When ever I have fallen into the trap feeling that my work is not enough or i should try hard to be something so much MORE that I am right now, to success, I tap into to these gorgeous words by Mooji and remind myself of the truth behind them.
“THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS NOT TO BE FANCIFUL. THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS TO BE AUTHENTIC.”
Doesn’t these words just set you free? Trying too much to be something more, to be different, get noticed as someone different only takes your energy away. It will distract you from creating the most beautiful work you can create just by being your authentic self!
There’s 7,7 billion people in the world. We all are special and unique with our own mix of recycled characteristics, without doing anything. We are that effortlessly. And that is what you will bring into your work when you stop trying too much to push your art to be something.
We are often feeling blocked with our creativity because we think we are not enough as we are. When we try too much to be something, we lost the unique work. Sometimes we try to be something we think looks beautiful or other people like more. Even if you happen to success to make that kind of art, it will never fulfill your soul and isn’t that what we artist want most?
You already are you. Effortlessly. Just do what you love to do or what comes natural from you. Don’t make it too complicated. Then do it by worrying as less as you can, be as genuine as you can, enjoy as much as you can. Life is a play and you should just enjoy it too!
Let all the layers of trying to be something fall away. Drop that noncence. Just be real and qenuine. Create what you create and get better in your own time. Your soul will come up with great ideas when you trust it. Your work will evolve as you evolve as human being. You are enough. What you do is enough. Your authenticity is the most beautiful thing you can put into your work.
