Inspiration

Inspiration (book cover) by Jina Wallwork

Inspiration

Inspiration—it is a friend whose gifts are endless. It speaks but also listens, constantly aware of the pathways that allow for creative release. Inspiration understands me and knows my capabilities, more than I do myself. As inspiration speaks, I focus only on the sound of the voice. Being a skilled communicator, inspiration reveals only what I am capable of understanding. I do not need to struggle; I am never confused or overwhelmed. Inspiration will only give me what I am capable of receiving. The gift is lost without the drive for expression that perpetuates its presence. The only way to summon inspiration is through expression. This is a bizarre and endless cycle. It reminds me of the question “Which came first, the chicken or the egg?” Expression and inspiration are a symbiotic partnership; one cannot exist without the other. When one is rejected, the other also will depart. To create you must be a friend to them both.
