The Real Artist
Real art is seldom found, for there are very few artists in the world – and both the system and public fail to recognise the value. This is so by design.
Real art comes from the artists that has at heart a commitment for creating a better world. The common people call him a ‘dreamer’ – but he knows it is the others that are perpetuating the nightmare.
The heart is the symbol of Life – not love. The Earth is the giver of Life. Earth and Heart are the same: see the letters? You find ‘art’ in ‘heart‘ and in ‘earth’. Therefore, if an artists does not have at heart that which matters – as the matter of Earth, the giver of Life – then it is not real art…. It is just skill and, more often than not, a desire to be famous.
Having skill but failing at having the interest of what is best for all Life at heart will stop real art from ever being born. This is why there are so many ‘hit songs’: they hit the customer with the skill that they are accustomed to and, as soon as it arrived, it is killed and forgotten.
The ‘hit single’: hits one single time and dies. There is no art, just skill.
Singing or playing an instrument with emotion is also not art. The ‘devil’ is the king of emotions, for ‘he’ has deceived ‘Eve’ with emotion – and now all the sons and daughters of ‘Eve’ believe that emotions are what ‘makes us humans’, and that emotions are the great reason for living. This is not true. Life exists beyond emotions. ‘Emotion’ is just the motion of energy between a positive and a negative polarity. Energy is not Life. Energy is a Life fragmented, broken – and that is why, in a world where energy is ‘God’, the world is utterly broken, as everyone is moving between happy states (positive) and sad states (negative) – represented by the money system, where people move between cycles of ‘credit’ (positive) and ‘debt’ (negative). This system is unsustainable, and it will eventually collapse once the ‘energy’ has run out. In this reality of finite resources, we cannot endlessly consume. Emotions are not sustainable for the same reasons – and do not make us ‘humans’, it makes us zombies. When will we stop to see and realise the lie that we exists as?
Real art is Expression. Real art is Expressive – not emotive. The motive, or purpose, is not the ego of man that drowns in emotion – but rather the expression of Life; the expression of what Life on this Earth can be – if only we wake up from our delusional existence.
The real Artist will, therefore, express Life – not only within his art but also within his living application: who he is within his thought, word, and deed. The real Artists transforms his living into art: the Art of Living as Life. Lao Tzu was an artist. Jesus was an artist.
Making music, painting, sculpting… This just takes skill and it does not make an Artist. The real artist is a force for change – a force for a world that is best for all. He will think, will speak, will write, and will do whatever it takes to turn this planet into a heaven for all. This is what the real Artist has at heart: an Earth that is a Piece of Art, for All.
