“If you hear a voice within you say ‘you cannot paint,’ then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced.” ― Vincent Van Gogh
How often have you had the experience of struggling to remember a person’s name, only to have the name effortlessly revealed to you when you were engaged in something entirely different? The same thing happens when we wrestle with our minds for ideas or solutions. Once we let the challenge go and engage in something that frees our minds, the lightning bolt strikes!
This is the value of play. Play opens the pathways for creativity to flow freely. When we are engaged in play, we connect with the heart, rather than leading with the mind. As we access the essence of pure potentiality, transformative ideas and solutions come to us spontaneously, and we are boundlessly creative. ~ Oprah & Deepak Chopra Desire and Destiny
