Your Pure Creative Mode

Most of us cannot remember the days of early childhood when we were naturally alive in our Pure Creative State all the time. When you are young ( the first three years of life ) you are naturally without question in a pure creative state. Your every action is to explore and learn to express yourself without judgement.

“Creativity - like human life itself - begins in darkness”.
- Julia Cameron


Infants are constantly exploring and receiving new input with almost no social restrictions on thoughts or actions. As we grow older, we start comparing ourselves and our experiences, against that of our peers and siblings. That’s when the trouble begins.

As we grow older and move through the school years, we become trained to think a certain way, schedules, clocks, timetables, schoolwork, homework, chores etc. All the tools we need to get through life.

“Creativity takes courage”.- Henri Matisse

Another thing that happens on the road to maturity is we become acutely aware of social pressures. We feel need to fit in, to avoid ridicule at almost any cost, to be cool, in demand, popular. What do you think that these social pressures do to pure creativity? That’s right, as soon as you start second guessing yourself based on other people’s opinions it’s over.

“Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way”. - Edward de Bono

Worse still, this fear of not producing the right ideas is undermining all your efforts as a creative being. It’s like that feeling of constantly looking over your shoulder, like you’re being watched all the time. You create carefully, expecting something bad to happen at any time. Well, something bad is happening, you are repressing yourself. You’ve become your own worst enemy, self editing anything that makes you feel insecure or open to the possibility that someone out there will not like what you’re doing.

“Living creatively is really important to maintain throughout your life. And living creatively doesn't mean only artistic creativity, although that's part of it. It means being yourself, not just complying with the wishes of other people”.
- Matt Groening

Conditional creativity is the term I’ve given to this condition. Once you start assessing your work against perceived view points, you are restricting yourself. You are creating constraints to your freedom of expression that may or may not exist.

“Without music, life would be a mistake“.- Friedrich Nietzsche

The Pure Creative Mode is my term for unconditional creation. Don’t censure yourself, just create, there’s plenty of time for critcism and refinement later on, that’s when the real work begins. Creating a song or a lyric should be FUN! Being creative is fun, unless you are frustrated and impatient.
