Creative Expression There is a way between voice and presence where information flows. In disciplined silence it opens. With wandering talk it closes. ~Rumi All true artists, whether they know it or not, create from a place of no-mind, from inner stillness. ~Eckhart Tolle The true creativity comes out of sitting silently. When you are so totally quiet that there is no thought, no wave in the ocean of your being, out of this silence comes a different kind of creativity. ~Osho True art has nothing to do with proclamations and is created in silence. ~Marcel Proust The portal of healing and creativity always takes us into the realm of the spirit. ~Angeles Arrien When creativity is tied to the need for praise, it can’t flow naturally. When it is free of that need, you can’t stop the flow. ~Scott Kiloby If you hear a voice within you say ‘you cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced. ~Vincent Van Gogh When I was a kid, I drew like Michelangelo. It took me years to learn to draw like a kid. ~Pablo Picass We will discover the nature of our particular genius when we stop trying to conform to our own and other people’s models, learn to be ourselves, and allow our natural channel to open. ~Shakti Gawain I have spent my days stringing and unstringing my instrument while the song I came to sing remains unsung.~Rabindranath Tagore To draw, you must close your eyes and sing. ~Pablo Picasso Life now sings through me in radiant ecstasy. ~Ernest Holmes To be creative means to be in love with life. You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it. ~Osho Use what talents you possess; the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best. ~Henry Van Dyke The work of art which I do not make, none other will ever make. ~Simone Weil When we engage in what we are naturally suited to do, our work takes on the quality of play and it is play that stimulates creativity. ~Linda Naiman That which is creative must create itself. ~John Keats I myself do nothing. The Holy Spirit accomplishes all through me. ~William Blake The Holy Spirit is our harpist, And all strings, Which are touched in Love Must sound. ~Mechtild of Magdeburg The position of the artist is humble. He is essentially a channel. ~Piet Mondrian The highest level of creativity consists in being, not doing. When the being is intense enough, the doing will automatically follow. ~Marianne Williamson There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and be lost. ~Martha Graham Every artist dips his brush into his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures. ~Henry Ward Beecher I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free. ~Michelangelo Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun. ~Mary Lou Cook Living is a form of not being sure, not knowing what, next or how–The artist never entirely knows. We guess. We may be wrong, but we take leap after leap in the dark. ~Agnes de Mille Making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complicated simple, awesomely simple, that’s creativity. ~Charles Mingus The dignity of the artist lies in his duty of keeping awake the sense of wonder in the world. ~G.K. Chesterston When the spirit does not work with the hand, there is no art. ~Leonardo Da Vinci If I create from the heart, nearly everything works; if from the head, almost nothing. ~Marc Chagall The more in contact we are with our depths, the more creative we will tend to be… Creativity creates the illusion of a self-contained creator, a somebody doing it, but in fact it births and delivers itself, if we will but give our permission. At essence, creativity bypasses egoity, though egoity may claim credit for creativity’s products. In the throes of pure creativity, we primarily exist as an intimate witnessing of–and space for–what is unfolding. We are then not the creator, but are simply present for–and also as–the creative process. ~Robert Augustus Masters
