14 Intriguing Quotes on Creativity from the Magic of Your Mind by Uell Andersen

Published

on

I love Uell Andersen’s book, ‘The Magic in Your Mind’ because of its enlightening pieces of advice. Last week, I shared inspiring quotes from the book and you loved them. Today, I’ll share with you Uell Andersen’s thoughts on creativity. All individuals performing creative works must read these enlightening quotes.

  1. ‘All books are written ‘Creativeness is not part of the surface self, of the ego, the conscious mind, the physical or sensual being. It emanates upward through the levels of consciousness from the Secret Self.’
  2. ‘No talent ever is exhibited by the conscious mind or ego, and the man whose life is ordered by them never can be creative.’
  3. ‘The creative man’s attitude has an aspect of abundance, as if he has some mystical tie with a horn of plenty, not of material things necessarily but of ideas and of possibilities that give a universal note to everything he does.’
  4. ‘The creative writer does not take up a pen with an idea of ‘making’ a certain thing, but only to see what will come through him and manifest itself on paper. The man who truly uses his talent is able to do so only because he lets it use him.’
  5. ‘A sense of being part of all things and a part of all life is a psychic condition that produces the most indescribable satisfaction. It’s the sense of creativity reported by artists.’
  6. ‘Religious revelation is exactly the same thing as creative activity. They are both metaphysical adventures. They involve the acquisition of a total instead of a partial view of the universe.’
  7. ‘When man allows his consciousness to be hemmed in by the ego he is unable to pull upon subconscious levels for the inspiration and drive necessary for creative work.’
  8.  ‘Unthinkable ingenuity and creative power lie within the universal mind, and to the degree that you learn to trust your life and being to it, that much of its power is yours.’
  9. ‘In deepest essence, each man is an artist and only comes to his complete fulfillment as an individual; when he gets his egoistic nature out of the way and allows the creative talent of the Divine to work through him.’
  10. ‘The truly creative attitude is a passive one insofar as it listens and does not command.’
  11. ‘Creative talent carries with it an element of deepest personal risk. Before the individual becomes a fit vehicle, he must figuratively hang himself from a cliff by his fingertips, suspend himself between life and death.’
  12. ‘The enlightened man is a talented man because he is a creative man, and his creativity is instilled in him by a sense of unity with all things.’
  13. ‘When we live out our lives focused in the ego and bound to egoistic desires and satisfaction, it becomes impossible for us to achieve a spiritual awakening or to fulfill ourselves as creative persons.’
  14. ‘Every creative individual must undergo a tempering process during which he is subjected to fire, after which his toughness is increased. Life is not such a gentle thing as to be approached with dainty fingers. Look about and you will see that nature chooses her blessed ones by subjecting them to the most severe tests.’

15 Life-Changing John Cena Quotes

John Cena is a professional wrestler and actor who once lived in his car and cleaned toilets for a living. He is a humble celebrity and many people love him. Recently, a South African rapper released a song named John Cena, and Cena avoided taking legal action against her because he didn’t want to take her efforts away.

Anyway, besides watching him fight and act, I love listening to his life-changing pieces of advice.

Here are his top pieces of advice about life and success.

  1. ‘I have often said a man’s character is not judged after he celebrates victory but by what he does when his back is against the wall. So no matter how great the setback, how severe the failure, you never give up. You pick yourself up, you brush yourself off, you push forward, you move on, you adapt, you overcome. That is what I believe.’
  2. ‘Surround yourself with wonderful people, be willing to learn, be willing to be humbled, and good stuff will happen.’
  3. ‘Don’t waste time and energy over the uncontrollable.’
  4. ‘To succeed I had to believe every night that I am the best.’
  5. ‘I’ve never been closed-minded to anyone’s opinion because you can learn from everybody.’
  6. ‘Take what you have and make it something great.’
  7. ‘No matter what you do, be yourself, and love what you do.’
  8. ‘Failure has made me who I am today. Failure gives you two choices, you stay down or you get up.’
  9. ‘Always try to do what you love. It’s always possible. It’s just a matter of sacrifice.’
  10. ‘I took risk, after risk, after risk.’
  11. ‘Check for your knob, and if you can find a knob it’s your door.’
  12. ‘Never give up. I have failed tens of thousands of times.’
  13. ‘If you don’t learn from your mistakes, they become regrets.’
  14. ‘The reason I have got to the finish line only a few times through all that failure is because through that failure I got back up.’
  15. ‘The future shows a lot of promise, but I think we should focus on the now.’
