Becoming a Creator

Creativity is the quality that you bring to the activity that you are doing. It is an attitude, an inner approach – how you look at things…. Not everybody can be a painter – and there is no need also. If everybody is a painter the world will be very ugly; it will be difficult to live! And not everybody can be a dancer, and there is no need. But everybody can be creative. Whatsoever you do, if you do it joyfully, if you do it lovingly, if your act of doing is not purely economical, then it is creative. If you have something growing out of it within you, if it gives you growth, it is spiritual, it is creative, it is divine.

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. So he must be the creator because people who have been creative have been closest to him. Love what you do. Be meditative while you are doing it – whatsoever it is! Osho

If you’re still hooked into organized thinking, the thought of being god-like, a cosmic creator, might seem downright blasphemous. If that’s your reaction, then welcome. It is an indicator that this is a thought ready for exploration. However, you might also feel that it’s an impossibility, there’s no way that you can be divinely moved and inspired to create life constantly. Well, the good news is that you don’t need to ‘DO’ anything. All that’s needed by you is an unhooking from what you perceive to be real and ‘gospel truth.’

Most of us live an ‘unexamined life’ and to paraphrase my friend Socrates, “it’s not worth living.” That’s because it’s not a living entity. Life is not something that happens to you. Life moves through you! It partners with you. Every moment that you draw a breath is a co-creative act. You see, Life can’t do it alone. Life requires partnership with you to make every mundane moment, magical, creative, alivening.

Today, envision this moment as a canvass upon which you get to color and bring to life a unique experience. Today, open to the life force surging through you and engage and activate your unique offerings and contribution. Today, breathe the cosmic breath of creation into every moment and experience the Living Art that is your Being.
