One With The Work. One With God And Purpose. | Time Capsule

This stock photo was one of the key pieces in understanding what my professional side needed to thrive.

This stock photo was one of the key pieces in understanding what my professional side needed to thrive.

Wednesday morning August 25,
2021

This is the most abstract time capsule so far, because it doesn’t have an external source I can link to.
It’s something I needed to figure out and get clear on, and not so much a direct artistic inspiration like the other topics that inspired me.
What I discuss today will influence my work, but only in an abstract way.

It’s about how to frame what it is I do.

I was already in a final crossing t’s and dotting i’s phase, because a few weeks ago I figured out what the framing, the freedom-based form, needed to be for any paid work that was going to be long term sustainable and satisfying.

I had the title, the words that resonated with me, to know I would never face the same problems again of not understanding why job/ professional situations that were perfectly okay and even desirable for others, did not and would not, ever work for me.
After decades I finally knew, not what was wrong with me;
But what was right.

The paradox was;
My best work, the one you would want to aim for, save, nourish, laminate and never let go?
That was what had been created in full freedom.

And it was like a drug, that was only supplied to me when I respected that the work needed to be created in full freedom.

Anytime I forced myself to be more outcome focused, limit myself, and yield my work so that I would be able to do it more efficiently, label it better, package it up, sell it?
I don’t know if the work suffered, but I did!

I felt deprived of the sweet flowing creative juices I had become addicted to.

So long story short;
Yes, I was happy when I had found a few words, a marker, something to look out for and recognize red flags and such, to get an understanding of when that drug, my best work, and the creative flow could come, and when it would not.
In which case I was better off straight up working for money in an area that made the most money or an area that had other benefits such as great colleagues, connection and meaning;
And I was worse off if I connected it to any areas I loved.

However in hindsight there were two things missing.
And this morning I am able to see those two missing pieces.

Because only knowing you need full creative freedom, is still quite vulnerable you know?
It’s like knowing you should not be smoking, but only as an idea. An “I should”, and then you give it a go.
But it won’t last.

Just like a smoker who wants to quit smoking because it was killing them, I wanted to stop limiting, altering, and cleaning up my work because that was killing it.
But just like them I needed two things:

1. A WHY
I needed to know my personal and emotionally charged reason to want it.
WHY, did I want my work to come out unaltered, and why did I need the thrill of being in creative flow?

and the other thing quitting smokers and me needed:

2. Understanding the function the habit had
I needed to understand the pattern, the reasons, behind me defaulting to this. Obviously altering my work, planning it, restricting myself was giving me something. Or I would not be so prone to it, and quitting it would not have to be such an undertaking, including relapses because I ve been trying to quit planning and limiting myself for years.
I needed to understand what was in it for me.

And today, this morning, I figured it out.

The penny dropped when I was studying the topic of hustle culture and burnout by successful people, and how they all regretted having spent so much time on their work and missing out on family time, friends, and even love.
The message was:
“Don’t hustle, don’t strive so much. Focus on the things that matter!”
And as much as I agreed with that, I knew that by prioritizing my friends and family, I would not be happy.
That’s when I saw the bigger picture:

To me my work IS the priority. I don’t feel alive unless I write, create, and communicate THROUGH my work.
Not only is being in communication with my work required, before I can communicate in real life, but many people I know read my work and relate to me through my work.
I would not be able to show up in the real world, if I had not first invested in my daily creative work.

For a moment one step back to the “I don’t feel alive” part;
The creative satisfaction, the feeling of flow, purpose, being one with God, only comes when I am fully absorbed and do whatever wants to be done.
The dopamine rush is (unfortunately) not limited to blogging or other art forms that are pret-a-porter and can be posted!
I ve also “lost” days to archiving my notebooks, to creating vision board cards, sorting out old downloads and other files. 
They were such good days that at night I would write in my diary:
“I had such an amazing day!!’
Also realizing that I had not seen anyone. That technically, in a worldly sense, I had not made any connections.
And yet I went to sleep with a blush on my cheeks as if I had a new lover.

So what I found out is this:

The work I am here to do in this world, is a fully submerged, timeless experience of totally being one with the work.
Whatever the work is that day or at that moment.
It is the moment I come alive and can feel God, The Universe, Life, flowing through me. And because there isn’t any resistance I would describe this experience of working, as the most satisfying human experience imaginable.
And coming from someone who loves sex, that is saying something.

But the reason I want to plan things, steer towards a certain outcome, the reason I want to (plan to) create something I can post, for all of my three main outlets, where this work for LS Harteveld is just one of them;
That reason is because I want that connection with other people.

