Creativity is not an art but an act and out of this act of creativity, each and every type of art is born. Life itself is an art that is born out of creativity of creator.
Since Life is an art, each living being is born to be an artist. To be an artist, one does not have to perform some music concert or do some paintings. I would say anyone who could transform a moment of nothingness into celebration is an artist.
There is infinite amount of art and creativity in the silence of trees, same way there is so much of art present in the ducks floating in water in utter silence and in the chirping of birds. But most of us could never recognize the artwork present within the nature. We must take the ego away and look at the creation, and then only could we see the everlasting beauty of artwork in a creation.
So much Creativity is present in the ducks floating on water if one looks at them with an eye beyond ego.
Since human is also part of nature and since every existing being is so creative, Human is also supposed to be creative. In fact only an act like creativity could ever end the never ending misery of human being.
I often wonder what happened to the creativity of human being?
Evolution of mind could be one reason of lack of creativity among humans. Human mind has evolved so much that we have totally become unaware of the fact that life could exist beyond the mind too. We have become more like machines where we tend to satisfy ourselves with our monotonous mechanical lifestyles.
The other reason could be the invention of money. Money is really good to have but greed for Money often kills the creativity of a gifted artist. Money has made modern art very much goal oriented and when art becomes goal oriented, it loses the basic essence of creativity.
I hope one day human would realize that creativity is born out of ecstasy same ways as human life is born out of creativity of ecstatic divine. I hope that one-day human would realize that none other than creativity is only capable to fulfill human life with ecstasy and make it complete.
