The Will as Creation
by Lee Duane FitzSimmons
Throughout all of the ages of humanity, one thing has remained constant; this constant is the innate desire of the human species to create. Everything about the nature of the basic human essence centers around "the will to create." Even when things are destroyed, the destruction that is brought about is something that is created. Because this basic assertion of human nature is completely universal, it is a true absolute.
It has been asserted that "the will to live" is the primary motivation of the species. This concept is nothing more than a component of "the will to create" that would fall under the subcategory of "the will to create life." It has also been asserted that "the will to power" is the primary motivating factor of human existence. This concept is also another component of "the will to create" that would fall under the subcategory of "the will to create power." Therefore, it is easy to perceive the universal nature of the concept that is expressed in the assertion that the primary motive of the human will is "the will to create."
Therefore, with this basic truth about the essential nature of humanity firmly entrenched within one's logical reasoning, it becomes far more difficult to deviate into the unbalanced regions of emotional turmoil. With this basic truth firmly asserted in all of an individual's actions, it becomes far more difficult to willingly deceive and perform morally questionable acts. With this basic truth firmly lodged in the artistic canvas of the creative performer, it becomes far easier to entertain in a positive manner that uplifts and does not negatively affect others. With this basic truth solidly planted in one's intellectual garden of bliss, it becomes far easier to grow many more flowers of aesthetic sensibility.
With this basic truth, it becomes far easier to live in peace.
