Creativity Bends and Transcends Conditioning

To create, is to make something new.  To make something new… is to create… to bring forth that which has never existed on this plane before. Our conditioning is a lens through which we see everything and which filters the past into each atom of creation.

This is art. This is turning pain and pleasure, joy and sorrow, love and anger into something more. Bringing life to the cells of our life is to transmute then from the unseen to the seen. From the shadows of our being into the light. It’s the same with your day. Today. Now.

Artists bend their past into the creations of their future through the presence of their passion.

Creating Yourself — Transcendental You

Creating yourself into who you want to be is to transcend the confines of conditioning and the shackles of shame. Free yourself to be the vision of you that is so brilliant you’re embarrassed to talk about her. Find her and friend her.

We all labor under more layers of conditioning than we’re aware of. Conditioning from others and from ourselves. Not all conditioning is bad. Conditioning is a culture of the human condition. It’s necessary for societies to function and to keep safe from that which would harm. It’s also necessary to let go of the conditioning that constricts you from becoming more fully yourself. Clean out the closets of your past, toss out all that doesn’t fit who you’re creating yourself to be.

Create Yourself

Who was that child before shame?
Who was that child before blame?
Who was that child who dreamed?

Reclaim her. Remake her.

From this moment forward, you are creating who you will be in the world. Choose to consciously create yourself. Don’t let your life happen to you. You are the maker of your world. Make it in your highest image for it. You happen to it.

This is not “Groundhog Day“. This day has never happened in the history of the universe, before today. If you awakened this morning without a past… no constraining memories or pains, yet with all the abilities and positives that you have now still present, in a world where you were free to create to your heart’s content, what would you do? Who would you be? Who would you become through your creating?

Life by Design

To paint the life you want begins one brush stroke at a time. You’re too busy creating to worry about how many more strokes you have to go, and how you’re not there yet.  Transcendence is to immerse in the joy of creating. The beauty of your day—like the clay on the kiln—is in your hands… it is your vision to construct… and it is within your grasp to create.

The challenge most people have in living life by design… your design, is the lack of ability to hold the vision of your dreams beyond the mist of the morning. Most dreams evaporate into the urgency of the day and the fatigue of the night. There’s a purgatory of lost dreams waiting to be reclaimed and revived.

Transcend your conditioning… break the mold of the past… and create yourself into the person ready for your next level of achievement. Only you can create your art. Only you can transcend the barriers to your greater creativity… and to rise more fully into yourself.
