You are a genius.
Did you know that the word “genius” means more than being Albert Einstein, more than personal intellect or individual achievement?
Did you know that genius, to the Greeks (who invented the word), meant something more?
A genius was a spirit that inhabited an artist — that possessed her to create something remarkable, something extraordinary, something the world had never seen.
I believe we can all be geniuses — if we avail ourselves to the Muse, if we will submit to the Spirit that wants to guide us into all truth and creativity.
I know that may sound mystical or New Agey, but it doesn’t have to be; it can be meant in a very practical way — you don’t have to do all the work.
Creativity is more than hard work and putting your nose to the grindstone; sometimes, creativity looks like giving up and letting the genius take over.
