent and brave among us to stop and look into our minds to seek this needed silence.
And from this silence many great ideas are discovered, and solutions to problems, and depth in understanding, and the wisdom to know what love and happiness are. In this silence we also find guidance for our lives. I, as an author, find that from this same silence my best ideas emerge.
Like if I’m stuck in the middle of the story, or if I don’t know what path to create for my characters next. It doesn’t have to be a struggle, not if we practice daily to silence our minds; thus teaching our minds to get used to a new lifestyle where mental silence is priority.
