The Creative Process

There can be no creative process without discipline and order. Intention and Imagination are like the chaos preceding the ultimate creative act in Genesis, in that they require the imposition of order/structure before they can become a creative act. It is discipline and order that brings the creative act into being -- that calls it into existence.

So we are indeed created in God's image, in that, like God, we have the ability to impose order in our lives -- to create new worlds from our own being. Moreover, we know from Talmud that each being is its own world. "He who saves a life it is as if he saved the world." Why is this so? Because we are all creators. And each day that we live is a day that bestows on us the power to create our world anew.
