But this is not about creativity in the external sense of brainstorming or coming up with new ideas. It’s a discussion around the internal experience of creativity and what it means to be a creator.
The fulfillment of creative inspiration is more of a reflex, a necessity, in the face of the internal friction and angst that exists within us, pressing us ever deeper into ourselves in our need to explore and expose what it is that is stirring inside us. The revelations of these urges pour themselves out through limitless mediums.
This is not about mediums either.
In our expressions of creativity there exists an experience much more profound than simply finding resolution. Creativity (and the outward acts of creation it demands) is full of fear and vulnerability. Creative resolution demands a terrifying, yet unavoidable, openness of the heart — a trust that there is purpose in the risk.
This exposing of what lies within us leaves us naked before an unforgiving world. The humility of creation is so real, so overwhelming, it often brings us to our knees.
Yet interwoven within this visceral, emotional experience of creativity is the reality of the soul that we have been created in the image of a Creator who is ever beckoning us. And the more we open ourselves to the depths of what it means to be a creator, the more we seem to find of Him — and in this intimacy, we begin to see how just as His creation speaks of His heart, our creativity does too.
