The Cure For Constipated Creativity
Or, how to unplug your idea pump!
What are you holding back for? There's no point
clutching the sides. If you are going to fall, FALL! If you are going to fail, FAIL! Fail big! Get lots of
feedback. Try again!
When your mind feels like it is all bunged-up, you've got to set some dynamite to
clear the log jam. You gotta blast through that creative constipation.
How do I do that, Wily?
I'm so glad you
asked. Here, swallow my loquacious laxative for your
brain and unclench those buttocks of brilliance!
How to loose your mind
1. Take a brain
Purge the past. Expel the known. From your
subjective point of view, you want to imagine you've got your hands full of everything you know and have
been taught -- consciously and unconsciously. Now throw it in all directions in one sharp movement of "get
off me!" outrage. Go on, get clear and clean!
2. Lose the attitude
Get off that high horse and eat shit. Get down and dirty. Get your hands dirty.
Stop hanging onto your education. Start learning something new. Look to nature. Copy nature. Be humble and
lowly. Start anew, start afresh. Be willing to be a beginner again. Take up the baby mind -- pristine with no
preconceptions. Look again as though for the first time. Put yourself last. Be like water and flow low and into
the hidden spaces.
Sometimes you have to look at life from the
ass end. It gives you a whole new perspective! Turn yourself inside out, upside down, back to front.
Explore sizes -- make things bigger, make things smaller. Delve into your most basic assumptions about
life and about being human. Mess it all up. Ask challenging and 'insane' questions. Take apart your
beliefs. Re-assemble them. Repeat several times -- like you are playing with lego.
Are you anal-retentive about who you are?
Do you carry around your allergies and your tricky knee, your dietary needs, your 'I always have a smoke
on Saturday nights', your preferences and peculiarities, and show them off in a loud voice? Kill all that.
Stop limiting yourself. Self-destruct -- yeah, go on destroy that sense of self, it's only a blip in time
anyway. Try something else. You're an animal. You're a spirit. You're a bucket of blood and guts. You're a
universe. You're an idea. You're everybody that you can see. You're nobody. You're a ghost. You're a super
hero. You're infinite. You're creative... Build flexibility into your identity and you can be anything you
want... and you can still be YOU!
5. Get rough-age!
Creativity is natural. It should be flowing out of you like water gushing down a
mountain stream. If your creativiity is blocked and constipated, it's because you are being a total pansy!
You've got to get rough with yourself. Go on, give yourself a good slap round the chops. Stop indulging in the
stupid fantasy of being blocked. It's so self-indulgent. It's lazy and you just need a good self-administered
ass-kicking. Creativity comes on demand. Just start working and it will come. Expect it, get
Get over your creativity constipation by dumping
the known, starting afresh, taking new perspectives, expanding your identity, and mental toughness. Have
fun with your life. And express yourself!
