'Inspiration' Chapter


What inspires you is what you are, and when you think that the object of your inspiration is separate from self or unattainable to self, that is what leads to the belief “I cannot be”. There is one will and that will is “I am”. There is but one sin, and that sin is “I cannot be”. Ones personal inspiration is like a song, but experiences can inspire “variations on a theme”. Your theme will endure, but which variation you are singing may differ from one circumstance to another.

Can you life a life without inspiration? The answer is no, because inspiration is your very life itself. It’s your spiritual fingerprint and the essence that has let you have any awareness at all, let alone take any actions or have any experiences.

“Do not quench your inspiration and your imagination; do not become the slave of your model.” Vincent van Gogh (Dutch Painter, one of the greatest of the Post-Impressionists, 1853-1890)

“The glow of inspiration warms us; it is a holy rapture.” Ovid (Ancient Roman classical Poet and Author of Metamorphoses, 43 BC-17)

“Over-preparation is the foe of inspiration” Napoleon Bonaparte (French General, Politician and Emperor (1804-14). 1769-1821)
