ArthurSchopenhauer, 19th Century German philosopher, held that human wild and powerful drive to survive and reproduce is essentially what causes suffering and pain in the world, and that the only way to escape the suffering was through art. People should either create or contemplate art.
Art is truly a therapy. It is about the idea of self-exploration that can often lead a person to some insightful conclusions about themselves. By expressing yourself through art, you see things about yourself that you otherwise may not have comprehended or not have been able to articulate. While creating art we become more objective, confident, the whole life and reality attached to it goes into perspective. It feels like being in a different dimension, world where you’ve got the power to influence and set your own terms.
And so I feel when I create. I feel like in love… There is that warmth spreading through to my heart that makes me happy…
Dictionary states: creation is an act which causes something to exist. Imagine, how amazing it must be to possess such power, power of creation! To be free from routine and from inevitable, free from hard work and from ‘I have to’ – BELIEVE ME, it is a powerful feeling. Can you even imagine what would it mean to possess such great power?
Having such power means to be able to influence people, to have the capacity to bring about change. For me having such power, the power of creation, means to be able to BE, without other forces interfering. It means to be loyal to myself, to have freedom to release myself from that other self – the torn and forked one, the weary, the loaded one, the enslaved…Power of art makes me agree with myself, cease the inner dispute, it means to be FREE.
Power of ART MAKES ME COMPLETE.
Would you like to experience such feelings?
