The Adventure of the Conscious Creative (part 6)

Who can help us regain our power? I have come to understand from my work as an artist that we should look to ourselves for the answers. I know of nothing that has the same potential for self-discovery and empowerment as the process of creating art.

Think about what it would feel like to release the wondrous power that resides within you. What if we are not Aladdin making wishes by rubbing a lamp, but instead, we are the Genie granting those wishes to ourselves? Does this idea frighten or excite you?
