The other day I was perplexed about which subject to write on, even though I had quite a few of them in my mind. Out of the blue, my poet friend suggested me a very uncommon subject to throw light on. At least, it didn’t occur to me at that moment, and now it indeed is one of my favourites so far. Creativity, whenever I think of this term, my thoughts start flying, and I become so imaginative. The more I think the more I realise the worth of creativity in our lives, which will be argued upon by me in my article. Absence of creativity would stop the functioning of a healthy, a good and a free brain.
Formal education as it is makes our brains pretty tense, fearful and pressurised due to a lot of rote learning. My wonderful readers, in my opinion creativity is a form of education where the mind is without fear, and the head is held high and knowledge is free. It can also be defined as doing tasks with immense grace, and elegance, and calmness. We are the most gifted creation of god, and out of many of those gifts one of them is creativity. Every mind is intelligent just because every mind is creative, for it has it’s set of knowledge, views and thoughts. Creativity enhances the beauty of a person’s mind, heart, and it is the best way to understand what kind of a person that particular fellow is. With creativity, you can win hearts, discover yourself better and the world around you better. With creativity towers, legends, gadgets, fresh music, stories and a better and a more beautiful world can be created and minds can be changed. With creativity, changes can be brought about in the society, a change for the better. Creativity doesn’t limit itself to only penning down your thoughts in an innovative fashion with a free mind about anything and everything. Creativity has the ability to bring honour, happiness, pain, troubles, success and failure in millions of lives. It all relies on how this weapon is used by us. Wendell H. Anderson says creativity involves a leap of faith and confidence – faith in the creative process: ultimately art is a journey not directed by product but by the passage of thought, vision, intensive observation, time, and commitment.
My reader’s, creativity is a medium which will make you more confident and will increase your self-belief and will give you the power to dictate your life if not completely but definitely to some extent. The desire for change, faith in process, and the discipline to work is the critical components in becoming a more inventive artist. We all are artists who can carve a world as great as we foresee for others as well as for ourselves. One requires self-belief and faith to do something like this.
One final thought, ‘Creativity is more important than knowledge’
-Albert Einstein. So, stay creative and believe in yourself, as nature created you with a lot of believe and care.
