Codes for love map path to eternity

Often placed between limitations created by notions of lack of time, impossibility and other stereotypes, we forget to be ourselves and follow our creativity. Departure from the unknown creates a sense of insecurity that quickly brings us back to established paths. Few dare to follow the call of their souls and manage to break away from the matrix and discover true inspiration.

Three Bulgarians met "accidentally" at a personal development seminar of the Canadian Erickson College, which unlocked their creative skills and they decided to follow this path. Without suspecting what life had prepared for them, Delyan Zahariev, Neda Zareva and Anna Ivanova came together in a creative trio. And while working in a team, they decided to write a novel together, which they later called "Codes for Love and Eternity".

The book is the result of a triple co-authorship, in which each author complements the writer before them. The necessary condition for the bond between the three writers has been the feeling of elation, joy and enthusiasm, encoded in the DNA – the initial letters of their names. The creative process started with "D" – Delyan, who set the beginning, followed by "N" - Neda and "A" - Anna, who passed the ball back to Delyan.

"We started writing three parallel but different stories, following this DNA chain. In that order, we developed three different stories, until we realized the different connections between them. Then the idea to intertwine them like a DNA sequence emerged and the whole novel turned out like this - with many links and codes. This shared creativity, which was a valuable discovery for the three of us, has shown us how important it is to trust and love each other. After all, love is the most important thing in this life," Delyan Zahariev says.

In the sense of reciprocity and sharing, all three authors find inspiration in jointly created texts. In the book love transcends time and space between different civilizations and cultures. The reader goes to Bulgaria, ancient Egypt and Bhutan:

"In this process, we were not two women and a man, but a group of creative people,” Neda continues. “The strong connection between us came from the fact that we could integrate into each other’s worldview and complement each other... It turned out to be something like organizing spontaneity, but without disturbing the balance, and based on the events that unfolded around our characters, we give examples of how one can carry something within themselves without realizing it. Some insights, however, could make them change their destiny."

In the process of writing, all three authors discovered the satisfaction of co-authorship, which has been valuable for their development as individuals and creators.

"Codes are a manifestation of the way each of us is a creator," Anna says. "DNA - the code in every person is the biological manifestation of creative work. Interestingly, our book has emerged at a time when the world is talking about innovation and about how humanity needs people to find concrete solutions, but together, not alone. In this sense, we show that perhaps collective creativity is the right way. It is not easy, but it is extremely inspiring and satisfying."

As a continuation of their project, Delyan, Neda and Anna are considering revealing the secrets of joint creativity to other enthusiasts, ready to accept the challenge.
