I think I’ve had an epiphany. In my 3rd post about Creativity, I mentioned that when I’m creating anything I have a wonderful sense of fulfillment and I feel energized. This week as I was listening to a Buddhist talk about being “in the present” it struck me that while I create Its that feeling that I experience… I’m in the present. I don’t thin about the past or the future. I see only the space in front of me and my mind is clear as I make the marks.
“Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.” -Buddha
