Six Light-hearted Ways to Cultivate Creative Awareness
At boring office meetings, doodling is a subconscious act that helps to while away time. But in this creative meditation the focus is to stay put with the mind and keep a sharp awareness. Take a pen and pad and focus the mind at the tip of the pen. Allow the pen to wander and draw across the page. Think of Rumi’s experience of being a flute through which divine energy moves. Get the ego out of the way and allow divine energy to move through you as the images take shape. Don’t try to draw any thing. Experiment. Just let the strokes glide and see what comes into being.
