“Creativity is the greatest rebellion in existence”- Osho

You create when the ego is not on your shoulder

Filtering every word into its cookie cutter form,

Giving a shade and shape to every idea.

Evaluating the accuracy, the validity, the potency of your unique consciousness.

You create in that rare brief moment,

When you are enough,

And you are alive.

 

My ego is…….

A multi coloured parrot that sits on my shoulder.

Sometimes I squint,

And it disappears.

And then,

I can write.

 

I love this TED talk on creativity by Elizabeth Gilbert:

  1. I love it!

    Tom Waits also said that creative ideas fly around in the air and we have to catch them. But if you look directly at them they disappear.
