In the broad sense of creativity, we imagine a simple form of expression that human nature uses to exemplify its inner self via some avenue of artistic ability. If we look deeper towards the meaning of creativity; it is an inlaying aptitude that transcends traditional ideas, patterns, relationships and the likes their of, by emancipating a genuinely productive product that nurtures the psyche. By acknowledging the omnipresent gift of creativity, we begin to initiate innovative interpretations that can and will carry an everlasting effect. Sometimes the creative mind can fracture even the most fortified foundations. It’s important for us to distinguish when our creative juices start flowing through the inner rivers of our imagination so that we can allow inspiration to blossom. Once we undertake the soul’s agenda, the agenda manifests itself into an open passageway where there are no boundaries between our dreams and the providential supremacy that awaits us.
There is a perfectly suited metaphor that can validate my current abstract thought process.
The elaborate art of pollination.
Pollination is a process in which pollen is transferred to a plant’s female reproductive system. This very intricate process allows for fertilization to take place. It’s the same fundamental harmony as with all living creatures, to pass on critical information or genetics from one generation to the next. For pollination to prove successful, a grain of pollen is produce by the anther, otherwise known as the man parts of the flower. That grain must then be passed onto the stigma, aka the lady parts of the flower. For the process to complete itself we would also need a pollinator, basically a biotic instrument that streamline’s life. Imagine a hummingbird that we’ve all been mesmerized in hypnotic fashion at one point or another in our lives. Once the hummingbird has delicately delivered the package over and over again. Imagine a repetitive process…please pardon my sense of humor. My mind tends to wander against the grain sometimes… back to the task at hand. This process is crucial in the production life and once it has been delivered, then and only then, does growth become inevitable.
Metaphorically speaking the anther or the soul, creates a seed that the stigma or the heart, desperately needs in order for fertilization or creativity to be conceivable. The biotic instrument or hummingbird could be best described as imagination and inspiration. We need the hummingbird to bind the anther with the stigma so that fertility can reign supreme. Am I making sense?
Creativity is God’s gift to us. Using our creativity is our gift back to God. – J. Cameron
I guess the point that I am ultimately trying to make is that there is a beautiful cycle to our surroundings that connects each and every one of us with a delicate brush stroke and an itinerary that is often invisible. Creativity is the spirit that conveys the foundation of life. Without creativity, life can find itself being suffocated by the stagnant situations that suck us dry on a daily basis. Creativity is especially crucial this day and age of social media. Information whether good or bad, true or false, can spread quicker than wildfire in a drought stricken forest. This is not necessarily a good thing when used to manipulate the audience in a negative light. If we use our creative touch to outsource positivity and growth with whatever artistic tool we choose to brandish. Slowly and steadily we will create a lasting effect thatthe difference in directing the greater good towards the glory that glows in the distance.
What is your creative outpost?
Where do you find inspiration?
What’s holding you back from sharing it with the world?
Ask yourself these questions and then you will begin to clear a path through your conscience that is cluttered with creativity. It will then be up to you to go out and leave your mark. Go create something that is genuine to you. I guarantee that you will find yourself basking in the light of a surreal sunrise superfluously awakening within the depths of your passion before you allow your sun to set.
Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine, and at last, you create what you will. – George Bernard Shaw
Thank you for joining me on this far-reaching journey and for taking the time to read the words that my soul will longer allow me to ignore.
Godspeed & Good Night
Coming Soon: The Methodology of A Pickled Philosophy
My roots are buried in the Dirty South. I grew up learning the importance of God and Southern Charm. I began writing in my late teens mostly through heartbreak and music. I moved out west 15 years ago and live right around the corner from the Fountain Of Youth. Most people refer to it as Lake Tahoe. I play Chef during the day and search for ways to save the world by night, through reading, writing, and believing. I enjoy the side of life that is less abrasive. I look forward to joining you on my quest through Spiritual Sobriety with the Promised Land as our ultimate destination.
