Suffering is what happens when you stop creating. Rather than devise the next step for your life, you ruminate on the last one. Rather than imagine previously inconceivable opportunities, you assume nothing better is possible. Rather than taking control of your life, you assume an attitude of powerlessness. You become helpless. Your suffering, meaningless.
Everything is creative. You are creating cells and thoughts as you read this. You are creating Co2 as you exhale. Every time you spend time with someone you love, you are creating your relationship. Every time you work, you are creating money, you are creating skill. You are always creating.
