Creative Moments

Creative Moments

Albert Einstein once described his creative moments as “muscular.” There’s a consciousness we’re capable of that integrates our various dimensions. It’s joyful to be there because it feels like we’ve broken through constrictions which normally hold us back. This kind of spontaneous integration is not so out of the ordinary, so much as it is not a part of ordinary conversation. It is under-discussed and under-investigated, invalidated as too soft or even ridiculed as nonsense. Although defined in psychology as “peak experience” and in physics as “flow,” this integrated consciousness is rarely appreciated for the opportunity it offers, to lead us up and out of our universal morass.

This excerpt is from Marianne Williamson’s book Illuminata. I wonder how many of us experience this flow and decide not to communicate for fear of ridicule…
