Kamala’s Musings

I’ve been thinking about how to live more in the creative flow, to write more from inspiration and less by thinking and research. I’ll share some of what I’ve learned with you in this issue of Spiritual Life Magazine.

We’re all creative. We may or may not become creative artists. Or even should be. But creativity is essential for success in every field—material, artistic, or spiritual. We must master the art of living creatively to thrive.

This is not the kind of creativity that comes from our little ego, not like a rock star screaming, “Look at me! Look how great I am!” Rather, we need to tune in to what God wants to express through us.

We are all born creative. As part of the Great Creator, we’re co-creators. But what happened? We get squelched as we grow up—by school, by peers, careless remarks by parents, our own mental critic which proclaims that we’re not good enough, special enough to be real artists. It can take quite a lot of work to overcome our fears, still those beliefs and reignite our creativity.

But it’s a journey back to our true selves that’s well worth the effort.

I’m thinking of going back to kindergarten or maybe preschool. Not literally, of course, but as a framework for adding more fun and creativity to my life—naps, milk and warm cookies, finger painting. Sounds delicious! 🤗

With love, light, and joy—from my heart to yours,
