Osho advice

When you are so totally quiet that there is no thought, no wave in the ocean of your being, out of this silence comes a different kind of creativity.

Osho

 

 

 

You will have to understand two kinds of creativity. One is exactly what you are saying -- it is an escape from the uneasiness of not doing anything and just sitting silently. The whole world is workaholic, and the whole world goes on driving everybody nuts: "Do this! Do that! Don't waste time!" So your whole mind is programmed for work, for efficiency. Naturally you cannot sit down silently, you have to do something. It can take the form of some kind of creation: music, poetry, sculpture, but this is not true creativity.

The true creativity comes out of sitting silently. When you are so totally quiet that there is no thought, no wave in the ocean of your being, out of this silence comes a different kind of creativity.

The first I can only call composition. The second is authentic creativity. They look alike, and sometimes the composer may even do better than the man of creativity. But the composer will never be original, he will always be copying. Only the creator can be original, can break new doors into the mystery of existence.

Inspiration quotes relax subconscious creativity Vadim Kotelnikov

George Gurdjieff has gone deeply into this matter, and he has called the first, subjective creativity; it is mind oriented. And the other he has called the real objective creativity. Whatever names are given, that is not the question, but he knows the difference -- that the people who created the Taj Mahal were not simply architects, they were not simply technologically knowledgeable.

The emperor who made the Taj Mahal called Sufis from all over the world -- not the architects, but the Sufi mystics -- to give the idea of the Taj Mahal. It was created in order to become an object of meditation. If you sit silently by the Taj Mahal in a fullmoon night, you start becoming silent.

Self-discovery love inspirational quotes Vadim Kotelnikov Taj Mahal

The very form of the Taj Mahal creates a certain quality in you, just as has been found about pyramids − that the very shape of the pyramid is life preserving. It detracts everything life negative.

 

A creation of importance can only be produced when its author isolates himself, it is a child of solitude.

Goethe

 

 

When, in the very beginning of this century, the first pyramid was opened, they found a dead cat inside. They could not believe it. The pyramid was three thousand years old, so the cat must have died three thousand years ago. Just by accident she may have entered when they were closing it, and could not get out. But the body of the cat was absolutely fresh, as if it had just died. No stink... in three thousand years.

Then the scientists started looking at the shape of the pyramids − there must be something in the very shape of the pyramids. And now they have made pyramids for meditators, small aluminum pyramids. You sit inside and you suddenly find you are more alive, you suddenly find more silence.

 

 

 

 

Vadim Kotelnikov quotes

When I invent something big, it's not me who arrives at the inventions, it's the invention who arrives at me.
