Ever taken a job because you were panicking about how you were going to make the rent or the car payment, or feed the beautiful fluffy cat you have as a friend? That job came along, I knew it was a necessity, but felt it was just not what I was to be doing. It was fun, I got to lead hiking trips, set up craft classes, help kids make fun things. . . but it paid less than unemployment does. Think of that statement. . . the Arts pay less than unemployment. Something tragically wrong with that. The Arts, the creative ventures in everyone’s life that enhances their sense of spirit, blossoms their way of seeing the world into a multi-layered rose of incredible beauty, and gives one the belief that you are special. Because no one can create something exactly as you do. Create being the operative word here, not copying, but creating.
We are never so close to The Universe, to God, to the Force, to Spirit as when we create. Create something everyday. Whether a beautiful sandwich, or a lyrical poem, or a wild sculpture, it all feeds your Soul. Make yourself happy. . . make art.
