“Creativity is the capacity to see the potential in an idea, in a landscape, in the use of color, in the angle of light, in a turn of phrase. It is the defining grace of the Artist. Though many people are surprised when creativity is mentioned as a grace, or spiritual gift, it is in fact a profound one. Creativity has the power to generate art, drama, literature, music, dance, and countless other forms of expression that inspire and transform us.
But how, exactly, do you as an Artist/Creative experience the grace of creativity? You may not be accustomed to thinking about grace in your life, much less creativity as a manifestation of it. But understanding something about the nature of creativity can help you better resonate with its power. For one thing, creativity thrives in a positive environment, an optimistic approach to life. Although we all have bad days and, at times, difficulties that may last for weeks or months, leaving room in your heart for optimism and hope keeps your creative fires burning.”
