We can not solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them.
To create is to live twice. People who say that yesterday was better than today are ultimately devaluing their own existence. Think of yourself as a brand. You need to be remembered. What will they remember you for? What defines you? If you have it in you, do something that defines you. Invent something, develop a unique skill, get noticed for something it creates a talking point. Create. Not for the money. Not for the fame. Not for the recognition. But for the pure joy of creating something and sharing it. You cannot build a dream on a foundation of sand. To weather the test of storms, it must be cemented in the heart with uncompromising conviction. Everything in creation has its appointed painter or poet and remains in bondage like the princess in the fairy tale ’til its appropriate liberator comes to set it free.
It’s so easy to lose faith and become lost in all of the politics of the world. That’s why we need the arts. To sublimate our frustration and anger into something beautiful. Freud called sublimation a virtuous defence mechanism because it is in the arts that we can find our humanity. Every creative story is different. And every creative story is the same. There was nothing. Now there is something. It’s almost like magic. Hating skin color is contempt for God’s divine creative imagination. Honoring it is appreciation for conscious, beautiful-love-inspired diversity. If we can write or sing or create in some way, even when we are dealing with difficulties or pain, then it becomes something bigger than ourselves and often beautiful.Rulers are not anointed. They are created by the void of self-mastery. Blames create no change; winners don’t apportion blames; only losers have the potentials to do that
You are one thing only. You are a Divine Being. An all-powerful Creator. You are a Deity in jeans and a t-shirt, and within you dwells the infinite wisdom of the ages and the sacred creative force of All that is, will be and ever was. The monster I kill every day is the monster of realism. The monster who attacks me every day is destruction. Out of the duel comes the transformation. I turn destruction into creation over and over again. When the river of emotions bursts its banks and expectations go over the edges of reality, the brain creates hallucinations. Ringxiety-stricken people feel illusive vibrating alerts and hear phantom phone rings, since absence of ringing generates scaring emptiness and destroys their self-esteem. Laws of nature have no physical properties of mass energy. They are platonic truths in transcendent realm that create & govern the Universe.
You create within your mind your own cages that confine you. We cannot look at the past or the future except by means of the imagination but again the imagination of backward glances is one thing and the imagination of looks ahead something else. Even the psychologists concede this present particular, for, with them, memory involves a reproductive power, and looks ahead involve a creative power: the power of our expectations. You cannot give what has not been created. Your first action is always to create something. The challenges in today’s world are real and threatening. But they cannot withstand the assault of sustained flexible and out-of-the-box thinking. The mind is limitless in its ability to adapt where necessary and create where inevitable. The onus is on the owner of the mind to make the needed shift in attitude, backed by a concerted action. It is time to eschew fear and complacency and, in the words of Steve Jobs, ‘stay hungry and stay foolish. Reasons are in the past, and hence creation is doing for no reason at all.
Today, you have the opportunity to transcend from a disempowered mindset of existence to an empowered reality of purpose-driven living. Today is a new day that has been handed to you for shaping. You have the tools, now get out there and create a masterpiece. Believe in the magic that’s in you, its potential, what it can achieve. But most of all believe in yourself and create a world where dreams become reality. What then are you doing if not creating a better place together? I think, for me the key has to be, what do I want to create? What is it I want to leave behind? People who found something to live and die for always live in the hope of success. They never allow doubts to create distances between them and their harvest time. That is also their decision. If you did not create it, you cannot be the effect of it. We are all Born To Create, but not all of us unleash the creativity within. The worst thing you can do is face reality. The best thing you can do is create reality.
Only nothing can create something.
