    Aug 11 2011: Every living creature is given this blessed ability - to be creative. Even though this ability can be developed by one to some various degree, creativity is an inborn gift for the sake of one's life and its continuity.

    For the reason that our sensory perceptions are greatly limited and extremely crude ( no telescopes or microscopes, or spaceships can dramatically augment our old mind's perceptions) many of us believe that we can see the same sun every day, the same people, live in the same house, calculate the very same identical numbers, or can feel exactly as others - it is a great illusion. Our most refined research and calculations are only grand approximations, that cannot keep up with the magnificent nature's change.

    Whether we comprehend this blessed opportunity or not -- we are new in every moment, so is the world around us.

    Creativity is a gift that is given to every living form for the sake of its survival and evolution.

  • Aug 10 2011: the gift of thinking, how can we enjoy anything if not by thinking of it, feelings, pictures, food, nothing can make a sense if the brain don't work a little, at least to make you "see" "taste" "touch".......
