Divinity and Creativity

We finished Big Magic last night, embracing divinity in creating.

A story of sacred dances in Bali looked at What is sacred? and What is not sacred?

In her story, it was only high-minded Westerners who had trouble with that one…because they insisted on separating and having some tangible way of discerning one from the other. It’s where many get hung up and sidetracked from experiencing divine magic and celebrating its blending and powerful transforming metamorphosis.

I loved her In Conclusion words:

Creativity is sacred, and it is not sacred.

What we make matters enormously, and it doesn’t matter at all.

We toil alone, and we are accompanied by spirits.

We are terrified, and we are brave.  Art is a crushing chore and a wonderful privilege.

Only when we are at our most playful can divinity finally get serious with us.

Make space for all these paradoxes to be equally true inside your soul, and I promise–you can make anything.

So please calm down now and get back to work, okay?

The treasures that are hidden inside you are hoping you will say yes.

(Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic)

I LOVE that!  — those paradoxes that are equally true — and I especially love this:  Only when we are at our most playful can divinity finally get serious with us.

Divinity and playfulness create magic

Elizabeth Gilbert’s Big Magic was a wonderfully worthwhile inspiring read.
