Creation As Meditation

The creative process is to me the eight limbs of yoga practice. Even the breath is essential …prana….life.

I prepare my body with asana, then connecting to the breath I slowly begin to distill and concentrate my senses: sight, sound, touch, taste, smell, so I am awake, intensely alert in the moment.

My concentration is intense and focused like a laser light beam on the story I am telling, the photo I am taking or the image I am bringing to life.

The world falls away, mindless chatter becomes nonexistent or white noise. My mind embraces a new way of seeing.

Just being.

I move into a state of meditation where there is only me and the creative mystery.

Here I find my bliss, my happiness.
