“Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’, into the future…” ~ Steve Miller
This missive addresses the element that prevents most ideas from manifesting – waiting.
Now, a quick side-note. Many ideas should not manifest through the creative process. Many of my own, thankfully, did not pass from my mind, through the mystical process of creativity, and into worldly reality. So, if you’re not sure if your idea is worthy – if it will likely have a negative impact on the world, if it has no intrinsic goodness to it – then, by all means, do not follow the advice in this installment of “How to Create.”
But, let’s assume the idea is worthy. It is beautiful. It will make people think, understand, grow, experience happiness. Well, then, here’s the lesson:
GET BUSY ON IT RIGHT NOW!
Stop reading this and start working on that which will bring something great to others who will behold it when it’s done. It’s your duty! It’s why you’re here! It’s why you were born! For me, this is what I must do now — inspire you to stop reading my words and jump into creating something worthy of your fellow man. (Having trouble pulling the abstract “fellow man” into your imagination. Your fellow man shall be pictured as this: the person you love most in all of existence.) Create it for them. Create it for them now!
YOU SHOULD NOT STILL BE READING THIS!
