It is said that you have to drop the Self-Conscious mind to be "Graced". Writing, painting, making music, being so engrossed that you have stopped the racing everyday mind activity Therefore it is when you have dropped self-consciousness and focus on your creative activity that a "Grace" can come in and enrich who you are! That is your Identity and your ability to create.
If you are meditating deeply that can and does happen then too.
It is also said and known that you must be "Graced" to be able to ascend up upon the planes of Higher Consciousness.
You must first be "Willing" to do so and have a good heart.
"I Am willing to receive. I am willing to project. I am willing to be as I Am." Vel
"Art is "thought" in "action" which captures and casts light on a subject, where it's shadows are seen to reveal the hidden "truth" about an otherwise unreal objective reality."
"We speak in art of the fact that that which gives the artist power enabling him to produce works of art or to reproduce them cannot originate from the ordinary conscious forces of the soul, but come up out of the unconscious and then enter into the consciousness. Hence, in connection with the artist, it is so that for him any sort of rules to which he might direct himself to, will become a disturbing factor; he cannot regulate himself according to rules; he must direct himself to that which as an elementary consciousness in his soul gives wings to those forces which he needs. He can, if he wants, subsequently to look back and give a certain explanation of that which comes to the surface from the subconscious aspect of his being. Therefore we must assume that many other hidden qualities hold sway in the soul, forces which do not play up into consciousness." Rudolf Steiner
