Kanye West has shared excerpts from his upcoming philosophy book on Twitter.

The 40-year-old rapper recently reactivated his account on the micro-blogging website almost a year after taking it down, and he has now used the platform to post a series of deep and motivational tweets taken from the philosophy book he claimed to be writing in an interview published last week.

He wrote: ''when you first wake up don't hop right on the phone or the internet or even speak to anyone for even up to an hour if possible. Just be still and enjoy your own imagination. It's better than any movie.

''You have the best ideas. Other people's opinions are usually more distractive than informative. Follow your own vision. base your actions on love. Do things you love and if you don't absolutely love something stop doing it as soon as you can.

''Don't follow crowds. Follow the innate feelings inside of you. Do what you feel not what you think. Thoughts have been placed in our heads to make everyone assimilate. Follow what you feel.

''I don't believe in the concept of an enemy. We have been conditioned to always be in competition. Stop looking for something to beat and just be. You don't have to do all the work. Once you start moving in love the universe will assist you.

''You will be a drop of water with the ocean as your army. If you move out of fear than your on your own. Then it's just you and the money and the countless people you have to lie to and manipulate to build a man made path that will never lead to true happiness. (sic)''

The 'Heartless' hitmaker then revealed the content of his tweets would be featured in his book, which he said he will work on when he ''feels it''.

He continued: ''oh by the way this is my book that I'm writing in real time. No publisher or publicist will tell me what to put where or how many pages to write. This is not a financial opportunity this is an innate need to be expressive.

''I will work on this ''book'' when I feel it. When We sit still in the mornings We get hit with so many ideas and so many things We want to express. When I read this tweet to myself I didn't like how much I used the word I so I changed the I's to We's. (sic)''

Kanye shared several other inspirational tweets moments after confirming his plan to release a philosophy book, in which he urged his fans to live ''in the moment''.

He wrote: ''Be here now. Be in the moment. The now is the greatest moment of our lives and it just keeps getting better. The bad parts the boring parts the parts with high anxiety. Embrace every moment for its greatness. This is life. This is the greatest movie we will ever see.

''There's love stories. Pain happiness. It's 3 dementional. There's taste touch sound. It's the most entertaining for of entertainment. Just being. We believe time is a man made construct. Actually time and money are both man made currency. Because you can spend them both.

''too much emphasis is put on originality. Feel free to take ideas and update them at your will all great artist take and update.

''let's be less concerned with ownership of ideas. It is important that ideas see the light of day even if you don't get the credit for them. Let's be less concerned with credit awards and external validation. (sic)''
