Creativity originates from an inspiration inside of us. Often this spark of insight leads a person to produce something that is unique in its nature. This spark or insight comes from deep inside and is connected to a part of us that we may not recognize. This tapping into the unknown, if you will, is connecting with that which has been formerly beyond our conscious mind. 

Where does this unconscious awareness that is beyond our ordinary thinking originate? It could be debated, but it seems to me that this takes us to something further than our everyday mind and into a larger context. This larger context could be called the spiritual dimension or connecting with God. This larger framework is the container that holds all possibilities—all that is manifest and currently un-manifest. So out of this potential we receive an idea or envision a concept or give rise to that which has been revealed to us. These revelations are how we as humans not only create but evolve. We humans are endowed with our individual connection to this greater wholeness. We are woven into the fabric of this wholeness.

Eckhart Tolle says that “All true artists, whether they know it or not, create from a place of no-mind, from inner stillness.”

It reminds me of the story I’ve heard about some famous artist that is said to have spoken about the object of beauty that lies in the marble. It was a matter of cutting away that which is not needed. So it is with our deeper selves, our job is to discover process and let go of that which does not serve us. We are cutting away or dissolving the old historical patterns that are not our true selves. What is left is the core of us; that spark from which our creativity flows.

Leonardo da Vinci says that “one can have no smaller or greater mastery than mastery of oneself.”

Finding the mastery of ourselves feeds the source of mans’ satisfaction and creativity.

I''ve heard the quote attributed to Michelangelo, who said he was freeing the object from the marble in which it was encased.

I''ve contemplated a lot about creativity in the context of the leadership model I''ve been working with. I see creativity as a key conduit through which we participate fully in the unfolding of the universe, to cause our future to come into being. This is my connection to the larger sense of purpose and meaning to why we are here. Without creativity, there is no future.

Great post. However, I am wary of the word "mastery" when it comes to creativity. Isn''t it a matter of letting go of mastery and power and allowing things to unfold?

This post reminds me of something a friend said to me yesterday. We call it the unconscious because we are not conscious of it. But it is always conscious. We just have to know how to listen.
