The ‘creative Principle’ we reflect

Adapted from an article published in The Christian Science Monitor, October 14, 2015.

The ability to express creativity and innovation doesn’t belong just to people of a certain nationality or in a certain line of work; it applies to all of us. Thinking about the global need for innovative growth—as the editorial on the facing page points to—I’m reminded of this statement by Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science: “The creative Principle—Life, Truth, and Love—is God” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 502 ). God being the “creative Principle,” the only creator, then His creative activity must be as inexhaustibly infinite as God Himself is.

Furthermore, divine Mind, God, is eternally expressing itself in us, God’s spiritual children, made in His image and likeness. This means that qualities such as creativity—and the discernment to know how to express it in a unique, inspired way—are innate in everyone. They can’t be inhibited any more than our relation to God could disintegrate.
