Ever wondered how and where I get my ideas for these weekly blogs?
Answer: They just come to me.
That might be oversimplifying things a bit, but on the whole, that is precisely how it happens. Once or twice a week (on average) a bolt of metaphysical lightning strikes my brain—and simultaneously my heart as well—and somehow I just know that the subject idea that comes would make a good blog article (or not).

Thus, once I have a main idea, topic, or title in mind, I am usually "good-to-go." Why? Because I have done enough reading, pondering, study, travel, and living to have dug a very deep well of knowledge, information, and insights that I can endlessly draw from to fill-in-the-blanks.
When I began writing weekly blog articles last year, I worried a little bit that I might run out of ideas after a while, especially considering I have committed to this weekly exercise until I retire in the early 2040s.
But seeing as though...
1). I've already published 211 articles since 2014 (including 37-in-a-row since last September).
2). I currently have a list of 25 new blog article ideas (over six-months worth), all of which just came to me. In other words, I never actually sat down and consciously compiled a list of ideas to write about because I already had a surplus of ideas that my Muse delivered up free gratis. And lastly...
3). My Muse keeps sending me new ideas all the time.
Suffice it to say, I don't really worry anymore about running out of ideas.
So what exactly is the source behind one's artistic, creative, pedagogical, or other inspirational "Muse"?
Scientifically speaking, we don't exactly know the answer to that question. Depending on one's personal and/or religious beliefs, an individual may attribute the genesis for such inspiration to a variety of different metaphysical, spiritual, or ontological means or sources. But regardless of the whats or wheres, there aren't many people who would deny experiencing metaphysical communication, intuition, or insights of various forms throughout their life's many experiences.
And THAT is the magic of my—and your—own, personal MUSE!
In other words, no matter how scientifically inexplicable such experiences may be, anyone who has experienced metaphysical communication or insight in one form or another cannot in good conscience deny its existence, nor can they doubt its authenticity or legitimacy.
It is a very real phenomenon.
