The laws of true artistic creation are identical with the laws of spiritual creation. The creative work of an artist is exactly the same work of inner regeneration as that undertaken by one who is striving for spiritual perfection. Just as an artist uses paint and canvas, clay or bronze to create a work of art, so a spiritual person uses the raw materials of his or her own being in striving towards inner perfection.
Everyone needs to create, but true creation implies the intervention of elements of a spiritual nature. An artist who really and truly wants to create, has to transcend himself, to reach beyond his own limitations and, by parayer, meditation and contemplation, incorporate into his work elements from above.
