Inspiration is amazing, fun, and full of light. It is spontaneous and fascinating. Anything can flow out of inspiration - speech, actions, art, creativity - and it is so easy. It requires no planning, no thinking, no trying. It would be so nice to live without effort or overthinking. We would have more energy and excitement in our lives. There would be more surprises and sweetness in the world. We could solve problems easily and quickly. From inspiration arises the most beautiful poetry, the most amazing mathematical equations, and the most incredible inventions.
How do we live an inspired life? First, we can let go of unneeded worries and concerns about life, and trust that the universe has a much greater plan for us than we have created in our own mind. When the mind is empty of worry and anxiety, there is space for inspired guidance. We can hear that soft voice that gently guides us in a direction we could not have imagined.
How do we let go of worries and concerns about life? Simply relax and meditate. Cultivate a calm and peaceful mind. This may sound difficult since the mind typically jumps around like a monkey day and night. Well then, give the monkey mind something that soothes and heals it. For instance, sit in nature and tune in to her presence. A green forest or a blue ocean may be very calming to the mind. Furthermore, we may focus on relaxed deep breathing for a few minutes. Also, we may chant a beautiful mantra whose vibration heals the mind. With consistence, these practices may bring the mind into a peaceful state, and from this state of being, an inspired life springs forth.
