Creation

 “All the works of man have their origin in creative fantasy. What right have we then to depreciate imagination.”

Carl Jung

Last month we talked about transformation and change. In the cycle represented by the hindu trinity, the next step is creation. We are all given creative power. Our minds create all the time, and our bodies do as well. Making cells and plasma, or even creating human life. The creative force is represented in the hindu trinity by Bhramha and Saraswati. Change and creation are deeply connected. We need change and struggle to create. When something in the world shifts, it necessitates innovation.

“Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.”

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dr. King has an interesting thought here. Creativity can help us find ways to be self-less. How can we get creative about contributing to the greater good? How can we use our minds and our imagination to help solve our collective issues?

“You are never given a dream with out the power to make it true.” unknown

Being creative can be such a fun and uplifting way to spend time. When we learn something new we create new pathways in our minds. Knowledge can help to inspire our creative side. Some of us like to sing, read, or paint. Others find that creative spark with cooking or working. We all have something that helps us feel a sense of accomplishment.  Something that helps us feel like we are contributing. What do you do to get creative?

In yoga there are so many aspects to the practice. Even if you were to do the same set of exercises everyday, they would feel different. Encouraging that creative force in your practice doesn’t have to involve crazy asanas, and long complicated flows. It can be as simple as experimenting with a new intention during practice.  Use your imagination to create new goals and dive deeper into meditation. Look for the pieces of the practice that inspire you! Ask your self, what is it that I want to create in the world?  Start with your thoughts and then move that intention into your practice.  Get out there and get creative!