I am afraid I will get isolated, in all ways both professionally as well as personally, if I don’t show up because I m submerged in my work.
That I have make a connection in my case online, and that I have to share my work in order for it to have value for other people.
There is a fear that I will not be loved nor paid, to be offline or to do other forms of deep work.
That I have to show up online, and therefor must push and plan, for work to have a visible, shareable outcome. 

The reason I fall prey to wanting to plan my work, and post every day for all my accounts, and run the risk of burnout, just like those Type A hustlers who regret it later;
Is because I still feel I need to do that to be successful.
Guilty as charged.

But unlike the hustle culture, for me posting those things is also connected to my social life. I connect over the internet in pretty much the same way as I do in real life, and I do not have children or a partner, who do not get attention if I work too much.
So my payoff for hustling, in the sense of delivering something of value and making a (whether paid or not) connection, is more than just money.
It is human connection.
Love.

And The Work?
The work burned out Type A hustlers tell us we should not be prioritizing so much, and focus on the things that matter, and that you will remember when you are on your deathbed?
The work, that they say we should not make so important because it ultimately isn’t?

That work is the closest connection I have, to God.

1994 project’s secret twin | Time Capsule

Tuesday morning August 24,
2021/ 1996 (1996 performance project)

“At work, my primary tools would be paper
— a kind of very, very thin, stiff, dry, fragile fabric for writing on —
pens, and my landline desk phone.”

from:
the 1994 time travel article in the New York Times

 

This morning I started the official, dedicated study of Generation X;
The cohort born between 1965 and 1975/1980, depending on who you ask.

If you ask the New York Times, they will say “until 1980″, but will offer anyone born between late 70s early 80s, the Xennials, a very compassionate article, including a test to determine if you’re officially Gen X-er or no.

But, in what is probably their most factual/ inspirational article, the writer explained that it could very well be that generation X is extremely small;
Maybe even as small as 8 years.

Most people I know who ever copped to X-ness were born in the later ’60s or early ’70s,
a window of maybe eight years.

(My wife was born in 1979 and has no idea who Fonzie is. Case closed.)

My favorite NYT Gen X story by Alex Williams
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/14/style/gen-x-millenials.html 

I found the Alex Williams story and the Xennial test in what I will call New York Times’ ”mainframe article” on Gen X.
As little as I know about computers I imagine the term mainframe, to be a very generational thing, that few born outside the 1965-1980 would use.

This is that New York Times mainframe article, that lead me to all others:
This Gen X Mess

Another article found through this mainframe article, was an a one-week experiment to try and live 25 years ago.
I had stumbled upon the secret twin from my own project!

In 2019 I started a time travel project, then called 1994.
You can find this very first year of posts here, but the project is already in its third year.
Despite the many setbacks, most notably my lover breaking up late 2019/1994, which threatened to make my 1995 diary incredibly boring.
And then there was the pandemic limiting story lines in 1995 to current day;
Despite those things it is my longest running project to date.

But I had no idea that it had a twin! That someone else, in this case the New York Times had also come up with the idea to revisit this year.
And although I had been aware what Generation X was, I was unaware that my 1994 project was “A Gen X” thing.
And that our generational clock, was indicating it was time to take a trip down memory lane.

For a week or three years, depending how much you were prepared to invest.

And boy, does the author of that article take things seriously! 
Where my project has been more a narrative, a way to tell personal stories without actually diary writing in current day; 
This project DOES go all in!

Without cell phone, email, and so on.

I m so happy I found this gem, and it will bring my own 1994/1996 (now) project to an entirely new level of commitment for my own project to live as if it is 25 years ago.
Maybe, for the very first time since starting this project in 2019 (1994), I feel it has been offered a pair of wings.
Analog, grungy, 1996 originals, wings! 

I never finished the mainframe article on Generation X, and jumped straight into the 1994 project.
It was so amazing to find a kindred spirit after two years of doing this project by myself!

The articles are paid, you will get one or a few for free.
But when I had used those up, I subscribed to The New York Times, a
n act that can get you into trouble in some circles.
I m not exactly sure why NYT is a paper non grata, but since their mainframe article with all the other extra articles is such a treasure chest, I absolute want unlimited access to it.

And besides, so what if The New York Times is not PC, and I m not supposed to subscribe?

If Generation X is known for anything;
It’s for being the most skeptic and rebellious of the whole lot.

The Dragonfly | Time Capsule

dragonfly6On Saturday morning 21 August, around 6.30 and after another terrible and yet at the same time inspiring night because I found a few pieces that had been missing from the puzzle of my life;
I woke up and knew that I had 3, 4 hours sleep tops, and decided to try and get back to sleep, after I had checked on the cats, and made arrangements for them to be okay the first hours of the day.

