1. What do you think Rumi means when he wrote, "Sell your cleverness and buy bewilderment." Write about it.
2 Draw, sketch, collage, paint or meditate on the word "curiosity" for at least 15 minutes. Repeat three days in a row and then use one of the earlier prompts to dive more deeply into the subject. Your subconscious will be so happy you are utilizing her!>> ----- <<
One helpful strategy is to read the quote, questions, prompt and list and not to "take them on" all at once, but to allow them to simmer in the back of your mind throughout the day. Sure, you may "write" one immediately, but don't call it "done" until you have allowed your powerful subconscious mind to bring up some unexpected responses for your conscious mind to create within.
Remember, though - there are no rights and wrongs, there is only showing up for your life and your creativity. Brava for being here!!
