Creativity is a highfalutin word for the work I have to do between now and Tuesday.
Everybody born comes from the Creator trailing wisps of glory. We come from the Creator with creativity. I think that each one of us is born with creativity.
I cringe when someone tells me “I don’t have a creative bone in my body.” If you weren’t creative, you would have no bones… you’d be dead.
Do whatever brings you to life, then. Follow your own fascinations, obsessions, and compulsions. Trust them. Create whatever causes a revolution in your heart.
The universe buries strange jewels deep within us all, and then stands back to see if we can find them.
Be the weirdo who dares to enjoy.
You can measure your worth by your dedication to your path, not by your successes or failures.
So this, I believe, is the central question upon which all creative living hinges: Do you have the courage to bring forth the treasures that are hidden within you?
A creative life is an amplified life. It’s a bigger life, a happier life, an expanded life, and a hell of a lot more interesting life. Living in this manner—continually and stubbornly bringing forth the jewels that are hidden within you—is a fine art, in and of itself.
Anyhow, the older I get, the less impressed I become with originality. These days, I’m far more moved by authenticity. Attempts at originality can often feel forced and precious, but authenticity has quiet resonance that never fails to stir me.
Done is better than good.
If you’re alive, you’re a creative person.
We express our individuality from the inside out.
Children naturally grab what’s in their environment and run with it! They do what the like with no thought of what others will think of it.
Expression begins immediately at birth with the simple act of crying,
Creating a mandala allows you to express with abandon. No kidding.
The mandala is a simple but extremely powerful symbol of creativity, expansion and life, a circle in a square (that you get all creative with)
Your inherent creativity needs to expand. If you’re not creating you’re dying, It’s that simple.
Creation is freaking amazing, and I am part of it!
IF YOU ARE ALIVE, YOU ARE CREATIVE.
There is no truth to the statement “I don’t have a creative bone in my body.” If you think that then the jokes on you — you wouldn’t HAVE a bone in your body, you wouldn’t HAVE A BODY.
EVERY LIVING BEING and every “thing” began with an elegant act of creation.
Creation is freaking amazing, and you are part of it! Every day. Every moment. Every thought. Every breath. Every interaction.
Sadly, many people think that if they can’t pick up a paintbrush and paint a masterpiece, they’re not creative. We don’t appreciate how simply being live requires creativity.
…creative entitlement simply means believing that you are allowed to be here, and that—merely by being here—you are allowed to have a voice and a vision of your own.
…there is no stopping the creative force that is within each and every one of us No stopping it. It is yearning to be expressed.
I fear we’ve lost our ability and drive to be spontaneously creative. We don’t have to be. We can sit around on our asses all day if we choose.
Your creativity is like a muscle, the more you use it the stronger it becomes.
You can actually become more creative by changing your mind-set. Anyone can innovate, if they choose to. Disruptive innovators do it by choice, not chance. Their everyday actions swap out an “I’m not creative” mind-set for an “I am creative” one. And then magical (not mystical) things unfold.
Expression is endless and unavoidable.
Let my soul smile through my heart and my heart smile through my eyes, that I may scatter rich smiles in sad hearts.