I cleaned out their litter boxes, opened the curtains, gave them dry food, and opened the balcony door.
When I was back in bed I heard one cat growling which he does when he has caught something.

I wondered what it was, since it was too light for moths or those brown beetles he catches at night.
It was a dragonfly.

It required more effort to be caught and evacuated than beetles and moths, and I was a bit scared of him.
But I was also very grateful he was making it out alive.
He took off out of my bedroom window. 

Back in bed I wondered what the spiritual meaning of the dragonfly was.
Since I found it peculiar my cat caught it, after such an intense dark night of the soul, and when I had never seen a dragonfly here before, ever.
I think the spiritual meaning of the dragonfly must have been even more easy to Google than its biological characteristics, because it popped up immediately;

“In almost every part of the world, the Dragonfly symbolizes change, transformation, adaptability, and self-realization.

The change that is often referred to has its source in mental and emotional maturity and understanding the deeper meaning of life.”

The Plague | Time Capsule

What inspired me Friday 20 August 2021 

The Plague

I went to the final days of the exhibition The Plague at our local museum.
And it was so timely.

It was very impressive to see, and realize, the tremendous suffering the plague has caused to all our ancestors, who have been living with the plague which came in waves from before BC  (Asia and Greece) until the 19th century, when a cure was found and all areas with access to medicine have been able to neutralize it.

wiki : The Plague 

It put a welcome perspective to our current pandemic, and to see that “we’ve had worse”.
Although a word of caution;
Just like with the aids epidemic in Africa, pandemics and how badly they are felt is often so closely related to wealth.
If good food is scarce, that is always the most important problem.

But it is not only about feeling gratitude that Covid itself is less deadly, and that we in The Netherlands do not have that level of poverty medieval Europe had;
It’s also a sense of being happy we know so much more about hygiene now.

In African cultures and also in Jewish culture, hygiene has been at a much higher plane, throughout history. And this has provided protection. 
But Medieval Europe had an oppressive, unnatural, ruling style, that kept the church in power and that demonized other knowledge such as natural medicine.
You could be burned at the stake for that.

Medieval Europe was a place devoid of natural, local wisdom, which could have provided hygiene and rules of living, that would have been able to limit the impact.
Just like the African and Jewish cultures had, and have, their wisdom, protecting them.
While we lived, I think, in an absolute hellhole.

236384398_4484768614878129_8721321563438532848_nWhen the Renaissance came, which had less to do with enlightenment and was more like Middle-Ages The Sequel, the church was ultimately thrown out, but not before they successfully executed their most ruthless killing spree of witches.
But ultimately, yes, science did take over.

During this pandemic we now look to modern medicine, with the same devotion as we once did to the church.
We make them all powerful, and typing this I do wonder what we’d have in place if the  local wisdom had been able to develop here too.

Instead of having it wiped out, and then almost artificially replaced by science.

After the exhibition I went to this hall with the oldest remains of civilization.
On the photo you see a horse and a horseman, objects from the Batavi, who lived from 50 BC to 300 AD.
These object where found in Nijmegen, where the Batavi largely co-existed with the Romans.

I wonder how life in 2021 would have looked, if the Batavi had had a say in how we live today.
Instead of basically, having replaced one church for another.

This is the first time capsule dedicated to one topic, and I really liked that, since it allowed me to dig in a little deeper.

The Beastie Boys and Madonna mid 80s

The Beastie Boys and Madonna mid 80s

Things that inspired me
Monday 16 August to Thursday 19 August

2021/ 1996 (1996 performance project)

1. Madonna and the Beastie Boys with water pistols

Just a picture I saw on Twitter, that I loved! 
I collected it, because I had just wasted precious time and email correspondence on not just one, but two companies offering to type me, and then giving health advice, in particular for sleeping better.
And I had actually bought that.

I ended up hating both of them, and not finding them any good in typing me, at least not in this phase of my life when I don’t even know how it is possible that I never seem to sleep through the night anymore.
I unsubscribed from both of them, and all trial subscriptions have been revoked.

Then I saw the picture of Madonna and the Beastie Boys, and remembered that for me the answer is always to have more fun, sex and laughter in my life.
Always.
Regardless what the problem is.

I should pick up my Sexual Odyssey!
Have not thought about that project for weeks.

And I bet writing about that first thing AM, will also have me up and running in the morning in no-time.

