Creativity is the training ground for miracles

Have you ever thought that there must be some sort of greater purpose to your creative surges?  You find something that you love, and when you give yourself over to it your spirit soars!  You could spend days, weeks, months doing it and never tire of it.  The stereotype attached to this is that it must be something artistic … that’s true creativity.

That’s simply not true.  We can find creativity within us during just about ANY activity.  If your calling is to be the world’s best mom, or dad; you can find amazing and incredible things to do with your kids, and creative ways to show them your love.  If your calling is to be a construction worker; you can find creative ways to make yourself the best and most trusted in your trade.  Basically … if you LOVE something, or someone … there’s probably a reason for it.  Whatever it is … that is part of the unique Creation that is you.

Here’s the thing about creativity though … just because you have it, doesn’t mean that it is necessarily being put to good, or constructive, use.  Here’s an example: when I was a suicidally depressed teenager – my teacher remarked that every time she read my poetry she cried.  I remember I wrote one piece in particular that reduced her to a weeping mess … it was about a deer that had been shot through the lungs by an arrow and was dying a slow death.  Yeah … REAL uplifting.

What Creativity DOES do is show us the unique gifts that God has blessed us with.  When we are connected with God and unimpeded by the past, worries of the future, and all of the chaos that goes on in the world of today … when we are just CONNECTED to God’s Love.  That is when our Creativity can then take on the form of a Miracle.

I enjoy expressing myself through writing (as well as many other forms: cooking, singing, composing music, etc.).  You could say that since I gave my life to the arts, I have become a creative being … and that would be true.  However, the things that I produced as that creative Being were a direct reflection of who my True Self was at the time … at the time when my True Self was repressed and shackled to an Inner World of fears, rejection, bitterness, anger, and many other things … that was how I expressed myself creatively … those awful things within me were expressed inherently in what I Creatively did in some way, shape, or form.

THAT is why I say that Creativity is the training ground for Miracles.  When you have gone within and cleared out all of those ancient blockages.  When you have opened yourself to allow the Love of your Creator to wash all of that crap out?  Then your Creativity becomes what God always intended it to become all along … a conduit for God to work through you.

Think about it … when you see a painting, or hear a song, that completely takes your breath away … or makes you cry even … there is something MORE to it than just the brush strokes, or vocal gymnastics of the singer.  There is a SOUL that is expressed.  THAT is a miracle.  Raising the most beautiful children in the world, because you allowed God to shape them instead of imposing your own flaws upon them … THAT is a miracle.

Guess what??  LOVING yourself, even though you can find a million ways to loathe yourself … THAT is a Miracle … it is the first Miracle in the line of many more Miracles to come.  Learn to Love yourself … you are beautiful, just as you are.  God thinks so … and I think so too (because I choose to be a mirror of God’s Love to the world).

God wants you to accept how wondrously you are Loved, and embrace that View as how you see yourself.  Then your TRUE Creative Self will be unleashed upon the world … for whatever God intends.

Peace and Love.

Religion4All is an idea: that every human being (no matter their race, religion, sexuality, social status, lifestyle, or any other possible factor) is LOVED by God; just … as … they are.

We all are loved by God, and NO religion or person has a monopoly on it. Every single person on this planet is loved equally by God … SO many are cut off from God because they are told they don’t belong. God loves everyone … we ALL are beautiful creations … we don’t need to cringe when we hear the words “God”, or “religion”, or their judgments … God LOVES us all!

There is no requirement to change in order to be LOVED by God, or to LOVE God. God is LOVE, and LOVE is God … period. There is no one who God loves more than anyone else … there are only those who choose to LOVE more … to love God more, and consequently then to love each other more. In doing so, we grow closer to God … and know God.

By opening our hearts, and minds to God (free of boundaries like religion, or social trends); by LOVING God … we are exactly where we are meant to be. If we maintain that openness, never allowing any person or event to make us close our hearts, we will be guided by God to be who we are meant to be.

In that space of openness we can then live a life of LOVE, and be guided to where we are meant to be … forever in LOVE.
