How to Receive Inspiration

I met with my poetry group yesterday. I find that writing poetry keeps me focused on fostering the creativity within. The following are thoughts on how we receive inspiration for writing.

“Through All That Happens”

As you unfold as an artist, Just keep on, quietly and earnestly,
Growing through all that happens to you.

You cannot disrupt this process more violently than by looking outside yourself for answers that may only be found by attending to your innermost feelings.

The thoughts were taken from:
“A Year With Rilke”
Daily readings from the Beast of Rainer Maria Rilke
Translated and edited by Joanna Macy & Anita Barrows

About holliequeener

I am an author. Which is defined as "the person who originated or gave existence to anything." So in that sense, we are all authors of some sort. More specifically I am a writer of fiction. I am a member of the Romance Writer’s Association and an active Pine Mountain Poet Society member.
