El impulso creativo

Cuando el espíritu dio el salto de lo informe a lo forme, de la nada a algo, de ser a convertirse en, emergió del vacío como impulso creativo- el deseo por transformarse, por existir. El impulso creativo se expresa a sí mismo a todos los niveles de la experiencia humana. Cualquier ser humano puede localizarlo, en sus niveles de ser más bajos –en el nivel de existencia física- como impulso sexual, que es en verdad la presencia o el movimiento del big bang como imperativo biológico. Pero en los niveles más elevados de ser, los humanos son la única forma de vida conocida que está comprometida a innovar y a crear. Podemos verlo especialmente en los individuos pioneros en sus campos, bien sean grandes filósofos, músicos, artistas, políticos o poetas. La mayoría de individuos con gran talento son conducidos por una especie de urgencia, un eufórico sentido de urgencia del tipo “tengo que traer este potencial que veo y experimento en lo más profundo de mi ser a la vida. Esto debe venir a través de mí.” Si les llegamos a conocer, normalmente encontraremos que los verdaderos seres humanos son conducidos por una pasión que trasciende su separada sensación de identidad. Y del modo en que yo lo entiendo, la expresión más elevada de este impulso creativo es la necesidad por evolucionar a nivel de la conciencia en sí misma.

The Creative Impulse

When spirit took the leap from formlessness to form, from nothing to something, from being to becoming, it emerged from emptiness as the creative impulse—the urge to become, the desire to exist. This creative impulse expresses itself at all levels of the human experience. Any human being can locate it at the lowest level of their being—at the gross physical level—as the sexual impulse, which is really the presence or movement of the big bang as a biological imperative. But at higher levels of being, humans are the only life forms we know of that are compelled to innovate and to create. We can see this especially in individuals who are pioneers in their fields, whether they are great philosophers, musicians, artists, politicians, or poets. Most individuals who are deeply talented are driven by a sense of urgency, an ecstatically urgent sense that “I must bring into life this potential that I see and experience in the depths of my own being. This must come through me.” If we get to know them, we will usually find that truly great human beings are driven by a passion that transcends their separate self-sense. And in the way I understand it, the highest expression of this creative impulse is the urge to evolve at the level of consciousness itself.
