About the Book

“Our soul whispers to us constantly. When we understand the power of conscious and subconscious mind and the way the soul communicates with us, we can help ourselves enter the creative flow. Developing both Left and Right Brain could be essential for Creative Thinkers of our Future. To purify mind we start with the consciousness that the energy follows thoughts. It is important that we free ourselves of negative beliefs and thoughts, stop gossiping, judging or criticizing and that we work on developing the creative force within us.” Nuit

Excerpts

INTRODUCTON

It was during the Renaissance that creativity was first seen, not as a matter of divine inspiration, but as a gift of a great learned man to imitate God’s ability to create. As Prometheus stole fire of Gods and brought it to the mankind, humanity needed to steal the secret of ‘creation’ from Gods to understand its essence.
Creativity refers to the invention of any new thing that has value. Someone creative has the ability to learn from traditional ideas and create new ones.
To be creative we have to choose to be different from everyone else. Learning the skill of creativity is about learning to challenge the existing, learning to trust one’s idea, and working hard to change the world that is by default stuck in the space of ‘conventional’. Creativity is an essential ingredient of one's spiritual development.
Moving from imitating and copying, to innovating and using our talents can take time. First we need to master the particular skill: musicians know the rhythm, architects understand engineering con­cepts, artists learn about colors and shades. Then we need to open our minds to the possibility of being different accepting our uniqueness.

PLATO CAVE

In Plato's cave, prisoners are chained in a cave facing a wall, unable to turn their heads. Imagine, walking down a long dark cave that is turned into prison. Imagine at the end of it, you come across a wall in front of which on a stone bench sit people chained to each other and chained to the bench and they sit there living their lives day after day not being able to turn or move. Behind them burns a fire and puppeteers hold the puppets that cast shadows on the wall of the cave. The prisoners look at the shadows, observe their movements, believing that what they see is real. A shadow of a book is a book for them, a shadow of a chair is a chair for them and because that is the only reality that exists for them - they believe in it full-heartedly.

And after you have imagined all of this ask yourself: How much time in life I spend really feeling, seeing, hearing, tasting - really living, and how much do I spend observing the movements of the shadows on the wall in front of me?

How many hours of the day we spend passively chained to the chairs of our choosing and how many we spend running in the woods?
