Truth is stranger than fiction. (Lord Byron)
Artists such as me are usually interested in the unseen and how to express that energy of a higher world in stories, paintings, poems, photographs and songs.
We are not all religious people yet we find our creativity within this idea of a god, and of a heaven.
In a negative way artists use hell and fire as their medium but this is just the duality of our world where the opposite of everything exists.
I would classify us, especially me, as spiritual but not religious. A religious person is called aTheist who believes in a personal God. They go to a specific church and use prayer and symbols of that church during religious practices.
An atheist is someone who doesn’t believe in a God. They are very stubborn in this belief that a God doesn’t exist.
An agnostic is a person who is sitting on the fence. They aren’t sure but they feel that God doesn’t exist yet they are open to the possibility of a higher power.
There seems to be another kind of New Age person who is in love with everything spiritual, kind of like a hippie, a cool artist or a Buddhist… But maybe they can be classified with the Spiritual person, with a slight flavor or smell of grass roots.
We certainly are a group of humans who are at odds with each other. Maybe that’s why they say don’t talk about religion or politics because of the various and usually fierce opinions.
I don’t want to offend any group but as a spiritual person I am for the Truth. I will shine a light on any idea and on any belief to see the truth that is in it.
No one and nothing should be afraid of shining a light to find the truth within. Well, maybe bats and vampires?
One way to think outside the box and penetrate into this subject further is by using two common things between all of us, art and science.
Art is in the eye of the beholder yet it is a feeling in the heart. It has a sweet sensation that often takes your breath away.
That feeling is common to all of us and the reason for that is because we all have a connection to the source of love. Everyone doesn’t react the same way to the same art and that’s what makes it interesting.
The value of art for each person goes beyond the five senses to the unseen higher levels of the Universe where an energy touches us deeply.
This feeling has a lot of power in it and it’s not logical, it’s more of a spiritual nature and a universal energy. I’m explaining this emotional feeling that art gives us in order to show an important aspect we all share, love…
Science on the other hand has used a rather cut and dry approach to explain universal truths. Formulate a theory, collect data, test the theory with experiments, make a conclusion. Publish the theory.
Seems a bit stale, no emotion and no love but within the idea and the work there is the same passion and love that the artist has.
The common feeling of accomplishment and satisfaction is rolled up in the creative aspect within all artists and scientists. Creativity is a quality that blends our common passion in life.
Why do people get married? Love! A common bond or blend of feelings.
What if we could marry art and science into a new way of being passionate about life? Is there a way that we can use emotions, passion and love to accomplish our goals in life?
Just imagine for a moment that we take the Law of Attraction and use this new power of creativity by blending our emotions and passion into our thoughts.
Our thoughts have a unique frequency based on our belief system and this power can be used by us. We can use this power to upgrade our prayers into affirmations and understand that thoughts are creative.
These thoughts are things and the mind will bring them into existence. It doesn’t matter if you are an atheist or agnostic, artist, theist, spiritual or scientific.
We can all use this same power or law.
I leave you with the words of Buddha Gautama, ” What we are today comes from our thoughts of yesterday and our present thoughts build our life for tomorrow. Our life is the creation of our mind.”
