Life is not a permanent situation

During the pandemic shut down, I had the worst resistance to writing. The funny part is that the book is about breaking through resistance for writers. The irony did not go unnoticed. It was actually a great experience in hindsight, but I had to learn a few lessons experientially.

Think about it: you can understand something intellectually, philosophically, and even spiritually, but until you understand something experientially you really don’t actually know it. You can hypothesize about it, even teach it, but true learning comes when you are willing to experience it and really comprehend it. I realized one of the biggest forms of resistance I had was comparing myself to others on social media.

During the first six months of the pandemic, hundreds of thousands of people jumped on social media and suddenly I didn’t know why my writing mattered. Once I figured out how to pop out of resistance my whole world changed almost instantly for the better and not just in my writing, the shift took place in just about every area of my life. Expressing myself creatively and in writing opened a portal that unclogged my spiritual channels.

Life isn’t forever – we all know this to be true; so why should one spend their days writing when even they themselves could eventually become unimportant in history? Even if you create a bestseller published worldwide- at some point, people may no longer remember what was written, but that doesn’t mean your writing isn’t important. You have no idea how many people you inspire just by writing!

So please don’t stop creating because someday somebody might come upon YOUR story again centuries after its creation – instead keep going with raw passion knowing your words matter! The most important thing about life is not its length, but the experience. The feeling we get when creating something special can’t be replaced with anything else in life: our experiences give us value beyond measure. Don’t focus too much on winning awards or being a best seller; at least not right away (even though those do help). Live slowly but think big. Stay present on your journey and write your book!
