How often do we feel frustrated by our lack of abilities or feel stuck not able to create? At some point to we start to wonder whether we are creative at all? If we only knew how important creativity is all around us, we would accept this powerful part of ourselves without such doubt.
We have been discussing the Judeo-Christian creation story and learning how the concepts of each day teach us about creativity. Perhaps this would be an interesting study for other creation stories. If one comes to mind, please share it with me so we can ponder new ideas together. As this creation story goes, God separates the oceans from the dry land and vegetates the earth by planting seeds of all kinds revealing a living, breathing, life sustaining earth.
We only need to spend time in nature to notice this process of cyclic creation at work at all times. That tells us that it is a true principle that we too only need to learn how to tap into. We have done it many times probably without noticing. Perhaps living within so many walls separates us from our true nature. So when feeling a little stuck in the creative process going out for some time outdoors can be a powerful way to see the flow all around us. Children are good examples of people who have not yet put up blocks to this process. They fall into creation naturally and many times fully.
Maybe this is a good time to recap. Monday we learned to use our imagination along with our abilities to plan and execute our dreams and goals. Tuesday we found that we are interconnected with our divine source. Today we found that we have not been left without example, but have are in the middle of creativity in constant motion. This is easy to see in the soil, the water, the plants, and the trees. Maybe this is time for me to ask you a question. When you have noticed this in your life what feelings have come? I ask this because for me, the feelings have been a sense of wonder, of humility, and of invigoration. Pride, perfection, and stubbornness (creativity blockers) have fallen away.
So with this natural cycle of creation around us at work at all times is it not easy to see that we too are children of a planet, a system that creates? Even ourselves nature in motion?
