Some thoughts after doing
the Morning Pages for 6 months.
Morning Pages introduced by
Julia Cameron in her book 'The Artist's Way'.
Basically, you write whatever that
comes up in your mind for 3 pages
every morning after you wake up.
One thing I noticed was that
it's like a therapy session.
Sometimes, I would start out writing,
'I'm having trouble with ~, what should I do?'
I keep on writing whatever that comes up.
Eventually, you start to see a path or some
kind of answer on the page and figure things out.
Sometimes you don't know where the words are
coming from, even though you are the one writing.
The words on the page gives you insight or cheers you up.
A very curious experience.
Of course, not everything you
write on the page are insightful,
some things are just silly, but that's ok.
It feels like getting out whatever that's
inside you, kind of like cleaning a room.
It's a cleansing experience.
It's also a way to get to
know yourself on a deeper level.
Knowing where you stand on your journey.
What's really important to me?
The pages will show you.
