Spirituality: Basic Principles of Creativity

1. Creativity is the natural order of life. Life is energy: pure creative energy.

2. An underlying, indwelling creative force infuses all of life - including ourselves.

3. When we open ourselves to creativity, we open ourselves to God's creativity within us and our lives.

4. We are creations, and in turn, we are meant to continue creativity by being creative ourselves.

5. Creativity is God's gift to us. Using our creativity is our gift back to God.

6. The refusal to be creative is self-will and is counter to God's designs for us.

7. We we explore our creativity, we open ourselves to God: good orderly direction.

8. As we open our creative channel to God, many gentle, powerful changes are expected.

9. It is safe to open up to greater creativity.

10. Our creative dreams and yearnings come from a divine source. As we move toward our dreams, we move toward our divinity.
