Writer’s Block

“There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”

—Ernest Hemingway

Too often have I neglected to write because I was stuck in my logical mind. I’ve found myself entangled in the futility of seeking answers and explanations: “Why is everything this way? Why is it that way?” I find myself asking.

When instead I need only to dip my toes in the stream, get my feet wet and become completely engrossed in what God is doing. Life is a stream. It is flowing into a greater existence that I call “The heart of God.” We need only to stay in the flow. How simple is that really?

We need to remember to breath and return to the elementary principles of just existing in gratitude. This stream called life flows seamlessly on, whether or not I am flowing with, and I do not wish to miss a glimmer of its beauty.

Flowing Vs. Forcing

I am naturally a rule follower…a religious person. However, instead of fiddling around with rigid religious principles I’ve challenged myself to look up and remember that God is smiling at me through the clouds and embracing me in the wind. I’ve challenged myself to remember that Christ is expressing himself through all this beauty. He is not doctrine. He is freedom. I do not need to brainwash myself with principles. I need only to open.

And lo. The block is gone. My heart is open and I am free to return to my origin. I am completely emptied of everything and I yield myself entirely to my maker so that I may bleed his heart on paper. I was created to be inspired, not to have my voice suppressed by blockage.

This is how I write. And hopefully, this will be how I live.

To my readers,

I am wishing you ultimate freedom to create and be inspired.
