Creativity is an escape

arrangement-4420041_640.jpg

She was present enough but for real never seen

her endevours to reach others restless have been,

a poet like her lives in a word apart from others

and can write about, but never stand that we are all brothers.

 

She dares to be creative as it is her last train to catch

she would write a whole book from a single body scratch,

she has imagination wide as the universe itself

and a dream for books of hers standing on a bookshelf.

A poem for a life plan

A day goes by and it ain’t a lie

it comes a time you want to cry,

life exhaust us every now and then

until a rainbow comes all of a sudden.

 

We must learn to nurture our faith

to raise your vibration is never too late,

changing your thoughts is a step to take

from old patterns give your mind a break.

 

Life awards us for the effort we put

to cheer up and make our soul soot,

be your own hero, clear up your mind

it’s the path that helps inner peace to find.

The courage as a crucial spice in a career change

To start this writing with an “I am” it is definitely the most necessary thing I should do now. For the sake of my own health, and by health, I mean needs and necessities to feel good about yourself.

I am a writer, an artist. And you have no idea how much energy do I need to convince myself to believe in my ability to write, and not only in the ability but to believe that that is who I am, that is what I want to be perceived by society. I wrote the first paragraph just to emphasize the importance of self – confirmation for a person with an artistic mind like mine. By writing “I am a writer”, I use it as an affirmation, as a confirmation for all of the above written.

I am explaining things this way because there comes a time in life when an artist realizes that he is just not a fit in the system as it is functioning. What does that mean? An artist cannot stand the patterns! He does not need a 9 to 5 job to embrace his creativity. He needs no ties with the time, with the clock. He needs a variety of things in his life, or sometimes he/she just needs stillness and nothing else.

If an artist is stuck in an 8-hours-job-world, the first thing he would need to break free from it is courage. Of course, he/she must plan the incomes, must plan how would he be supported financially, but in the end, a true artist’s wish is never to be rich in his pockets, but in his soul!

A prison break from the 9 to 5 pattern

I started working 8 hours a day since my graduation. It was a good opportunity for a start, a position in a company that allowed me to learn new things and enter the corporate world. But there has been a year and my motivation was going down. So after a year and a half, I quit. I started teaching with flexible hours but the money was not enough. And from this point of view, it wasn’t that bad. After a while, I started another job 9 to 5 and got the same feeling of being in prison again. Then I found myself in writing. I worked as a remote content writer. The money was not enough again. And so did I decided. I am going back to prison: I started another job, worked for a few months and got bored, so I started another job, and here I am feeling like in prison.

That is how my story was going until now. Either I would have the pleasure of work and very little money or no pleasure at all with a decent amount paid.

I am a writer, I write poetry and novels, I express myself throughout creative writing. Create is my motive, and sitting in an office with some papers around me is a prison to me. Even if it is creating web content, it is still writing. How should a man balance between what the system implies us what to do, and our minds? If you have your left which is more logical hemisphere more active, you will probably be a good fit in the business world. But if you are any kind of artist, you might find it very difficult to feel comfortable in that world.

How does the prison look like? You have tasks to do, but you feel like you want to get out of your skin, leave it on the desk and you, the real you, meaning your being, to escape and go create something. Most of the people are finding it comfortable to be part of the business world. It drives their motivation and ambition and they aim for success that the business world offers. Artists are different. Their thoughts can come now and leave for 2 days. Their inspiration can occur in a specific place. Their creativity is the essence of their existence. If they are not nurturing it, they are going to be dead inside. Their bodies will be still here, but their insight, their being will be dead. They might face depression for example.

So what is the salvation? Balancing is the key to life. Let’s suppose, you should walk the world holding a spoon with 2 drops of oil in it. If you just take care of the drops, you would not see the beauties around you. If you don’t take care of them, you will lose them. Keep an eye on both of them. Life is a struggle. But it is a nice struggle. Use a different world for struggle and change your perspective. Something like a challenge, or striving. Oh, striving sounds good. Strive for balance, and for enjoying the road to the aims you got.

Until next time,

A simple poem

A poem comes my way

I dare to catch her

so I do a moment before she goes away.

Poetry makes sense

only if the poet

gives his soul to the eternal universal dance.

This all might not even look like a poem

but I dare to write my thoughts

since they are the very being of mine

they are my existense

they represent my urge to lift the world’s vibration,

and make it gentler and nicer

to fragile souls like me.

To write, or not to write…

I am a writer, or at least I consider my self to be one. I have published one online book, I have my blog, and I have published 2 printed editions into my mother tongue. Hmm, saying this, I guess I am one.

But being a writer is sometimes a very difficult thing. Last night I was staring in the laptop for hours and managed to write 2 more sentences, and delete the previous two. I was like: what is the problem with me? Why doesn’t it flow like a river?

Then I got a revelation. To write, you need to prepare your head. All I was doing in the last period, last weeks, I was here and there but never down in my head, focused on an idea. And it is easy if you have one. The problem is I still do not have one.

So what does writing means? Writing means that you have to stay focused on the act of writing even when you are not doing that, you need to think about writing itself, you need to be relaxed, you need to know what you want, and what the audience would want, and you must manage to find the thin line between both. Writing means that you have to lose yourself. You cannot expect to be as effective in your other obligations and still be effective in writing, because writing makes your head float in the clouds.

Writing is, however, what I want to do with all the pieces of my body. Maybe having expectations makes an additional pressure.

So, here is a plan: relax, focus, think, get an idea, make a concept, and then WRITE!

Until the next reading,
your Sage unknown.

 

There is always a chance to get back on track

Dear bloggers,

it has been a while since I was gone. I was writing in my mother tongue only, but here I am wanting to get back on track with my articles and verses in the English language.

In life, we live all sorts of staff. We go through everything every day. Today I would like to express my apology to you, who have been supporting me over the years I have been active on this blog. I hope you’ll be kind to forgive me for the pause and let us support us mutually and share our best thoughts.

The title of the article is not only connected to the “getting back on the blog”, but also to the “getting back on track in life”. I have been (as many) through rough times in life, disappointments, periods where you feel like your live cuts you off all the possibilities etc. but, most of the times, even all of the times, it has been shown that those moments exist to make you a stronger person, to change you, to make you being adjustable to the life that comes ahead.

Yesterday I wrote some lines that I try to get into my head since it is easier to say something than to apply it on yourself. I wrote:

Everything happens at a certain time
with its “why” and “because of”,
that is just invisible
since we are blinded
by our personal ideas for the same…

What I wanted to say here is that the periods that make us stronger are actually because of us idealizing what happens to us, and once we are in touch with the reality (at a certain moment) we fall apart. The moment we are falling apart we have to understand that everything happens at a certain time for a certain reason, and life is not against us, it is just the illusion we had that blurs our mind and sight.

Every moment that leads us to fall apart makes us be reborn again once we feel the pain of removing the upper skin (the illusion) there is a new dress coming up making us ready for a party. It is just that we have to understand that at a certain time we have to let the skin removal be painful for some greater reason.

Stay cool until the next reading…

Lots of love

Life goals

large

When the autumn dresses the favorite yellow clothing

her thoughts start somehow in her head floating;

to complete here life goals she never gave up

she was thinking about them over every coffee cup.

 

Life tests the will of a man now and then

either nothing happens or all of a sudden,

but one thing one should carry always with him

it’s to believe in miracles and coming true of a dream.