2. Creatives get to email first!

Related to the subject of rhythm, was a conversation I had with my creativity coach Sara,
You can check out her Academy here. ]
about how I need to do what HAS to get done, first, including email, before I can start my creative work.
I cannot hold off the worldly obligations and put creativity first, even when ideally I do think that is the correct order. 

And another aspect was that I often have many tabs open, while I write or do other “deep work”. When technically, “deep work” suggests you focus.
But in my opinion, I can focus better if I do a bit of wandering around.
Like staring out of the window.

Social media are windows on the world.
They do not feel like I m having a tea party while I m trying to write.

She explained that for most people deep work is difficult;
But that for creatives it’s their home, their default. 
So the temptation for us to lose ourselves on social media, is not there.
It’s way more tempting to retreat back into our creative world.

For me this concluded into the following shocking insight;
I do not have to wall off the world to concentrate.
And the fact that I don’t want to start deep work until the things in the world are taken care of, actually indicates the opposite.

I have to wall off my deep work, to be in the world.

Since late 2016, I ve followed the business coach Katrina Ruth
She’s my number one recommendation to build soul-based business.

I received her new offer for a 30 Day Sales Course, I signed up.
If she speaks to you
(you can check her Facebook incl free  blogposts and free live trainings here),
then you are invited to sign up too:
https://thekatrinaruthshow.com/7figuresales/ 
The deep discount ends in a few days, but the link of the program will stay up.

Wrap Up

I think those three are it for today!

I had more inspiration and insights, but I want to keep these posts a bit manageable in how long they turn out.

This blog, Time Capsules, is a week old.
I m writing less often than I thought I would, but these time capsules do the trick of making sure my inspiration gets consolidated.
That I don’t lose it.

And the way I do that is by passing it on to you.
Hopefully you like it! 
Today’s was very coaching-oriented, but the way I see it the larger topics of art/ film/ and business, will all have their place here.

And I’ll find us some extra water pistols and Madonna, before it gets too heavy!

Next episode of Time Capsules

I have two inspiring days ahead of me, and expect the next episode of Time Capsules to be written Sunday morning.

Free Guy & Free Me | Time Capsule

Click photo to see the new 2021 trailer, after this 2020 movie was pushed forward, because of Covid

Click photo to see the new 2021 trailer, after this 2020 movie was pushed forward, because of Covid

Things that influenced me this weekend, 14 and 15 August
2021/ 1996 (1996 performance project)

1. Free Guy, movie

Free Guy is a Disney movie about Guy, a non-playable character (an extra, an unimportant character) in a video game.
He has come to live and starts thinking for himself because the source of the game is a (stolen) code that allows Artificial Intelligence to develop.

This stolen source code is designed by two young programmers.
In the real world they’re Millie, who becomes a Trinity-like (Trinity from the Matrix movies)-Molotov Girl when she enters the game;
And her male design partner Keys, who now works for customer service within the company that stole their code.
These two are the unacknowledged brains and heart, of the popular game Free City, and they try to retrieve evidence that their work was stolen.

The character Guy, who has been programmed by Keys to look out for and dream of, a girl who behaves just like Millie does, becomes their ally when he “awakens” in the game, and becomes the first non-playable character to start taking part of the game.

Although I do not game, and did not have any references from that area (although I heard the famous gamers of the film, were in fact cameos of actual famous gamers!) Free Guy was a wonderfully warm and entertaining movie.
Even for me ;)

2. My Daily Schedule

Where the past two weeks were spent, already feeling way more grounded, because I had managed to draw up a map of who I am – how the different personas and parts of me go together;
This weekend I managed to draw up a map of the sequence, priorities, of what it is I actually do or “should be” doing, if I want to focus on building my business.
“Should be” has quotation marks because I know myself well enough to know, that for me making something a should is the quickest way to never do it again.
Only when I have full freedom, can anything of value be created.
So these shoulds are based on the natural order I do things, with only minor adaptations.

An example of such a minor adaptation to what comes naturally to me:
To no longer share things when I see them, or send things out when I have them ready, but to batch up all online/interactive tasks to once a day, and to stay offline the rest of the day.

I m not including the schedule/drawing here, because it’s rather complicated and I think it deserves a little more context and explanation before you should invest your time in it.

But I wrote a blogpost, a letter to my creativity coach Sara, that includes the schedule, as well as guide to what it means.
This is the blogpost with the schedule:
Three Stars Are Born 

Next episode of Time Capsules

I started this new blog Time Capsules,  about the things that inspire me, right before the weekend.
So naturally there was both more inspiration as well as more time to write.

