About creativity, what I experience is that I am creative when I “get” something that is uniquely mine, that speaks to me and that in some way resonate with my identity. Doing so, I realized that when we are deeply personal about ourselves, we find also a universal aspect of our lives. To give you an example, each artist is very unique, and at the same time, there are many many artists in the world. So we are not repeatable and at the same time we belong to an archetype, “the artist”.
In my experience, an artist has the ability to create because he/she is in tune with something greater than himself/herself. At the same time, this requires a great amount of freedom, and some passages might be full of uncertainty, while some people ask you “what are you doing?” because your logic is in tune with something so deep that they normally don’t notice it.
