The Daily Dharma – December 12, 2021

Yelow by Edu Lauton

“Creativity is the food of joy. When we are creative, we express the joy of being alive. We are all creative at the core.

But what is creativity, exactly? Is it an artist toiling in her loft, a composer hunched over his piano, your grandmother icing a cake, your neighbor planting a garden? Without doubt, these are all creative endeavors. But in the Bön Buddhist tradition, creativity is far more than a display of specific skills or talents. It is an expression of our essential nature—who we truly are.
