How to Get Out of Your Own Way and Unblock the “Spiritual Electricity” of Creative Flow. By Maria Popova “No matter what your age or your life path … it is not too late or too egotistical or too selfish or too silly to work on your creativity.”

How to Get Out of Your Own Way and Unblock the “Spiritual Electricity” of Creative Flow

“Art is not a thing — it is a way,” Elbert Hubbard wrote in 1908. But the question of what that way is, where exactly it leads, and how to best follow it is something artists have been grappling with since the dawn of recorded time and psychologists have spent decades trying to decode, outlining the stages of creativity, its essential conditions, and the best technique for producing ideas. In 1978, a few months after she stopped drinking, artist, poet, playwright, novelist, filmmaker, composer, and journalist Julia Cameron began teaching artists — by the broadest possible definition — how to overcome creative block and get back on their feet after a “creative injury.” Art by Sydney Pink from 'Overcoming Creative Block.' Writing in the introduction to the 10th anniversary edition, Cameron adds to the most beautiful definitions of art:

The 7 Laws Of Attraction

Did you know there were 7 Laws Of Attraction? Well, it was a surprise to me. Though after I sought more information about the 7 Laws of Attraction, I found that they really are just individual elements broken down into subsets of the main Law. If you read them closely, they are familiar concepts included within the best Law of Attraction teachings. They teach that we attract things into our lives based on our beliefs (being), thoughts, words and actions. Baron magazine has been changing our consumption of porn since 2012.

Joan Didion on Keeping a Notebook. By Maria Popova “We are well advised to keep on nodding terms with the people we used to be, whether we find them attractive company or not.”

Joan Didion on Keeping a Notebook

As a lover — and keeper — of diaries and notebooks, I find myself returning again and again to the question of what compels us — what propels us — to record our impressions of the present moment in all their fragile subjectivity. From Joan Didion’s 1968 anthology Slouching Towards Bethlehem (public library) — the same volume that gave us her timeless meditation on self-respect — comes a wonderful essay titled “On Keeping a Notebook,” in which Didion considers precisely that. Though the essay was originally written nearly half a century ago, the insights at its heart apply to much of our modern record-keeping, from blogging to Twitter to Instagram.

6 Things {Sexy Consciously Awake} Women Want From Sex

I am an awake women who will not be held down. I am here to do great things for what other reason is there to live and breathe. “If you want to be the kind of lover women never forget, then it’s time to seriously educate yourself on the art of sex. An erection is not enough to make us feel the depth of your energetic being as a man, nor to connect us to higher planes.” Contrary to popular belief, women are not less sexual than men, we’re just wired differently.

While men can get an erection and go from zero to hero in less than five minutes, most women need a whole heck of a lot more than that to feel sexually satisfied. Let’s get one thing straight: women love sex. Men, do you want to see your woman’s body convulsing in orgasms? Then listen up! “Consciously awake women want more than physical sex. You are more than your physical body, which is but one level of your existence. Physical sex will only take you so far. MEN!! #2 Passion Peace. Saudade. Saudade (European Portuguese: [sɐwˈðaðɨ], Brazilian Portuguese: [sawˈdadi] or [sawˈdadʒi], Galician: [sawˈðaðe]; plural saudades)[1] is a Portuguese and Galician word that has no direct translation in English. It describes a deep emotional state of nostalgic or profound melancholic longing for an absent something or someone that one loves. Moreover, it often carries a repressed knowledge that the object of longing may never return.[2] A stronger form of saudade may be felt towards people and things whose whereabouts are unknown, such as a lost lover, or a family member who has gone missing.

Saudade was once described as "the love that remains" after someone is gone. Saudade is the recollection of feelings, experiences, places or events that once brought excitement, pleasure, well-being, which now triggers the senses and makes one live again. In Brazil, the day of Saudade is officially celebrated on 30 January.[3][4] History[edit] Origins[edit] Definition[edit] Elements[edit] Music[edit] Désire. Children of Hags: photographer captures heterochromians with different-coloured eyes – Llamas' Valley. By Llamas' Valley | “Heterochromia – Children of Hags” is a conceptual photography project by Amsterdam based Lithuanian photographer and Llamas’ Valley contributor Maria Cavali.

The photographer keeps looking for people who have differently coloured eyes and photographs them. The project started as a conceptual idea of an identity project. It continued as mythological research and now it has developed into something extremely adventurous. Maria says she feels absolutely in love with all the people she photographs and the amazing stories she’s been able to hear and share. A good question - my attempt in answering it. Why you really should keep a journal, no matter how cheesy that sounds. If you've spent any significant time reading books or articles on the "science of happiness", you'll have encountered what I've long thought of as the Cheesiness Problem. It's an inescapable fact that some of the most thoroughly evidence-backed techniques for enhancing one's mood are also the most excruciatingly embarrassing – the sorts of things that those of us who imagine ourselves to be rational, sceptical types would never dream of confessing to.

This is awkward, since (as I've written before) it means having to choose between maintaining a pose of sardonic detachment or doing what actually works. Life. The Present - Universal Truth - The Ultimate Truth. A man should look for what is and not for what he thinks should be. Albert Einstein Truth you can check: It is as matter of fact as the ground and as useful as food. It's the kind of truth that can make hate and war as unnecessary as ignorance.
