Do you make the time each day to be a channel to tap into your creative source? As a being which comes from some unlimited creative source, that infinite power is within you. We all express it in different ways: music, writing, or painting; but the vital key is connecting to the creative energy each and everyday.
About a week ago, I finally downloaded Spotify and began listening to the Hamilton Musical by Lin Manuel Miranda. To hear this story of Alexander Hamilton’s life through the lens of Miranda is one of truest expressions of creative source I have ever experienced. Talk about doing your work. This is a masterpiece of true Broadway proportions. Within the first lines, I was hooked. I have since been inspired to create on many different levels. I wrote a song the other day and was led to other works I had written in old journals. I even turned some poetic release into a beautifully flowing rap sonnet.
How does a bastard, orphan, son of a whore
And a Scotsman, dropped in the middle of a forgotten spot in the Caribbean by providence impoverished,
In squalor, grow up to be a hero and a scholar?- Opening line of Hamilton
Since this work has come onto my “most played” list on Spotify I wanted to make a Creative Playlist for you all to get inspired. With perfectly placed music references from Biggie, Mobb Deep, A Tribe Called Quest, Beastie Boys, DMX, Jay-Z, and the classic Grand Master Flash; this show does not disappoint. Also, knowing Quest Love had a major role in this creation makes my heart freaking fly! There are so many layers of digging you can discover in Hamilton. If you need much convincing watch the a clip from Manuel’s Drunk History episode below. It’s as if I could see the musical playing out in my head and was taken on a journey. I laughed, cried, and still was shocked when he died! It takes some true source energy to be able to do this for someone other than your own minds creation.
