Nureyev&Fonteyn – Romeo&Juliet

September 29th, 2010

What words could never tell … maybe, not even Shakespeare’s :)

Movement amazes me. I find it magical how we all move in this collision of space, gravity and the human body. It amazes me how a perfect movement can be produced by driving our bodies to meet space and gravity in a specific way. There are no barriers to human experience.  And when we think there is… we are our own barriers. Movement like this above was not known until Nureyev showed us that it was possible for human body to float in space like a swan and he showed us how to do it.  The proxy is defined!

Is that for you?

I’m now interviewing excellent, creative, knowledgable visual artists/communicators–video production and editing, graphic design, creative writers and copywriters. Someone who is part geek and loves the technology and fast moving trends, stays on top of that and can blend their creativity with the dynamic, fast-moving technological changes. Someone who wants to contribute at a higher level and live with more meaning and purpose. If you know of such a person please introduce them to me.

Chris Anderson: How web video powers global innovation

September 23rd, 2010

TED’s Chris Anderson says the rise of web video is driving a worldwide phenomenon he calls Crowd Accelerated Innovation — a self-fueling cycle of learning that could be as significant as the invention of print. But to tap into its power, organizations will need to embrace radical openness. And for TED, it means the dawn of a whole new chapter ..

‘Fake it until you make it’

September 21st, 2010

Correct. Believe in the person you want to become –a person though your inner Essence. You don’t need to fake anything or anybody so to become who you truly are. You simpoly start remembering who you are by walking through the mud. You either get enlightened overnight – which is quite rare – or you walk back ‘home’ to You.

First you start digging then walk across layers of self-deception and self-defence to the core of you, the Essence of you, and then if you choose, you can start walking upwards towards the Light (Source) of all of us.

‘Fake it until you make it’ is an amazing technique for adopting a new role, a new way of thinking. ‘Walk like an Egyptian’ – move the way, hold your posture the way you want to be seen; start thinking like an artist, a musician, a self-made enterprenour or whatever and eventually you become of it.

Obviously, it is also work to do. And it is because there are parts of you who do not believe in the existence of the ‘person’ who you want to become. So you’d better watch out.

Find role models and start acting the way they do so to master that skill. Day by day, you will notice as you are consciously making efforts in mastering that skill, just like with a martial art, this skill starts sinking in and becoming part of your ‘structure’. And one day, without you noticing it you act and feel the skill you wanted.

Talent is not enough. It takes conscious work, persistence and focus to become who you can be.

Who is your role model?

Inspired by self-discovery and perseverance – Creative-Coaching 2

September 19th, 2010

Where a creative-coach comes in?

Well, you can start digging alone. It is only fair to say. Nevertheless, the process gets easier by having somebody on the side. Let me draw you an example. Airplanes as they fly from point A to point B they are constantly in touch with a guiding system called control tower. The job of the control tower is to give feedback to the pilots if they are on or off course towards point B. Without this feedback system, the airplane would never arrive to its destination.

You may consider how you want to go through finding your way back to your own depth where all possibilities, talent and unexpressed-creations lie. Do you prefer struggling your ways through or would you get support and enjoy the ride?

The coach walking with you, is your feedback system towards yourself and your creations whatever they may be – from a new piece of art-work to a new life – someone you can trust and rely on in moments of doubt, fear or helplessness. He/she is also someone whom you can celebrate your wins and successes with.

Your coach is the person who appreciates what you are going through, and supports you all the way during your process of becoming.

Inspired by self-discovery and perseverance 1

September 19th, 2010

I am so amazed and grateful to see the many young talents of the world these days. Recently I have discovered Lily Allen. I found just fascinating the way she expresses her-self. I recently saw StreetDance3D, where I saw this amazingly talented young street dancer, named George Sampson. Soon I realized that I was a few years late discovering him, he was the Britain’s got talent show’s contestant in 2007 and the winner in 2008. His perseverance touched me deeply. They both became my inspirations.

Lily who strived to be herself and went around finding her Essence, her depth, her creative spirit, and when found it, she started to spread the news via her lyrics and music. What could be more inspiring!

The young man touched me deeply through his courage, determination and perseverance.

If you look at the list of ‘what makes a creative personality’ you will find both traits from the above on the list; finding who you are and what you’re made of; and persevering until you break though to the world and enduring failure.

