BREADTH of MIND (Creativity)
As i was taking a walk around in a certain arts centre this other day exploring some amazing sculptures of diverse things that were being created and shaped out of mere and shapeless rocks, I finally came to a great enlightenment of the main reason behind the mankind fraternity’s inability to attain it’s desires…we go around looking for what we would want when we can simply create it from what we already have.
When GOD created man he didn’t provide him with everything whatsoever he would need for he greatly banked on the potential of the creativity HE had invested in his mind to bring into existence all his imaginations.
It’s very unfortunate that whenever the word creativity is mentioned many people only speculate about creating something physically as in a drawing, painting, device to mention but a few yet there are so many ways to use the mind to come up with innovative skills to get the best out of whatever you may be possessing without even using much strength.
Let’s take for instance if we were to give the same kind of wardrobe to two men of the same physical stature and ask them to come out dressed in any outfit of their choice for public evaluation, isn’t it so amusing how due to their different creativity capacities, one of them would surely come up with a better combination and emerge to be more on point than the other?
Well a whole lot stuff is still unraveled on this chapter outline….just thought this glimpse would shed some light on somebody’s mind and help them grasp the mystery behind the concept of creativity.
