Mach Zero Podcast #21: “Accessing Radical Creativity”
Learn how to Access the Places of Most Potential
We live a life, as we create a life. We evolve as we create, as both
chess master and chess piece. Both happen simultaneously. JD
discusses how to increase both creative processes simultaneously by setting and committing
to a meaningful intention, and giving special attention to one’s quality
of attention. These two in combination bring concentration and
mindfulness together as powerful creative capacities. One is self-made
(motivated internally) and the other is inspired by life’s context (inspired
from outside). The creative process is a rich fusion of both in tandem,
as the future is learned by doing.
What short circuits these capacities are three usual suspects:
1) Our level of distraction from what matters; majoring in minor stuff
2) Trusting our voice of judgment when it goes live while still unchecked
3) Our voices of fear and cynicism that undermine courage and connection
Is there a manual override switch? JD suggests that we can cultivate
our capacity to dominate our actions by what matters to us as the centerpiece.
But to gather what really does matter and operate
from that place, we must open our mind, heart, and will
to sources of creative content that our experiences reveal to us as
we live into the future and unfold what is ready to emerge.
We establish and refine three key aspects constantly: 1) Our creative freedom
to access our future self, 2) Our creative value to access how others
can connect us to our capacity for compassion, understanding, and generosity,
and 3) Our creative purpose to access the destiny which stands in need of
us. We align the vertical connection (self), with the horizontal connection (other)
and the present moment connection (whole) to access the places of most potential
where are being informs our doing. This is creating from places where our most
basic goodness can expand and go where it belongs in the world.
