In this period with my colleagues at work we use to send email greetings for the season. The girls from Human Relations Department come slightly dressed up by angels and santas sharing sweets and best wishes. Its really cute, it’s a moment of relax and sweet laughing for many of us in the office.This is what I am going to send as Best Wish for the New Year to my mates: an extract of a speech about “How to be inspired” by Nirmala Devi Srivastava. Due to the fact that the main essence of our job (script writing, editing, designing) is the creativity, the word “inspiration” is overused among us, so maybe the time has come to understand its meaning and try to work it out!
[ That which is coming to us, which is “new” – and is very different to the “thoughts” that we have. First these inspirations come to us, in “light and shade” and then are “moulded by us into language”. They come from inside…then we are spontaneous, inspirational. It is not like normal thing, which is very superficial, and which is the interaction between thoughts and action, action and reaction.Reduce your arguments to the minimum…and minimum…and don’t think… the inspiration will come to you from within, and when the inspiration will be coming, then you’ll find that it will be very different…it will be very beautiful.Go on telling your mind that “this is not…this is not…this is not” any thoughts that comes to your mind you go on telling “this is not… not this… not this…”then the inspiration starts coming. You see what I feel… people are not inspired… they have got fear, on one side…or else they go into ego trip. So to stay in the centre, what you have to do is to go on saying “not this thought” …the most intelligent person is the one who knows that our intellect is just an ego trip…this is the sign of pure intelligence…of pure understanding…that the heart is the rule […] but then what is the use of the brain…why not have only heart you see would be alright…but the brain is the one which “acts”. Heart is the inspiration…but the brain acts on it… ]
