Being creative and saying your prayers

Most people enjoy being creative. We know full-well that being creative contributes to us remaining happy and balanced. I notice in many things we watch on TV how casually religion is dismissed as a source of well-being, self-realization, service for others, compassion and the like. I find that there is a significant overlap between creativity and spirituality. I don’t mean they are the same. Nor do I mean they are only to do with different interpretations. But I do think that persisting with being creative and saying your own prayers [worship, meditation, the practice of mindfulness] are important. Some forms of being creatine encourage us to share with others – hence putting my poems on the website and more recently adding ‘4 drawings linked perhaps by colour.’ We hope you will click on ‘Art’ and have a look.
