A Method Of Effortless Inspiration

Our goal, with this essay, is twofold.

To clarify a new, exciting method. But, also, to explore infinity.

Or, more specifically, to explore infinity, as it relates to our new, exciting method.

Right before we begin, there is one thing to note.

Our method is centered on, and rooted within, inspiration.

You can employ this method for inspiration.

But, also, as you will soon see, quite a few other things.

A Simple Method

The method you are about to learn is simple.

You can use it for inspiration.

But, also, ideas, concepts, awe, enthusiasm, passion.

And so on and so forth, endlessly and infinitely; ad infinitum.

Our method involves setting an intention.

Your intention might be for inspiration. Or, again, new ideas, awe, passion, a new path; ad infinitum.

You can be specific. Or, vast, open-ended.

And so on and so forth, endlessly and infinitely; ad infinitum.

Your intention may be enough to get things moving. But, if it isn’t, this method can, and will, help you.

Right before we clarify the essence of this method, though, there is one last thing to mention.

You can find some of these ideas, packaged in a slightly different manner, in my “7 Methods For Effortless Subconscious Idea Incubation.”

The essay you are about to read is a new variation on those ideas.

Our method, then, is simple.

You must select your intention. And, then, select or find — ad infinitum — three things that may inspire you.

Just as an example, you can select three pieces of music and, then, listen to them, while paying very close attention to them, so that you can become inspired.

Or, you can read from three of your favorite books, for a few minutes.

You can even watch three random videos or read three random essays or walk to three new places or explore three new subjects — ad infinitum — to become inspired.

And so on and so forth, endlessly and infinitely; ad infinitum.

Outside of that, you don’t even need to select three or four or any number; you can select, or enjoy, as much, or as little, as you want; ad infinitum.

Right after you set your intention, just enjoy your selection and, then, allow yourself to become inspired.

It is simple. But, it is effective; the intention guides the way, and being open to what you are engaging with, while actually engaging with it, allows inspiration to arise in a nearly effortless manner.

The Presence Of Infinity

Our method is infinite.

It is an infinite, in an infinite number of ways, manners, forms, styles; ad infinitum.

You might consider it infinitely flexible, infinitely vast, infinitely rich, infinitely deep; ad infinitum.

Just as an example, you can, using this method, listen to or explore or engage with — ad infinitum — anything and everything — ad infinitum — for inspiration and novelty and new ideas; ad infinitum.

Right within such notions, there is infinite flexibility, infinite variety, infinite potential, infinite possibility, infinite wonder, infinite depth; ad infinitum.

Our method is infinitely flexible.

Just as it is infinitely vast, infinitely rich, infinitely open-ended, infinitely deep; ad infinitum.

A neverending wealth of possibilities, paths, potentials — ad infinitum — are available, and capable of being experienced — ad infinitum — through its use, application, employment; ad infinitum.

You can find, within its vastness, infinite flexibility, variety, possibility, creativity, potential; ad infinitum.

Outside of the above, you can pair or combine — ad infinitum — infinite activities, methods, systems, ideas — ad infinitum — with this method.

Just as an example, you can pair this method with our “Your Desired Experience” gratitude game, which can allow you to experience greater inspiration, new ideas, exciting possibilities — ad infinitum — with greater ease.

And so on and so forth, endlessly and infinitely; ad infinitum.

The infinite is present within this concept. But, the funny thing about this, is that, if you spent 158 trillion years or endless eternities — ad infinitum — exploring or using — ad infinitum — this concept or any of its infinite facets or elements — ad infinitum — you would never reach an ending, boundary, or limit; ad infinitum.

Just as an example, you can navigate through endless singularities of notions and ideas — ad infinitum — that exist beyond and transcend — ad infinitum — quantities and numbers — ad infinitum — never reaching an ending or boundary — ad infinitum — to the endless ways you can use or explore — ad infinitum — this concept or what it creates and allows for — ad infinitum — and all of that; ad infinitum.

Even if you transcended infinity and time and numbers and consciousness — ad infinitum — and went through endless conceptual levels and experiences and conceptual matrices of infinity and time and space and consciousness — ad infinitum — at infinite rates, speeds, quantities — ad infinitum — and infinite higher concepts and notions and visions — ad infinitum — you would still never reach any endings, boundaries, or limits; ad infinitum.

And so on and so forth, endlessly and infinitely; ad infinitum.

Some Examples

Right before we wrap this up, there are three examples to share.

Or, more specifically, three examples to share, regarding this method, and its use.

Our first example involves listening to music and really, really paying attention to it.

On a day that wasn’t so long ago, I listened to Enigma’s “I Love You…I’ll Kill You,” paying very close attention to it, while closing my eyes.

A wealth of story ideas came to me. These story ideas were paired with a variety of images.

None of these stories were very good. But, they were a lot of fun to write!

Our second example occured several days ago; I read three different Wikipedia pages — “Frank Lloyd Wright,” “Notebooks,” and a page on the Baha’i Faith — which led to notions of architectures of writing and thought that grow in our minds and, then, futurist visions of people who build mental architectures we can install and use, like software, but also for transcending our limits and things.

Sorry. The above is a mouthful.

Our third, and final, example is — or, perhaps, was — reading three of our old essays. And, this led to the essay you are reading right now.

It didn’t just lead to that essay, though. Several more essays will be published soon, each one arising from this lovely, lovely act of inspiration.


Just to wrap this up, thank you for reading!

If you enjoyed this essay, then that is lovely. But, if you didn’t, then my apologies.

No matter what, thank you so much for reading!

Best wishes and please, please, please have a lovely day!
