Free to Create

It is human destiny to create… to be co-creators of art, industry and of life itself.

From the art we make, to the industry we create… the creations we bring to life, and the words we write into existence, it’s all a part of our destiny.

We humans are co-creators of life itself. Our lives.

From the children we bear to the creations we craft, creating connects us with life, with creation and with our divinity itself. It is a human privilege to create the life we want to live… and we are the only sentient beings who can consciously achieve that for ourselves.

It’s important to remember that while we may not be able to choose the circumstances of our lives, we can always choose the way we think about them. We live in artistic freedom… so set your creator free to be all that s/he can be!

We must never forget that today, no matter our life circumstances, we are free to create. Not only are we free to create, but we must create to fulfill our destiny.

Toward your creative destiny, here are some favorite freedom quotes to help keep you inspired to create freely.
