Solitude Is The Elixir of Creation

The awesome power of solitude is very often greatly underestimated. It is sometimes even completely ignored, forgotten or avoided at all costs by many people. The way our society is constructed today, solitude is often equated with boredom.

A quick look at many of the people who have made a lasting impression of us from hundreds or even thousands of years ago will reveal that pretty much all of them harnessed the power that solitude brings

Instead of grabbing all that we can get, we fill it in with mindless television, alcohol, drugs, and other non-constructive and downright destructive activities.

Silence gives us the opportunity to focus or even hyper focus on particular thoughts or ideas enabling the creative process to begin. It most often has to be sought out during pretty much every stage of creation from start to finish.

In ancient times this most precious resource was much easier to come by and resulted in the greatest wonders of the ancient world. Just think how much time it actually took to formulate the plan of how the pyramids and the sphinx (Har-Em-Ahket) where built. Think of all the knowledge and skills that went into accomplishing such a great feat.

The pyramids and the sphinx were constructed with such precision that they cannot even be duplicated in our time with all of the modern computer technology that we possess. Now how is that for creation!

Every “pyramid” or positive manifestation that we seek to create is best when built upon the foundation of solitude. It is very important for us to seek out quiet time on a regular basis if not daily.

Finding this solitude within the daily grind of career, family, city life, etc. can be challenging, but it can be done. Meditating for around 30 minutes is a good way to quiet and renew the mind. Often when we analyze how we use our time, eliminate non-constructive activities, and place importance on actually seeking out quiet time, it is surprising how much of it can be found.

I personally seek out solitude at all costs. To me the most important thing that we have in life is our ability to think and create. When we drink of the elixir of creation on a continual basis we can do mighty things. On the flip side if we neglect solitude or use it in non-constructive ways, we pay the price of manifesting chaos, and disorder in our lives and also by not accomplishing our positive goals. We all have busy schedules but setting aside some time to “still the mind” will yield huge benefits.
