We are creators

All human beings are born creators, sadly we are taught and conditioned from an early age ‘don’t make a mess’ or ‘colour within the lines’, essentially take out the risk and do as you are told. Follow the programme.

It’s a repeating process because the children become the adults and the same de-risking process is continued generation after generation.

A question we can ask ourselves is ‘what did I create today?’. We don’t have to be creating huge amazing things, but a step by step daily process of small creations leads to an amazing creation.

Our sense of fulfilment can be satisfied by creating and rarely by simply doing the same tasks every day.

Life without

I could take life without a spoon, an Xbox, a smartphone, the internet, yeah I really did say that as I am publishing another blog on it, I could always publish it old school as say a paper. Much of what the world holds up as important, I and you could do without. In fact, we’d be better off without.

I couldn’t live without art, music, people, nature, books, and most of all love. Imagine a world without any pictures or music. Even more, imagine a life without having love, there is no life. Yet the world is filled with hate and for example, the arts considered as a waste of time. Now, miraculously, healthcare specialists finally waking up to the benefits to our mental and physical health of being in nature, wow what a revelation eh!

Strange how much not having the internet seems to stress the whole world out more than say, not having time to appreciate art or being loving towards each other. Hate is the norm, but we could all do without it.
