sitting quietly

doing nothing

and all is done

–Terry Chitwood

Let your thoughts come to rest like leaves swirling to the ground. Melding with the earth, even a gust of wind can’t stir them. With your thoughts rooted in the earth, your mind settles.

Ideas Forming

Effortlessly, from deep in the earth new ideas are forming, arising from the creative source, moving into your mind, going out through your pen and onto the page. You are doing nothing and yet everything is done.

A Vessel

Creativity happens. You’re not being creative; you’re creatively being. And from that being state creativity flows like a river through you and into the world. As s writer, you need to be a vessel through which the words flow and not the generator of the words.

Words

Writing happens. Words are first written on your heart before they’re written on the page. They live first in your soul before they live in the world. Write with abandon; set words free.
