Rev. Jimmie Scott –
There was a time frame in my life when I carried a camera with me everywhere I went. Capturing precious moments literally became an obsession of sorts. What I did not understand at the time was the camera was simply an extension of my linear thinking process. As I progressed through that period I learned a considerable amount about focus and structure, and how important they both are in enhancing creativity. I rarely use a camera these days but my mind has not forgotten the process… Focus and structure enhance understanding. Both give linear thinking the boost it needs to take creativity to a higher level. Under normal circumstances, most humans do not think of life as an ongoing creative experience. We utter statements about how mundane or boring life is but we forget that the power to change is totally controlled by us. Viewing life from this wider angle teaches the individual that the hurdles and obstacles he/she faces are simply parts of a movable background which can be hurdles or benefits. The beauty is, we get to choose.
Peace and blessings,
