The Mind’s Miraculosity

The mind is a miraculous thing, but it needs to be in a serene state to write for an author. A writer needs an environment that gives him peace of mind. It doesn’t need to be a quiet place. For example, a good coffee and friendly people can do the job in a noisy coffee shop.

Why is the mind miraculous? Because it can reach deep down into the subconsciousness and lift up long forgotten or unnoticed memories. It can also reach out for inspiration – that’s when real miracles happen.

In any case, it’s not really the author who is writing the books. He just witnesses it.

To the mind that is still, the entire universe surrenders. – Lao Tze.
