Creativity is a spiritual process that as humans we sometimes overlook and underrate because we are not normally aware that we are constantly creating. We don’t see ourselves as artists …… or creators. Yet, we are constantly creating.
Art is the invisible within …… and the expressions of art are the manifestations. Art is the Power and Inner Being behind the creative process …….behind the manifestation of creation of works of art, rather than the works of art themselves. And that creative process is part of our life everyday.
It is the waking up and beginning your daily life of thoughts, motivations, and behaviors. You are creating within every moment of your day. Actually it is more accurate to say we are co-creators because …… there is nothing we can do without the Source, Our Father, the Eternal.
You are making choices and creating your reality …… with your thoughts, attitudes and behaviors. And this is art ….. the creative process.
Your attitudes and emotions motivate your thoughts ….. and you behave, take actions accordingly. Your actions create an effect. Everything is connected in mind, past memories and emotions, possible futures and most importantly ….. what is happening right now.
The Conscious Artist
A person conscious of being a creative artist …… loves the process of creating ….. and aware of what motives them in the present moment. Now some may call this spiritual awareness or even religious devotion ….. and it is in a way, because …… we are becoming conscious of the Divine within ourselves.
When we toast a piece of bread, paste a picture in a memory book or call a friend ….. we are being the artist …… because we are in the creative process. And we can choose to be conscious of it ….. love it ….. and create beauty because of love within ….. or slide along unconscious of our motivations or what, how we are creating.
We often create unconsciously with subconscious traits rooted in fear and ignorance, like anxiety, desire and pride. And we can be totally unaware of how such emotions motivate our thoughts and behaviors ….. and we end up creating problems/challenges for ourselves.
This inner creative quality is something to cherish and nourish
We usually dismiss and forget our creative process all together in our every day life. Yet, when we become conscious of being motivated by love and other qualities of love like ….. hope, appreciation, consideration, and compassion ….. then we are in the process of creating reality with these motivations …… and we attract more of the same …..
Then art is not a thing of beauty ….. art is beauty. Art is the inner creative cause within you …… the honoring of love and beauty. In this respect, art and our spiritual journey are one and the same.
