THIS PAGE UNDER REVISION.....When you say you are "inspired", what do you mean? You probably mean that something outside of yourself gave you the motivation to do what it is you were inspired to do. It may be something someone said to you.....it may be an event, or an important occasion. Or it may be nothing that you can really put your finger on......
For artists inspiration may be credited to the Nine Muses, a "sisterhood of goddesses or spirits", according to our Wikipedia, "who embody the arts and inspire the creation process with their graces through remembered and improvised song and stage, writing, traditional music, and dance." The Nine "goddesses of artistic inspiration" are:
# (the "beautiful of speech", chief of the muses and muse of epic or heroic poetry)
# Clio (the "glorious one", muse of history)
# Erato (the "amorous one", muse of love or erotic poetry, lyrics, and marriage songs)
# Euterpe (the "well-pleasing", muse of music and lyric poetry)
# Melpomene (the "chanting one", muse of tragedy)
# Polyhymnia or Polymnia (the "[singer] of many hymns", muse of sacred song, oratory, lyric, singing and rhetoric)
# Terpsichore (the "[one who] delights in dance", muse of choral song and dance)
# Thalia (the "blossoming one", muse of comedy and bucolic poetry)
# Urania (the "celestial one", muse of astronomy)
OK, so maybe you aren't a fanatical follower of Greek mythology. But you realize that there seems to be an external source for this inspirational energy that is responsible for the creation of so many great works of Art.
And there is......but it isn't anything that can be photographed or sketched, or really even described. It's a force that's intuited, just as its origin is intuited. But unless you have been "unfolded" or opened up internally, you probably won't intuit much of anything.
There is positive
energy, and there is negative energy, with no in-between. There
is no neutral energy, only the absence of energy.
in sufficient concentrations may be called Good; negative energy
in sufficient concentrations may be called Evil. Concentrated energy
in human beings can be seen as spiritual energy, and is often referred
to as the Life Force, for certain types of energy in sufficient
concentrations manifest an intelligence or purpose.
The apex or
culmination (perhaps even origin) of concentrated spiritual Good
energy is God; the nadir or culmination of concentrated spiritual
Evil energy is Satan, the Devil. These types of energy are to be
found everywhere; it is therefore true that God is omniscient and
omnipotent, for He is everywhere. It is also true that the energies
of Evil are everywhere and can be equally powerful.
We humans, being
capable of manifesting either Good or Evil energy, are actually
quite capable of ensuring that the powers of Good triumph over Evil..but
the struggle between Good and Evil is a massive, long-lasting, all-encompassing
War of epic proportions nonetheless. For most of us are filled with
generous amounts of both types of energy, and are therefore constantly
at war with ourselves, the outcome being either "salvation"
How does the Human Race survive and co-exist happily with the God force? Each of us must realize that we have to actively develop our souls, our spiritual selves, through the manifestation and guidance of positive energy, as we each follow our pre-determined Destiny Paths in tune with the creative forces of the planet and of the higher planes. We must cooperate as seekers rather than compete as warring congregations; we must cooperate to construct a Synthesis of Personal Salvation -- based upon easily understood, practical procedures. If every person on this planet were to simultaneously manifest his/her personal, powerful positive energy force, unbelievable changes would result. A complete axis-shift of personal faith would take place. God is not simply a brainless force
drifting out there in the Cosmos.God is a powerful, unbelievably
powerful, intelligent force that must be reckoned with and "tuned" into. The mission
of every currently existing religious organization is to align its members with this "Good"
force, to ensure that the forces of negativity and decay and destruction do not triumph over Mankind
and, by extension, the planet as well.
We all have
a lot of work to do.
