Day 50: A Fountain Of Gratitude & Cookies

I am totally spent from a day full of channeling creative energy. Tomorrow prospective students will be coming to look at one of the institutes where I work in droves and we have been preparing for more than a month. The teachers are under a lot of pressure to create interesting performances and we have done just that.

The students have done such great work memorizing their lines for various parts of various performances and I am so proud of them. I made cookies to prove it. The first batch came out as one giant cookie and luckily my roommates came home in time to stop me from eating the whole thing.

Giant cookie = TEAspoon not TABLEspoon, got it.

In my hazy daze I’ve been dreamily wondering about the nature of creative energy; it’s not like physical energy, you don’t get it from ATP and glucose reactions in the chemistry of your body. Instead of something tangible it comes to us in the form of “inspiration” and we use our will power and physical power in tandem to create something new and (sometimes) wonderful. Creative energy becomes art like chemical energy becomes playing a sport. I guess that means that in the same way we have veins for proteins and carbohydrates to flow through, we must then have veins for inspiration to flow through.

Teaching a student of mine who is playing Planet Earth how to act sick and polluted.

How do you visualize the flow of creative energy through your body? I know this is how it feels to receive it but then what? What does your inspiration feel like?
