My Views on Creativity:
A person needs to tag herself/himself as a free being to be identified as ‘creative’.
I realized that an intense must burn within, which will nurture the creative instinct, residing inside. One cannot classify the ‘kind’ of pain, that must occur in a human life to ignite creativity. Generally, we declare ourselves to be in pain when, things we thrive for, do not occur to us, for the time being, or ever. Thereby, an emptiness happens to chase us and we try to get rid of it. We try to come out of the uncertainty. Maybe, in such suffocating situation, we end up finding a free world where nothing really matters.
We mind being judged by others, but somewhere, in our subconscious mind, we constantly judge and upgrade ourselves. Somehow, with our constant process of judgment and up gradation, we want to place ourselves in a better place, of our lives. We develop our self-belief, self- confidence and leap for something better. We dedicatedly improve or upgrade ourselves to be one of the deserving beings; for a better life. In short, we wish for something, which we believe is best for us. But sometimes, our dreams and expectations become very expensive. Hence, we and the people who support us (parents, friends, and well-wishers), fail to afford it at the right time. Maybe, then comes a time, when we fail to reach our point of satisfaction, in life. This situation becomes unacceptable and creates a depression all around us. We hover around the darkness to find a solution, to fix our situation.
Creativity is a refreshment in utmost dark phases of life and, for me, it works like a medication. I wonder, how a person can be creative when contented! There must be an emptiness present behind every creation. Maybe, in few cases, there had been a dark phase, in the past, which inspires a creator. In the later case, a person should not let go of her/his past, to preserve the creative bone, within.
Every creative person needs to live in a free world where, they care about nothing, except the thing that keeps them alive; their creation. There arises a time when it becomes very difficult to understand them since they prefer solidarity. They love to be with people, but not always. Maybe, under certain circumstances, the love their lives become the deepest source of inspiration for which, they become over expressive. The saddest part comes when they are misjudged. Anyhow, someone should know that, a creative person is usually soft-hearted; even though exceptions always remain. This is my observation and nothing else. I am not claiming to be creative but I definitely wish to reach the extreme end of the free world, one day, through my negligible capabilities, which needs up gradation of course.
