Does creativity mean artistic?
Creativity is not just confined to art
Creativity is not something that is confined to art, but there is always artistry involved in the process of creating something.
Whether we know it or not, we are always creating; creating or destroying.
We create the world around us — this world conforms to what and how we think. Thought is creative; creative or destructive.
Am I creative?
I have never been artistic, how could I be creative?
Everyone is creative, everyone is constantly creating, the question is are you consciously creating?
Creativity is not something we do, it is something we are! It is our birthright. But are we consciously accessing our creative storehouse.
What is does it mean to consciously create?
‘Conscious creating’ is about being aware — aware of our inner creative storehouse, that vast power that dwells within us that needs to express itself.
You are the creator of your own life and how you view all the circumstances within it.
You are the director, the musician and the music, the player and the played.
Creating great lives
Great lives don’t just happen — they are worked at every day; they start with a shared vision and are built step by step.
Dreaming is one thing, pursuing that dream is quite another …
We can keep things in the realm of our imagination, or we can do something about it. We can imagine ourselves being or doing this or that, but setting about making this or that happen takes effort, it takes planning, it takes daring.
Balance your life/work
What is balance but functioning in perfect harmony?
There is much said these days of work/life balance, balancing the aspects of life and work.
I, however, come from the view that in order to achieve balance we need to harmonise all aspects of life, which includes work.
It is not either work or life – it is all life; everything is life and work is only a component of our life.
Success or fulfillment
A promise is a cloud; fulfillment is rain – Arabian Proverb
Success vs. fulfillment
Success is an achievement of some objective, of something desired, planned, or attempted.
Fulfillment, on the other hand, is the completing of something, something long worked at. It brings a feeling of consummation and a sense of accomplishment, of deep satisfaction, of realising your capacities of a sort.
Creativeness is the basis of evolution.
Each of us has the right to the improvement in our field of endeavour.
Each task can be improved.
In the creativeness of the improvement is the joy of the work … the work of creating, you being the creator.
Create create create
We create all the time …
It is now time to set yourself free to create to your heart’s desire.
By this I mean, ‘What is it that your heart truly desires?’
It is not usually to acquire things. The heart yearns to express, be it love or an expression that through love we are creating something.
Wholeness and transformation
Transform your life
Transformation towards wholeness is not just a form of self-improvement (which often promises more of the same thing: more energy, more concentration, more relaxation or where we just get rid of something).
Rather, it is a process of invoking change that will draw the many facets of ourselves into greater and greater spheres of wholeness.
