I saw this painting today and I immediately felt the connection. It shows exactly how my thoughts, if not everyone’s, are created.
I always say best ideas are originated from the subconscious, since our consciousness is too busy with our reality. The trick is finding a way to reel it in. The guy fishing represents the subconscious, and the fishing pole is what anyone would use to reel the catch, the bait can be different, different baits, different ideas.
To get to the subconscious one must be isolated from the reality, my ways… my favorite baits are music and jogging, they are not the only ones, but they are more available to me, and they really help me escape my surroundings.
The fishing is on hold for me until the end of this month, my graduation is only weeks away from me, and I am in the process of releasing the paperback copy of Psychs. So until then, my subconscious would have to do everything for me, and once I have the time, I’ll try to summon him.
How would you do it?
