What can you create today?

Updated on June 10, 2010
Inside the Pantheon, Rome Italy. The light shifts its  focus on sculptures as the day passes creating in each hour a new vision to focus our eyes upon.
Inside the Pantheon, Rome Italy. The light shifts its focus on sculptures as the day passes creating in each hour a new vision to focus our eyes upon.

Is today another day to waste on routine? Is today another day to wait for something to happen? Is today another day to be alone?

Do you really want that coffee? Do you really want to eat in that same old place? Do your really want to see the same people today?

Stop moving and think about it. Even just by thinking about what you really want today, what really interests you today, is an act of creation. You are creating new possibilities and inviting them into your consciousness.

While you are reading this, try to listen to the sounds of the room, what is that sound that stands out. Is it coming from the laundry room? Is it coming from the window? What is that sound?

Attending to little details in your environment provides new avenues of learning. By suspending the automatic action and being alert to things you used to ignore, the higher brain wakes up and your mind begins to explore new directions.

The beginning of creativity does not start when you learn to do something. That is its end product. Creativity begins with an act of choice. It begins with the decision to question what you do, who you are and what interests you.

What will you create today?

      This reminds me of one of my podcasts/youtube videos.

      Everyday is a new day, and there's no time like the pocket of space-time called today for action. :)

      Hi Deborah,

      I thank you for reading this today and commenting because particularly today I need reminding! That was actually a hub I wrote for myself. Namaste as well!

      What a great hub. It's true, when we turn on our brain, we can manifest anything. Thanks for the reminder that it is a daily choice, to create our world.

      Namaste.

      Thank you again raising me, you are so generous. I am also liking the name and did think that yep, that's what I'm doing to. Glad our truths met in this hub. :)