It is simply not enough to be talented or creative, of feeling so. Partly because if you don’t persevere in displaying what you’ve got nobody will ever know how talented or creative you are. In persevering you discover so much of yourself as well as realize how much more you have that needs developing, attention and care. And on the other hand, without some soul-searching and having at least a glimpse of who you truly are beyond layers of deception and defence, you don’t stand much chance of becoming the artist or creative-mind you may intend to be.

Life is not fair. You can spend most of your life moaning about your un-luck or lack of support in becoming the best-of-you – nobody cares really. It is your job and responsibility to find the way out of the deadlock and strive to be and express.

Start with yourself. Start discovering the depth of all your desires, the very spot where you hurt (or been wounded) the most, that is where your core potential lies. It is not by accident that most artists suffer deeply while (and before) creating. They kept on going back to that wounded place and fetched their creations into existence.

Nevertheless it is not necessary to hurt all the time so to be successful. There is one more step, beyond the pain and wound, one can take so to rise above and still be in touch with his/her talent and creativity. That giant step takes one to her/his core – Essence if you like – the point of Unity with the Vast, the One.

Being in touch with that part of us allows us the freedom to create with confidence and being in touch with our full creativity. And when, and only when, we are in touch with this part of us as well as experiencing being part of the One, we are free of judgement, criticism or expectations, because here we create out of sheer pleasure.

To get there one needs to dig deep, and deeper, walk through the mud, the madness, cry the unshed tears of he/his past until Light starts appearing beyond the horizon.

And that’s when she knows she has arrived back to her-true-self, in touch with all that she is, beyond skin, flesh, bone, mind and psyche – Home.

So, start diggin’!

Lily Allen – The Fear

September 19th, 2010

The Fear

I want to be rich and I want lots of money
I don’t care about clever I don’t care about funny
I want loads of clothes and fuckloads of diamonds
I heard people die while they are trying to find them

And I’ll take my clothes off and it will be shameless
Cause everyone knows that’s how you get famous
I’ll look at The Sun and I’ll look in The Mirror
I’m on the right track yeah I’m onto a winner

I don’t know what’s right and what’s real anymore
And I don’t know how I’m meant to feel anymore
When do you think it will all become clear
Cause I’m being taken over by the fear

Life’s about film stars and less about mothers
It’s all about fast cars and cussing each other
But it doesn’t matter cause I’m packing plastic
And that’s what makes my life so fucking fantastic

And I am a weapon of massive consumption
And it’s not my fault it’s how I’m programmed to function
I’ll look at The Sun and I’ll look in The Mirror
I’m on the right track yeah we’re onto a winner

I don’t know what’s right and what’s real anymore
And I don’t know how I’m meant to feel anymore
When do you think it will all become clear
Cause I’m being taken over by the fear

Forget about guns and forget ammunition
Cause I’m killing them all on my own little mission
Now I’m not a saint but I’m not a sinner
Now everything’s cool as long as I’m getting thinner

I don’t know what’s right and what’s real anymore
And I don’t know how I’m meant to feel anymore
When do you think it will all become clear
Cause I’m being taken over by the fear

Sombody very young and very interesting! Lily Allen

September 19th, 2010

“Lily Allen has been called all these things, and much, much more – sometimes with justification, often without. She’s posh, she’s common, she’s sexy, she’s demure, she’s reticent, she’s outspoken, she’s sensitive, she’s shameless, she’s loved-up, she’s distraught, often all in the same evening. Then she goes to bed, gets up and has breakfast. Then she posts her breakfast on the Internet. Then other people analyse her breakfast. And wonder why she posted it on the Internet.”

“She first commandeered the public stage in July 2006, a fully formed phenomenon with a song that would help define that summer, the hugely infectious “Smile”, her first CD single and her first UK number one. “Smile” served as an excellent primer for the Allen oeuvre, a breezy, lilting, ska-inflected slice of perfect pop distinguished by sugar-sweet vocals and unflinchingly autobiographical lyrics. It was a song of female empowerment sung by a smart-mouthed, wide-eyed, pretty post-teen in a pink prom dress and box-fresh Nike trainers, fluoro make-up and huge hoop earrings.”

“I find it hard to write songs about nothing,” says Allen. “I try to write things that are both relevant to my life – which is totally weird and surreal – and also universal.”
