From Nikola Tesla: “Inspiration literally means to breathe in: to allow air to flow in the lungs. Breath for the physical body of course means taking in oxygen, prana (which for some might be the anti-entropic orgone energy), and other trace substances, subtle and unsubtle that inform your body about your immediate environment, such as whether or not you burned the toast.
“However, though inspiration for the mind or soul can be encouraged with physical breath, the soul’s inspiration uses a very different, dream-like method of communicating the Divine Intention through the dimension of Identity by stepping down the “immobile” core of Para-light by creating a tiny opening to much higher energies through a flash of insight. Like a kaleidoscope, the tiny yet whole parts of the self must shift and change until the correct combination is found to allow the light through, Receptivity in the sense of petitioning for assistance is the equivalent of tipping the kaleidoscope: it allows things to move in at least one direction, and separates some of the inner pieces, perhaps enough to allow the light to enter. Emotional shocks can shake the parts of you until they fall into a new form, though if the shock is too great, your mind and spirit can be shattered much as the kaleidoscope can be broken, However, the analogy breaks down because, as though the device could fix itself, inspiration can be used to solve the effect of the shock,
“However, another important thing to understand about inspiration is that it requires a state of humble pliability. Humble in its original sense, of “able to be taught,” and pliable in the sense of being able to change your mind, your methods, your expectations and your direction of working, perhaps one part at a time, and perhaps everything at once. Artists, writers, healers and other inspired people often seem erratic, capricious and uncertain because they must respond to the Divine Intention with that same responsive flexibility of the Divine Mind itself.”
