What J. Saw In the Introduction Of It’s Never Too Late

So this morning was my second day of writing my morning pages. Once again my hand was asleep by the end of page one, but stream of thought was so rich I pressed through to discover what was really in my brain.

Brenda sent me some thoughts on the introduction which I will share shortly. I wanted to share the things that jumped out at me as I read the introduction to my artistic reboot.

“I myself believe creativity is a spiritual path.” Julia cameron

“Most working artists never retire.” Julia Cameron

“No matter how old you get, if you can keep the desire to be creative, your keeping the man-child alive.” John Cassavetes

Basic Principles for creative recovery:

  1. Creativity is the natural order of life. Life is energy- pure creative energy.
  2. There is an underlying, indwelling creative force infusing all of life- including ourselves.
  3. When we open ourselves to our creativity, we open ourselves to the Creator’s creativity within us and our lives.
  4. We are ourselves creations. And we, in turn, are meant to continue creativity by being creative ourselves
  5. Creativity is God’s gift to us. Using our creativity is our gift back to God
  6. The refusal to be creative is self-will and is counter to our true nature.
  7. When we open ourselves to exploring our creativity, we open ourselves to God: Good Orderly Direction.
  8. As we open our creative channel to the Creator, many gentle but powerful changes are to be expected.
  9. It is safe to open ourselves up to greater and greater creativity.
  10. Our creative dreams and yearnings come from a Divine source.- Julia Cameron

Which of these stands out to you?

  1. Basic principles … I found them all quite an interesting/thoughtful frame .. and #s 4 and 5 stood out. I’ve always thought that there are many ways to be creative. Many ways to “be” that are indeed gifts when well used. What I’m most enjoying are the morning pages .. what I thought would be a bit tedious is turning into quite a discovery.
