Create Creative Creativity

In your dreams you create a world and experiences which is new every night. To bring forth the new is a sign of great creative genius – and that is you. But perhaps you have not taken time to consider the wonder of your creative process in dreams. Every night you create a new drama. You conjure out of your own being the people, the creatures, the surroundings of your dream. Then you give life to what you create not only life but purpose and drama. You are a supreme dramatist, playwright, actor and actress. You are the great Creator in your dreams. Considering this, have you ever wondered why that enormous creativity does not flow into your waking life? You can see that some people have that creativity and are enriched by it personally and financially. Why not you?

Well, the answer is simple – we hold ourselves back. We do not allow that passion, that ability to feel all the wonder of all the characters we hold within us, and dream about, to enter our conscious life. Most of us have inbuilt mechanisms which prevent this spontaneous creative activity. Think about it – do you like meeting the new, the force of wonderful change in your life; can you face your own passionate emotions, your fears and wonder? If not then you are holding back the force of Life in you. Life is a passionate, living, moving, evolutionary thing, and dreams are a product of Life. I remember watching a young lovely woman who had just had a cast taken off her broken arm, who was talking noisily to a group of her friends, suddenly she slipped on the wet floor and banged her arm. She lay on the floor crying with the pain, and immediately all her friends scattered and left her lying alone. Why were tears or pain so awful?

Another memory strikes me as an example of such avoidance. I and a friend were sitting on a slope of a park outside of the children’s enclosure of a zoo. It was a lovely summer day and many family groups were also sitting and enjoying the view. Many animals were wandering about mixing with the children in the zoo. Suddenly a male donkey mounted a female donkey. An explosion of people happened as parent picked up their children and literally ran away. It struck me that people are frightened of LIFE.

For myself I am at heart a very simple man. I grew up amongst country people and animals. I lived as country people have lived for so long. We weren’t afraid of life or death because we could see it going on around us. It was out of that we developed our religion; our holy beliefs if you like. We didn’t do that on account of any high-falluting arguments. We could see it. We could see the man and the woman coming together, the bull and the cow, the buck and the doe rabbit – we could see that. We could see what came of it — Life. We learned to let life express as us, in tears, anger, in joy and in feeling the wonder of living. From that I learned to create. See Life’s Little Secrets

But creativity links with something vast. Here is a quote from an internet site.

“Once computers achieve a level of intelligence comparable to that of humans, they will necessarily soar past it. For example, if I learn French, I can’t readily download that learning to you. The reason is that for us, learning involves successions of stunningly complex patterns of interconnections among brain cells (neurons) and among the concentrations of biochemicals, known as neurotransmitters, that enable impulses to travel from neuron to neuron. We have no way of quickly downloading these patterns. But quick downloading will allow our non-biological creations to share immediately what they learn with billions of other machines. Ultimately, non-biological entities will master not only the sum total of their own knowledge but all of ours as well.”

That view is of course a statement resting on the current scientific theories. But there are examples of people who speak a different language they have never learned and were able to talk with a native of that language. Edgar Cayce for one was able to do this. Edgar showed that if we go beyond the edge of our own mind, if we open to what is bigger and older than our personal mind, it is possible to know what is happening deep inside another person’s body; to see or know what is happening at a distance; speak languages you have not learnt; know the ancient events in which this present life has its roots; have an experience of being part of a vast life and awareness. In fact he spoke Italian to a man seeking his help, though Edger had never learnt it, and the same to another person in another unlearned language.

To me that is a creative act, but it can occur not just with languages, for in that larger part of us is a whole universe of knowledge and ability. And again, what was said in the beginning about holding ourself back is true here. See Using Your Intuition; Touching Your Core Self; Prayer and Dream Interpretation

Try dropping your thoughts about what is possible and try reaching beyond yourself into the creative person your dreams show you to be.
