Gratitude breaks the spell of Writers Block
Jamál (Beauty), 8 Raḥmat (Mercy) 175 B.E. - Sunday, July 1, 2018
"Intone, O My servant, the verses of God that have been received by thee, as intoned by them who have drawn nigh unto Him, that the sweetness of thy melody may kindle thine own soul, and attract the hearts of all men. Whoso reciteth, in the privacy of his chamber, the verses revealed by God, the scattering angels of the Almighty shall scatter abroad the fragrance of the words uttered by his mouth, and shall cause the heart of every righteous man to throb. Though he may, at first, remain unaware of its effect, yet the virtue of the grace vouchsafed unto him must needs sooner or later exercise its influence upon his soul."
Where do you find inspiration? This is the eternal question ask by all artist, no matter what their medium. The most common answer is everywhere, which really doesn't help when confronted with writer's block. One good place to find inspiration is in the sacred books of the various religions. If one follows a specific religion, the person can start with the sacred scriptures of that religion. If the person doesn't follow any specific religion, that individual can begin with any of the Holy Books. I found a list of those scriptures today, when I read "The Book of Celestial Inspiration"2 by David Langnass, which is the third article in the series " Read Something Sacred Everyday"3.
