Inspiration can manifest in different forms. Some people get inspired through positive affirmations, exciting conversations, physical activity, while others get inspired through love, children, or occupation.
Inspiration comes through those moments when we see true, pure virtue. It is an emotional experience when we encounter exceptional ability or competence in some activity that motivates us to be a better version of ourselves.
What most often inspires us
Love conquers all as it is the most dominant value in our spiritual world – inspiring, transforming, life-changing. Love brings a sense of calm and the best motivation to face everyday challenges. It helps us to cope more easily with everything around us.
People who live ordinary lives like all of us but once faced with extreme circumstances react in a way that could impact the lives of many. Such people help make dreams come true, create extraordinary things, achieve unbelievable victories. They are true heroes possessing superpowers and ultimate game-changers.
Nature is a source of creative inspiration for poets, writers, painters, sculptors, and composers. But also for entrepreneurs who seek to develop new technologies to preserve it. And for all of us who chill and get inspiration while admiring her beauty.
Art. The very purpose of art is to fascinate and inspire. We can not only admire it but also can visit a ceramics, painting, or poetry workshop and indulge in it. We don’t need Leonardo Da Vinci slumbering inside us to pick up a brush and treat our soul with the fulfilling experience of creativity.
Suffering. Sad but true – sometimes the most intense emotional instability and experience could become the stimulus and the inspiration for splendid masterpieces. Many artists create their most magnificent and ingenious works inspired by nightmare, sadness, inner pain, even severe depression.
Discoveries are one of the most exceptional catalysts for humanity’s progress. Starting with fire – the first notable discovery of a million years ago, then going through the cultivation of plants and the domestication of animals, the first script of the Sumerians six thousand years ago; and on to photography and cinema, radio and television, the digital computer, atomic energy, space technology, the DNA of the human genome, global navigation systems. All of them changed the course of human history.
Teachers who bring us to light, inspire and know how to guide people so different from each other. Everyone has one or more teachers or spiritual guides who have changed their lives forever. Some people even choose their path of life inspired by an outsatnding teacher or tutor.
Books that help us look at life from different angles, discover the most common pitfalls on the road to happiness and build our action plan in life. They are our most interesting and loyal besties.
Faith is the most compelling inspiration we find within ourselves. When we are full of faith, we can influence things, touch heaven and earth, the gods and the souls of the ancestors, cross the universe. Neither abyss, nor vortex, nor flame – nothing could stop us.
Life. Being happy in a human way is beautiful, challenging, possible, achievable, and yet, transient. The physical life is incredible and full of possibilities. However, it is incomplete and painful when it is devoid of the power of the spirit and the knowledge of the soul.
The power of our inspiration for life comes from our spirit and dreams. It doesn’t come from the physical planes. Only manifests in them. Inspiration coming from the physical world is fine. However, to feel the inspiration within is extraordinary. The first ends with human life, while the second one remains within us. It is us!
