Making something

When we create something tangible, real, an object, art, a sculpture, making food, a cake, something from wood or metal, whatever that is…there is a real connection with the object and process. As humans we love to have that connection, however, in a mainly digital world, we are no longer crafting anything by hand.

When we work on a screen, the mind is active, the brain is constantly stimulated and when we are online, then there are endless distractions. However, when we do something manual and physical, the mind is quiet and we are in the moment enjoying the doing, we are concentrating and then we are at peace within.

Making something real is also creating a real life, this moment experience and that is the essence of life.

Go and build or make something and see how it brings joy.

Would you?

Would you still do art if no one bought it or could see it?

Would you still write your blog if no one read it?

Would you still sing if no one heard it?

Would you still make your music if no one could listen to it?

Would you still create if it was only for you?

Is what you do for others or for yourself?

The joy is in the doing as it takes place now.
