“You can build great wisdom and genius by spending time each day in grateful communion with your inner voice. What better way of creating a more fulfilling life than by mastering the art of tuning into your most inspired and ingenious self, your inner voice?

Writing with Purpose

purposeblog By Wes Annac, Editor, Culture of Awareness & Openhearted Rebel

Writing is a powerful tool that can be used to entertain, inform, and inspire people to change the world. Regardless of your reason for doing it, writing provides an outlet for you to express yourself and reach an audience of enthusiastic readers.

Research into any area of society (or spirituality) will show that there are plenty of topics to write about. Some topics are considered more important than others, and personally, I often write about things that interest me instead of using every article to search for truth.

For example: I like to write about spiritual topics some readers would think are silly. I consider myself “spiritual”, but I write about them because they interest me; not because I want to convince people they’re true. I’m just having fun and sharing something that could be true or not. You decide.

I enjoy writing about interesting topics, even if I’m the only one who finds them interesting. I also enjoy researching, sharing truth, and calling out the ruling elite. If a topic seems worthy of covering, I’ll give it a shot.

The Artist’s Responsibility

I’ll write about almost anything, but lately, I find I want to cover more meaningful topics. I want to write about things that are close to my heart, things that deepen my understanding of certain spiritual concepts, and overall, things that matter.

Most of what’s happening in the world is unaddressed by artists with a significant enough influence to encourage change. This makes it clear that the time for sitting and waiting for someone to address these problems is over. The time for writers, musicians, and artists of all kinds to devote their work to a meaningful cause is now.

Anyone with a talent that puts them in the public eye has an opportunity to encourage change. Even if you consider yourself untalented, you were put here to help this planet. To convince yourself otherwise is to deny your potential. We’re here to move the world forward, and we can do it by using the things we’re passionate about to help others and encourage change.

I can get more out of writing if I use it for a meaningful cause than if I use it solely for entertainment.

It helps to know I’m not alone in the desire to promote justice, peace, and prosperity for a world wounded by the greed and carelessness of the upper class. Ultimately, this movement will succeed because of our numbers and resounding unwillingness to give up.

Unwavering Dedication

Until recently, I lacked dedication. Now, I plan to work harder, address a wider range of issues, and produce more meaningful, high-quality articles.

History shows that only those dedicated enough to work consistently toward their goals (sacrificing themselves in some cases) will achieve success. Nothing less than unwavering dedication is required. I’m not saying we should exhaust ourselves or leave no room for downtime, but we should push ourselves to achieve more in a world where most are content to achieve less.

Don’t Be Afraid

For those who lack inspiration, I recommend addressing issues close to your heart that you might have ignored before. Don’t be afraid to express yourself or pour your heart and soul into your work, because it’s your passion. You’re supposed to get the most out of it.

Most importantly, use it to help people. The world could use more selfless people, and depending on what your passion is, there are probably countless ways you can use it to help others. You just have to discover the best ways for you, pursue them, and keep going when they challenge you.

When you reach a point where nothing can put out your fire, you’ll be in an optimal state to help the world by doing what you love.

When I first started blogging, I was inspired by channeled messages and spiritual guides. Some people are surprised when I say this because it’s a little different from what I write about now, but at the time, it lit a fire in my heart.

I even practiced channeling and became well-known for channeling messages from various sources. Now, I’m inspired to write from the heart about anything I feel is important or relevant to this movement, and the inspiration – as well as the goal – is the same as it was before.

Before, the goal was to connect with a higher consciousness by channeling spiritual guides. Now, the goal is to connect with this same consciousness, which some call God, the higher self, creative inspiration, etc., and express what comes through. Continue reading

I decided to commit to writing because it opens me up to a wellspring of guidance and creativity.

For me, this makes it a powerful form of meditation. It becomes meditation when I open my mind and write from the heart, and I’ve come to the conclusion that it connects me with a higher consciousness. Some call this consciousness God; some call it the higher self; some interpret it as an inner voice.

Reggae legend Bob Marley said in one of his final interviews that everyone has an inner voice ‘talking’ to them and we should listen to it. Writing brings me in sync with this voice, and putting pen to paper gives it free reign to express itself. Continue reading

Creativity Feeds the Soul

I think creativity and the transformation of consciousness have more in common than most people think. My fellow creative minds probably know what I mean, and we feel like something’s missing if we aren’t hard at work.

It’s as if creativity feeds the soul. Continue reading

Awareness Diminishes Fear

Are you afraid to take the next step in your work, your relationship or another area of life? Many people who are ready for this next step tend to hesitate, and they stay on the same level they’ve always been at as a result.

We can avoid this by asking ourselves if we’re truly ready to grow and face new challenges, and if we are, facing those challenges head-on. There will be plenty of obstacles, but we can get past them if we keep our goals in mind as well as why we want to advance in the first place. Continue reading

Empower Yourself by Challenging Yourself

“Everything is hard before it’s easy” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

I’m thinking about making videos for the next thirty days, because I want to communicate things I think are important in a more direct way. The purpose of the videos will be to inspire and uplift people in a similar way as my writings, and I’ll get as much out of them as anyone else because they’ll challenge me and help me get better.

Making a video can be nerve-wracking, because I haven’t done it very much and I’m forced to deal with the fear and nervousness that come with trying something new. Fear has stopped too many revolutionary minds from achieving great things, and I don’t want to let it stop me from communicating with you all more directly.

Communication is the main aspect of my mission, and there are a lot of things I want to say about life, society and spiritual evolution. Whether I write, speak on video or do anything else, I want to communicate what I feel in my heart. Speaking on video seems like a natural next step for these heart-centered teachings, but I’ll also continue to write because I’ll always have a passion for it. Continue reading
