The Experience of Creativity

Ask Me About Truth, Episode 54
Swami Kriyananda
November 3, 2014

How can one create uplifting art, with God? Swami Kriyananda shares his experience on the subject, and thoughts on what it is like to work on movie scripts compared to books and music. 

Swamiji also shares the story of his "first song," which came to him at age six: Three ducks in sailor costumes waddled into his dream and sang to him that it was time to go to school. 

Questions include:

  • How can we encourage the arts to be more uplifting and not depressing?
  • When music comes to you, do the harmony and parts come to you at the same time?
  • People would love to co-create art with God — how can they do that?
