LIVE IN THE TRUTH AS THE CREATOR RATHER THAN THE VICTIM OF YOUR LIFE: August 31, 2020

If all your attention (and so all your energy) is tied up in your outer world of people, objects, things, places, and time, there is no energy left in your inner world of thoughts and feelings.

The stronger the emotion you are addicted to, the more you will place your attention on that person, object, place, or circumstance in your outer world—giving away most of your creative energy and causing you to feel and think equal to everything you know. It becomes difficult to think or feel in any new ways when you are addicted to your outer world. And it’s possible that you can become addicted to all the people and things in your life that are causing all your problems in the first place. That’s how you give your power away and mismanage your energy.

That’s why we use meditation as the model to change our internal state.

Once you overcome your emotional body and you take your attention off everything known to you in your outer world, you call your energy back to you, breaking the bonds with your past-present reality (which has been staying the same).

You’re going to have to make the transition from being somebody to being no body—which means you have to take your attention off your body, your pain, and your hunger. You’re going to have to go from being someone to being no one (taking your attention off your identity as a partner, a parent, and an employee). You’ll have to go from keeping your attention on some thing to placing your attention on no thing (forgetting all about your cell phone, your e-mails, and getting a cup of coffee) and from being somewhere to being no where (getting beyond any thoughts about the chair you’re meditating in or where you’ll be going later today) and from being in linear time to being in no time (with no distracting memories or thoughts about the future).

“I’m an artist. Artists don’t need permission to work. Regardless of whether I’m acting or not, I write. I write when I’m tired in fact, because I believe your most pure thoughts surface.”

“I would love to have an ocean of love right now. That said, the number-one rule of acting is, ‘Do not seek approval from the audience.’ People don’t realize that. You can’t do stuff to get applause. You have to live in the truth.”
