    In my opinion, any creative work like poetry, for example, originates from one’s consciousness and sometimes from one’s subconscious and not from instructions dictated by a teacher. Some may further say that a creative person has the ability to tap the superconscious (aka universal consciousness) for inspiration.

    At best, a teacher may only hope to ignite that creative flame within her/his students but it’s up to the individual to keep that flame aglow.
