Whatsoever degree of right motivation you possess, and whatsoever truth or truths you have actually embodied, to that degree you are a Conscious Soul Incarnate. The evolving Soul consciousness within the more or less integrated persona has two basic needs which, when fulfilled, aid its evolution and stabilize the expression of its present point of development. These are:
1. The need for creativity.
2. The need to serve humanity.
The Spiritual Soul is essentially creative. As it comes into incarnation, it needs to enter into creative activity in order to further its own Spiritual growth, just as the young child needs to enter into physical activity in order to further its physical growth. Because the Spiritual Soul is naturally identified with the One Life, it evolves more quickly and easily as it serves that aspect of the One Life into which it is focused. It needs, as a human being needs food and drink, to serve humanity. These two needs can be integrated into one and fulfilled by one activity, namely creative service, which is actually the path of Discipleship.
We define creativity as that activity which produces an adequate vehicle of Truth, or purity of expression. Regardless of the type of vehicle produced, whether it be a book, a painting, a symphony, an electrical machine, a home, or a word, if it adequately conveys a Truth, it is pure in its expression, and thus, it is a creative masterpiece.
