The Power of Naps: Tools don’t Count, Intention does

I get my best inspirations at two moments of my life; in the WC and waking up from sleep. It is true what John Steinbeck says; “It is a common experience that a problem difficult at night is resolved in the morning after the committee of sleep has worked on it.” So much so that I take a nap whenever there is a difficult issue to solve, a spark of creativity is needed or I am stuck in my design work.

I don’t pretend to understand it or would want to. One thing is certain it works. Not everything that works need to be investigated and be known. It doesn’t have to make sense. It just is. We are blessed with such matters therefore we should just grace it by not trying to figure it out.

Therefore, I woke up this morning blessed to realize something; It is not the tool that counts, it is the intention behind the use that matters. This came when i woke up this morning and it dawned on me that I can use this blogging to complete my books! So the intention behind blogging now allows me to realize my dream. The tools have always been there but my intention has not materialized until now.

The other thing I also realized was that excitement was an important key to unlocking this intention. It was my excitement in having a new ‘toy’ that opened me up to receive such an idea.

In conclusion, I would like to commit today, the 19th of October 2011, at 8.18am, that I will write everyday and continue writing until I have enough materials to complete my book. Amin.
