''The artist, constantly using his creative impulses, continues to draw from the reservoir of creativity present in his own Being. This is how his consciousness, bathing in the fresh springs of creativity, rises to the prodigious brilliance of natural creation.'' —Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder, Transcendental Meditation program
''Creativity includes art, but it is much broader and deeper,'' writes Cynthia E. Johnson.* It is our essential nature. It is sharing what we love with others we love. It is about overflowing from inner fullness—which requires drawing upon silent inner springs of refreshment.
''My views on creativity were greatly expanded when I started meditating and heard Maharishi's unique and inspiring insights on creative intelligence. Years later I came across a book by Brenda Ueland, who wrote on creativity in the 1930s and 1940s. I enjoyed her exuberance, and her delightful discoveries resonated with perspectives I had heard from Maharishi. I would like to give a taste of Ueland's observations and Maharishi's insights concerning creativity, and how each of us can unfold our innate creative intelligence.''
