the sublime heights of creativity
is where there is no gravity.

there you are like a satellite floating
in a geo stationary orbit,
not of this world and yet of it,
acted upon by no outside force,
moving with the world in a state of perfect rest
in relation to everything over land, sea and air.

it is like when you step out of your palace
in the dead of the night
and you wander into the wide open spaces,
come to a river,
take a dip and sit under a tree,
with your legs crossed, eyes closed and spine straight,
turning weightless into a flame,
burning smokeless.

I have been these couple of years watching it closely, when it happens and when it is nowhere to be seen. It doesn't happen for me when I am full of myself.
Happy you liked it, Arun, Sorcy, Charu.

It is like seeing the world for the first time. When the pieces fall into place. When you feel connected. You've struck a rich vein. Let's have more.

It is exciting to be drawn into the process, feel the vulnerability of it all. It is the state when you are totally alive. And it is tightrope walking to position yourself there, isn't it?
