As I was reading a poem on a fellow blogger’s site , it occurred to me that sadness suits artists more. I made a comment along those lines. But why do people create art? Isn’t it to get rid of sadness? Isn’t it to be happier? To make ourselves and those around us and those in the world at large happier, cheerful and inspired?
Maybe, maybe not. I have read that all art is neurosis. Maybe it’s. Though there is a world full of literature created by sages who spoke from the highest abode of stillness and this literature never stirs you. It makes you still too. Words carry frequency of the source from where they are spoken. If they come from the stillness they inspire stillness, beauty and positivity. If they come from confusion, neurosis and dysfunction-they inspire the same.
Choose carefully your words for they have the power to change the world–yours and that of others around you. If your words soothe others and act as a balm to heal pain of the others, it’s the highest goodness, for the world is on fire.
