Creativity isn’t stuck in the past. It’s living now. It’s giving advantages to wisdom, wellbeing, and the future.
The human mind resists creativity by insisting on repeating the past, which is impossible because God, Life, is now, new, and nimble. Unfortunately, the human mind also is actively struggling to hold onto its mortal identity and insists it’s pure and right. Thus, ignoring creativity.
We just moved to a new house. Well, it’s an older house, but new to us.
And, it is the middle of a hot summer.
Sunshine heats the inside of the house in a blink. This house has old moldy, disintegrating curtains (I kid you not) and vertical blinds that only partially help the situation.
At first, I resisted the whole move. I was ready to move back to our old house which sits in a cooler climate and has efficient window blinds.
The resistance came with the insistence that the past scenario was best, however, it the past scenario involves material things.
And material things, whether buildings, books, or human bodies, can’t stop creativity.
So, I took what we had and used them effectively while ordering new blinds.
I removed the decomposing curtains and hung them outside to continue blocking the sunshine. I broke down emptied moving boxes and hung the cardboard on other windows. Yes, there are a lot of windows in this house, but I re-learned again that we don’t lack, and creativity is active.
The neighbors understand. Our children crack jokes. “Oh, just look for the house with the curtains hanging on the outside.”
Life goes on. Instead of bemoaning the decomposing past, instead of enabling a decomposing future, get with creativity. It’s here. It’s alive.
Quoting from science & religion to God
“Consider these factors:
- The temporal never touches the eternal;
- The changeable never touches the unchangeable;
- The inharmonious never touches the harmonious;
- The self-destructive never touches the self-existent.
Reproduction by Spirit’s individual ideas is but the reflection of the creative power, God.”
