It’s all been said

Saying something new is a challenge for us all. Everything has been said. It’s a challenge for writers, musicians, artists…well, everyone actually.

However, this is true only to a certain extent.

Where we add value is taking all the influences that we experience and then adding our view of it. What each of us experience is unique to our own journey and the more adventure we add to the path, the more diverse our experiences are. Therefore, have more to add value to.

Simply repeating others is stealing, but adding our take is where the value comes. Our own unique world view is where the difference is.

We each have an opportunity to add that value and there is where we can say something new.

And then I thought

'Thought' by Philip Dodson

I want to do…

And then I thought.

I’d like to make…

And then I thought.

My heart tells me to say…

And then I thought.

I’d love to…

And then I thought.

My soul aches to be the light…

And then I thought.

This is the cycle we get trapped in when the mind is energised and we associate with our thoughts. Thinking halts action.

Be still, be conscious, allow this moment to be, let your thoughts float by and leave. Fear will subside and dissolve. Creativity flows from the soul and we then use our mind as the amazing tool that it is to manifest that creativity not to sabotage us with the ramblings of the untrained mind and its ego.
