creativity and attainments

Hi

I am wondering if when one reaches the various levels of enlightment or awakening do they lose the urge to make music or art?

Would one no longer have the desire to do anything creative?

I can't speak for anyone else, but I was a small time, semi-pro-hobbyist indie rock musician, before I awakened, and it isn't a pursuit I have really been interested in since. It was very much part of the "self" I had constructed, and a large part of how I identified to others.

I don't miss it at all. I'll pick up an instrument and mess around very occasionally.

Having said ALL of that, this in no way means it will happen to you... but what WILL happen is that the stack of thoughts, feelings, and ideas about what makes up your "self' will be seen through as just something the machine of mind constructs. When you see it all for what it is, some of those activities very likely will no longer interest you.

Believe me when I say it's a FANTASTIC trade.emoticon
