If we don’t know who we are, don’t know what we’re capable of, our lives are guided by doubt and fear. We are inherently creative. We are creativity itself. The creative impulse itself is not about doubt, but about boldness, fearless potential waiting to be expressed in everything we do.
This book, The Conquest of Poverty, was the original articulation of the Law of Attraction. In the beginning, it was about coming to know that there is no second cause, no external force, no God outside yourself from whom to curry favor, appease, or fear retribution. To “Know ThySelf,” is to know God, the one and only Creator.
As we move into the Renaissance, it is imperative to recognize this innate power to create, to increase, to bloom, as we are intended. We are far more capable than we know. We are, you are, I AM infinite capacity. There is no limit to this capacity, except to believe otherwise.
Believe; receive; create like nothing is more important than being the creative impulse that you are.
This most of all: ask yourself in the most silent hour of your night: must I write? Dig into yourself for a deep answer. And if this answer rings out in assent, if you meet this solemn question with a strong, simple “I must,” then build your life in accordance with this necessity; your while life, even into its humblest and most indifferent hour, must become a sign and witness to this impulse. ~ Rilke
