Mastery is a force equivalent to mind control and magic when used right. The power a master holds is the highest a man can achieve in his earthly form. The best works of art, music, writing, etc created by masters have profoundly affected people all over the world for ages.
There are many forms of mastery and different ways to approach it:
Let’s decode what mastery is all about
Mastery at its core is the perfection of skill, working on it tirelessly and making progress within the field of your expertise relentlessly. It involves building your entire life around your craft and committing to it fully.
A small hobby you practice once a week is not mastery and never will be. To become a master you have to put your heart and soul into your craft.
A craft that you have perfected over a lifetime through daily practice, creation, and innovation is what mastery is all about.
Something to notice about the greatest masters from all fields is that they all shared the same outlook on life. After mastering their craft they all started feeling a force of life moving in them with a deep intuition that cannot be taught by any teacher other than experience. When you are one with your craft, you develop a feeling that is beyond what words or explanations can describe. It is a force that allows creations bigger than life to manifest and move people to a state of ecstasy.
For example, a master painter feels the strokes of the brush to perfection and knows exactly the pressure to apply to the canvas, what shadow will fit the right scene, and how to blend the colors to his exact preference. Mastery involves deep observation, understanding of the mechanics of the craft, and drawing from various sources of knowledge.
One of the secrets many masters hold is their ability to tap into “divine energy” as described by many of them. The ability to sense, intuitively, the right move they must make, or obtain divine inspiration that isn’t commonly available to the crowds who move from fad to fad. When the master is highly attuned to his inner voice, he is able to manifest the most striking creations that move people deeply.
Masters have been known to cause the strongest reactions from people, whether a positive, awe-filled reaction or induce negative feelings of envy and desire for destruction. An example of that is John Lennon’s assassination by an obsessed fan or the man who spread a cake on The Mona Lisa by Leonardo Da Vinci.
Imagine being these guys:
Mastery has the incredible power of moving people and creating intense emotions, whether good or bad. Achieving mastery is wielding the power that most have never been able to achieve, it is a badge of honor and value that only a few get. It is highly valuable and prized and you will be rewarded greatly for your showmanship and the work you create.
But I must warn you, if you decide to walk on the path of mastery purely for its benefits and not for the love of the craft, you will be blinded by it and soon lose track.
