Let Creativity Create YOU

"You become more divine as you become more creative. All the religions of the world have said God is the creator. I don't know whether he is the creator or not, but one thing I know: the more creative you become, the more godly you become. When your creativity comes to a climax, when your whole life becomes creative, you live in God" - Osho

Have you ever tried to write and nothing comes? Have you ever stared at a blank canvas not knowing where to begin? I mean, how do you capture the symphony of sunset colors reflected on the mountainside? How do you allow the wisdom of creativity to move through you so that the sunset speaks, so that the mountainside writes, so that the colors of the sun carry the pen?

Try allowing anything to move through you. Wherever you are, whatever your circumstances, no matter how small or insignificant you think your inner experience is, write everything out as though your thoughts, your feelings, your moods were those precious sunset colors. Let all your inner experiences have their expression. Write them out to create space inside. Once the inner channels are open, once you've given up your doubts, fears, and pains to the page, you will expand, you will grow as big as the sky, as infinite as the cosmos.

Then, the colors can speak, then the mountainside can become motion within, then the sunset can unfold inside you and from there, from that universe inside you, the words, the creative river, will flow.

Yet, this is just the beginning. To write out a nice poem, to craft a beautiful memoir, to create a novel of love or beauty is just the start to a precious relationship. The universe inside you, that inner cosmos that contains the colors of the sun, the mountainside, and the sunset itself, will indeed create you. From writing a poem through you, the universe writes poetry as you. Your life - breaking apart, splitting open, and blossoming - is the pure expression of the creative process. Are you open to it? Are you holding on to the shore? Right here and now, the universe is creating a new future, a new you. Are you open to receive Her wisdom? Are you ready to let go and receive?

This week, I invite you - create for one hour or even ½ a day. Get empty, grow, and let the river of the cosmos widen her banks inside you.
