These two go hand in hand! “Our sexual energy is our creative, life-force energy. Through it, we give birth to new life. That life may be children and it may be new ideas and projects.” This quote comes from an article titled Sexual Energy and Creative Genius.
The heat and passion of sex is very similar to the feeling I have when I am inspired with an idea or solution to an issue. How about you? After all, this “feeling” is the generative force in all of us. It is the drive to leave our mark, leave a legacy, be a contribution or inspire someone.
What happens when you throttle your sex drive with guilt and unnecessary boundaries? You put yourself in a box of unrealistic expectations and creativity does not thrive in that box. Creativity thrives with an open mind, with a mind full of experiences upon which to draw. Creativity is the great assimilator (yeah, I don’t know if that is a word) of experiences and observations, combining them in new ways to improve a thing or an idea that already exists.
