The Foundation for the Spiritual Practice of Creativity (FSPC) honors life in the most exquisite way. We recognize that within each of us there is a fountain of Life, a wondrous Spring of vitality. If you were to point your attention inward, you would find there is a ceaseless arising of energy: thoughts, emotions, images, memories, ideas, insights, dream snippets, and bodily sensations continue to be born. Each of these inner experiences arise and then, in time, pass away. You may notice thoughts and other inner experiences arise again and again. There is a constant motion of things coming into and out of existence.
This ceaseless change of experience points to the energy of creation forever taking place. Just as waves of the ocean are always lifting, curling over and crashing on the shore, so do all expressions of life. When a cloud, a wave, a breath, a thought, a feeling, or a sensation in the body comes into existence, it moves from a place of no-thing to something. It moves from emptiness to fullness.
This movement from nothing to something, from formlessness to form, from emptiness to fullness is ceaseless. This inner Spring is always fountaining forward and to participate in this movement consciously can be a spiritual practice of deep implication.
FSPC aims to teach such a spiritual practice. Its mission is to teach a practice that facilitates in you a deep relationship with Life. The spiritual practice of Creation Meditation (meditation + mindful creativity) is a way to become intimate with Life as it arises from within you. Meditation sharpens your focus so that your awareness can sink deeper inward, and then mindful creativity allows you to consciously express what’s arising from the depths of your being. The more intimate your relationship with the intelligence arising from within, the more intimate your relationship with the Divine. This sacred, inner intimacy facilitates an ever-more conscious participation in the evolution of your life.
This spiritual practice has two benefits:
- It wakes us up to the presence of God within.
- It fosters the ability to live as a conscious expression of God.
To know thyself is to know God.
Creation Meditation wakes us up to the reverent and sacred nature of Life.
