Our Lord is the greatest creator
Who has created the Mother Nature
With everything in exquisite order
Only man creates disorder
In the fine-tuned fabric of Nature
By his omissions and commissions
Which disturbs the balance of creation
Created by our Supreme Creator.
We humans create our own world (Sansara)
Of our own apt choice besides fertile ideas
After cleansing all mildew
Encrusted in our mind
Thence throwing out all the disturbing distractions
From within our self
Thus establish the reign of serenity
And tranquil mind, just calmly
This stillness creates conditions
For creative instincts to come to the fore
Creative people never feel shy of any challenge
If and when doubt arises
They are open minded and open ended
With flexibility in abundance
Along with belief in self to create
And the Supreme Creator
For providing necessary input/cues
If our goal is to create something extraordinary
Then we shall have to take path so out of ordinary..
CREATION IS THE RESULT OF DISTINCT AND MYSTIC THOUGHT WHICH IS PUT IN ACTION
Creation is very distinct and mystic thought. It could happen when we adopt a method which is out out of ordinary. Unique thoughts and actions result in unique outcomes as persistence in our efforts always bring about positive results. It could be construed as a digging deep exercise in our inner self and coming out with a rich enlightening thoughts and then actions thereof. It could be understood as a deep churning in our own inner self like the Samundar Manthan or sea churning by the Devtas and demons. In which many things of huge importance came out. Meaning everything exists but we have to make a sincere effort with strong determination for creating something unique. For this to be reality, we have to first of all cleanse our mind and have sense control to attain a stage of stillness away from restless of our mind. Silence being the creative zone of our being. In Bhagwad Git it has rightly been said: The mind is restless and difficult to restrain, but is is subdued by practice. Still mind works wonders for creating something only one of its kind.
WE ARE THE CREATIONS OF OUR CREATOR
The best things are created with great passion, wherein every small details are taken care. God is a great Creator. All the creations of the world, stars, the galaxies, the beautiful blue sky, the cloudy skies, rain drops, snowing; in other world every play of Nature has been sculpted with enormous precision. Every speck/agents/elements of Nature has been created in such a manner that nothing is lost. Every tiny speck has got its significance without which the whole entity does not work in cohesion. Similar is the case with our body. The way our body functions with all the organs of the body working as a cohesive unit. If any one organ fails, the entire body just becomes dysfunctional. For instance, the five fingers of our hand. If one of the fingers gets injured, the function of our entire hand gets hampered, its functionality gets disrupted.
We also are aware how present day humans evolved with the passage of time. Similar is the case with our evolution in our knowledge. Every day we should make an effort to evolve us with the new experiences and thus make a mark for ourselves. For instance, my of my friends studied in a Government run village school with almost no facilities like library books, the labs were not well stocked for experiments because of financial constraints. But one thing most appropriate was the environment of learning created by the teachers (Gurus). They compensated the deficiencies with their methodical and systematic grooming of the students by sound transference of value system along with created competitive environment in the school besides utilizing effectively the resources available in the school at that time. My friend and his classmates were so much motivated that they evinced interest in becoming a holistic personality by working hard to achieve any goal. At that time award and punishment was the norms which instilled awe and respect for the teaching community. I know this because I was also a part of that class. It is also pertinent to mention that all the classmates of mine did exceptionally well in their lives. Furthermore, we considered our teachers next to our parents for molding ourselves. Our teachers also taught the importance of sincerity in our efforts, persistence and belief in self and God. This paid dividends for us all.
HUMANS REQUIRE HUMANE TOUCH FOR ENHANCING RECREATIVE FERVOR
The faith is such thought percept which does not cost anything but could generate a feeling of strong determination. A strong faith is generated in stages. These are:-
Creation of thought. When a thought takes birth in us, then, that thought remains unproductive and useless till such time it is put into practice through experimentation through trial and error method and subsequently learning from the experiments. On the way, we get practice which creates faith in our efforts. This faith is the first requisite for our creativity. This is in line with the Bbhagwad Gita: Man s made by his beliefs. As he believes, so he is.
KNOWLEDGE BECOMES USELESS TILL IT IS MADE APPLICABLE
When we have faith in our action, then, failure and success makes no difference to us. If we fail, then our faith spurs us to try again and again till we get some tangible results. This faith in our effort creates condition for creation of something unique.
