The Act of Creation

Musicians, artists, and craftspeople belong with mystics in the ranks of shamans and visionaries. All reach into the formless void to pull something of substance and beauty out of chaos. What they do may manifest on the material plane, but their goals reach beyond materialism to a representation of spirit itself. …There is an ecstasy in the act of creation that matches the intensity of religious rapture; both partake of divinity and are gifts granted by the Great Creative Spirit.

–Susan Gordon Lydon, The Knitting Sutra: Craft as a Spiritual Practice
