BLISS OF CREATIVITY

I cannot find enough words to explain the bliss of creativity. What a delight I cannot tell!

I cannot find enough words to explain the bliss of creativity. What a delight I cannot tell!

What is it that enables some people to get big creative breakthroughs while others only get big not-so-creative breakdowns - alternately blaming themselves, society, their boss, and their increasingly suspect astrological configurations? Is it that some people are "gifted"? Or are there other factors at work - factors that we (the people) have more control over than we might think?

While nobody can deny the fact that some people seem to be blessed with particular creative leanings, research has shown that anyone can increase their chances of coming up with new and original ideas - even have the much sought after AHA! experience - that is, if they would only immerse themselves in the little understood process of creation. It's the old Thomas Edison thing about "discovery being 99 percent perspiration and 1 percent inspiration". Time and again, the literature bears this out: great creative breakthroughs usually happen only after intense periods of struggle - even madness. It is sustained and focused effort towards a specific goal - not luck, not wishing, not caffeine - that ultimately prepares the ground for great creative insights.

Some people end up thinking it's just not in the cards for them. "Maybe I shouldn’t have even tried” they wonder when the breakthrough is nowhere to be found.

Alas, one forgets during their inevitable encounters with self-doubt, that the BIG AHA! is never far away. Indeed, it can happen at any time, any place, under any condition. Indeed, it's happened to more people than you could think of - famous people, infamous people, ordinary people. Anyone and everyone. As long as they stay in the game…

It all starts with imagination then just have to listen to that inner voice or whatever you call it a "hunch" or "intuition," but whatever you call it, know that paying attention to it is often the key to manifesting your vision or idea. Just don’t let the ego surpass. Believe me the outcome is an indescribable satisfaction.

According to George Bernard Shaw creativity is “Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will”.

Until next week keep cool and healthy!
