Creativity and Christ’s Word

We speak of the Great Creator, we speak of Christ but seldom make the connection that the spiritual laws he taught are actually the spiritual laws related to creativity. “Knock and it shall be opened.” “Ask and you shall receive”—these are not mere spiritual bromide, they are spiritual laws as they relate to manifestation…Creative dreams come to us as visions that we are charged with fulfilling. When we allow the Great Creator to do this to us, through us, then we are aligning ourselves with the spiritual power necessary to negate the “odds”. Julia Cameron Walking in This World Page 92/93
In the Gospels we can read many of Christ’s instructions to us. Most Christians are familiar with the words, [E]veryone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened. Matthew 7: 8 Christ tells us to keep on asking, keep on seeking, and keep on knocking. It is no good asking, seeking, or knocking only once because we have to show perseverance. As in the old adage, If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, try again.
Perhaps we get an idea or a dream for a writing project. Then the idea has to be developed. In order to do this we have to think and expand the original idea. It is good to seek the Holy Spirit’s help and guidance to bring our project to a good fulfillment. We align ourselves with spiritual power when we follow Christ’s Words and spiritual laws such as the ones quoted above.
