Creativity is simply an expression of the self – the highest self that is, the part of us that is pure Source energy. And since we are all born as the physical embodiment of this, not only is creativity our birthright – but we are born to create.– Ruby Warrington, The Numinous
Once Upon A Time
Brahma, the supreme god in the triad of Hindu gods, created a rather boring, and blah universe. As his version completely lacked structure and form, he decided he needed a little backup. And so, he created Saraswati as the embodiment of knowledge and wisdom.
As soon as the goddess emerged from his mouth, she began to give him divine guidance on how to create order in the cosmos. She added the Moon, stars, and the Sun in all its glory.
Later, she married Brahma, however it wasn’t a happy marriage to say the least. Brahma didn’t appreciate Saraswati’s tardiness to ritual, and so he created another wife.
When Saraswati found out, she was naturally furious. Fuming with rage, Saraswati cursed Brahma, so humans would never worship him again.
Saraswati, the goddess of knowledge, art and music, teaches us that the path to ingenious creativity is through the pursuit of mastery. Whether you’re an artist, dancer, musician, or writer, mastering your craft requires a full immersion of body, mind, and spirit. You must have an insatiable curiosity and hunger to learn to discover every aspect of your domain. And remember, the path to mastery is never ending, so keep at it and enjoy the ride!
