The Ecstasy of Art

"Our paintings, our songs, our stories - they're maps for where we went. It's the equivalent of us dropping little pebbles behind us as we trail toward new modalities of thought. The art is evidence. The art is what we brought back, what we transmuted from the other dimensions to share with everyone else... to expand the parameters of what is."

Two Types of Creators

A little inspiration from Osho...

"There are two types of creators in the world. One type of creator works with objects - a poet, a painter, they work with objects, they create things. The other type of creator, the mystic, creates himself. He doesn't work with objects, he works with the subject; he works on himself, his own being. And he is the real creator, the real poet, because he makes himself into a masterpiece.

"You are carrying a masterpiece hidden within you, but you are standing in the way. Just move aside, then the masterpiece will be revealed. Everyone is a masterpiece, because God never gives birth to anything less than that. Everyone carries that masterpiece hidden for many lives, no knowing who they are and just trying on the surface to become someone.

"Drop the idea of becoming someone, because you are already a masterpiece. You cannot be improved. You have only to come to it, to know it, to realize it."
