I believe that true identify is found . . . in creative activity springing from within. It is found, paradoxically, when one loses oneself. A woman can best re-find herself by losing herself in some kind of creative activity of her own. 

—Anne Morrow Lindbergh…
Our creative activity might mean bird watching, tennis, quilting, cooking, painting, writing. Creative activity immerses us fully in the here and now, and at the same time it frees us. We become one with the activity and are nourished by it, we grow as the activity grows. We learn who we are in the very process of not thinking about who we are.
Spirituality and creativity are akin. There is an exhilaration rooted deep within us that is a lifeline to God. Creative activity releases the exhilaration, and the energy goes through us and out to others.
We find ourselves and our higher power through the loss of our self-conscious selves while creating–a picture, a sentence, a special meal.
Creativity is a given. It is another dimension of the spiritual presence guiding us all. I’ll get out of its way today.
