The State of Grace

An interviewer asked singer-songwriter Leonard  Cohen if he needed to feel bothered and agitated in order to stimulate his creativity. Cohen said no. “When I get up in the morning,” he testified,  “My real concern is to discover whether I’m in a state of grace.”

Surprised, the interviewer asked, “What do you mean by a state of
grace?” Cohen described it as a knack for balance that he called on to ride the chaos around him. He knew he couldn’t fix or banish the chaos—and it would be arrogant to try. His state of grace was more like skiing skillfully down a hill, gliding along the contours of unpredictable terrain.

Cohen’s definition, is the state of grace you should cultivate right now.

I bet it will stimulate your creativity in ways that surprise and delight you.
