Is there a peak of creativity?
Q : Is there a peak of creativity or is it an endless flow?
Don’t measure creativity with a scale, a child when makes house on the bank of river from a sand. When the child is making that sand-house, and when that child finishes up, the last touches to this sand-house, have you seen that proud feeling coming on that face, and the beaming smile and he goes yelling, calling his parents, see, see what I have made. If someone makes a hundred storeyed building, and that man, that architect feels so proud, see my building. What’s the difference when a child makes a sand-house! You cannot measure creativity in these levels. There aren’t any the peaks or the lows or the highs, because this kind of comparison, this kind of calculation is too worldly. We should learn to live our life in appreciating anything and everything, which is done with precision.
I’ve heard the story once Bullehshah was surrounded by very unruly bullies, and they started abusing him and Bullehshah was old man with a very fragile body so, but natural cannot fight back with those young, handsome but goons. So Bullehshah was kept on listening everything, finally they had this feeling that he is not saying anything back to us. He said are you deaf! Why aren’t you replying to us!
Bullehshah giggled and said, I was just enjoying the rhyme of your "abuses”, what a rhyme, what a way, you have a wonderful way, so my request is can we do this everyday, is it possible that you meet me everyday in morning or evening, or whenever you say, I can reach out to you, and I would like to listen. Your vocal cord is so open and your pitch is marvellous. I have never ever heard anyone who can yell at such a higher pitch. Now what would you say this, If you can see creativity in someone’s abuses! There are not any peaks or low, we can only say that sometimes the spark of the creativity is small and sometimes the spark is very big, but every spark has the capacity to burn-out. Even a small flame of a match-stick is very thin and small, but little flame on the head of this match stick can burn the whole city, creativity is like that. It is just a spark, it’s the spark which has the capacity to be a huge fire.Gurumaa
