You might be mistaken in thinking that this "awareness" is isolated to artists. I hope in my heart of hearts it is not.
What you are talking about is creative awareness. Everyone has access. It applies to everyones abilities whether or not they do music and art, act or
dance. Choice is the personal key. You can use creative awareness to express an idea, emotion or whatever as an artist, but it only seems artists have
such ability because of some cultural and historic and societal structures.
Everyone has creative ability, should and are using it. Finding a new path through the city to work is creative. Finding new recipes for your family
meals is creative. Designing a flower or vegetable garden is creative. Solving plumbing problems or electrical wiring, or new ways of improving or
making beauty through engineering, architecture, and there as many ways of employing creativity as there are people. Name it, and you can see how
creative awareness is applicable and improves the world for all. Not just artists. That is an ego trap.
Where creative awareness is not employed, expect entropy.
The best creative people are not necessarily artists. Some are scientists, medical doctors and even your therapist. We all have to think on our feet
to survive. If you are not challenged, you are waiting for death. Here is an idea of what creative awareness is.
Everything in the universe is connected intimately. Non Locality
is not just an effect, it is a
condition of consciousness and all matter and energy.
But not just things.
Connections exist for ideas too. Asking a question really connects you to the answer at a quantum level. Whatever awareness is, it is also connected
to all things, time, space, energy and every experience. Einstein said that if you can ask a question correctly, you can find an answer, but he had
problems with Quantum Mechanics, so might not actually have meant that as being referenced in his statement. But it was true.
The best creatives can throw away the dial on their radio (so to speak), and slide to the station they need without much process. For some, ideas
stream in constantly for anything they think or experience or for no reason at all. Others have to try hard. Still others try too hard. Many of the
greatest feats of creativity happened when the discoverer stopped trying. Effort seems to be a problem some times. It flows with you.
I'm not a big Einstein guy, but the story goes that he worked on the problem of relativity for a long time, crunching equations, thinking, imagining
and such for months and years. When he saw the vision In his sleep. Einstein is quoted as saying this about the discovery: "A storm broke loose in my
mind and with it came the answers." A friend had later said: "He has tapped into gods' thoughts and tuned into the master plan for the
Francis Crick, the Nobel Prize-winning father of modern genetics, was under the influence of '___' when he first deduced thedouble-helix structure of
DNA. That was a profound creative act of discovery. The '___' helped him loose the linear structures in his scientific mind and it became clear to
him. He let go to it, like a Jazz artist lets go to the music he/she is playing off and with other artists.
Artist are not different from anyone else. It just seems that way for how exposed their work is and it's context being more exalted in our culture,
but in reality we would be doomed if that were true.
I should know. I was born an artist and have worked professionally as an artist my whole life. I learned in my 56 years to use creative awareness for
more than just music and art. We all "channel" creative for everything we do, if we are doing it to our best ability.
Artist are a good example of creativity and connectedness to the universal mind, but it stops there. It is all our responsibility to use such creative
awareness for all we do in our lives.
We all have creative awareness. Please use it whomever you are and whatever you do. Art or finding world peace.
