8 POWERFUL BASIC TRUTHS TO LEARN HOW TO TURN ON INSPIRATION
HIERONYMUS QUIMP

Observationist/Philosopher


The Eternal Questions!

What is inspiration?

Where does inspiration come from, and how can i receive it?

 

Ask any artist in history about inspiration and you`ll get a long shuddering sigh!

But this sigh will be twofold, the sigh of 'Oh No, all those months of 'nothing', 

thinking i would never ever create anything of worth again, the emptiness, the upset, the self doubt!'

And the sigh of 'Ah Yes, i remember the beautiful inspiration that flooded me, before and as i painted that

famous picture or wrote that classic melody, the exultation, the oneness with life, that simplicity

with which i created with such wonderful ease!!!'

 

SO WHAT IS INSPIRATION?

It seems to come when it comes, it cannot be forced, threatened or purchased!

This is something every artist would love to know!

 

LETS LOOK CLOSER AT THIS!

 Is it Physical, Mental or Spiritual in nature? Would be the first question!

 

PHYSICAL?

What we are creating about may be physical, like Nature or Man and Woman or

anything else in this physical universe, but is INSPIRATION itself physical?

Probably not, as you can`t buy it or make it, as you might a physical object!

Although it`s manifestation is always physical via sound, sight or touch!

 

MENTAL?

What do we mean by mental?

Is it creatable by 'thinking it' into existance, or analysing it into being there? 

Ask any artist how he got on by thinking inspiration into his life, and you`ll probably get the answer that the inspiration was good but not great! He`ll tell you that the 'really great inspiration' came when he was NOT thinking, it just APPEARED!

 

SPIRITUAL?

Well it seems that by a process of elimination, we might have the answer!

 

So how do we use this knowledge to 'LEARN HOW TO TURN ON INSPIRATION', the title of this article?

 

The following Observations have been written using the above as a starting point!

They have been written concerning the subject of Poetry, BUT they will apply to ANY ARTFORM!

As you read them, see how the message applies to YOUR artform!


These are ‘Observations of 'basic truths' within a Poetic form’ (they rhyme)

This is a new genre, the author is creating. 

 

Note

Read this Blog and these observations each day, and put into action what you read!

And one day something wonderful will have changed concerning inspiration!

They are truths that will create change if you desire them to!

I hope that 'you and inspiration' meet often and have a wonderful journey of creativity together, that you can then share with others!

 

I truly hope you find something of lasting value, within these observations!

Inspiration   


Inspiration's a flow that you must 'creatively direct', moulding it gradually into something worthy
to show!

The first moments may come instantaneously. but 'go to work' then one must always be willing for as long as it takes, allowing it fully, lovingly to take form!

This is how 'mere inspiration' into Worthy Art is born!

   TO REST

                          HIERONYMUS Quimp

A 'Poem`s Power' is in its message,

how a Poet gets that across is

the daily test!


How many words to use!

in which order!


knowing

when

message

finally arrived at!


When to lay pen to rest!


RECEIVE

RECEIVE

                                     HIERONYMUS QUIMP


Don`t write them

for personal fame!


Write them to uplift

another or others,

or merely for fun!


Being then in tune with

Universal aims or

playfulness!


You`ll suddenly

receive a good one!


          MEASLY

                                       Hieronymus Quimp


WHEN you REACH THE POINT

where you know

your duty is 'to serve!'

ART then COMES EASILY!

                  

Any other reason,
the ''pickings' are MEASLY!



WRITER`S BLOCK             

There`s nothing i know, that`s worse than ‘Writer’s Block!’

For as the words get really heavy, crossed out pages many made, are bin aimed, and angrily or sadly thrown away!

The more you force it the worse it gets! Like stupidly running faster and faster through a thick fog! You`ll always, run into a tree at some point or down a ditch! ‘

Writer’s Block’ is an Absolute Bitch!


Creativity, can ONLY flow, when the mind is relatively free!

So go do a Yoga class!

chill out!

have Sex!

or do something that really makes you happy!

EXIST   

                                                                                                          BY HIERONYMUS QUIMP


I just had a visit from a Great Idea!

then it went poof! suddenly it was gone!


I didn`t get upset or make an angry fist,

for i knew it would return,

should it Desire to exist !


RIDE


Don`t get So Much Into the

technical side!


That you Forget!


Poetry`s a Spirit’s Imagination Ride!                                                    


  HIERONYMUS QUIMP



 



SAD


Poets keep going until

its good!


For Never did a poem

Ever want to be bad!


Work hard not to leave it


Forlorn!


Unloved!


Unadmired!



Tearfully

Irreversibly sad!
