The War of Art is not just for artists, but for spiritual aspirants too. We are souls, spiritual beings, and we are supposed to rule. Why don’t we? Because the physical world is a tricky usurper. It tyrannizes us with all sorts of big and small problems – resistance – to the point that we believe that it is much more powerful than us. That is an illusion. We are used to this illusion. We are used that challenges and bosses push us around. What happens if we drop out and become an artist or seeker of enlightenment (or a boss). We rely on ourselves to push through resistance. That is a lonely struggle and you need all the help you can get. This book helps.
