THERE’S MORE TO DESIRE THAN CREATIVITY
‘OPEN HEAVENS INSPIRED’
I cant remember when exactly I picked this sentence from one of my favorite book that I read daily, specifically, a daily devotional book (Open Heavens) by my role model, Pastor. E.A. Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, the General Overseer.
I always thought that there is more to Creativity than Desire but when I came across this sentence, something in me asked a question, which is, What will happen when the wealth of Creativity loses her fuel, her passion for expression? My answer was, Creativity will stop or get drained because passion has been killed. Passion is quite synonymous to Desire.
WHAT IS DESIRE?
According to me, Desire is a strong will to have something despising the cost. If that is accurate then it is the best fuel for Creativity. Anyone can be Creative but it takes much rigor to sustain Desire.
My fellow Creative writers, some of you may agree and others, disagree. It’s good, I’m open to many opinions but you may want to agree with me that if you Desire, your Creativity will not stand the test of time. I believe it is the reason why many of us are still bloggers and are dedicated to Writing.
ATTACHMENTS TO DESIRE IS A DANGEROUS AFFAIR
There is always a source that each of us draw our inspiration from, mine is the HolySpirit. I can advise you to draw your inspiration from Him as well, He is the greatest and endless source of Writing and great idea inspiration. If this is the only attachment I can advise you to have, then it will be dangerous for you not to have Him beside you when you are typing. Other attachments can be classified dangerous if not well managed…
Emotions, Feelings, Thoughts, Logical Facts, Environment, Atmosphere and several other things…
All these factors and many more are good but we often do not know their purpose. The purpose of our Feelings and Emotions most times is to be used as a channel and not a Source. We quickly assume that that these stated factors are our source, but it is not.
WHAT SHOULD BE THE SOURCE OF YOUR DESIRE
Your Source will only relate with your Desire and not your Feelings or Emotions or Logical Reasoning. Your channels through which your Desire should bring in the spring of your Source straight to your intellect and to your fingers should be the HolySpirit. Without Him, you can do nothing.
