Seeking to be Creative? Listen with spirit
Wisdom, insight, change and action come not from better thinking, testing and strategising, but from letting go, receiving and listening.
Group creativity appears to exhibit a common spirit revealing itself. The vehicle for receiving this insight or connecting with spirit, is a quality of detached, selfless openness. It is like emptying oneself or creating a vessel for receiving and containing spirit.
