Creativity and Learning

Are they for you?


The short answer: Yes.


And let’s start short:

WHAT IS CREATIVITY?

DOING / THINKING/ FEELING/ BEING SOMETHING/ ANYTHING DIFFERENT THAN THE S.O.S.


Same old shit.

Like this: skip.

Now skip three times on each foot.

Like this:

Turn your head to the right and to the left.

Now, turn your eyes to the left as your head goes to the right and vice-versa.

Like this:

Think of someone you don’t like.

Now, think of something you like about the person you don’t like.

Like this:

Sense your pelvis on the chair. Or feet on the floor.

Now, wiggle and notice the shifts.,


And staying with simple:

WHAT IS LEARNING ?

NOTICING A DIFFERENCE THAT MAKES A DIFFERENCE.


Notice that all the creativity created differences.

And to notice the differences is learning.

Learning means: new wiring in your brain.


So what.

The best news is that learning is fun, differences are fun, getting out of the SOS is fun.


Right?

Right.


And can you still learn?

Yes: each example above was learning.


Are you creative?

Do you dream?

Ever notice how they are bizarre or interesting or weird or random.

That’s your brain when it lets go.


Were you a kid once?

Remember how anything and everything could be play?


Would that be a good way to approach sex, or your work, or a new relationship or an old relationship or “improving” your body?

What do you think?

What do you feel?

What do you know?


Assignment:

Give yourself a ten minute creativity/ learning break today and see what you do. 

No hints.

You discover.


Cheers and love
