On Love, Creativity & Vulnerability

I would like to balance the sharing of my Warrior Archetype with my Lover Archetype.

Last month My Love Eleanor Tara wrote and recorded a song for me.

Shortly after receiving her Beautiful Musical Transmission of Love, I wanted to reciprocate.

This song by John Legend came to me as the perfect tune to capture my feelings for her.

This was my take two.

It is rough, but I don’t care.

Creativity is fueled by shipping.

Creativity is fueled by faithfully and shamelessly investing in the process.

I used to not sing, as little as a few years ago, because I was told could not carry a tune.

I used to not be able to dance.

I used to not be able to write.

I used to not know how to create a startup.

I used to not know how the world worked.

But I got better by showing up, by deliberately practicing, and putting myself out there, continuously and completely.

“Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through.” – Ira Glass

Creativity is fueled by Love.

Love for the self you are today

Love for the self you will become

Love for the people your transmission will touch

Rumi famously wrote, ‘You are the Universe in Ecstatic Motion”

Many Integral Philosophers like Ken Wilber, Marc Gafni and Daniel Schmachtenberger have pointed out that the Universe is Erotically Unfolding its Novelty unto Itself to come to know Itself.

I say, Creativity is inextricably connected to the Erotic Love Force that keeps the Universe in Ecstatic Motion.

You are the Universe Experiencing itself.

…More Rumi,“You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop.””

Through the Sharing of Your Creativity, You and the Universe are Simultaneously Loved into The Higher Self

An ever-present, ever-evolving Perfect Imperfect Self.

All of Me

Loves All of You.
