Positive Minute 79: Joy through creativity

We are creative beings. We are creating our experience in each moment through our actions...
Everything we see that has been created was first a thought
Life becomes boring and mundane when we get into routines and patterns of behaviour and regurgitate the same creation every day. It is only when we create something completely new and original that joy is experienced.
That is why it is so important to express joy through creativity, whether through writing, painting, dancing, cake decorating, gardening or sport.
Where there is unpredictability of outcome there is excitement, involvement and joy. Joy flows through uninhibited creativity, and creativity is sparked when an experience has an unpredictable outcome.
As the experience is new and unpredictable you have to be focused in the moment and the key to living joyfully is living in the moment.
Joy is essential to living a balanced and empowered life
Joy is vital to our personal and spiritual development. Expressing joy helps us feel our connection to God. It’s physically healthy to express creative joy though our body, too, through our thoughts, words or actions.
The judging and analytical mind cannot be spontaneous or creative; creativity comes from inspiration which is the God Source inside us.
Joy is our natural state of being; it is not something we acquire from outer events or things. It is an energy we release from within and is spontaneous. Inspired creativity is one of the wonderful ways we can release the joyful energy we all have within us.
