Years ago listening to Alan Watts, I heard him say, paraphrasing, “the best guru you can find is the one between your ears.” That really stuck to me. It resonated hardcore.
I was in art school at the time so I understood this immediately. In any endeavor that exercises volition and agency, INTUITIVE/CREATIVE INTELLIGENCE is the name of the game. Rote memorization and recitation is the game of calculators and machines.
Creative expression, on the other hand, moves with freshness of life!
One opens up their heart and allows the GENIUS to outpour onto the world. This activity—this movement of intelligence—is not mere BOOK KNOWLEDGE. You can’t seek this out from an EXTERNAL TEACHER/TEACHER. This flows out from within the SELF.
All that teachers/teachings can do for you is show you examples in which you can ASSESS and BENCHMARK your own subjective experience.
It’s like learning how to swim. You can read books on books on books on perfect technique, but unless you jump in the water and start splashing around, you aren’t going to get it.
This is the methodology I deploy when I share my experiences on social media. I can show you how I do it, but you have to start EXECUTING for yourself:
I can’t express YOUR true self, only YOU can. Don’t just observe me, observe YOURSELF.
...As such, I structure my meditation/flow coaching business similarly.
There are plenty of cool fancy techniques I can share (and will share), but FUNDAMENTALLY all I can do is facilitate the mental/emotional environment for you to SPONTANEOUSLY, HONESTLY express your true self.
As simple as it sounds, this is a monumental task.
One needs to break millennia worth of conditioning to get to something RAW—to the essence of one’s innate GENIUS.
It’s a tricky time navigating the confusion of illusion (ego), but with a little recalibration, the light of awareness cuts through.
You have the capacity for all of this. But if you still need help SHARPENING your process to LASER-FOCUS, send me a message or hit the link.
In the meantime, keep practicin’, friends. Liberation is inevitable to those who seek. 🔥⚔️👁 - 55 minutes ago
