What’s Your Relationship with Creativity?

October 10, 2016

painting-1484863_640This is one of the Personal Reflections extracted from my book (see p 200) which summarizes my journey of creative recovery. Enjoy!

I paint, dance, build secret dens in the wood and immerse myself in other realms that enrich the creative freedom of my childhood.

I wake up and see with closed eyes, knowing I am elsewhere yet simultaneously still here. It is effortless and joyful; a playful adventure of inner and outer.

Then I learn ‘how things are’.

Grown-ups have serious work to do and creative play is an optional extra reserved for hobbies and weekends.

I become skilled at studying and working hard, yet retain the connection to my creative core through crimson hair and outrageous earrings worn with tailored suits.

I pour myself into my work, feel a deep sense of purpose and enjoy the fruits of external achievement.

Yet by the time I reach the top of my chosen tree, I’m way beyond empty and my creative soul is starved from neglect while others have taken priority.

I’m given a chance to change or die.

The grace of transformation reveals that time and space for conscious and creative living are not ‘optional extras’ but fundamental requirements for me at every level.

Expressing the essence of who I am is the foundation of my creative impulse, and I choose Creation as the centre from which I and my life unfold.

Immense relief washes through me as my childhood joy gradually resurfaces, and I know that I have come home to my Self at last.
