Reflective Writing and the Experience of Transcending
All writing, of course, comes from consciousness. Any ideas, thoughts, or feelings we have spring from our own consciousness. Mind is the entity that we generally give credit to for our ideas, mind being considered some construct of the human brain that does our thinking for us. This perception of how we write leaves out, to some extent, the feeling level as well as the role that memory plays in our process of writing. The cognitive sciences can map certain stages of the thinking or writing process for us but don’t yet provide the whole picture.

How Writing and Transcending Differ
Writing is an avenue for expressing our creativity, our imagination, even our logic. It does not, however, by itself, create enlightenment. To create enlightenment, an individual must be able to transcend the thinking process, to go beyond the level of the intellect and experience pure consciousness, the state of Transcendental Consciousness. Writing, by its own nature, must remain on the level of the intellect if a person is to produce words on paper or on a screen.

Voice and Vantage Point
Voice: Developing one’s voice is critical for writers if each of us wishes to standout as unique in a galaxy of other writers. But voice is an aspect of writing that is formed from many different elements—tone, style, and vantage point, to name a few. Vantage point is, arguably, the most impactful as it also helps shape tone and style.

The Hidden Structure of Writing
The word structure can evoke images of a linear arrangement of ideas, even a certain logical rigidity. Structure, however, can also be flowing and organic. The mind creates its own connections and provides its own logic if we allow our thoughts to flow and are sensitive to the relationships that emerge. Reflective writing allows us time to recognize, explore, and play with structure in our writing.
