Are You Creative?

You told yourself, "Someday I'll do it (finish that book, give that testimony, write my congressman, take up photography, sculpture, scuba diving, etcetera, etcetera)." But then, instead of moving with the creative urge, you dropped the whole thing. Sound familiar? I've found that the human mind has built-in delay tactics, which if not quickly found out will stop our rightful creativity— indefinitely.

But have you ever seen a small child with a brush and poster paint? The immediate urge is to create—and quickly!

I have often found myself involved in an enjoyable project, only to find I felt a hunger pang, remembered there was a good TV program on, or I should telephone someone. The results? I either abandoned or delayed the project or, if alert to mortal mind's strategy, sat tight and followed the spiritual impulsion to complete the work, to express creative Mind, the only true consciousness of the universe.
