“Do you have the courage to grab the dreams that picked you?” –Prince Ea
I’ve missed you guys. I’ve been on travel assignment (in Sweden) and giving a workshop (at the London Ritz) and meeting amazing people (Stacey Sargison-Shawe and her JFDI FB group are really rockin’a possibility posse).
But, as Randy Quaid said in the movie Independence Day, and Jack Nicholson said in The Shining, “I’m back!”
I’ve got a quick favor to ask. I’m doing a Facebook Live on the Hay House FB page on August 21 at 12 EST (9 PST). It’s to kick off my new book, Art & Soul, Reloaded. I’m a bit nervous, having to go LIVE…all by myself for 30 whole minutes.
So I’m hoping you will post questions in the comments section below. What would you like to know? What would you like me to talk about? No question is off-limits. If you can think of one, I’ll attempt to answer it.
For sure I’ll be talking about the new book which is all about creativity and spirituality which, to my way of thinking, are essentially the same thing.
The muses, the angels, the bigger thing (call it what you will) are currently advertising for people like you, like me who are willing to be a satellite dish for the new story. The old story, as I’m sure you’ve noticed, isn’t working anymore. The old story of lack and competition and distrust is getting boring. It’s time to birth a new world.
And we artists are the ones who will do it. Not the politicians or the corporations. It’s us, together, sharing.
The best part is that it’s really fun. Despite what you may have heard, creativity doesn’t require a load of hard work. It requires some discipline, but what else would you really rather be doing? Living life with joie de vivre is the absolute best possible way to spend your life.
It turns everything into a party. Here’s one tiny example. When I was in Manila in February, my compatriots and I were stuck in lots of traffic jams. We literally couldn’t move. Normally, that’s not considered a desirable life event. But we decided to make the most of it. We decided to channel James Corden and record our own carpool karaoke.
We had a blast. The point is, creativity is possible in every single situation, even those we previously judged as horrible inconveniences. When we live our lives from the perspective of knowing we’re blessed, knowing that every single thing that happens is for our own betterment, we can all relax and have more fun.
So, I hope you’re interested in coming along on the yearlong apprenticeship offered in Art & Soul. Those who are willing to play will learn to summon their muses and reclaim their bold, audacious, creative side. Or at least that’s what the subtitle promises.
So, please, join me on August 21 for my very first solo Facebook Live and help me out by asking a question in the comments below.
I love you all so, so much.
