The Voyage of the Creative Spirit
63 motivational and inspirational short essays on living a consciously creative life.
This book is for those intrepid explorers of human expression: artists. It doesn’t matter what field you choose—whether in the arts or sciences—if you do it in the attitude of curiosity and passion, you are an artist, or what I call a “conscious creative.” You are not satisfied with the status quo; you find your own answers. You forge your own path.
The journey of the conscious creative is one of˛adventure and courage. It isn’t always easy, but a creative life is extremely rewarding. For an artist, it is the only life worth living.

Laura Ezekiel interviews Aliyah Marr, author of the book: Unplug From the Matrix.
"The Golden Age of Gaia has been foretold by many ancient texts, and we are the ones who will create this "heaven on Earth" once again. But first, we must each consciously unplug from the Matrix. Are you ready to know the truth? Once you know the truth, you can never go back."
What if it were true, that we are asleep at the wheel, programmed into believing that an illusion is our lives? Each day we walk a fine line between awareness and sleep. Deja vu and seeming coincidence jostle our memories slightly, only to be dismissed.
Ever have the feeling that you've done this before? That you were here before, that you know the answer, but you just can't put your finger on it? Join us as we explore the possibility that we live in a dream state, that if we could just remember we would Unplug From the Matrix!
This week marked Vincent van Gogh's 162nd birthday. The always-illuminating Maria Popova celebrated in her Brainpickings newsletter by bringing back studies linking van Gogh's celebrated 1889 painting The Starry Night — where light and clouds flow in turbulent swirls on the night sky — with studies of turbulence in fluid flows.
How this works is one of the hardest questions in modern physics.
The connection has an interesting history, being inspired by "a picture of a distant star from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, where eddies probably caused by dust and gas turbulence are clearly seen," as physicist José Luis Aragón of the Autonomous University of Mexico in Queretaro, and his collaborators from Spain and England, wrote in a paper from June 2006. You can see the picture, from a March 4, 2004, NASA press release here. The scientists wanted to check whether there was some kind of mathematical correlation between van Gogh's creation and turbulence as measured in natural phenomena.
They found that van Gogh's art, in particular in paintings from periods when his mental illness was at a peak, mirrors natural turbulence down to mathematical precision...

Veronica Entwistle interviews Aliyah Marr on her show, Paradigm Shifters.
Aliyah’s books, talks, and her divination cards are portals to activations through art, lines, multi dimensional symbols and so much more. What does Aliyah say about our future? That there is abundant awakening on our planet that is activating a collective of beings with the use of choice to consciously create reality from the inside out.

Video Description (1 and a half minutes): "Motion sculptures for CCTV Documentary Channel is a digital metaphor of phenomenal blinks and moments that life consists of. In four Idents we follow a visual performance of organic and vital substance, animated using data of actors movements.
Idents visualize four different themes. To emphasize the emotion of each Ident, we have decided to use different textures of steel, wood and glass. Motion sculpture of steel reflects old Chinese adage that true power is mastering yourself. Youthful energy of dancers evolve into beautiful organic sculpture. Colorful happiness is the engine of father's and his daughter's joy. Two lovers visualize fragility and vitality of love in the last Ident."