Experimenting with thought generated is equivalent to experimenting with truth. The important aspect of our faith is availing opportunities for experimenting with the truth. Experimenting with truth brings in its wake spiritual orientation to our effort which helps us delving deep into ourselves and helps bring out the best creative outcome since what comes out of our inner self (heart) is creative in its wake. Whosoever uses the inner potential uses both head and heart creates something unique. It is because with strong faith, we can achieve our goal, and when strong faith in us is entwined with spiritualism, it brings about something very extraordinary for which everybody appreciates us since it is useful for them. For the achiever, it is pride of a achievement since it is got through his/her best inner efforts. The wisdom of Bhagwad Gita is very relevant here: The wise sees knowledge and action as one; they see truly.
True Bhakti or meditation solidifies our belief or faith in us which brings out the best from us but for this to be real, we have to put best foot forward. We have to become a Karma Yogi – spirituality pays rich dividends.
In real sense, we all are created in the mold of our Supreme Creator therefore we all are creator in one form or another. Everybody could do something unique but in essence it is important to have to do so therefore everybody could create something unique. We can also follow others and work hard to follow their footsteps, in other words imbue in their colours. This could be done by improving our work which was done earlier on by putting on sincere efforts and enhance our capacity to develop subsequently this could be made a habit. There are people who think that creative instinct is an inherited faculty; I opine, it is earned by going even beyond our comfort zone – practice as hard as possible. For instance a work of art created with immense zeal and enthusiasm creates joy for every not only for the creator but also for the people who glimpse his creative work. In other words the person concerned is immortalized through his creation. There are so many examples wherein their hard work paid rich dividends in the form of creative work. In other words, creativity is infinite – it does not die.
Great artist Pablo Picasso has opined: Good artists copy, great artists steal.
PRE-REQUISITES FOR CREATIVE MENTALITY
BEING OPEN MINDED AND OPEN ENDED
When we are of closed mentality then we would be lacking in creativity. Therefore, we have to be open minded and open hearted so as to absorb everything which comes. In other words, we have to be very flexible in our approach. Assimilate everybody and everything good which comes on the path to our holistic development. But at the same time, we have to be very particular while seeking our spiritual goals. Here we have to seek quality rather than quantity of our search. We have to be determined and tough minded in other words hard-nosed for getting things done what we should actually have to consolidate our position as a person who sorts out wisdom out of mystified and confused thoughts.
LIMITING OUR THOUGHTS MEANS LIMITING OUR KNOWLEDGE ACQUIRING
Our thoughts are the prime-movers of our knowledge. If we limit our thoughts then we shall be limiting the scope of our actions and thus wisdom out of such thoughts and actions. Therefore, we have to self-aware and let our conscious mind to be pro-active in helping us to expand our awareness. While doing so, we have to control our mind since an uncontrolled mind acts as an enemy of self-knowledge. We have to remove our ignorance with self-belief for self-knowledge. In Bhagwad Gita it has been asserted that: ‘’sever the ignorant doubt in your heart with the sword of self-knowledge. By doing so, we shall remain action oriented and keep on improving at every stage of our life and realize our purpose of our existence.
MEN WITH WISDOM HAVE SOLUTION TO EVERY PROBLEM
WHAT WE WANT TO BE DEPENDS ON US
IN Bhagwad Gita it has rightly been said: man is made by his belief. As he believes, so he is. In In essence, we have to have firm belief in us, create conditions so as to be what we actually want to be. For this, we have to have conceptualize our thoughts processes first, accept what is best for our self-growth while leaving what is not suitable for us as per the situation and condition in which we are living. We can adopt any profession of our inclination but for this to be reality, we need to have firm self-belief. In life we come across people with determined mind-set. We can learn from their life story and adopt their way of life. Such set goals for themselves and make concerted efforts in achieving the same. They do not see back but steadfastly work for such an achievement something exceptional. Thus those have got everything and those who do not have anything could be gauged from their attitude towards life. Those who persevere can only achieve. This achievement could be in any sphere; for name and fame, for reaching highest pedestal in life, for spiritually onward march along with achieving what one wants etc.
In Bhagwad Gita it has clearly put: Creation is only the projection into form of that which already exists:. We have to draw out what already exists in us with utmost persistence along with sincerity in our efforts even with out of box ideas.
