I always learn so much from the posts written by +Harish Kumar ! 

#creativity   #inspiration  
Harish Kumar originally shared to Creativity:
 
Step 3: The Creative Breakthrough that involves Tension and Insight

“What separates Masters from others is often something surprisingly simple. Whenever we learn a skill, we frequently reach a point of frustration – what we are learning seems beyond our capabilities. Giving in to these feelings, we unconsciously quit on ourselves before we actually give up.”-Robert Greene, Mastery

Greene follows up with the final step, the breakthrough. This step involving frustration and tension sounds like the insight stage of creativity.

After grappling with the problem, mastery involves successfully navigating the frustration of no results. It is in this stage that many settle but mastery involves artful forward motion and also letting go at the right time.

Greene says that after 10 years of working through the problem of general relativity, Einstein decided to give up one day. The solution came to him when he woke up the next morning.

This letting go and allowing solutions to bubble up to the surface has happened many times.

“Creative Endeavors are by their nature uncertain.” ― Robert Greene, Mastery

All the tension released gives the mind to incubate and form associations that it missed in the past.

Greene’s ideas resonate with the stages of creativity where letting go after allowing an incubation stage is critical for insights to bubble up.

“The future belongs to those who learn more skills and combine them in creative ways.” ― Robert Greene, Mastery

Wow.
Thank you to author Matthew Simon Alexander for this amazing review of my poetry collection Pathways to Illumination. Being able to bring awareness to issues such as depression and domestic violence, in this case through poetry, is so important to me. My next book Versions of the Self will publish next month.
