If we’re placed on this earth with infinite creative potential, where and when do we lose sight of our originality? In today’s world, it’s easy to get distracted, follow someone else’s lead, lose ourselves in routine, and avoid the creative process altogether. We think we understand how things should be based on our previous experiences, but this can often block us from seeing or creating something new.
Yogi Bhajan said it well: To study and talk is not to do and be. We must remember how to connect with our creative force. He taught us that we can expand and experience our individual creativity by simply meditating on the mantra “God” (gaa-daa). We are here so that infinity (God) can be revealed through the finite (life on earth).
So, in this meditation, chant the mantra powerfully. Come into harmony with your origins and originality. Embrace your uniqueness, all that you are, and all that you can create. Enjoy yourself along the way!
