  1. What is it, really? How do you know when you've understood something? How to understand faster, deeper? It's long due man.
  2. How to differentiate high quality from low? What makes an object / person superior in quality than another?
  3. Haven't been around the forum for a while and I'm so happy to see the progress you are making <3
  4. Integration This word has been at the top of my list since the first day I did my values assessment (about 2 years back). In the previous months, I replaced the word Integration with Love, so my highest value became Wholeness / Love / Responsibility. This While Love has a very close meaning to Integration.. Love leads to the dissolution of all boundaries and its effects are immediate. Integration means breaking down a lower-level holon into parts, and those parts reassemble to form a higher-level holon. In this way, I seek my life to be a continuous retooling of the sense of 'me' - breaking down and reassembling in a higher-order - until it's infinite. Two days back, I found Daniel Ingram's (Author of the book The Core Teachings of the Buddha) website with the title Integrated Daniel. I intuit that there is more to the word Integration that I can't quite crack. ... From a previous post: What is the difference between Integration and Integrity? Is this what Jung referred to as Individuation? Is Integration going to be a lifelong journey of deaths and revival? Is it worth the pursuit? How do I even pursue it? ... When All is Integrated, all dualities collapse into the Here-now. No past, no future. Just an intense NOW.
  5. On point. That's something I am coming to realise as well. The more I understand personality, the more I get free from it. Thanks for the kind advice. What's your MBTI / Enneagram? (You sound like an evolved Intuitive Feeler)
  6. Update: While Personality Psychology remains a crucial tool in my toolkit as a coach, I have started seriously studying Creativity as a subject onto itself, and the works and lives of artists. I have also started working specifically with Artists and Creatives. I find that Artists have the psychological and spiritual depth that I can and want to explore. I am attracted to artists who are finding effective ways to point towards the Divine. If the purpose of a piece of art is to communicate the state of mind/consciousness of the artist to the attentive viewer, the best artists are those who have both the spiritual insight and the technical skills to take the viewer on a journey. For the sake of understanding, one way of broadly categorizing different art and artists is (by no means exhaustive): Medium Visual (Eyes) 2D Painting - digital / canvas Photography 3D Sculpture Exhibition Design Architecture VR ... Auditory (Ears) Music Sound effects Singing ... Words Speaking Ex: Leo Writing Writing lyrics Movement Dance ... Level of Consciousness / Spiral Dynamics / Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs / Chakra "What chakra is this work an expression of?" What needs does this piece of art symbolize? Most creatives work across multiple mediums and evolve up Level of Consciousness as their work progresses. Currently on my reading list are: The Mission of Art (Alex Grey) The Artist's Way (Julia Cameron) Daily Rituals: How Artists Work (Mason Currey) Lateral Thinking (Edward De Bono) Creative Schools (Sir Ken Robinson) Big Magic (Elizabeth Gilbert) I am also digging into everything by these two fascinating people who are Creativity Coaches themselves: Mark McGuinness (Founder of Lateral Action) <-- Probably inspired by Edward De Bono's "Lateral Thinking" Books: 21 Insights for the 21st Century Creative Productivity for Creative People Motivation for Creative People Resilience: Facing Down Rejection and Criticism on the Road to Success Podcast: https://lateralaction.com/21stcenturycreative/ Eric Maisel (Founder of Creativity Coaching Association) Selected Books: The Power of Daily Practice: How Creative and Performing Artists (and Everyone Else) Can Finally Meet Their Goals The Creativity Workbook for Coaches and Creatives: 50+ Inspiring Exercises from Creativity Coaches Worldwide Unleashing the Artist Within: Breaking through Blocks and Restoring Creative Purpose Inside Creativity Coaching: 40 Inspiring Case Studies from Around the World The Magic of Sleep Thinking: How to Solve Problems, Reduce Stress, and Increase Creativity While You Sleep 60 Innovative Cognitive Strategies for the Bright, the Sensitive, and the Creative: New Investigations into the Home of the Mind Become a Creativity Coach Now! Secrets of a Creativity Coach Mastering Creative Anxiety Affirmations for Artists It's interesting that both of them started as Psychotherapists. These two are the proof of concept for me, that people are seeking this kind of advice. I am currently pursuing a Master's degree in Fashion and am considering a Ph.D. in Creativity. I don't even know if that's a thing, but yeah. I want to become a catalyst of creativity and self-expression for this culture and generation. My understanding is becoming more nuanced as I learn more about this, and I reserve the right to intelligently correct my course as I go along - without feeling like a hypocrite or a fool.
