On Creativity

Heart.Door (2)

Thought I’ll share with you some of my own thoughts on creativity:

I think the more creativity we can put into our lives, the more of ourselves that we share.  It means getting out of the box the lessons of past experience can put us in.  It’s living through love rather than our often default position of habits or fear – which means taking risks and entering the unknown.  Also to be truly creative, you have to get rid of those nasty “expectations” and be nice to yourself!

Having space or time to allow creativity to come out without forcing it is essential.  Here is a quote from Joseph Campbell:

“To have a sacred place is an absolute necessity for anybody today. You must have a room or a certain hour of the day or so, where you do not know who your friends are, you don’t know what you owe anybody or what they owe you. This is a place where you can simply experience and bring forth what you are and what you might be.”

What does creativity mean to you?