This is the first workweek and I don’t know how it will pan out, either on the inspiration front or how much time there is to write.
I have a call with my creativity coach, so that’s something to look out for, and that will very likely make it to the next Time Capsule.

But I expect to be back end of the week at the latest.

“Allemoal Inne” + 2 other things from Lauren Harteveld’s Mother | Time Capsule

Things that influenced me yesterday Friday August 13
2021/ 1996 (1996 performance project)

credit photo (filename) Bundesarchiv_Bild_183-32292-0001,_Brachhaben,_Einzelbauer

My most important inspiration today came from being with my mother.
After creating the map of who I am, which I drew for my creativity coach*, and rekindling or maybe finally falling properly in love with the life and work of Andy Warhol,
our bond has become even stronger.
Over the past few days, I frequently sent her emails with Aha moments.

My mother and father both took care of my cultural education, but I m positive she was the one who was responsible for the parental gift of Andy Warhol’s Diaries and a book box with two books about cats.

I found the diaries on our local site, where I looked them up out of curiosity and regret because I do not have them anymore.
Art books were definitely the bulkiest of all, and it was a category I cleared somewhere between 2005-2010, with the exception of a Keith Haring biography.

I went on our local ebay to see if the Warhol Diaries were on it, and saw my edition had unmistakably been a first edition.

I saw this book (1988-1993) auctioned for even more than the diaries, €125 dollar.

When Googling the cat book for a picture I noticed this book (1988-1993) had become even more of a collector’s item than the diaries. They ve auctioned for €125

The book with the two cats, were partially drawn by “Andy Warhol’s Mother”.
Not only did I remember that, from when I had them, but I had also seen this in a documentary I had watched about Andy Warhol.

Andy Warhol was artistically encouraged by his mother, and she even moved in with him when he was already a successful artist in New York.
Many say this was a good thing, because she was definitely more skilled at taking care of him than he was, and the two loved spending time together.
When she lived with him, she would work for him occasionally, and that’s how she ended up drawing the cats for him.
In the photo with this blogpost you can see her name on the cover as “Andy Warhol’s Mother”.

My mother told me about her resolution to make a collage of the time we’re living in, and her first ideas about what it was she wanted to capture.
She referred to her collage of 25 years ago, and I asked if I could see that.

And although I m sure she had shown it to me, somewhere in the past two years as well, it was as if I saw it with fresh eyes.
And I couldn’t believe what had happened!

Because I ve been on a diary writing project, where I describe my life as if it’s taking place 25 years ago*.
In the first line of this post you can see a link to this project where it is now 1996.

So I live in 2021, but for my art or performance, mindset, I try to live in 1996 as often as I think about it.
Which is, I admit, not that often.
And yet this project which started in 2019 (1994) still intrigues me, I write in the diary two times a month on average, and it is currently my longest running project.

Having my mother make a visual time frame exactly of those years, was stunning.
You can see photos I took from my mother’s 1995 1996 project in this Tweet or this Facebook post.

My mother also shared some memories of my father.

In the 50s maybe even 60s, boys wore short pants because the knees of longer pants would tear, need constant mending, would be too costly for the large families.
The moment when, as a boy, you received your first pair of long pants, were almost an initiation ritual.
The sign you were no longer a child.

Which probably explained why my father never wore short pants, afterwards. Regardless of how hard my mother tried to persuade him.
But in what would unexpectedly be his last summer, he tried one of the pants she had made for him, from a set of long pants which she had cut off.
Presumably because the knees were torn, I guess!

But my father tried them on, after having refused for years and years, and he absolutely loved them. He wouldn’t part with them for the rest of summer.

And my mother also told me how she was involved in the division of the heritage, from his family. Which they handled with an in-family auction.
My mother was the auction master, but she also bought some things for herself that no one wanted.
One was a zinc seed tray.

My mother’s interests are very similar to mine, a combination of diary writing or personal history, local history, and international art.
Her picks on the family auction of my father’s family were different to what the direct family wanted.
So she bought different things.

She even started writing a script for a series for Dutch television, in collaboration with my uncle who did not buy anything on the auction itself, but who was the one who researched our genealogy and who has written about our family history.

The title of this series would have been “Allemoal Inne”, which means “One for each”, and it referred to the hayforks, which had to be divided too.
But because haymaking had been an activity that had always involved multiple people, there had been ample hayforks.
So they did not have to be auctioned, there was one for each.

“Allemoal inne.”

My time capsules are a written out collection of things that I have come into contact with, and that will influence my art.

The project is Inspired by Warhol, who created one time capsule (box) a month, collecting physical objects.

Time Capsules is a stand-alone project.
