From time immemorial, I would say that I have always been a creative soul. I was not aware, and probably did not recognize this till someone pointed it out to me. Since then, I have consciously observed myself and other creative people around me.
And here’s what I realized:
Creativity is a state of mind – One in which you are able to bring in your originality and imagination and resourcefulness in whatever you do. One can be creative in any sphere of life and more so in day-to-day life.
Most of us are able to display an occasional dash of creativity in our lives.
But are we able to be truly creative every moment of our lives…. And forever?
We all need stillness, connectedness, catalysts and inspirations to bring out the creativity. And of course, the right environment to exhibit our creativity.
There is something about constraints which stifles creativity.
Not really in the physical worldly sense – There are things we got to deal with – Be it is a dead-line or whatever?!! Of course, these also impede creativity – but the impact is probably not so deep.
More in a deeper sense - Every creative soul is in love with words like “eternity”, “infinite”, “forever” – Why? Because these words describe the “ever-so-desired” state which is vital for the creative energies to ooze – And that is a state of mind….
