Source, spirit, or what you prefer calling the Creator, gave humanity the gift of creativity. We were all born with the gift of creativity. Creativity is a seed planted within us, human beings, and it is within our personal will, and power, to make use of that creativity in beneficial ways… it takes a lifetime for most humans to tap into their personal creativity, and to become the best version of themselves. It is also up to ourselves to discover creativity within us, and to be capable of transforming that creativity into beauty… Creativity will never cease existing, it just changes and emerges in countless ways, expressed by human beings from all areas of life.
Every day, creation and creativity lives in us. It is all around us, like love, beauty, fantasy, imagination… everywhere we go, wherever you go, you will discover creativity… in architecture, in nature, in design, in art, in construction, in poetry, in theater, in literature, in cooking, in business, in marketing, in innovation, in music, in science, in research…creativity is the ability of transforming vision into reality through inspiration, effort, and hard work…in essence, just remember to create beauty around you, but never be afraid of being eccentric, or different, because finding your unique style and your unique way of expression is part of the footprint that you leave, and the impression you make in people´s minds…
It may take a lifetime to be capable of pressing and squeezing the creative juice out of your soul, but being aesthetic and creative in a unique way is part of your journey upon Earth. Remember to be creative in a way that benefits, helps, inspires, and/or develops both yourself and people around you – after all, we all love to be encouraged, and we love to sense creative passion both in ourselves and in others. So yes, dare to be creative, dare to be yourself, dare to be passionate, dare to be different, dare to be brave! Dare to dream, dare to learn, dare to explore, dare to discover, both within yourself, within the depths of your soul, and in other souls…
Never cease to admire all the creativity around you… it is a gift from Spirit, and from the Universe, a gift of senses that has been given to us all… even those who lack a certain sense, will have a heightened capability of sensing in other ways… we all have senses, and the more use we make of a special sense in our everyday lives, the more a certain sense will be strengthened. If you, for some reason, lack a specific sense, like the capability of seeing, or hearing, you will certainly have a heightened sense of feeling, or maybe of tasting…
Sometimes, your creativity won´t be recognized until after your life upon Earth has come to an end… nevertheless, the art of creation will continue living through your soul, in people´s minds… like many great artists, who already passed and stepped into another dimension, yet whose life work still lives in peoples´s minds, since they made a difference and left a footprint in people´s hearts…
Never be afraid of transforming your fears into brave and courageous actions, your anxiety into a form of creative art, or your doubts into a (personal) reality. Being truly creative is sometimes an action of being a trendsetter, eccentric, different… like Salvador Dali, perhaps the greatest surrealist of all times… Even Salvador Dali had his critics, and his opponents, yet, he never gave up – he had a vision, despite of probable opponents… We cannot all be salvador dali´s, yet, we are, and we can be, our unique selves, dreaming and daring, giving a s* about what others think about us, creating beauty and making a difference in our lives, perhaps also for some, or for many, people around us… because true creators aim to make a difference through some act of beauty expressed to serve and to help society to evolve in a way that benefits us all…
With these words about creativity, I would humbly like to wish you all a creative Christmas, and a creative year 2017. May all your creativity flourish into something beautiful in your personal lives, and in the lives of people around you. May Creator & Spirit bless you. A humble thank you for reading… XOXO.
