How thinking Big can help you find inspiration
"BIG THINKING PRECEDES GREAT ACHIEVEMENT."
Expanding your mind and allowing yourself to think about the big picture can help you let out the creative muse that is trapped within. Seeing that forest past the trees and pondering upon the intricate connectedness of things will help you become a better writer.
Seeing the forest
Being able to see beyond those trees and recognize the forest they grow in is a great way to get unstuck from the creative rut that you currently find yourself in. If you are failing to find your muse from examining the intimate details of things that are close at hand, why not let your mind expand and ponder upon the much bigger picture.
In the terms of the universe, our big vast world is just a little blue speck of dust circling a medium sized sun that resides in a regular sized galaxy which is one of a billion galaxy clusters. According to Carl Sagan, if you were to shrink the life of the universe into one year, all of human existence would occur in just a few scant seconds in the late hours of New Years Eve. In the great scheme of things we are nothing, yet by the virtue of our limitless imaginations, we can somehow grasp this and draw upon it for creative inspiration.
The next time you find yourself at the end of your creative rope, why not try to ponder upon the bigger picture. Imagine how the entire world is interconnected like a spider’s web and how a sneeze in the city can end up killing off all the butterflies in the jungle. Think globally, and all of the problems that we still need to solve, and how one little comet can turn everything that we have achieved into forgotten dust.
