How knowledge can creatively inspire you and allow you to find your muse.
"WE HAVE A HUNGER OF THE MIND WHICH ASKS FOR KNOWLEDGE OF ALL AROUND US, AND THE MORE WE GAIN, THE MORE IS OUR DESIRE; THE MORE WE SEE, THE MORE WE ARE CAPABLE OF SEEING."
Seeking knowledge and learning about new things is a great way to gain creative inspiration and to finally find that elusive muse. Allowing yourself to go off the deep end, and to learn everything you can about a particular subject or hobby and lead to new creative outlets and perhaps even a more fulfilling career.
An active mind is always asking questions, a creative mind is always dreaming up answers. To seek knowledge is to find your inspiration. Learning more about the things that interest you will make you thirsty to learn even more about them. Whether you aspire to become an expert or just have the need to dabble in a subject, obtaining knowledge about the world around will help drive your creativity.
Going off the deep end
One way to use knowledge as a creative force is to allow yourself to go off the deep end. Perhaps you have a hobby that you are really passionate about. Something that is that involves real work, yet you would pay to do it. Maybe its sports cars or perhaps you collect antique movie projectors. Whatever turns your crank, inspire to learn as much about as you can. Your family and friend might think you are obsessed, but the knowledge you gain from your “little hobby” could get your creative juices flowing. Perhaps it might even inspire you to becoming an mechanic or open up a antique movie projector store, allowing you to something for a living that you would do for free.
Another way to find creative inspiration through knowledge is to use the tools at your disposal to investigate the questions you have. Perhaps you run a across a television special on a subject you find interesting like the Seven Year’s War for instance. If you want to learn more about it, tons of information about it is at your fingertips. The Internet can help you gain access to many books and articles about this war, feeding you the knowledge you seek and answering the questions you have. Finding the answers you seek is easier than ever before; all you need to do is pull up the right smart phone app.
