“Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine, and at last, you create what you will.” ―George Bernard Shaw
YOGA & CREATIVITY
The feeling of wellbeing we have after yoga practice is both the experience of the vital force (prana) flowing through our bodies, but also the palpable connection to something greater than ourselves. This expanded perspective births original ideas and visionary creations.
Yoga supports us to align ourselves with our authentic being: that inspired place where self-expression is uninhibited and natural, where our precious inner voice is speaking. This voice is our intuition, our centre, our alignment with the universe.
When we connect to our intuition, we can start thinking lunarly!
What does LUNAR thinking mean, you may wonder.
Zachary Townesmith from Kula Collective explains lunar thinking as the space, in which we open up for all the possibilities that are, and, in which we turn off judgement. It allows our being in the world to be playful & purposeful at the same time! In contrast to solar thinking, which is constrictive and judgmental, being lunar facilitates us to move from a place of non-judgment, compassion, and fearlessness, and be able to channel different possibilities and new ways of our being in the world.
By creating processes and spaces where we can open up & free ourselves, we consistently develop our ability to think lunarly.
Only when we allow ourselves to be lunar, and then switch to solar (in order to reflect and decide on our new possibilities), we can recognise the importance of CREATIVITY in our minds and the potential of the infinite possibilities that come when we channel our creativity.
When we channel our own creativity, then we can channel the creativity of a group of people, and this diversity that is all inclusive can get the solutions that have the potential of bringing change in the world.
