At the moment, I struggle to come up with a single thought that is worth writing about.
Instead of holding resistance to that fact, I choose to surrender.
According to Eckhart Tolle, “Through non-resistance, the quality of whatever you are doing or creating is enhanced immeasurably. The results will then look after themselves and reflect that quality.”
So as I sit and write with non-resistance, I observe my mind as it tries to form the hope that something spectacular will rise up out of it. What will come out of non-resistance to the reality of the situation, which is that I lack in creativity at the current moment?
I could walk away from the computer. Sit, read, go about my day, search for inspiration, or just be still. I can surrender to the stillness. I can surrender to the absence of creativity and accept that today is not the day to play. I’ll hold a space for its return—an open inner landscape, uncrowded by thought or expectation, ready to invite it in its various forms so I can dance with the process of manifesting creativity into pretty words and phrases.
I suspect that my creativity is traveling away from this wintry day to someplace tropical. Upon its return, I hope I catch a feeling of warmth—residue from its travels as it places itself thoughtfully into my mind.
