Ep17: Steve Jobs's Distortion Field
Reality distortion field is a term first used by Bud Tribble at Apple Computer in 1981, to describe company co-founder Steve Jobs' charisma and its effects on the developers working on the Macintosh project. Steve Jobs's “reality distortion field” was a personal refusal to accept limitations that stood in the way of his ideas, to convince himself that any difficulty was surmountable. This “field” was so strong that he was able to convince others that they, too, could achieve the impossible.

Why are you creating what you are creating? If you're given a billion dollars right now, would you still be doing it? If you have only another 6 months to live, would you still be doing it?

Ep15: Are you truly an Artist?
Who is an Artist? We'll be discussing this question in this episode. CREATE and SHARE! If you're not doing that, I know it might seem harsh, but, you're not truly an artist! Creating merely qualifies you as an artist but sharing ensures you're staying true to that qualification. By sharing you're truly being an artist. And it's also true that if you've created something truly creative, then the automatic tendency would be to share it with people, right? "Being called an artist is easy, being an artist is hard. But please choose the 'hard!' Please be an artist in the world of hacks! Artist is not a status quo. Being an artist is a responsibility! Summon enough courage to take that responsibility!"

Ep14: Collaboration - An Artist's superpower
When you alone have the ability to make something amazing by tapping into your creativity, just imagine multiplying the same effect. Just imagine multiplying your imagination and creativity n times. And that's exactly what collaboration brings you, it gives you the opportunity to multiply the imagination and creativity that you get to put into your work. It's like adding multi-core processors to your PC. And that, is definitely a superpower, don't you think?

Ep13: Delusions - Part 2 | Humility & Introspection
The path that is the most worth traveling is always the hardest one to travel in. It takes more to be a monk than to be a criminal. But it's worth it. But once you realize it and bring clear meaning to that struggle and pain, then all of it will turn into points of happiness, everything normalizes. Just because there is no rich guy around you who has earned in an honest way, doesn't mean you can't be the one. And just because the people around you won't value the good in you as much as the money you earn, doesn't mean you have to value money over your goodness. Choose wisely.

Ep12: Believe | Hope | Faith
In episode 6: God, I tried to explain to you logically, why there is god, and why you have to believe him. I think that explanation was enough for your logical mind to accept his presence. But even if your logical mind accepts there is god, you may still find believing and having faith in him difficult. If not for you, at least I have faced those difficulties. Even though sharing this was a little bit uncomfortable for me, I decided to be completely transparent anyway.

Ep11: Maya! | Delusion
What is Maya? It is simply, delusion. Maya is a state where you believe something is true and once you realize the truth beyond that, suddenly, the previously believed truth is destroyed. A delusion is a place easy to go and not know you're there and humility and introspection are great tools to fight this.

Ep10: Many musicians (artists) are forgetting this!
I think it has become our natural tendency. As Humans, we tend to forget why we even got into something. People get into science and forget it's about curiosity and of seeking the truths of reality. Gets into earning money and forgets it's about freedom to do whatever and whenever you like to do and gets deviated by overworking, hoarding, and greed for more. Gets into spirituality and forgets it's about the journey, instead gets confused with words like attainment. Gets into religion and forgets it's about faith, hope, surrendering, and other values to align your life, instead gets into delusion and superstition. People get into music or any art, but forget it's about the experience and deviates themselves to what's trending or gets trapped in a competitive world of its own. In fact, Humans get into this world with a purpose of their own, aligned with the consciousness but wander distracted towards everything his horse minds race towards.

Ep8: The Gratitude Trap
Of course, it's good for you to pause your working once in a while, maybe 1 or 2 days in a week or probably a week after 2 months of creative work. And being grateful for just the little things as simple as just living, breathing and watching the sunrise and set is surely a well-deserved therapy you're giving to your body, mind and soul. But instead of resuming to work towards whatever we want to pursue and starting to move the settled boulder if we get accustomed to the inertia induced by the pause we took, it doesn't help you. The stagnation begins. Life must have both entropy and slowness, then only will it be in balance. If you just go with the flow, you are just a dead fish.
