We wish to discuss something Brenda heard earlier this week, “creativity requires courage.” So it does, just as is true for creation. Both force you to move outside your comfort zone, to be different – even laughed at. Indeed, creativity and creation require that you think differently than others.
To create is to produce something that is new to you or others. Everyone has created something – from a garden to a new corporate idea. Even though you have practiced creativity every life you have had on earth, most likely, you have done so within certain limits – safe colors, safe plants and safe corporate structures. A few of you have dared to color outside the box – such as musicians creating a new sound or designers a new look. But most of you have played it safe throughout many lifetimes on earth.
You knew you could create – or in a phrase more comfortable – be creative. But most likely, you limited that creativity to the designs, patterns and colors of the day. Leonardo De Vinci was not a popular artist – he experimented and worked too slowly for most patrons. Thoreau was chided for not taking the secure route of managing his family’s lucrative pencil factory. He followed his dream to create writings that continue to influence the thoughts of millions. Yet in his lifetime, as was true for De Vinci, he was not considered a success.
Perhaps such thought create fear in your being. Does this mean you need to forsake all of your comforts to create what you dream of. No. In this New Age creativity and creation are more important than safety. Actions in the Old Age were ”group think.” Even though a few such as De Vinci, Jimi Hendrix and Gandhi escaped that process, they were the exception and not the rule.
The New Age flips that action pattern. Creation and creativity are your New Age keys. In the Old Age you tried to be like everyone else. In the New Age you will not wish to be like anyone. Yet we keep telling you that you are all one. How are those thoughts compatible?
Prior to this transition, you felt that the only way you could be accepted was to follow the guidelines created by someone outside yourself – whether that be the church, government, family, friends or community.
Now that you have moved into the New Age, you are beginning to understand that being unique does not disqualify you from anyone or anything, it merely enhances the whole. Let us explain. Those few on earth in past eons who created whatever it is that you now admire, had to fight for their place in society. Please review the lives of those people you consider geniuses and you will find that their lives were not necessarily easy.
You are now advanced enough to understand that each person, each entity has something unique to share. As others create what brings them joy, your life will be more fulfilled. Do you have an interest in creating a new energy system? If not, think how wonderful it is that someone else cannot wait to do so. And the same is true for every field, every aspect of your life and all the entities on earth.
It is no longer appropriate to hold others back, to force them to be part of the group, so that you will not feel left out. It is time to encourage others to produce those goods and services that will help make your life more joyful. Let us give you a different perspective. Do you remember Junior High when everyone was expected to wear the same clothing, be interested in the same activities and how those who did not comply were ostracized? That is how you have lived on earth for eons. It is time to graduate and create the life that is right for you.
Which returns us to our original thought. Creativity and creation require courage – much more than you realize. We applaud those who have already moved beyond the expected in whatever area interests them. Jump, leap, skip to your new life – the life you are creating for you – not for society, the church, the government, the corporate world or any venue not right for you.
The earth no longer needs everyone rowing at the same speed, in the same type of boat. It is time to create new boats; and to stop when you wish to explore. You will know what you wish to explore by listening to your heart. Write a book. Build a new computer. Form a new religion. It does not matter. All that matters is that the process makes your heart sing.
Are we promising that all of you who wish to write a book will create a literary masterpiece? No. We are stating that if you wish to do so, you will. But if you merely wish to play with words, that is all you need to do. Create what you want, when you want it and it will be right for you and for the Universes.
Create what society tells you to create and it will not sparkle. Old Age creations are much more about group think than individual processes – just as was true for most of you in Junior High. You have graduated.
Let your creative and creation abilities soar and you will create miracles. Listen to others and your creations will never quite “gel”. Take your courage and soar in the creative heavens. There are no longer any limits – not even the sky.
So be it. Amen
