Creation is no longer a unique event that takes place at the beginning of time, or else through the inspiration of a mysterious force. Instead, as the momentum of ‘time’ it is freely accessible in each interaction. KTS 78
TSK invites us to be creators. At first, I associated creativity to something big that I couldn’t reach. Like a work by the great artist Henri Matisse, who used an unorthodox implement, a pair of scissors, to transform paint and paper into a world of figures and shapes. The result is a display of qualities: bright, colorful, joyful, cozy, naïve, light, open and a bunch of others.
This attitude freezes my reality in a certain way, connecting me to the pain of not fully accepting with appreciation the display of qualities of Matisse´s work. Being stuck in linear temporality is a reaction to the energy of time.
When the presentations of time are seen as inseparable from ‘time’, time becomes boundless in its energy. Artificial barriers and borders give way to a more integrated view. Second-level time is time brought to life, inseparable from life itself. KTS 78
Dropping the projection of an ideal creativity, I tried to recall moments of acceptance and appreciation. Then, it came to my mind a touching moment when, with my hands occupied, I was trying to put on my shoes. An old lady, just next to me, offered to hold the objects that were in my hands. In the first moment I had a reaction of not making contact, but aware of this simple act of kindness and the barrier of the arrogant feeling of self-sufficiency, I accepted her kindliness and I felt really good.
In that moment creativity revealed itself as the natural unfolding of time’s energy with no barriers and no acts of projecting. Then, the ever-present potential of second-level time flourished.
