Well….After a long absence, I’m back at my keypad doing what I do best. Writing. I have been non-stop movement from a bevy of personal transitions coupled with a steady work load. In the process, I put my most valuable asset on the back-burner, my writing. I recently came across a quote by Michael Bernard Beckwith, “When we grasp that our thoughts and actions are energetic movements which create specific results, we understand what creativity is…” Nothing takes place on the back-burner. We create our future with every action and thought we make in the present. Intention and attention. Are you spending time engaged in activities necessary to bring your goals to fruition? I know, for me, I get side-tracked on those little tangents sometimes. And I have to pause, to exhale, and bring my self back to my original intentions.
Don’t get me wrong, 2012 has been a awesome year. I have accomplished much of what I set out to do. But the year moved at a frantic pace. My goal for 2012 is to achieve a sense of flow and balance; to find ease in my schedule and in carving out the focused time I want to simply allow thoughts to emerge, as opposed to being in a constant state of thought…. To create. To unfold.
So expect much more from the “Zen Producer.” I look forward to your comments and to a new dialogue.
“This is the Zen approach: Nothing is there to be done. There is nothing to do. One has just to be. Have a rest and be ordinary and be natural.” -Osho
