C is for Creation
“The birds I heard today, which, fortunately, did not come within the scope of my science, sang as freshly as if it had been the first morning of creation.”
Henry David Thoreau
We are made in the image of God. It is not the other way around. This means that God is not a human-looking older gentleman sitting on the clouds, with a long Gandalf wizard- beard, staring down with contempt and judging us all from the heavens.
It does however mean that, as the book says, we are made in the image of the creat-or therefore, within everyone’s image lies creat-ivity.
You see, humans are by nature, already creative. When our creativity lays dormant it tends to atrophy.
It’s only a matter of educating ourselves to remember what we have forgotten. The word educate comes from the Latin Educo which means; to educe, to bring up or to develop, to draw up and lead out.
We all have something inside of us longing to be birthed into creation, we just need to jump on the path of searching for it.
Can’t find your creativity?
Start looking for your creative genius in new areas because if you don’t know what it already is , it just means you haven’t found it yet, and therefore you can’t keep looking it in the same places.
Learn new things, view new things, feel and experience new things. You will quickly discover what you like and don’t like. In doing so you will start heading down the path of your true destiny.
There are so many areas that you can focus your attention on that it simply isn’t possible to learn and experience all of them.
Explore, dream and decide what that thing is you want out of life. Figure out where the evidence of how to do that thing is because someone has already failed and succeeded at that thing.
The examples you find are the stories that you need, they will show you what to do and what not to do in order to bring you towards your dharma.
