Creativity As A Spiritual Response

The blogs posts for today and the foreseeable future have changed from a monthly topic on spiritual practice to an extended reflection on creativity as a spiritual practice, or more properly, a spiritual response.  As a creative, and as a person reflecting on creativity, I have come to understand creativity to be intrinsic to who I am, and who you are as well.  It also can be a participation with that which I call God, in which the Holy One invites us to be present and to create something new together.  What will it be?

I love this quotation from Christine Valters Paintner from her book, The Artist’s Rule.

      And to see others as living, or having lived lives that currently are works of art is important too.

    I LOVE this! When we really focus and co-create with God and the universe suddenly everything feels magical, and effortless. Creation is a lifelong process, and I think many people end up unhappy when they stop creating — it heals us, pushes us forward and teaches us. Big love! Xx

      Thank you for your comment. Creativity is a lifelong process and, I believe an invitation. I am delighted that you find it to be so as well.
