Within the silence of our being lies the potential for heightened creativity. This is the creativity to propel us towards right thought, word and deed.
Our lives are inspiring examples of how creativity has taken us to the pinnacle of success, without turning off the inner voice.
To please the power that splendidly controls the world also requires innovative ways of lighting the lamp of devotion. Honesty, simplicity and kindness are rivers that flow along the current of nature's brilliance at governing the swirl of give and take.
The innate strength of these vital forces lead us to the realisation that it would be an unmistakably relieving situation when problems which slacken our pace --- like cheating, violence, terrorism and ethnic clashes --- are resolved before condensing into balls of mass conflict.
"All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become."
These words by Gautam Buddha highlight the importance of thinking. And if we think differently, myriad doors of possibilities open for us. Even to reach the divine, there are so many ways.
That's where we need creativity, innovative ways to sustain our interest in the goings-on here and now.
And that is where new, imaginative thoughts and awakenings could help. Leading an ideal or a near ideal life requires approaches and methods which act as significant pointers marked to help us achieve harmony for ourselves, our families, communities, nations, consequently the entire world.
The wealth of experience of the past, the present, tangled with the trajectory we expect our foray into the future would take, is as valuable as the intersection of both traditional as well as modern explorations of nourishing the body, mind and soul.
Multiple dimensions of creativity have been harnessed in the fields of art, science and technology just as well as they are in attaining the benevolence of the divine.
Simplicity and complexity are the two loops within which creativity can find a niche and develop into a catalyst that would drive our endeavours into a happy ending.
