I asked for larger room - NOT the smaller room on right in back.

Do you have an innate passion? Something that you love to do? Something you were born to do? Do you fuel your creative fires? Do you share this passion? Do you understand some things better than others? Are you a secret savant? What animates our inner selves and drive us to do more? Do humans have an inherent need for expression, or is it merely a skill for communication? When does prose transcend communication into the realm of craft, or even art? Is art, music and creativity necessary for civility or even life?

This 25-year old book spawned a creative movement.
"The real power of the book lies in the two exercises you do consistently throughout. First, “Morning Pages,” which entails writing three pages (longhand, stream of consciousness) in a notebook every day...The second exercise is the “Artist’s Date,” which is harder. The Artist’s Date (could really use a rebrand, if you ask me) tasks you with one outing a week, alone, for at least two hours." The book went on to reach the Top 10 best seller list.

Cameron maintains throughout the book that creative inspiration is from and of a divine origin and influence, that artists seeking to enable creativity need to understand and believe in."God is an artist. So are we. And we can cooperate with each other. Our creative dreams and longings do come from a divine source, not from the human ego."

Is there a correlation “between artistic creativity and a spiritual connection with God”? If not, then what is that feeling? Do we all have it? Should we nourish it? Do you?
