Creativity, the Art of Self-Expression
One of the greatest feelings is to express yourself through the art of creation. For it’s in the act of creating that allows for us to lose ourselves in the moment and be completely present with all that is.
For actors, it’s getting into that character and becoming that character. For musicians, it’s composing something that loses yourself in the music. For a painter or designer, it’s creating a work of art that has so many meanings within that you can lose yourself for days. For a writer, it’s expressing thoughts from a never ending imagination through words. For a dancer, it’s in the art of movement and so on.
When you’re in the act of creating you become so involved, so focused, that all excessive thinking comes to a halt as the mind embraces stillness. It’s in this silence that we connect to the very depths of our being. Most of the time we don’t even know this happens as we completely lose ourself in the moment, in our imagination.
None of us will ever accomplish anything excellent or commanding except when he listens to this whisper which is heard by him alone.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
When we create from this place, this place of pure expression, we experience timelessness. Everything stops, all the noise, all the worries of life, as we embrace this deep connection within ourselves. It’s in this state of creation, the silence of the voice within, that we are guided into creating something magnificent.
We are all artists in some fashion or another. Sometimes we just need to find what were passionate about, that ‘thing’ which allows for us to lose ourselves in the moment. Whats your passion? What do you enjoy creating?
Until next time,
