A state of conscious awareness resulting from living in the moment is not sufficient for creativity to come about.
To be creative, you need to have, or be trained in, the ability to observe, notice, and attend to phenomena that pass your mind’s eye.
1️⃣ Focused attention
The ability to observe is closely related to openness to experience, a personality trait that several studies have shown to be one of the most robust indicators of creative success.
In Open-monitoring meditation, the individual is open to perceive and observe any sensation or thought without focusing on a concept in the mind or a fixed item; therefore attention is flexible and unrestricted.
