Connections are the core of creativity. However, fear and anxiety prevent you from making connections. 

Fear cannot create. It can only resist. When you do things you don't want to do, you are motivated by fear.

Seeing before creating

You, as the creator, have a vision you have to pursue. You can't see what you're creating, only the materials.

You have to see the elements and bring them together. You connect them to see the spark of creation.

Ego and excitement

If you work from a place of creating what you want to create, you will always work from the true self.

But the ego will get you excited over the possibility of getting attention. You might believe this excitement is the same as desire. It is not. If you still create, even though you receive no acclaim, you are creating from your true self.

Creativity loves boundaries. Boundaries make your creative ability stronger. It forces you to find connections.

A fluid process

You can only see your next move. Creation itself is fluid. 

Every step you take, you influence, and thus, change the array of possibilities for the step after.

Everything is a partnership

Every active creator knows that originality is not worth pursuing.

Creativity is a connection, one that requires more connections. You'll always be borrowing, building upon, and using other people's work.
