Leonardo da Vinci — Miracle of Creativity
The ability to create is a miracle that has been given to the human race. We have the ability to create something that did not exist previously. From our early days in the caves to the high tech world of digital art, humans have had a need to share their stories and express their emotions. Whether we sit around the campfire and mesmerize others with our stories or we sit in front of a computer and compose a novel, we are experiencing the miracle of creativity.
Some of us have tossed this miracle away by denying our ability to create. Some of us have allowed others to destroy this miracle through their words and actions. And some of us allowed our need for perfection to keep us from expressing ourselves. The miracle of creativity is a gift that is sacred and we need to honor, respect and give thanks for what we have been given.
If you have lost the miracle of creation, you need to rediscover it. You need to go deep within yourself and restore the miracle that is your birthright. If the miracle of creativity has died a slow death within your soul, you need to resurrect it and celebrate the gift of life.
The miracle of creativity is the gift that gives the human race life. Without creativity, there would be no progress — no growth. Without creativity, we would not be human. Give thanks this week for the precious gift you have been given. Celebrate the healing power of creativity. Draw a picture. Write a poem. Tell a story. Sing a song.
