The Joy Of Creation

Rainbow ColoursThere is no one lonelier or more unhappy than a person who does not know the pure joy of creating a life for himself or herself. To be human is not merely to stand erect and manifest intelligence or knowledge. To be human in the full sense of the word is to lead a creative life.

The struggle to create new life from within is a truly wonderful thing. There is found the brilliant wisdom that guides and directs the workings of reason; the light of insight that penetrates the farthest reaches of the universe; the undaunted will to see justice done that meets and challenges all the assaults of evil; the spirit of unbounded care that embraces all who suffer.

When these are fused with that energy of compassion that pours forth from the deepest sources of cosmic life, an ecstatic rhythm arises to colour the lives of all people.

    Hi Anupadin

    I’m also traveling through life and dipping my toes into the tranquility of the Buddhist waters. I have considered Atheistic thoughts, amongst other thought processes and have lately trodden the path of Secular Buddhism. I do try anyway to keep and open and circumspect mind. Anyway I was wondering whether you would be happy to comment on an initial article that I’ve prepared at please. Rather than get too stuck into any one path my aim is to travel more broadly through life in the hope of gathering insights and hopefully some wisdom.

    Good luck on your own spiritual journey.

    Kind regards
