The chaos of an artists’ block ๐ŸŽ

Out of the countless ‘blocks’ I have faced so far, this one seems to be the best! I am thanking it n enjoying the apparent disconnection with art, for all the gifts it brings..

For starters, I am allowing myself to be okay with this disconnection! 


It brings a different kind of silence with it.I feel like I’ve lost my voice, cuz I have nothing to express. My perspective seems to have vanished. I do not feel like painting or writing..

Yeah this blog post seems like a kind of a saving grace..

And yet, this blank space, following multiple art works n silence after words that ring from my soul, seems to indicate the calm before the storm.

I’m intending to use this low, this calm as the footing for all the magnificence that’s gonna follow. 

For an extrovert, the urge to hold back, n sit in silence seems like a punishment. For an artist, this urge to ‘not express’ seems like a curse. N for a writer, not finding one’s strong voice seems like repression..

N yet, here I am welcoming this block with joy!!!

These are times that force the spontaneous souls, to take a break from their spontaneity! Think deeply about what really is of importance. What should their focus be on..

N voilร !!!! 

At the right time, the artist will find one’s voice, back in shape, n renewed with a new perspective ..

That is the ultimate gift this block can offer ๐ŸŽ

Joy vs Excellence

About children, the most fantabulous aspect is that they’re totally aligned with their joy..

Bubbles, butterflies, jumping in the muddy puddle.. they do stuff cuz they derive joy out of it ..

My son pretends to play a variety of instruments, none with an intention of mastering the knowledge ๐Ÿ™‚ lol

He does it because he feels joyful as his hands beat the tabla or he pretends to play the fake flute..

He loves the idea of it!!

We as kids knew it! What happened then?

We grew up? The faulty adults pushed us into believing we wouldn’t be good enough till we excelled at it??

Complete rubbish!!

Look at prodigys or famous people who have mastered art without learning it!! They simply followed their joy, with a leap of faith that appeared as if they were ‘gifted’..

Of course they were gifted in their relentless belief of the joy they pursued, without an iota of doubt!! N yes, that does make them gifted as compared to the ones who modified themselves to be un’gifted’

When we pursue our joys with doubts, they seem to block the flow of our gifts!!

Pursue the joy simply n forget about everything else!! There, we are all masters โ™ฅ๏ธ

Side effects of being AUTHENTIC -3

The side effects of shining one’s authentic self are many! For starters, we really get to enjoy the differences in opinion cuz we agree no two people can think ‘exactly’ alike one hundred percent!!

N that brings us to end up being our own best buddy! Cuz it’s not others job to get us..it’s our job to get us, n their job to get themself ..

And when everyone is just getting busy being WHO THEY ARE, it doesn’t matter what others think of you. ‘Difference of opinion’ one can say, n just ignore it all! 

It’s important for one, to totally understand their calling, n urges! What do they like, what do they dislike.. Being who they are n shining that light out, is why we came here.

I’m just gonna be doing my business n taking care of how happy I stay! What others think about that is their work not mine ๐Ÿ™‚

What say you??

Side effects of being AUTHENTIC -2

Being authentic, has its own side effects n if you’ve focused on expressing yourself, exactly the way you are, you will know that not many would get you completely..

N that’s the happiest part of choosing to be here on this planet!! 

We get to be our best buddy, even if that’s the only choice we have. It’s not a bad choice really..

Unless we become our own buddies, its tough to be someone else’s..

Happy work here, and authentic living is a ball game of its own!!

Side effects of being AUTHENTIC – 1

If you truly listen to the urges of your ‘calling heart’, you will realize how unique you are!

You chose to be here in this life, to express a combination of truths, n the combo is one of a kind ๐Ÿ˜Š 

Accepting the uniqueness of the expression, of who you are, means being willing to enjoy the differences of opinion/ viewing/ perspective ..

Rather than enjoying approval, are you willing to enjoy the differences ??

Onto something BIG

Always felt like something big was waiting for me on the other side of the breakthrough!
Was eager for the magic wand to do its job. Basically I was desperate for the breakthrough

Realized now,it’s the breakthrough that has been waiting for me to simply notice it!
There’s magic in realizing it’s all here ๐Ÿ™‚ 

The same old me, only new stuff is that I’m not after altering who I am.
I am embracing myself and yes, I am onto something big!!!! Really BIG๐ŸŽ

N it’s here:-) yay ๐ŸŽ

No Knowing = best knowing!!!

Sometimes no amount of ‘knowing’ is enough! 

For a parent of a teenager, knowing where their teenager is: not enough..

For a student, knowing everything that needs to be known, before an exam: inadequate..

For first time travellers of an unknown country, any amount of info known : may not be enough


The best knowing is the one where we deeply connect with that part of us that knows ‘all is well’. Come what may, we are safe. 

And this knowing doesn’t really need any information or details..

The best knowing ever!!!
