Brahms described his exalted state when he composed music as pure inspiration outside himself. This resembles a semi-trance state, where one goes through a small door to an immense new world… where reality orientation is suspended but not lost. To create, the mind must withdraw from the physical self and everyday concerns for a time to focus forces. This is a tender, sensitive time when humans often choose solitude, or seek to retreat into the wilderness to quiet the brain in preparation for the mind’s action. When intense creative urges have taken their course, one generally wishes to return to material reality…. Let us not confuse the limitations of material flesh with the infinite aspects of the mind.”
