World Within A World

Imagination unlocks truth we feel, but can’t yet verbalize.

Creativity frees us to discover what we knew existed, but couldn’t yet see.

Inspiration connects us from the temporal, to the eternal.

World Within a World

[box options]There is a world within a world – within this world. We just have to choose to see and experience it. The joy is is helping others to do the same.[/box]

I'm a son, husband, dad, business owner, actor and good sleeper/eater. On this blog, I pave a highway for creative growth by providing food, water, and shelter for those wishing to live, work, and play with creative zest.

    Reminds me of William Blake:
    ””I question not my Corporeal or Vegetative Eye any more than I would Question a Window concerning a Sight: I look thro it & not with it.””

      Lovely Jeremy.

  • How humbling and ecstatic to be able to do a tiny fraction of what the Creator did. Even as I write I tremble at the possibility that I might be arrogant, comparing what we do with what He did. But how DOES any artist create, without acknowledging in his/her soul the realm beyond what our senses register? We are in this world, but not of it.

    I can’t help but associate these concepts with faith, which is “the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1 (Full disclosure: I had to ask my husband to cite the chapter and verse, because I am nowhere near the Bible scholar that he is.)

      Your comment was humbling. The gravity of creating is such an honor isn’t it.

      I think that Hebrews 11:1 reference is the best example of the ‘world within a world’ concept.

      I always appreciate your thought-provoking comments.

  • It’s amazing how mch we can see if we just will.

  • It’s all about having the eyes to see, is it not? Creativity is in this way akin to faith: believing is seeing.

  • Possibilities abound when we are no longer bound by the possible.

      Superbly well said.

  • Love your creativity definition. This explains why I can’t tell my wife about upcoming posts when she asks… it sounds crazy to try to describe a creative idea, as opposed to creating it, and letting it speak for itself.
