“Inspired people take the mystery of inspiration as a given; this doesn’t mean they don’t appreciate it or that they abuse it but they know their job is to be a conduit, a portal in time, opening themselves to continual inspiration and then mastering the craft of taking their ideas and moving through their resistance to turn those ideas into songs, plays, books, articles, TV programmes or whatever their craft is. Inspired people simply have no doubt about the ongoing and continual presence of inspiration; they know the job is to be the in-between – the channel between the divine and the time-bound.”
Nick Williams, author of How to Be Inspired, tells the Book Detective why he believes in the power of inspiration and why we should all put it at the centre of our lives. Over the years he has learnt how to put out the welcome mat for inspiration, navigate the turbulent waters of fear and resistance, and create supportive communities around him. He has also discovered that there are greater forces at work than just market forces.
Nick is a huge fan of the author Steven Pressfield who said, ‘We were put here on earth to act as agents of the Infinite, to bring into existence that which is not yet, but which will be, through us.”
There was once a time when Nick felt that if you became inspired about something, you should go and lie down for half an hour and let it pass. Now a bestselling author and founder of the Spiritual Pro Global Community, Nick says, ‘We all matter, we are all significant and we are the ones we have been waiting for.’
