“The aim of art is not to represent the outward appearance of things, but their inner significance”, as quoted by Aristotle.

The mere existence of the concept of creation has brought in beauty in our lives. For some it is the only ray of hope, for others, it's an escape. For some, it might be the source of love and for others, a way of expression. The art of creating is a process of generating imagination and pulling it out of the mind into reality. This experience allows us to connect with a deeper consciousness of ourselves. The birthing of something brings in natural sensibility in a human being. 

Creation is a similar process. To fetch ideas from the inner world and put it on the stage of life is a hard and harsh way but the result is comforting. It provides with a feeling of productivity and contribution to the world. Creating is an art. The best ideas aren’t logically drawn and outlined instead are spawned in the shower, in anger, while dancing, or in love. Art is beyond logic. It’s sacred, a root that holds us close to our own self.

The world continues to study the theories of creation and presents endless conclusions. On the other hand, creation talks about itself in gestures understood only through depth. It speaks to those who desire to listen. Creativity delivers the existence of a new product. It places the creator on a pedestal higher than the older version of himself. This art-form grants access to individual evolution. It’s is not just a type of different kinds of art, but a permanent notion of growth. When creation takes place, expansion happens. It is like the truth that flourishes when loosened and bursts when obscured. Human minds are full of a sense of creation; for we are the first result of one. Creativity exists within, all it requires is a trigger for it to release and art triggers. 

Art is not about an instrument or paints or literature as acknowledged by many today. Art is beyond boundaries. If tried to explain this small word, it would go along the lines of - the soul inside a body; the stars you gaze upon when all hope is lost; colours; music; poetry; light; love; the fine lines of age on a face; and endlessly more to the list. The dose of positivity it gives in to trigger a human brain relaxes parts of us and then produces the act of creating.

Though this art-form deserves no restrictions and carries no regrets, it involves a few integrated elements of the experience -

1. Belief and Passion:

Creativity carries the nectar of passion in its complete existence. It doesn’t necessarily have to be zealful which is often confused with passion, neither does it have to have the fire as described by all. Passion is a form of complete surrender. Creating requires surrendering to it in the moment and make the best of its potential. Belief is a similar component. To completely surrender to art, it’s important to have faith in it irrespective of the boundaries of your knowledge. Believe in the notion and give in at the moment. 

2. Production of a response:

The combined result of creativity and the motive behind the initiation naturally leads to a result. The result should considerably be an optimistic solution to a problem, relief from distress, help for the needy, and welcoming in similar ways. Creativity is addictive when it responds to some requirements and the addiction of yielding is healthy for life.

3. Encouragement of authenticity:

Creativity is the rawest form of originality. Transformation is originality as well but the main motive behind creating must lie amongst the idea of being authentic and true to oneself irrespective of what is generated. Being vulnerable is hard but creating or producing some things makes it joyful.

4. Tied to a goal yet adaptive:

It’s full of art to do something for a purpose and it’s more artful to be adaptive. It’s synonymous to creativity when something is flexible. People fail to recognise this art but just like water takes the shape of the vessel in which it is poured, creativity also shall fit in even the most uneasy places. That gives life to art. And aiming at a specific goal makes it a smooth ride.

It is said that an act that produces effective surprise is the hallmark of a creative enterprise. This art form has been the reason of many lives being saved since ancient times. Studies suggest that practicing creativity leads to overall well-being and boosts innovation in one’s life. Researches have concluded that people in happy moods come up with better unusual word formations, solving dilemmas, fabricating stories and presenting interesting endings, and even developing patient diagnosis.

The creative mind is such a powerful thing that even a blind artist can surrender to it and conjure beauty into the world. Beauty and art buoy our spirits. In hard times we look forward to have a piece of art in the form of entertainment to cross our path, whether in visual form or tangible form. It lifts our spirits philosophically as well as psychologically. Creativity holds the power to change the world but more than that it carries the influence of saving the world. This form of art is so diverse that even if it is not intentionally experienced, it somewhere leaves its impact in our lives and indirectly teaches us to live fully and wholly. 

The existence of a being is incomplete without tasting the Art of Creativity. In a crisp language, creativity is also the biggest exercise of making connections. It is basically combining ideas and showing the world something it has never seen before, or at least never felt before. Another intricate lesson that creativity can embed in inside us is the lesson of patience and delayed gratification. Certainly, it is a process of expressing and giving but with a no-promise policy of the return time. It teaches us to be patient and seek the results with dedication. This is the vastest form of art the world has always witnessed. The Art of Creativity is an art that teaches, evolves, connects, and expresses.
