Creativity: an encounter between a human being and divine/mysterious creative inspiration.
More commonly referred to as ‘flow’ or being ‘in the zone’, when I am hit by such divine creative inspiration, I am not quite myself. I lose track of time and space.
Because, you see, creativity takes me- it takes us– outside of ourselves, allowing us to engage more fully with life. It takes us into some raw, new, unexplored universe, albeit a universe which exists solely within ourselves…
And so, it is when I am being creative, that my life is amplified
I inhabit a bigger life,
a happier life,
an expanded life,
and a hell of a lot more interesting life,
contemplating the eternal mysteries of the universe,
In terms of; ‘How do I conjure up inspiration to write?’
I do so simply through being here-
‘Nature provides the seed; man provides the garden.’
I am inspired because I am alive,
Because, you see, creativity is what my soul was born for-
I am here to create.
My soul- your soul- our souls- they’ve been waiting for us to wake up to our own existence for years.
Because, we are all a product/a consequence of creation, by nature of our mere existence.
And so, I continue to seek inspiration from everyday life,
sharing my perspective of the world through creativity,
sharing what I know, what I’ve learnt, what I’ve seen and felt, so that you can understand how I see the world differently/ so that you can understand why
I’m still here…
I do what I do*…
*(Spoiler: I do it because;
If I am not actively creating something, then I am probably actively destroying something-
that something most likely being myself/my own peace of mind…
‘If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you.
If you don’t bring forth what is within you, what you don’t bring forth will destroy you’).
Evidently then, we all need to find something to do in our lives that is beyond the mundane and that takes us beyond our established and limiting roles in society.
We all need something that helps us to forget ourselves for a while-
to momentarily forget our age, gender, sexuality, socioeconomic background, duties, failures, etc.
We all need something that takes us so far out of ourselves that we forget about everything else/
that makes us forget to brood over our insecurities.
And, this is exactly what writing– creativity– does for me–
it helps me to forget
Get to be whoever I want to be.
Get to do whatever I want to do.
Get to pursue whatever fascinates me/
whatever brings me to life,
Get to just create whatever the hell I want to create,
sharing whatever I am driven to share,
having a wonderful time living out the existence that most brings me to life…
Do you get it now?
Do you understand now why I am on the side of creativity/
why I write?
I do it because;
you never know when an idea will be the idea that changes…
This is why I write.
