The Art of Living and Living for Art


The meaning of “The Art of Living and Living for Art” perhaps lies in how I define art. Art is a language and like any other language it is a vehicle of communication i.e. self-expression of ideas and most inner/deep feelings. Language is an important aspect of any culture and cultures tend by nature to limit one’s freedom in one way or another. Here is where art comes in – it provides freedom of expression without any limitation or boundaries and provides ample opportunity for imagination and creativity.

Each and every one of us has their own way of showing their creativity It is our choices that block or enable that creativity. Given the right kind of opportunity and environment, even people who haven’t embraced their creativity since preschool can be coaxed into expressions of imaginative thought.

“The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul.  No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before.

Everyone can create.  You don’t need money position or influence in order to create something of substance or beauty.  You might say I am not the creative type.  If that is how you feel, think again, and remember that you are spirit children of the most creative being in the universe.  Isn’t it remarkable to thing that your very spirits are fashioned by and endlessly creative and eternally compassionate God?  Think about it, your spirit body is a masterpiece, created with the beauty, function, and capacity beyond imagination.”

Creation is your opportunity in this life and in the life to come.

Start small. Creativity does not require a brush, a pen, or the keys of a piano.

Don’t let the voice of critics paralyze you.  You will make the world a better place.

Improve.  Beautify.  Extend. Smile. Cultivate. Develop. Create.

“The more you trust and rely upon the spirit, the greater your capacity to create. That is your opportunity in this life and your destiny in the life to come.”

-Dieter F. Uchtdorf
