The Artist's Way: (Link)
This program is so.....so...hard. After learning Spanish, Chinese, several programming languages, and teaching myself electrical engineering, I have never pushed myself as hard in something which should be so simple.
I am an artist, and always have been. My subjects were unfocused, but I am getting a clearer and clearer image everyday of where I am being guided. Guided by the universe, by fate, by god, whatever you want to call the invisible hand guiding our decisions. The geometric structure of the universe responds to your vibrations. Like an opera singer shattering a crystal glass, the universe reacts to your thoughts, and constructively increases the harmony, or disharmony that you emanate. Isaac Newton describes this in classical mechanics where each action has an equal and opposite reaction. Once you accept yourself, and move towards your greater harmony, the universe will pick up the rest.
All my life I have been told by society, family, authority, that art wasn’t a way to make a living or career. That is absolutely, one hundred percent bull-fooey. You can do this.
You can make art, and you should.
Even if you think it sucks.
