2. don’t be selfish

The creative process can be a tortured hiding from the world.

When you paint, you close the door and put on music to let your your fingers dance in color, water, light.  When you teach, you turn on the teacher’s mask and preach a philosophy you hope one day to embody.  When you write, you turn your back on the world and let words birth from thoughts and fingers.

It is all a type of hiding, a way of stuffing yourself away so that something is born; painting, learning, a poem or more.  We recede in order to create and to make room for the new tide’s bounty.

When it’s born, don’t hide it anymore.  Don’t be selfish.  Don’t let the “It’s not good enough” or “I’m a phony.” or “I’m not qualified…” prevent you from disclosing something that could change the world for even one person.

No act is useless if it is given in selfless service.  

Let what’s born perform.  Let what’s born push into the world and be free.
