Let go, Let´s Write

A couple of days ago I wrote a post about how it is to be between success and defeat, as a writer. I got a very thoughtful comment written by Alison Gunn, one of my regular readers. She mentioned how important it is for the brain to get some rest, to be able to create. This made it very, very clear for me why I´m meditating.

As a buddhist my intention is to meditate every day. I have done it on and off for many years, but the first time I really felt a huge award take form as a change within was a couple of months ago. I had a writer´s block and gave it up! No more writing, only frustration! Instead, I was going to meditate. I was grumpy, turning my back towards the impossibility of creativity. To my surprise my mind got very creative during the meditation, and the story took a new turn, developed and evolved in such an interesting way that I must say I could not have done it by myself. I had to let it go before I could grab it! Therefor, meditation is an important part of my writing process. How do you rest?
