A little delayed, I know. Here is the rest of the discussion continued from my post of April 18, where I was taking a look at the creative process and how our minds work with that.
I continue to be amazed at my own naivety in thinking I was one of just a few( that I knew of anyway), who operated differently to the rest of humanity at large. Ahemm!
Well surprise, surprise, I am not alone in my ivory tower, out on the edge where we creatives seem to dwell. It is becoming apparent that finally mainstream is beginning to realize the value of the creative process, to the forward movement of the human race.
The problem has always been that creativity, creative thought, comes from the wellspring of the feminine mode of thinking. And well – here we are fully immersed in the results of a patriarchal, male dominated society which has been running for several hundred years. As a result creative thinking has been squashed, sidelined, persecuted and ridiculed – the tools of the left brained, dominating ruling plutarchy that is currently in place.
However there is a shift afoot at a grass roots level. We have come to a point where there is so much competition, the Internet has opened up such an equality of information access that we are being forced into a new paradigm. The future belongs to those with the abilities to access the creative/intuitive, non lingual brain functions, to those with abilities in pattern recognition and capable of non linear, quantum leap thinking. It is no longer enough to follow the rules, tomorrow demands that we break them. The faster we progress the more we require these skills.
We are being required to step up and really begin to use all of our potential as human beings. What might you be capable of if you really listened to and acted on your intuitive, creative, quantum leaping, self? As someone famous once said – It’s not our failures that we are afraid of it is our successes, our magnificent powerful selves that we never quite let loose, that is what truly terrifies us!
Below is an in depth video on creativity by Writer Amy Tan. She is engaging, humorous and interesting as she examines creativity, quantum physics, and the way we experience synchronicity during the creative process.
