Dear instructors - recently I am finding more and more creative energy.
I do things I have never done before - have started to paint, sing in a choir, make own beauty products (and share them with friends and family), write short stories, etc. People like all of these based on their responses and feedback. They especially encourage me to write more, and I do enjoy writing.

The only thing I cannot yet understand is when I write I totally lose myself - it can take hours but I don't feel it. I am afraid I might be losing the present moment? What would you recommend on how to combine both? Some part of you always seem to go to an imaginary place from where you get images, stories, words. How can you create yet totally being present?

Since I also write, being creative is a matter of opening the heart and intuition to what the Innermost wants to dictate. This skill comes about gradually through transmutation, concentration, and meditation.
Poetry is a deal of joy and pain and wonder, with a dash of the dictionary. - Khalil Gibran
To write, one must fulfill the three stages of initiation: imagination (perception), inspiration (recognition of the guidance of God, may He be praised and exalted), followed by intuition (comprehension).

Afterward comes editing, that's the mind! But first, we need to deepen our connection to our genuine inspiration, the True Genius within as mentioned by William Blake.

For thirty years I sought God. But when I looked carefully I found that in reality God was the seeker and I the sought. -Bayazid al-Bastami
