Creativity does not belong to any individual.
Creativity comes from the inner source of our vast potential — which is unlimited, and
available to everybody. This source is accessed when the mind is least active. The
more active the mind, the less this source is available. This is because the mind usually
focuses on the past and the future. Creativity needs to be… creative, new, fresh, unique.
We all have that in us.
In the process of passing through the creator, the artist, creativity takes on the unique
qualities of the person who is accessing that source. If a person requests creativity from
the source in a certain way, that is the way it will appear. If it is requested through the
canvas and the person is skilled, and empty, the source will flow through the painter to
In the process of flowing through it will take on the unique qualities of the painter, their
skill, their experience, their uniqueness. Likewise with the musician , the dancer . To the
artist who becomes empty, with this request and emptiness, the source takes over. The
music becomes the musician and the Musician the music. The dancing becomes the
dancer and the dancer the dancing. Emptiness and fullness simultaneously.
After the emptiness comes the ecstasy, the deep sense of fulfillment. The true artist
will not claim the result. He or she did not do it. It did them. If somebody says, ‘This is a
beautiful painting, this was a wonderful performance,’ the artist may accept the
acknowledgement, but will not presume to own it.
Living Life IS Creativity.
Creativity is not just in the arts. It is in every day life, moment to moment. Disconnecting from the mind and being in the moment, unconditional creativity flows — a response
to each moment, just as it is. Then creativity is in each moment. It is a response. The
mother with the child, the lover with their partner, the gardener with the garden, the
veterinarian with the animals. In true creativity there is no separation from the source.
The creator and the created are one.
The flowering of this is bliss, ecstasy, the feeling of being infinitely blessed. The source is
constantly attempting to flow through us and take us to our maximum potential in each
moment. To bring us to the situation we need to experience to move to our next level of
potential. When this process is realized, fear disappears and with it anger, resentment and
judgement! And as these disappear, what is left is love.
