Happy 300th Post J’iam! A look inside the creative process.

Today marks my 300th post! It seems as if I have reached the crest of the hill and from now onwards my path will be easier because I’ll be going downhill!

 

Yesterday I did a drawing with a woman with her mouth absolutely jam packed full of cigarettes! I am going to use that in a future article called, “The Perversity of Mankind.”

 

“Bing!!” I have just had the thought to put an inscription with it – “Doctor, never tell a smoker they are only allowed to smoke once a day!” In fact I’ll do that right now! There you are, you just saw an act of creation!

 

You see creation is a process. First I drew the picture on a piece of paper and then took a photograph of it. Then I cleaned it up in the computer to make it into a black and white picture only. Then I transferred to a colour format and proceeded to join up the lines so they contained the colour without spilling it out onto the whole canvas.

 

Next I coloured in the flesh tones, the hair, the lips and then coloured the cigarettes to make them look alight. Then I put highlights and dark tones into it and decided to decided to make the eyes look down instead of straight ahead. Lastly I added the smoke. Each step is saved as a separate picture so I can go back if I want to change something.

 

You see blogging is also a creative process for me. I have only once sat down without an idea for a blog and I wrote in the title box, “HMMMMM!” and went to the first line and the thoughts started flowing! Ten years ago I just couldn’t write, but God wants me to write now and so I am directed by Him – “His will, not my will!”

 

God will never ask you to do a job beyond your capacity. Just keep on improving yourself a little every day with a desire to succeed and you will!

 

Yesterday I purchased a 7B pencil as I have finally started to draw in pencil – black and white. It has taken me 60 years to reach this stage as I think and dream in colour pictures! Only by studying the masters have I started on this new path. So life continues till the moment we die. Do things to make your life better – a little each day.

 

That adds up to a lot of improvement over a years – 365 of them. And a huge improvement over 10 years 3,650 of them! And a massive amount over fifty years – 18,250! Do you think a person with 365, 3,650 or 18,250 improvements is still going to be on the same level as a man who does nothing to improve his life? Methinks not!

 

Life is either a do-it-to-yourself-project or a have-it-done-to-you-project! And guess who carries out the have-it-done-to-you part? Karma of course! Lol!

 

kindest regards,

May Love, Detachment, Health, Happiness, Peace, Success and Prosperity BE yours,

What is wrong with this picture?

Imagine yourself swimming in a pool of cash, getting out of it and re-entering your huge mansion on the tropical beach front! And then leaving your mansion in your Maseratti to go into town to buy a few $10,000 tailor made suits. What is wrong with this picture?

Well, where is your spouse, where are your children and where are your friends and family? No where to be seen! Why is that? Because the picture I painted only concentrated on HAVINGness, not BEingness! You see. that is the picture we are sold every day by the material world.

But imagine living in that situation without friends, a lover and spouse or your children and friends! LONELY, lonely, lonely! To be really successful we have to concentrate on our BEingness first, then our doingness and then our havingness takes care of itself automatically. The dreams of riches are only dreams of havingness. Let me tell you this – this dream only appeals to those in LACK. 

When we are struggling with money and circumstances of lack it is true that a certain amount of extra money would make us happier – by relieving the stress. But what we don’t realise is that excess money is a stress situation that is far worse than lack of money! 

So at first the relief is great. But within a very short time the money excess problems start occurring. We have to concentrate of our BEingness because we will always BE who we are (Life is either a do-it-to-yourself project or a have-it-done-you project) Unless we develop our BEingness to a greater extent than we create our money making abilities then we are headed into the poverty of Riches. If we create a bigger BEingness than havingness then we are headed into an empowered state called WEALTH. Simple as that!

And that is the problem with our scenario – it only offers riches!  And let me tell you something – having been rich myself – it is an ugly scene full of ugly people and hateful actions. I left riches and, knowing no better, went straight into Poverty, another negative state of lack. It took me years to cast out to find the secrets of wealth and when I did I was handsomely rewarded! 

Riches is a bit like rejecting marriage and deciding that you’ll only use hookers! It soon pales as, no matter how much money you pay for sex, it will never translates into LOVE! Life without LOVE is hell. Doing and having are not complete answers. 

BEing, doing and having is the complete answer!

Of course it is far easier to do and have! But the results are far harder to live with! Creating our BEingness is far harder, but the results are far easier to live with!

If I offered you the choice of creating an easy hell for yourself or a hard made Heaven, which one would you choose? Heaven of course! But so many are chasing the easy riches solution that they fail to see beyond the initial illusion of riches and that they are actually creating a future Hell for themselves!

 

Yes you can have all the things you want in your ego, but first fulfill the things of the heart! It takes longer, but the results last a lifetime! Wealth is simply the state of riches with inner BLISS and HAPPINESS (Riches are added to BLISS and HAPPINESS which are made first!)!

So remember – First BE, then Do and then have! Or as farmers would say, First prepare the soil, then plant the seeds and then reap the crop!

It is only a slight difference in direction, but if you can’t BE happy where you are now, how are you going to be happy in a different place?

kindest regards,

May Love, Detachment, Health, Happiness, Peace, Success and Prosperity BE yours,
