Finding Creativity in a deluge of thinking and a desert of inspiration
Everyone has a creative spirit… it’s the part of us that ‘feels’ alive.
As children, we couldn’t wait to grow up and use this creativity in the big playground of life. But, as Phil Collins pointed out, “something happened on the way to heaven.” In our haste to join the big boys, we adopted their rules and values. And what they valued was ‘the left brain.’
We were hoodwinked…
Our hero’s adventure turned into a bad pantomime in which we traded our magic beans for a cow. Our mothers were furious (women!!) but we fiercely defended our decision (kids!!) and pretty soon this cow had become sacred.
It’s time to become a principled boy, get back our magic beans, plant them and climb the beanstalk to the creative life.
Forty days and Forty nights is a book about finding and reconnecting to our creative spirit. Forty is an archetypal number – the number of days Noah spent in the flood; the number of days Jesus spent in the desert.
It documents the journey I took to reclaim my lost creativity when faced with writer’s block. Each day presents a traditional self-help adage, and puts it into the context of a daily setting. In this way the philosophies and expressions of the new age (often familiar purely as concepts) get put through their paces in a real-life setting.
There have been many wonderful books that describe creativity in a reverential way. This one is a quirky alternative take on the whole debate, so hopefully will open up the conversation to a wider audience.
As a side bar, creativity brings with it a bunch of other gifts – joy, laughter, ingenuity, intuition, abundance and fun. It makes us want to jump out of bed in the morning for no good reason.
This book isn’t just for writers, painters or potters. It’s for anyone who wants to think, work or love in a more creative way.
