Creativity isn’t great art. Creativity isn’t even bound to great art.
Creativity is an action that flows from consciousness. This action presents itself as new or innovative, relative to you.
If you are a janitor, tapped into consciousness, and you figure out a new way to mop the floors – you are using creativity.
If you are a janitor, not tapped into consciousness, and you figure out a new way to mop the floors – you are only innovating.
So then, what’s the deal with creativity? Why does it matter? What’s the difference?
1. Inner harmony.
2. The ability to utilize it to find fulfillment in your life.
3. With practice, to use it to elevate the consciousness of others. This is tied to great art*.
*Great art = elevating the consciousness of those viewing, or experiencing it. You don’t need to be creative to produce great art. But increased creativity increases the likelihood of your ability to produce great art. If your’e tapped to your consciousness, consistently, how can you not reach others?
