Inspiration

“To imagine is everything, to know is nothing at all”.
- Anatole France

Lets take a quick look at what is responsible for all those ideas in the first place, your brain. Many popular scientific books begin by calling the brain “the most complex object in the universe” Your brain is composed of over 10 billion neurons connected by more than 10 trillion synaptic connections, all this in a soft, pink package weighing in at a few pounds. Amazing.

“All men who have achieved great things have been great dreamers”.
- Orison Swett Marden

In theory, this would give the brain an astronomical quantity of “degrees of freedom”. Put another way, your brain appears to be a processor capable of generating endless variations and expressive configurations. We are powerful beyond measure!

O.K. so why is it so hard to write a song. Sometimes one word gets me stuck for hours, how can my brain be capable of generating “endless variations” when I can’t think of a simple rhyme or melody?

“You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club”. - Jack London

Maybe, there’s a better way to access the idea stream of endless variations. Maybe there is a way to automatically enter the pure creative state, every time you try.

The brain seems to be a virtual space of free play. Just think about that phrase for a second, a virtual space of free play. The mere act of thinking gets transposed into a game of linking all those neurons with synapses. There is a virtual playground in your head and I’you need to swing on the mental monkey bars.

“Imagination has brought mankind through the dark ages to its present state of civilization. Imagination led Columbus to discover America. Imagination led Franklin to discover electricity”. - L. Frank Baum

You have to have the need to express yourself. Ask your self – why do I have to be a songwriter? Why do I have to write this song? Yes, you have the need to interpret your experiences and ideas through story and song. From nothing to something - through you the songwriter. All great things take time, you must be patient with yourself and the process of accessing your creative state. The more you concentrate on being creative and thinking creatively, the easier it will become to "be inspired"

"I'm the interpreter. I'm the one who takes your words and brings them to life. I was trained to sing and dance and laugh, and that's what I want to do". - Aaliyah

Don’t stress out if things aren’t going according to plan. There is no plan. You cannot control what is going to happen. You have to give up on this idea of control, controlling anything is the exact opposite of creativity. The more that you are open and ready to accept whatever comes out of you, the better and more honest your art is going to be. If what you were expecting doesn’t happen so what!

If you are relaxed and open to the possibilities, you WILL find the inspiration. Remember where this is coming from, this is coming from the deepest parts of your sub-conscious and it may not all make sense right now, just let it all pour out.
