The poetic books of the bible inspire us to co-creativity.
For you formed my inward parts;
you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well. Psalm 139: 13-14
The Poetic Light Bearer
The Sacred Father/Mother (God) in their wisdom teachings had much to say about creation, co-creation, destruction and renewal. Giving thanks, praise and finding numerous ways to experience and remember the God spark within yourself is to reflect it out into the world and also reflect it back unto yourself.
Creating things in your mind and in your world to reflect this divine light is vital. These could be simple altars, sacred spaces, beautiful sacred objects, or it could be the act of burning incense, playing beautiful music, doing a daily practice of meditation, oracle readings, praying, conscious dancing or art of any kind.
Choose whatever it is that helps you honor the light and reinforces it as an authentic presence within your being.
Through regular practice a radiance will be ignited and its flames fanned within. Your poetic soul becomes a lighthouse to help others find their way.
Amplifying the inner light is a way to tap into your creative consciousness. Then, what you generate in this world through your thoughts and actions is what you actually are inspired to share.
Anything that increases hope, goodwill, happiness and peace in this world is worthy.
There are many stories around the world of a God, who created man, which did not please him. So He destroyed man with a flood in order to start again. This story is told in the bible also. This symbolism speaks of allowing your creative ideas to evolve. You do not need to be scared to let things fade away, to wash everything clean and to start afresh with new creative intentions. You can do this daily through prayer and other ways of honoring and strengthening the inner light of the co-creative spirit.
Poetic Books and Worship
The poetic books of the Bible show us that the talents that are endowed to us should be used in worship. They should be used to praise, to plead our case, to express our love, to give thanks, and to ask for understanding.
The poetic books are examples of mankind’s heartfelt love for God.
The poetry is evidence of going the extra mile, of wanting to put your best foot forward no matter the circumstance. Every great work, every big accomplishment has been brought into manifestation through holding to the vision.
Poetry at the Grandest Soul Level
No one is commissioned to use their talent only for praise but it is important to understand that excellence is nurtured whenever you reach out to please God. You can then take the results of your prowess and make your way better in the world. With the ability of a strong mind you can broadcast your thoughts and feelings very clearly. Perhaps more clearly than many people around you. This will put you in a position and purpose of spiritual influence and poetic co-creation at the grandest soul level.
When in the creative mode, it is essential that you bring your mind and way of being back to the light many times a day through meditation.
If you get into a dark mood, it doesn't only affect you. It may well bring down many others. Even if you are alone, hiding from the world under a bundle of blankets, your darkness doesn't go unnoticed, unfelt. The more you grow spiritually, the more your own states of being will have an impact in and on this world.
Your Own Brand of Authenticity
This doesn't mean that you need to fear your own darkness. Rather, when it arises within you, your job is to recognize it and work through it without delay. You can minimize the amount of time and space that you give unbalanced darkness in your own soul.
Also, you can practice your own brand of authenticity by bringing yourself back to the light. There is no magic in this. It is an ability born of practice. It is poetic in its nature.
The discipline to practice this comes from a desire to be in the light. You can choose to be in the light for whatever reason. It could be simply that it feels good or that it connects you to God and you like that feeling. It may be that being happier makes you more attractive and magnetic to what you want to experience. Or you may want to brighten up someone's day and not darken their mood with your own. You may want to show gratitude to God without the stain of negativity. The point is, that you can figure out your best motivations to be in the light. Then you can practice putting yourself there again and again.

Meditation: Creativity and Imagination Activation
Choose an affirmation and repeat several times daily, or during meditation.
- I let my natural creativity run free without judgement.
- The more I indulge my creativity, the more creative I become.
- Creative solutions and ideas come to me frequently and at perfect times.
Close your eyes and relax your body by taking several slow, deep breaths. Think of either a situation that has already occurred that you wished had gone differently, or an upcoming situation. For the past situation, imagine how you would have liked it to have unfolded. What would you or others have said or done differently?
This is not to dwell on what you can’t change, but to train your imagination to creatively prepare you for similar situations in the future. For an upcoming situation, imagine how you would like it to play out, like a scene in a movie. Not to fixate on a specific outcome or try to control it, but to stimulate positive possibilities.
Your brain doesn’t always know if what it is imagining is real or pretend. Don’t be surprised if sometimes, things happen just as you imagined them.
Make a list of all the creative things you like to do and make sure you incorporate at least one into your life on a regular basis.
Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things.Steve Jobs
