ZEN Shredding ~ Insight #11

Inspiration is the

essence of fulfillment.




Whatever you do, lead with inspiration.  When you are inspired, you will have the strength and fortitude to pursue your life even during the most challenging moments.  Surround yourself with people who inspire you, live in places that nurture you.  Take a moment each day to notice the perfection and inspiration that is present all around you.  Immerse yourself in the inspiration that lives inside you.


Extended commentary:


When was the last time you were inspired?

Do you pursue your life with an M.O. for inspiration?

Do your relationships inspire you?

Does your work inspire you?

Do you find inspiration in a hobby, a place or person?


Life is already very complicated. 

Finding inspiration in a song, a book or poem is often the simplest way to navigate a complex world.  Whatever juices you in life, inspiration is something that needs to be discovered and nurtured within our minds, bodies and Souls. 


All too often in life, regular routines and day to day demands can numb us down to ever present inspiration that lies in the heart of every, present moment.  The shock of overstimulation can also lead to desensitization in life where only the gift and pause of stillness can revitalize our fervor for the dream.


One thing I have noticed living in the mountain resort of Whistler is how many people come here looking for and finding the juice of inspiration.  Whether it’s for a weekend, six months, a year or lifetime, there is a magic in these mountains that provides the necessary inspiration to change a life forever. 


Regardless of where you live you can find and cultivate inspiration; ultimately location is only one in a series of elements that that can add meaning and purpose to your life.  The ultimate mystery of inspiration is that it lies within you, not without.  The world of form and phenomena is only a trigger or reflection of the unbounded inspiration that lies for the most part, untapped within you…         


What can you do to stimulate your inspiration?
