Creativity demands chaos
By definition, creative means something new, meaning something that has never been done before. Therefore, to do the creative we have to leave the comfort of the known and venture into the chaos of the unknown.
Being able to produce something out of the chaos takes real creativity. In other words, creativity demands chaos.
We often hear of creatives and even sports people say they were in the zone, and that’s how they were able to do the remarkable. This zone is obviously not our regular life, if it were we’d all be on a creative frenzy.
I believe to make the most out of this ‘zone’ (which for the record I believe is all in our heads), we have to take to it head on, no hesitation, and no distraction. As the famous Nike slogan says, Just do it.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.
I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.
On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
