Creativity Feeds The Soul

What will we do without creativity?

From the wise words of Shakti Gawain “Creative power has to filter through our beliefs, attitudes, emotions, and habits. The more negative and constricted our beliefs and patterns are, the more they block the creative energy. Most people hope that by ignoring negativity, it will go away, but the reverse is actually true. Through recognizing, acknowledging, and experiencing it, the blocked energy can be released. You are then free to replace it with positive beliefs and attitudes.”

”Creativity of all kinds focuses your mind, engages your imagination, and feeds your soul,” says Sue Patton Thoele. ”Being creative can also facilitate understanding and encourage healing. Creativity is mindfulness in motion–intuitive, artistic motion. Creative moments and activities give you a boost and help you feel energized and good about yourself. ”

Creative writing isn’t simply an “event.” It’s the outward manifestation of thoughts and ideas we internally generate and possess.

Creativity begins with the individual himself, that is, with the self-making of the personality

Writing begins there, too.

How much time have you spent developing your creative self– not accessing it, but deliberately fashioning, moulding, shaping, sculpting, and finely chiselling your identity as a creative individual?

This requires a significant amount of internal work; not such simple activities as taking yourself on artist dates or writing morning pages, or whatever you do to get in the mood, but a conscious determination to be a writer with something to say.

“Nobody is right. There is no such a thing as complete right and completely wrong, completely black, complete white,” said Tennessee Williams. “We are all in the same boat and really the boat is the world, you might even say it’s the universe. All creation is the boat, not just one nation, not just one ideology, not just one system. Everything is in flux; everything is in the process of creation. The world is incomplete; it’s like an unfinished poem. Maybe the poem will suddenly turn into a limerick, or maybe it will turn into an epic poem. But it’s for all of us to try to complete this poem. And the way to complete it is through understanding and patience and tolerance among ourselves.”

If you are guilty of spending more time talking about your writing, than actually sitting down and putting words to paper; or if you find it difficult to start writing, not sure what medium to write for, or what to write, this motivational and inspirational introspective odyssey will empower you with the right skills.
