“Do you think that when Rembrandt was painting, he stood there with a brush in his hand thinking, “Okay, I wonder what my next brushstroke is going to be. If I put it there then it may clash with that. I’m not quite sure, but maybe two more centimeters to the right, let’s measure it. It might look better over….” Creativity arise out of the state of thoughtless presence in which you are much more awake than when you are engrossed in thinking.” ~ Eckhart Tolle

Oh, yes. As a recovering over thinker, I find this space of reverently thoughtless brush strokes to be magical….peaceful….and utterly fulfilling. There is truly no way to “make” it happen. Simply sit back..and allow.
Yes, the wonder of stillness. ❤
