The Excellent Writer Within
The art of
good writing comes from the artist within. All
humans have the ability to become great authors,
poets, artists and musicians, etc., so why do most
folks find it such a difficult task? Why do many
people say I could never be a writer or I could
never aspire to write poetry? And why do folks who
do write get discouraged when their work is
We are what we think, so if we believe we cannot
succeed in our daily actions, then for sure we will
never get away from our perception of who we think
we are. This self defeating attitude was not of our
making. As we were growing up and maturing into
adulthood, we were indoctrinated with thousands of
negative thoughts. This gave us a belief that we
are only a housewife or only a truck driver. This
limited vision of our role in life - gives us a
world over have great creativity. Once we start to
understand who we are and the reasons we exist, we
start to cultivate eloquent works of creativity.
Just writing worthy, meaningful literature will
not get the success it deserves unless we possess
the resolve to carry on writing in spite of the
critics. There will always be those who criticize a
writer, no matter how good the composition. Rejection is an everyday experience for most
writers. This is a joy we must accept and grow
from. Just because someone does not like our essay,
does not mean it has no value. It means it was not
acceptable to the editor or book reviewer that was
reading the essay.
We can do two things when we are constantly being
rejected. We can give up and say it was not meant
to be. Alternatively, we can say, "How do I become
a better writer and have my
work accepted by more of the 'establishment'?" Once
a small section of the general public
start to take an interest in our writing, the sheep mentality of the
'establishment' will no
doubt follow. It always has. It always will.
Success breeds success.
Until we can find the inner core of creativity and
start to write from the soul, we will never
become a great writer. We may achieve a modicum of
success by writing a few columns for a
newspaper or magazine but that could keep us in a
vacuum. We can scrape a living, but may
not amass a fortune, for we are trying to write and
trying will never cut the mustard.
The secret to excellent writing is to enjoy with
ecstatic abandonment each letter and syllable we
put down on paper. The pure joy of writing makes us
a success; nothing else will. Those
who tell us we have to struggle and sweat have not
grasped true meaning in their lives. We need no approval of any human to be a success.
Stop trying to become a success. We are a success
already. We were born.
We are a success of life. The sperm hit the egg and
here we are.
Everything else we do and achieve is just a bonus.
Life is to be enjoyed not endured. Joy brings true
meaning to life.
Now the next question to ask is what is Joy? What
does Joy mean and how do we achieve it?
Look within - take time to silence the mind and
feel the texture of nothingness. Smell the
perfume of celestial splendor. Discover the sound
of cosmic waves flowing though our
subconscious mind. Palpate infinity. Breath
eternity. Conceive the splendor of maturating into
the essence of a successful writer. Be the word,
become the poem, live the adventure.
Everything we do is inscribed in our book of life.
We just need to learn how to read the
instructions written within every cell and molecule
of our being. Each tissue and sinew bleeds
muscular power of infinite, majestic might. Fly on
the wings of limitless mastery. Escape the
shrouded cocoon and become the enchanting
butterfly. The dreams of authentic reality are
about to manifest a rainbow of magical
delights :-----: "Write On Time,":-----: "Compose in
Y-ourself (THE GENIUS)
