I bumped into a one minute video featuring inspirational guru Deepak Chopra speaking about creativity.
I’ve transcribed what he said below.
Like intuition, creativity is an aspect of your soul. When you create something it has to be something that never existed before. So when you heal your body of an illness, that’s biological creativity. When you invent something new, that’s scientific creativity.
Creativity comes from having an intended vision and then gathering information and then analyzing the information and incubating. Incubating means quieting your internal dialogue and just resting in your soul. Sooner or later there is a quantum leap of insight which is called the “eureka experience.” If that insight is genuine and authentic then you feel inspired, you implement what you have found out and you incarnate into a new experience.
