Ep. 89 - The Gathering Fire - A Beacon Series Interview Ft. Diana Rowan, Author of "The Bright Way: Five Steps To Freeing The Creative Within" from New World Library
15 years ago I was asked to speak to a group of graphic design students about creativity in the field of graphic communications. As I sat down to draft my presentation I asked myself, “What is creativity, and where does it come from?"
This question led me down a track far outside the field of graphic design, on into the nature of reality itself, and I have come to believe that creativity is an actual spiritual force, not unlike love, and that when tested it can be seen manifesting in kaleidoscopic ways throughout creation. If I were going to speak to these students about creative design then I would have to speak to them HONESTLY about the nature of creativity and how design proves the existence of this ordered, balancing, and glorious force. Not only is this creative principle in us, but it is outside of us. When we recognize it, connect to it, and apply it, wonders emerge.
That all sounds fantastic, doesn’t it? And one would think the realization alone would change your life. Happily ever after! Well, that’s not the case, at least not for me. Knowing isn’t doing, and I, like many, get stuck.
Sometimes creative momentum takes a full-stop, and getting the creaking pipes flowing again can be a real challenge. This is precisely why, I believe, special beings like Diana Rowan—author of “The Bright Way: Five Steps To Freeing The Creative Within”—are born into this world. They’re here to help the rest of us get unstuck, to get the elements of our creativity harmonizing again.
Part story and part call-to-action, her bright way could motivate even the most passive creative among us. Because her “bright way” method is elemental in nature, it is easy to adopt, apply, and understand because the metaphorical reminders exist all around us.
As you’ll learn in her book, and in this conversation, Diana is no stranger to being stuck herself. Her “bright way” path draws together the teachings of wisdom traditions from around the world in a fresh and palatable way.
I was not surprised to learn that Diana is an accomplished harpist. It compliments her kind and ethereal tones as she shares what she has learned.
If you’ve ever poured sand on your own fire of inspiration, then heed the advice of Diana Rowan. Creativity is in you, particular to you, waiting on you to say “yes." Your creativity wants to be loosed on the world, and lead you along a brighter, lovely way.
