Artists (musicians, dancers, painters, etc.) experience being in what Diane calls “the flow” more frequently than most, I’d guess. It’s that feeling that what you are doing or creating is just happening, and you happen to be there at the time it is shaping itself. It’s a sense of being completely in the present, completely involved, completely in love with the process.
Meditation and solitude are ways of reaching that “flow” without anything actually happening, being created, or done. In fact, it is getting in touch with BEING pure and simple.
Before doing something worthwhile, we must BE someone worthwhile. And one step is to meditate, pray, or read something inspirational – alone.
