Heart Wisdom – Ep. 81 – Fostering Creativity
It is one thing to study the texts or to do various practices or come on a retreat to learn the Dharma tradition, but the most important kind of communion is to experience it; to embody it and discover it in your own heart, mind and being. Of course, the essence of the Buddha’s teaching is that of liberation, that the heart and mind can be free wherever we are and under whatever circumstance. To be liberated in this human incarnation means also to recognize that life itself is this creative act and you are this creative act. Our education is a very rote system, it doesn’t really teach us to think or be ourselves so well. We forget that creativity is what we are. We are loving-awareness expressed through this life. Through creative spirit, we can move and shape our lives.
