Creativity, or the essence of creativity, what fuels the creative process, is not of the busy mind or of the ego; but it comes from beyond that, and in order to tap into it, or in order to access it, one must quiet the mind. And how do you quiet the mind…??
By observing an introspective or meditative life, a life that is not always busy and noisy, in an environment which offers calm and focus. When the environment and the body surrender to this quietude as a daily practice, then the brain alters, changes its structure and functioning, and so it access this creative essence easily.
This creative essence is intelligence, it is the purity beyond the noise of the mind, to thus understand life and yourself. Because that is what intelligence truly is: Creativity in its purest essence, not only to create art, but to understand life at a deeper level.
The anxious and stressed mind, frustrated and busy, cannot access this pure creativity; for what fills it escapes harmony and calmness, and in doing so creates a psychological environment of pure suffering. And how can intelligence live in this hostile environment…??
