Wayne W. Inspiration is a state of being here now in this material world, while at the same time reconnecting to our spiritual origins.
So in order to achieve a reunion with our ultimate calling, we need to emulate the clear, uncomplicated world of Spirit. Living An Inspired Life , is now available in paperback.
Unclutter your life. Get rid of old files that take up space and are seldom, if ever, needed. Donate unused toys, tools, books, bicycles, and dishes to a charitable organization. Get rid of anything that keeps you mired in acquisitions that contribute to a cluttered life.
Clear your calendar of unwanted and unnecessary activities and obligations. Be sure to keep your free time free. I find that an evening spent reading or writing letters, watching a movie with a loved one, having dinner with my children, or even exercising alone is far more inspiring than getting dressed to attend a function often filled with small talk. Take time for meditation.
Give yourself at least 20 minutes a day to sit quietly and make conscious contact with God. Take time for yoga. I also encourage you to find a yoga center near you and begin a regular practice.
Return to the simplicity of nature. The fantasy to return to a less tumultuous life almost always involves living in the splendor of the mountains, the forests, or the tundra; on an island; near the ocean; or beside a lake. Your urge to simplify and feel inspired is fueled by the desire to be your natural self—that is, your nature self.
So give yourself permission to get away to trek or camp in the woods; swim in a river, lake, or ocean; sit by an open fire; ride horseback through trails; or ski down a mountain slope. Put distance between you and your critics. Choose to align yourself with people who are like-minded in their search for simplified inspiration.
Give those who find fault or who are confrontational a silent blessing and remove yourself from their energy as quickly as possible. You never need to defend yourself or your desires to anyone, as those inner feelings are Spirit speaking to you.
Take some time for your health. Consider that the number one health problem in America seems to be obesity. Recall that your body is a sacred temple where you reside for this lifetime, so make some time every single day for exercising it. Even if you can only manage a walk around the block, just do it. Similarly, keep the words portion control uppermost in your consciousness—your stomach is the size of your fist, not a wheelbarrow!
Respect your sacred temple and simplify your life by being an exerciser and a sensible eater. Play, play, play! I love to be around kids because they inspire me with their laughter and frivolity. The man who took a chance on me, booking me even though I was an unknown at the time, was a talent coordinator named Howard Papush.
It was my first big break, and I went on to appear on The Tonight Show 36 additional times. Howard also conducts workshops that teach people how to play and have fun in life. Notice how it makes everything so sweet, and so simple. Slow down. Slowly read these words. Slow down your speech, your inner thoughts, and the frantic pace of everything you do. Take more time to hear others. Notice your inclination to interrupt and get the conversation over with, and then choose to listen instead.
Stop to enjoy the stars on a clear night and the cloud formations on a crisp day. Sit down in a mall and just observe how everyone seems in a hurry to get nowhere. Do everything you can to eschew debt. Forget about the cash value. So do what your heart tells you will bring you joy, rather than determining whether it will be cost-effective. Make an attempt to free yourself from placing a price tag on everything you have and do—after all, in the world of Spirit, there are no price tags.
A dollar does not determine worth, even though you live in a world that attempts to convince you otherwise. Remember your spirit.
When life tends to get overly complex, too fast, too cluttered, too deadline oriented, or too type A for you, stop and remember your own spirit. Go there in your mind, and stop frequently to remember what you really want. I believe that a simple and unassuming manner of life is best for everyone, best both for the body and the mind.
