"Creation" includes the creativity you practice in your rightful work.

~ take time to sit in a quiet and pleasant spot, there let the unity of all enter,
~ be moderate, be moderate in eating, resting, action, and sleep,
~ rest in that which comes up in meditation,
~ be grateful to curb your more compelling desires again.
