#1 Creativity as a Spiritual Path

The mystery of being alive calls us outward to our communities, both intimate and broad, and inward—deeper into ourselves, to explore our consciousness, our inner world. Creativity is the boat that takes us on that journey, and it is the same boat that enables us to bring something back, so that we can share our experience with our community.

#2 Creativity as Rigorous Practice

We must know what feeds us, and develop a deep and committed relationship with whatever that might be. Our devoted attention is our first offering of gratitude for that relationship. We build upon our commitment with our time, humility, and our willingness to serve. This relationship becomes a living thing; it brings us into a state of expansiveness and wonder. C

The task of genius is to keep the miracle alive,
to live always in the miracle, 
to make the miracle more and more miraculous, 
to swear allegiance to nothing, 
but live only miraculously,
think only miraculously, 
die miraculously.

#2 Creativity is Relationship

We must know what feeds us, and develop a deep and committed relationship with whatever that might be. Our devoted attention is our first offering of gratitude for that relationship. When properly tended this relationship is a living thing that brings us into more aliveness and wonder when properly tended, and can leave us in despair if it is neglected.
