What Is Creativity? What else can be creativity besides dancing and painting and how to find out what my creativity is? It has nothing to do with anything in particular. Activity itself is neither creative nor uncreative. You can paint in an uncreative way.

Creativity is the greatest rebellion in existence. The collective mind is the lowest mind in the world—even so called idiots are superior to the collective idiocy.
Humanity will really be born only the day the individual is respected in his rebellion. Creativity is the fragrance of individual freedom. A creative person is one who has insight, who can see things nobody else, has ever seen before, who hears things that nobody has heard before— then there is creativity.
Creativity is a fragrance of real health. When a person is really healthy and whole, creativity comes naturally to him, the urge to create arises. We need now a more enriched human being, three-dimensional.
The first is consciousness, the second C is compassion, and the third C is Creativity. Consciousness is being, compassion is feeling, creativity is action. My vision of the new human being has to be all three simultaneously. We need more enlightened people, and enlightened in a three-dimensional way.
Logic is dry, poetry is alive. Logic cannot dance; it is impossible for logic to dance. Logic cannot love—it can talk about love but it cannot love; love seems to be illogical. Only poetry can love, only poetry can take the jump into the paradox of love. Poetry, love, and feeling give you a depth, a warmth. One has to be meditative but not against feeling One has to be meditative but full of feeling, overflowing with love.
Being contains meditation, awareness, consciousness. The nature of activity and the hidden currents in it have to be understood; otherwise no relaxation is possible.
Relaxation is like flowering; you cannot force it. Relaxation is like a flowering; you cannot force it. You have to understand the whole phenomenon—why you are so active, why so much occupation with activity, why you are obsessed with it. When action comes out of a silent mind—it is the most beautiful thing in the world. Buddha has the beauty of being unearthly, but he does not have the beauty that Zorba is so earthly.
I would like you to be together—Zorba the Buddha. One has to be meditative but not against feeling. Action is beautiful, action comes as a spontaneous response. Life needs response, every moment you have to act, but the activity comes through the present moment. An empty mind is the most beautiful thing in the world, the purest.
Do something, man—move! An empty mind gives space to the divine to enter in you. When you want to climb to the highest peak of the mountains, it is arduous. And when you have reached the peak and you lie down, whispering with the clouds, looking at the sky, the joy that fills your heart—that joy always comes whenever you reach any peak of creativity. Activity is when the action has no relevance.
A relaxed person is simply non-obsessive, and the energy starts accumulating within him. He conserves his energy, and then when the moment for action comes his total being flows into it. If you are afraid of silence that means you have an obsessive, feverish, diseased mind inside, which is continuously asking to be active. Activity is your escape from yourself.
It is a drug. When you forget yourself there are no worries, no anguish, no anxiety. If you are aware, activity ceases. Energy is preserved, and the same energy becomes action. Let things drop. Act more, and let activities drop of their own accord. A transformation will come to you and by and by.
It takes time, it needs seasoning, but there is no hurry. You are at ease with yourself. Relaxation is to be at home. Relaxation is not only of the body, it not only of the mind. It is of your total being. The mind should remain alive, and creative, and yet should be capable of moving into silence whenever it wants to.
A real master is one who can do both. Relaxation is not a state. You cannot force it. To go into sleep all that is needed is, the continuity in the mind of the activities of the day has to discontinue. When the activity is not there in the mind, the mind relaxes and goes into sleep.
Only absence of activity is need. And how will come by understanding. Understanding is the only discipline. What is relaxation? It is a state of affairs where your energy is not moving anywhere—not to the future, not to the past, it is simply there with you. In the silent pool of your own energy, in the warmth of it, you are enveloped. This moment is all.
There is no other moment, time stops—then there is relaxation. If time is there, there is no relaxation. Simply the clock stops; there is no time; this moment is all. Relaxation is a state.
You simply drop the negativities, the hindrances, and it comes it bubbles up by itself. What more do you need? A deep gratitude arises. That is relaxation. Relaxation means this moment is more than enough, more than can be asked and expected.
Relaxation is not a posture; relaxation is a total transformation of your energy. Energy is good, energy is delight, energy is divine. Once energy is released one can become creative. It brings intelligence, creativity, sensitivity, it brings all that is beautiful. Energy needs work, otherwise the energy will become restlessness. Energy needs expression, energy needs to be creative. Otherwise the same energy, coiled up within you, will become diseased, an illness.
You are breathing you are alive, you have consciousness, celebrate it! When you celebrate your whole heart goes on beating with deep gratitude, with deep thankfulness—that is prayer.
All prayer is about, is a heart beating with a deep thankfulness. No need to do anything. Just understand the movement of energy, the unmotivated movement of energy. Thankfulness flows, but not toward a goal, it flows as a celebration. It moves, not toward a goal, it moves because of its own overflowing energy. Act unmotivated, just an overflow of your energy.
All traders go to hell. If you become more and more involved in action, and less and less occupied in activity, your life will change and it will become a deep relaxation.
A Buddha is never tired. Because he is not a doer. Whatsoever he has, he gives, he overflows. Be a passive watcher—Empty your mind and think of naught. Like a hollow bamboo rest at ease with your body. Once you are empty than there is no barrier for the divine to enter in you. Giving not nor taking, put your mind at rest. Simply realize who is hidden within you.
