The creativity of spirit is simply the extension of love by Love. True Creation is the eternal extension of love by Love itself and by the children of Love. All of this extension is, of course, the same thing since all of Creation is actually One. Now, in the material world we have division and disharmony and all of the suffering that goes along with self-centeredness. Our function in the world is to forgive all of these appearances. We have a purpose to be truly helpful; much of our effort to make something of this world has tended toward the self-centered, to the frustration of our function. Some of us have great artistic talent, we are often awed by the beauty of that wrought by our brothers and sisters. We, ourselves, probably have some abilities in this regard and they should be realized and practiced; but we also should be aware that however great these accomplishments, they are still but shadows of our true gift.
