Is it that in the act of creativity that we express Divine love? How can that be? Isn’t Divine love, like Divine grace, freely given? Isn’t it our divine right? Or is it simply and elusive factor we strive for and never attain?
Creativity is defined as “the ability to transcend traditional ideas, rules, patterns, relationships, or the like, and to create meaningful new ideas, forms, methods, interpretations, etc.; originality, progressiveness, or imagination” [dictionary.com]. The growth and expansion of the entire omniverse comes from the complete and pure expression of Divine love and the response of the creation to that expression.This is the key to unfolding our Divine purposes in Divine order; responding in a new way by utilizing our imaginations to create new ‘expressions’ of reality! In other words, actualizing what we were created to be by ‘co-creating’ what is already in existence to ‘reflect’ our Divine purposes as they unfold in Divine order.
The ability to see beyond ‘what is’ is a necessity in establishing a new paradigm. Also, it is the awareness that ‘any’ new paradigm is a flexible, mutable and dynamic ‘work in progress’ that reflects our awareness of our individual Divine purposes at a certain point in time. Time is river that transports the essence of our individual creativity and floats our ‘bubble’ in Divine love. Only in acclimating ourselves to the awareness of the never ending rearrangement ofthe creation can we begin to understand that we are that ‘bubble’ that experiences the perception of our movement through time.
Are our perceptions always correct? Are they the only barometer by which we come to understand our Divine purposes in life? Or are they the small sliver of the greater picture of reality? Just as a hologram contains the perspective of the entire picture, we contain the entire perspective of reality through our inner spirit. Only when we ‘see’ from that inner spirit can we know the entire picture.
But what exactly are we? Are we our individual perspective or are we the entire picture? In actuality, we are the essence and expression of creativity existing concurrently when we utilize our imagination to create new expressions of Divine love. Imagination is the tool by which we lift ourselves out of the confines of observation, perception and belief. It is the tool that allows us to contemplate ‘what if’ from our experiences of ‘what was’ and ‘what is’. Be ye therefore perfect in utilizing your imagination! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D.
