Love or Ego

This morning I had another insight about the creative process.  Here goes.  Creating anything from a place of ego, will wind up in frustration and fear.  Creating anything from a place of love, winds up going smooth and can be deemed a success.   Love is the place to work from.   Ego feeds on fear. Ego doesn't want anyone to succeed, it just needs to be fed.  Love feeds on more love.  Coming from a place of love everyone succeeds.  The creative well doesn't dry up.  Coming from love, the posibilities are endless. Ego shuts everything and everyone down. Folks might say, "Well, a strong ego means a strong confident person." I disagree big time.  Ego pops up when fear is in play.  It is how we cover up (not very well) that we are afraid of being found out and maybe not who we say we are.  Ego is a part of us, yet it is the fearful place in us. The side that is doesn't want the world to see who we really are for fear of not being accepted.
Love is all about joyful acceptance.  It brings out who we really are, warts and all.  If you are stuck.  Try loving the situation or person you are currently in. (sometimes very hard to do. Doesn't mean allowing them to run over you or abuse you.)  Most of all love you.
Operate from a place of love. Creative and life will flow.  End of insight.

Are you operating from a place of love or ego.

Until next week...create to feel great.

  1. Aww... The owl is cute. But I guess it would look better if the bag was darker but still it's pretty.
