Human Beings are Creative by Nature

Image“Learn to see. Realize that everything connects with everything else.”                           ~Leonardo DaVinci

Human beings are creative by nature. We were each born with an innate ability to express ourselves through art, music, language, dance and other forms of creativity and communication. This innovative spirit is sometimes pushed down by institutions and beliefs that tell us artists are rare. Don’t listen to those voices. We were all born with the potential to be creative, to participate in the remaking of our world.

Learning to see with greater tolerance and clarity- to trust ourselves. Putting faith in the Creative Field out of which all worlds and creatures unfold. Deep down, we are that field, everything is.

We are each a unique expression of the Universe’s consciousness, arising here in living form. Sleep walking across the ages. Lost in shared and individual dreams, beginning to awaken…

Cultivating inner peace, learning to love one another and this beautiful blue planet we share, just as she is, every part and particle, every tragedy and miracle.

Learning how to appreciate All That Is, how to dissolve deluded thinking. Remembering how to dance these precious lives we live- as creative expressions of a greater wakefulness.
