Become a child again and you will be creative. All children are creative. Creativity needs freedom – freedom from the mind, freedom from knowledge, freedom from prejudices. A creative person is one who can try the new. A creative person is not a robot. Robots are never creative, they are repetitive.
So become a child again – and you will be surprised that all children are creative. All children, wherever they are born, are creative – but we don’t allow their creativity. We crush and kill their creativity, we jump upon them; we start teaching them the right way to do things.
Remember, a creative person always goes on trying the wrong ways. If you always follow the right way to do a thing you will never be creative, because the “right way” means the way discovered by others. And the right way means that of course you will be able to make something, you will be become a producer, a manufacturer, you will be a technician, but you will not be a creator.
What is the difference between a producer and a creator? A producer knows the right way of doing a thing, the most economical way of doing a thing; with the least effort he can create more results. He is a producer. A creator fools around. He does not know what is the right way to do a thing, so he goes on seeking and searching again and again in different directions. Many times he moves in a wrong direction – but wherever he moves, he learns; he becomes more and more rich. He does something that nobody has ever done before. If he had followed the right way to do things he would not have been able to do it.
