LightningDrawing in of breath; the act of inhalation.

Inspiration; from the French, inspiracion, from the Latin, inspirationem.

Latin links the word to the spirit, the shen, and we all know that inspiration is to be struck by a thought.

People say you can’t force inspiration – you can’t just make the creative spirit manifest whenever you want. Yet professional artists work hundreds of days each year; writers write hundreds of thousands of words for a book; marketeers invent new ways of looking at things each day; lovers create love each day. These natural masters do not wait to be in the mood.

Meditation creates space and time. Wu wei combines with tzu-jan to present novel pathways. Pu and an open heart accept all is possible.

Be struck! Sit! Walk! Breath and breath. Be struck!
