Always involves surpassing oneself

March 17th 2016
The creative instinct is deeply rooted in all human beings. But if they have not developed the faculties that allow them to contact the higher worlds, their works will be mere copies, reproductions, not true creations. Just as when fathers and mothers reproduce their own weaknesses and deficiencies in their children and call it creation, when in reality it’s just a reproduction. True creation calls upon elements of a spiritual nature. Artists who wish to create must surpass themselves, excel themselves; in other words, they must rise to the heavenly regions through prayer, meditation and contemplation in order to capture elements for use in their work. Only on this condition will their works of art possess elements that will surpass their ordinary level of consciousness and truly deserve the name of ‘creations’.
