Jude Robison Creativity happens in the present moment
If we are missing our present life because we are so caught in thoughts about the past and the future, if we are living so much in the future and so much in the past and not in the present, then we are missing our life and we are missing lots of information about what's true for us.
It's strengthening that sort of flexibility and openness and fearlessness of our minds. We are training and we do that by noticing and coming back, noticing and coming back. It's like reps.
What creativity requires is a flexible brain. A brain that can go from right to left depending on what we need.
Basically, being present for our experience, in the moment, what ever it is—good, bad, indifferent. We are training to be present in our lives. This is the only moment we have.
Akira Satake Moments: Akira Satake
It's a collaboration between me, the fire, ash and the clay. So... it's many things that are very surprising.
As long as you have some passion, it's great. It doesn't matter if you are going to do it for the future or not.
When I am making some kind of mistake, I don't just ignore or feel bad, depressed - just step back and see that the result might be very interesting and might come back again and again.
