Thought for the day: As I go through the day, I allow my creativity to spring forth

Daily Quote:
A creative act enhances the beauty of the world. It gives something to the world, it never takes anything from it.” ~Osho

Today’s message from Osho is about creativity.

Osho said that we have a limited view of creativity. This is something we have learned.

Everyone can be creative. It is not in the activity itself, but is in the attitude… the inner approach or how we look at things… that makes us all creative. It is in the way we love, enjoy, and being grateful for what we are doing or creating.

We can do any activity (i.e. dancing, poetry, etc.) in a noncreative way. But when we add quality to what we are doing, then even if we just sit silently, we are being creative.

Everyone is born creative, but we have forgotten that through what we learned from our culture, society, or other learned conditioning. Osho advises to observe children as they play and create–as they enjoy whatever they are doing, because they have not given into conditioning yet. They are simply enjoying and sharing. We can learn from them.

We, each of us, were born here in this life for a reason. Each of us is a major contributor in this life. Be creative and share your creativity with the world.

Excerpt from the course:
Whatsoever you do, if you do it joyfully, if you do it lovingly, if your act of doing it is not purely economical, then it is creative. If you have something growing out of it within you, if it gives you growth, it is spiritual, it is creative, it is divine. Love what you do. Be meditative while you are doing it, whatsoever it is – irrelevant of the fact of what it is.”
