Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov tells us that the notion of creation is the very quintessence of his Teaching. Everyone needs to create, but true creation implies the intervention of elements of a spiritual nature. All artists who really and truly want to create have to transcend themselves, to reach beyond their own limitations and, through prayer, meditation and contemplation, incorporate into their work elements from above.
We find, therefore, that the laws of true artistic creation are identical to the laws of spiritual creation. The creative work of an artist is exactly the same work of inner regeneration as is undertaken by anyone who is working spiritually. Just as an artist uses paint and canvas, clay or bronze to create a work of art, so a spiritual person uses the raw materials of his or her own being in striving for inner perfection.
