Finding your voice

Wednesday, 11 January 2012

"It took me quite a long time to develop a voice, and now that I have it, I am not going to be silent. "
-Madeleine Albright

This is one quote I most connect with. My focus here is more on finding our voice,finding our light of creativity and taking it to levels that surpass all qualms of anything and everything limiting the floodgates of creativity to crash open.  

Each of us are bestowed with magnificent gifts for life! And we were blessed with gifts so we can focus all our energy into learning what life meant to teach us and how we shower that love back to our lives.In other words, what we communicate with The Universe and what the Universe in turn reciprocates lies our real answer!

Creative Energy 
Research Psychologists feel "Creativity has been pegged to conducive environments,perfect collaborators, personality traits, serendipity, and even spiritual muses." And that increasing  innovative thinking,sometimes encourage patients to use artistic expression as a way to confront difficult feelings.

I can totally attest to that,Because ,I think that is how most of us evolved. Trying to express our souls through various ways writing, painting ,singing, dancing, photoshooting, making films and much more than my mind can think of at the moment!

When I was younger, like 15 or so,just like any teenager I had those awful mood swings.It was those very times I let my ideas run wild.I penned poems on nature,love,togetherness and when I missed a friend who moved out of the country,I had written poems of loneliness,sadness and more sorrow. I mean ,the reason is small, but the ideas and the thoughts we impact from it is far from huge.And deep down all the merry poems I wrote or a litany of morose matters that spewed through my diaries,I felt a small pleasure of contentment! I realised..."Oh,I can write!" And no sooner than that,realised ,writing was my vent. I mean ,not now,but during those cloudy days of my life.So that was phase I of my journey to creativity.

"Give voice to what you know to be true, and do not be afraid of being disliked or exiled. I think that's the hard work of standing up for what you see."
-Eve Ensler

Entering phase II ,I found the transition confounding.And mostly,challenging! That was because I was an amateur to blogging, I was perturbed by thoughts like, What kind of impressions people would harbour about me. I never knew then , that the secret to creativity was and is lying in the world of our own.Something you are giving back to yourself. Sharing something you already know but bringing it to life,like almost giving those inanimate energy of ours a voice to speak for itself(which in my case is writing,dancing,swimming and lots more).That is when I gauged my writing through My soul! My eyes! and My brain! I unconsciously & now consciously reassure myself that I  would never compare myself or view my work through the eyes or mind of someone else.

Because being YOU is unique.Being YOU is being YOU.And that's so special.Nobody in this world can stop you from choosing your means to express the rainbow colors of your soul.This planet houses more that a million people.And one brain is One mind-blowing powerhouse.So for more than a million people..multiply! Do the math.

In my line of thought,one needn't be dying to straighten out something he is faltering at.I think by accident( that's how we'd to call it right!;)) we attract thoughts to perfect ourselves.Like,I entered phase III without even knowing I did but it happened!!! 

A creative soul is constantly self-searching and self-improvising! Overcoming the gnawing fear of breaking the stereotyped norms leading to what one can really call "creativity".It doesn't stem out of the known.But from the depths of our unknown.Our soul is an abyss of poems on love,joy and innocence. And our negativity is merely an outcome or a juicified version of our joys! It arises out of expectations we have from people we love.And it is in giving  life to our thoughts ,breathing that fresh breath of cherished life in our thoughts what becomes Creativity.

I'd like to sign off with one quote that'll keep lingering in your hearts and souls striking the chord of relentless love;of Creativity! 

"We're changing ourselves to fit the world instead of changing the world to fit who we really are."
