We are not meant to think of our creativity as some wild and savage beast caged in our subconscious. That's the part of the cultural mythology that has robbed us of our birthright as creative beings. No, the idea of being an artist isn't an act of ego. The ego wants us not to write or paint or dance or act — or to do that thing perfectly. That, of course, is impossible, and so often we are afraid to do it all. Our creativity is a normal and natural part of us. We are meant to sing, dance, draw and doodle poems. Art lives in the heart, and we all have one.
