Has your life lost its magic, its meaning, its mystical sense of direction? Then, perhaps you should learn how the world's greatest artists throughout the ages have tapped an intuitive creative power that governs the imaginal body and imbues life with a sense of the sacred. This wonderful story illustrates how everyone possesses a vast, untapped reservoir of creative energy - a creative inner self - that's waiting to be expressed in a thousand different ways. Drawing examples from timeless artistic masterpieces, and artists like Michaelangelo, Claude Monet, and Walt Whitman, Sanford Edward describes how the creative faculty functions. By activating what the ancient Egyptians called the "Ka," the Greeks named "psyche," and the Renaissance termed "soul," Mr. Edward inspires the reader to enter into the mystical realm of ideas and imagination. What follows is a set of simple, timeless, transformational techniques that will forever change your life.
What makes people creative? How does a culture create timeless art? Is there an underlying creative energy that transcends the daily, ordinary way most people live, and can this power be tapped to transform a person’s life? These are the fundamental questions that Every Ripple on the Water addresses. Although the modern world seems dominated by rational thought, empirical results, and monetary gain, the way of the artist suggests that a deeper, more fulfilling mode of consciousness may exist. After all, how many people expect his or her life’s work to be studied, admired, or even remembered 100 years from now? And yet, isn’t this exactly what happens to the true artist? Designed to inspire the reader to become more creative, this first of three volumes uses concrete artistic examples to describe how the creative faculty functions. The eternal message of Michelangelo’s masterpiece, the Pietá, guides the reader on a historic journey that leads to the summit of the Neoplatonic culture that produced Florence’s Golden Age, and highlights how women play a pivotal role in activating the creative imagination. The startlingly simple techniques that ensue enable everyone to add purpose and direction to their lives by unlocking the creative inner self.
