Джулия Кэмерон

Дата рождения: 4. Март 1948

Джулия Кэмерон — автор стихов, пьес, телевизионных сценариев, но наибольшую известность ей принесли ставшие бестселлерами книги, посвященные творческим способностям человека. Самая известная её книга — «Путь художника».

„Фраза «Я работаю» окружена ореолом почтительного одобрения. В действительности мы часто работаем, чтобы избежать встречи с самими собой, с нашими супругами, с нашими истинными чувствами.“

„По-настоящему нас тянет заниматься тем, что нам предначертано. И когда мы начинаем это делать, сразу находятся деньги, открываются нужные двери, мы чувствуем себя полезными, а работа кажется игрой.“

„Most of us are not raised to actively encounter our destiny. We may not know that we have one. As children, we are seldom told we have a place in life that is uniquely ours alone. Instead, we are encouraged to believe that our life should somehow fulfill the expectations of others, that we will (or should) find our satisfactions as they have found theirs. Rather than being taugh to ask ourselves who we are, we are schooled to ask others. We are, in effect, trained to listen to others' versions of ourselves. We are brought up in our life as told to us by someone else! When we survey our lives, seeking to fulfill our creativity, we often see we had a dream that went glimmering because we believed, and those around us believed, that the dream was beyond our reach. Many of us would have been, or at least might have been, done, tried something, if...
If we had known who we really were.“

„In times of pain, when the future is too terrifying to contemplate and the past too painful to remember, I have learned to pay attention to right now. The precise moment I was in was always the only safe place for me.“ The Artist's Way

„As you move toward a dream, the dream moves toward you.“

„Leap, and the net will appear.“ The Artist's Way

„Life is a spiritual dance and that our unseen partner has steps to teach us if we will allow ourselves to be led. The next time you are restless, remind yourself it is the universe asking 'Shall we dance?“

„You do not need to work to become spiritual. Youspiritual; you need only to remember that fact. Spirit is within you. God is within you. (67)“ God is No Laughing Matter

„We should write because it is human nature to write. Writing claims our world. It makes it directly and specifically our own. We should write because humans are spiritual beings and writing is a powerful form of prayer and meditation, connecting us both to our own insights and to a higher and deeper level of inner guidance.

We should write because writing brings clarity and passion to the act of living. Writing is sensual, experiential, grounding. We should write because writing is good for the soul. We should write because writing yields us a body of work, a felt path through the world we live in.

We should write, above all, because we are writers, whether we call ourselves that or not.“
The Right to Write: An Invitation and Initiation into the Writing Life

„God does not give us more than we can handle," I am told but I wonder if God doesn't overestimate me just a little. Or perhaps, and this is likely, I underestimate God.“ Finding Water: The Art of Perseverance

„The voice of our original self is often muffled, overwhelmed, even strangled, by the voices of other people’s expectations.“

„Writing is like breathing, it's possible to learn to do it well, but the point is to do it no matter what.“ The Right to Write: An Invitation and Initiation into the Writing Life

„Creativity requires faith. Faith requires that we relinquish control.“

„Being in the mood to write, like being in the mood to make love, is a luxury that isn't necessary in a long-term relationship. Just as the first caress can lead to a change of heart, the first sentence, however tentative and awkward, can lead to a desire to go just a little further.“ The Right to Write: An Invitation and Initiation into the Writing Life

„Pray to catch the bus, then run as fast as you can.“ The Artist's Way

„We need to bridge our sense of loneliness and disconnection with a sense of community and continuity even if we must manufacture it from our time on the Web and our use of calling cards to connect long distance. We must “log on” somewhere, and if it is only in cyberspace, that is still far better than nowhere at all. (264)“ God is No Laughing Matter
