Osho is one of the most influential spiritual teachers of the twentieth century. His book, “Creativity: Unleashing the Forces Within”, teaches us how to nurture and apply our inner ideas. The history of creativity shows that a creative person often rebels against society. The following three insights will help you harness the power of your creative energy and transform your life:
1. Don’t be afraid to be rebel
The first insight is that being creative is the highest rebellious act in the world. The collective mind is the lowest mind. Individual rebellion is the fragrance of freedom. The urge to create is a sign of this insight. You hear things that nobody else has heard, and you are driven by the urge to create. You are the source of your own inspiration. If you have ever felt this way, then you are on the right track.
2. Learn to look at the world from above
The next insight relates to your personal boundaries. You cannot do anything without a blue print that is free from economic tendencies. The creator is the ultimate source of all creativity, and the poet brings the treasures of the unknown into the world. Your ultimate creative energy is your ability to bring forth the Creator’s will in the world. This is your responsibility and your birthright. You can do anything you want to in life as long as you are true to yourself.
3. Follow your dream
As a creative person, you should follow your heart’s desire. It will be your ultimate goal. It will also lead you to the path of fulfillment. It will give you the strength to follow your dreams and live your dreams. You must be willing to rebel against society to be creative. By doing this, you can achieve freedom from societal norms and find the courage to take risks and explore new opportunities.
A common misconception about creativity is that it has to be the opposite of what we think. Being creative is a reflection of our personal values and beliefs. By letting your creativity flourish, you will be able to do more. You’ll be able to make the world a better place. Then, you will be a more effective leader. Your creativity will lead to better decisions and more effective execution.
At the end of this post I would like to share with you an amazing quote from Osho:
“Don’t follow others and don’t imitate, because imitation and following creates stupidity. You are born with the immense capacity of the mind. You are born with light within. Listen to that soft, quiet voice inside, and it will give you direction.
No one else can give you direction, no one else can be the model for your life, because you are unique. There has never been anyone exactly like you before, and there will never be anyone else exactly like you.
By following others, you can instill a beautiful character, but you cannot achieve a beautiful consciousness, and until you have a beautiful consciousness, you can never be free. You will stumble in the dark night of the soul. Only your inner light can become the dawn”.
