OSHO says on Creativity

Today lets think of what Osho says about art

Creativity has nothing to do within activity in particular-- with painting,poetry, dancing, singing. It has nothing to do with anything in particular.

Anything can be creative--you bring the quality to the activity. Activity itself its neither creative or uncreative. you can paint in an uncreative way. You can sing in an uncreative way. You can clean floors in a creative way. You can cook in a creative way.

Creativity is the quality that you bring to the activity you are doing. It is an attitude, an inner approach-how to look at things.

so the first thing to remember: don't confine creativity to anything in particular. A man is creative- and if he is creative whatsoever he does, even if he walks, you can see in his walking there is creativity. Even if he is silent and does nothing, even  non doing will be a creative act. Buddha sitting under the Bodhi Tree doing nothing is the greatest creator the world has ever known. Once you understand it-that is you, the person, who is creative or uncreative-then this problem disappears.

Creativity means loving whatsoever you do-enjoying, celebrating it, as a gift of existence. Maybe nobody comes to know3 about it. Who is going to praise the floor cleaner?

So if you are looking for fame and then you think you are creative- if you become famous like Picasso, then you are creative- then you will miss. Then you are in fact, not creative at all, you are a politician, ambitious. If fame happens, good.If it doesn't,gapped. It should not be a consideration. The consideration should be that you are enjoying whatsoever you are doing. It is your love affair.
