Knowledge and creativity are neutral.It’s how you use it, that makes it personal.
You have a life that is quite different from every body else,and because of your experiencing life as you know it,your story is going to be quite different than say your siblings or close friends. Is it not true that if a group of people are together and experience the same situation together,each person will have his own spin on what happened?
So how is it you have a creators block? Yes i understand that old saying “but it’s all been done before” or “there’s nothing new under the sun”. What stops you from putting your own twist on the “same old, same old”. Think about this….there are just so many notes in music,just so many words to choose,or just so may colors to paint with,but yet…….in the 21 century,we still have variety.
Maybe those creators put their own life experience into their art form.Thus,creating something new. Could you do that? Of course you can.
The real question is….do you want to?
Now i know we live on this planet where “time is money”,but way to much effort of both mind and body is centered on it.Do you think maybe that ideology hinders or helps the creative process? If profit and fame are our goal when creating,it’s safe bet that your creation will be mediocre at best.
So why not create out of a sense of urgency, to communicate and add something of value to the universe and for that fact the world…because it is going under for the lack of it.
Two last thoughts……….
The saddest words whether written or spoken are these….it could have been.
Alas for those that never sing,but die with the music in them.
