Creativity is often thought of as a gift, an inspiration. But a lack of zeal, impatience, an urge to do more in less time, to achieve effect and to work less for it gives rise to blind imitation, which has been resented by thinkers, since the times of Plato.

In fact, as Deepak Chopra tells us, creativity is a fundamental aspect of reality itself. It is not the special property of gifted individuals, but an intrinsic dynamic within each of us and within all of nature. Creativity is that process through which the universe continually expresses its infinite self. Creativity is ceaseless and inexhaustible. It is an innate part of who and what we are.
