Today in my community thousands of children returned to school for the beginning of a new school year.
I wonder today how many of those children were excited about returning to school? How many of them were ready for a new year and the possibilities of change?
I am concerned about our children. Many of them will not be motivated to change or to dream. They will not be challenged to create or do innovative things that will reveal their creative spark and creative DNA in them.
As much as I love education and I celebrate educators all over the United States and throughout the world I know that we need a real change in our educational system, a paradigm shift and a merging of education and creativity.
Today I am sharing with you a video from one of the New Thought Leader in the field of education. He is Sir Ken Robinson and in this video Sir Ken ask the question, “DO SCHOOLS KILL CREATIVITY?”
Some of the greatest quotes that Sir Ken said was, “All children are born artist.”
“We are educating people out of their creativity.”
“We don’t grow into creativity, we grow out of creativity.”
After hearing Sir Ken on this video it strengthened my resolve to take my message of Creative Awakening to everyone who needs it. When you awaken to your creative self, because you were created in the image of God to create, you are returning to who you always was.
Encourage yourself and encourage every child in your life to create. Not to conform to this world but be the original person God created you to be.
