When you as a Life Artist understand the question about the creative activity, you will perhaps be able to understand what people mean by striving after something.
Is the creative action a result of an effort, and are we aware about the moments where we create? Or is the creative action a feeling of complete self-forgetfulness, a feeling, which arises when nothing intervenes disruptive, when you not at all feel the movement of the thought, when there only is an altogether rich and complete being? Is the creative condition a result of drudgery, of struggle, of conflict, of an effort?
We have all noticed that when we do something with great ease and quickly, then it costs no effort, then there not at all is talk about any struggle; but because our existence in the main consists of a line of conflicts and struggles, we can´t imagine a condition, a being, where all conflict have ended.
