When we are being creative, we are not focused on an outcome, we are not focused on how much money we will make, we are not focused on getting positive feedback from people, we are focused on 'being'. Its about letting go of how we 'think' something should be or look. It may even be rebelling against what has gone before, and from that emerges an expression of 'newness', and inventiveness. Lloyd Rees,AC one of Australia's great artists, when being interviewed, was asked, “How do you know when you are doing a great work?,” and he replied, 'I know, because I step out of the way, and allow the expression to emerge.' So if you think you have to learn more, be more, practice more, impress more in order to be creative, it’s not that! Creativity only wants you to connect within, be true to yourself, and allow the 'flow' to happen. Albert Einstein said, “But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it is stupid.” It is truly time for all of us to get out of our own way, break some old rules, take some moments by ourselves and see what emerges.
