Defending art

In these times we have to draw attention to things that are not boring under the surface. The warm connection with other people will be so much better. Give it time and let it grow.

What does this feel like? Does it feel interesting? I prefer these questions to perpetual self-pity or selfishness. I can understand the occasional "I don't know what to say right now." It can be a good sign along with sudden feelings of embarrassment. We are dealing with strong sensations that are hard to explain. I find this exciting. What is less exciting is always defending yourself with "I don't know anything about it." Defending art doesn't mean you have to become someone else.

We all know how to create mood. We are all capable of appreciating complicated images. It takes courage to take a step from typical examples into something else. It may not be a massive leap but sometimes you have to throw yourself forward. I don't want to be bored to death by things that immediately come to mind.

Questions for people who know themselves incredibly well

What is the last thing that genuinely made you stop and ask, what is this?

Does the union of freedom and full potential fill you with excitement?

What kind of mind would you like to have?

Do you secretly crave something you can still take seriously?

Are you embarrassed to admit how much you dare to feel?

What are the best things we do as a species?

What does it mean to be sensitive?

Your mind has a need to tell

Image by Rinta-Perälä

As I'm waking up I'm trying to catch myself. Each day I know I'm capable of doing things, but I don't know what I'm capable of discovering.

I'm so fortunate to have creative problems. I don't have to explain every step I take. Invaluable sensations will show the way. I'm challenging myself without even noticing.

I haven't made notable discoveries in comfortable places. Comfort alleviates. It can conceal everything when your mind is filled with frustration and fear. A mind like that will not accept mysterious nutrition.

Your mind has a need to tell. Unexpected emotional connections develop between things and their hidden harmonies begin to appear. You will be shocked at how much your mind likes imagining different points of view.

I'm awake and alive, but I can't truly explain why. Challenging is beautiful. I know I will be doing things because I want to have ideas.

I am not null.
