The Artist of society, irrespective of what branch of art they undertake, is a very salient component of life in its full breadth and scope.  So much so that they are one of the pillars upon which society, modern culture, stands.

In fact, with a critical eye towards this notion, James Allen, author of the gem-laden As A Man Thinketh, wrote in his reverberating book on this that:

Composer, sculptor, painter, poet, prophet, sage, these are the makers of the afterworld, the architects of heaven.  The world is beautiful because they have lived; without them, laboring humanity would perish.”[3]

The idea of humanity perishing without The Artist might seem outlandish at first blush, but maybe not.  Perhaps the notion is best thought under the guise that, humanity as it currently stands, would perish.  This would mean that humanity and life itself, without the appreciation for what makes life great via The Artists, would be akin to an individual experiencing life without joy.

Removing art in its every form would be removing one of the strands of life that makes it great, one of the very strands of life that makes it pleasurable, exciting, inspiring and incredibly meaningful to experience.

This shows how paramount The Artist is to the human condition, to human life, to society as a whole.  Likewise, this also showcases why imagination and dreamers are so important.  This is because:

“The dreamers are the saviors of the world.  As the visible world is sustained by the invisible, so men, throughout all their trials and sins and sordid vocations, are nourished by the beautiful visions of the solitary dreamers.  Humanity cannot forget its dreamers; it cannot let their ideals fade and die; it lives in them; it knows them as the realities which it shall one day see and know.”[4][Italics In Original, Bold Emphasis Added]

This is why appreciating the inherent ability of human potential cannot be overstatedWhat inspires individuals should not only be appreciated but held in high regard, for it is the fuel that lights the fires of the phenomenal, it is the engine that drives people’s motivation to achieve great things.

With these thoughts in mind, as an individual, you should consider to:

“Cherish your visions; cherish your ideals; cherish the music that stirs in your heart, the beauty that forms in your mind, the loveliness that drapes your purest thoughts, for out of them will grow all delightful conditions, all heavenly environment; of these, if you but remain true to them, your world will at last be built.”[5]

Stay true to them, stay true to you, stay true to your course, your journey.

The power of dreams shouldn’t be looked at askance, as most of modern society does.  Those that seek to trap an individual’s imagination are merely conforming to the very system that aims to do just that, and they are conforming without a second thought.

Of utmost important is the fact that:

The greatest achievement was at first and for a time a dream.  The oak sleeps in the acorn; the bird waits in the egg; and in the highest vision of the soul a waking angel stirs.  Dreams are the seedlings of realities.”[6][Bold & Underline Emphasis Added.]

Every dream requires a vision, every dream requires imagination. Where one goes, the other one follows.

Nothing paints a better future upon the canvas of life than The Artist.

Nothing can, and nothing will – The Artist Is Forever.

Poker & Life: The Comfort Card | #Poker | #Life | #Choices

“A comfort zone is a beautiful place, but nothing ever grows there.”

“A ship is safe at the shore, but that’s not what it was built for.”

As individuals, we all have comfort zones of myriad types, just like in Poker.  Some are good, some are bad, and some are downright detrimental and dispiriting.

Good comfort zones would be finding comfort in a moment, a person, a place, an idea, et al.  Bad comfort zones would be things that restrict the growth of the individual.  Poker also mirrors this notion rather incisively.

As an individual, when my health declined considerably years ago, there was a certain level of comfort by being home all the time.  The predictability of it was something that I didn’t mind since it was the outside world that I couldn’t withstand at the time.  Thankfully, those circumstances changed considerably for the better.  Not that being at home didn’t offer growth as a person because those significant circumstances did give me an incredible move forward, but it was of a different type, a different path.

At the current moment though, I find myself in another circumstance where I am struggling with, though in a different sense.  I have found solace, joy, and incredible growth in writing and its something I am reveling in.  Honestly, if it wasn’t because I feel I am doing something meaningful, the notion of quitting outright wouldn’t bother me too much.  But considering that I have about a ‘bajillion’ ideas (its a word, google it), many of which are incredibly meaningful, coupled with the fact that writing has always been a dream of mine, I find it incredibly painful even to contemplate stopping.

I am a reasonable person, so I do always consider every possibility because considering every path you have available, and some you might not even know are there, is something that never hurts.  This would not be unlike seeking a treasure and not knowing where to go, where to explore.  If you only limit yourself to one path, you might find the treasure; you might find the treasure through a few paths; but if as an explorer you willingly limit yourself to only a handful of paths, rather than contemplating every single path available, then you would be doing yourself a great disservice.  These are my current sentiments at the time regarding writing as a passion.

To quit writing would be in a sense to return to a comfort zone, not a bad one per se, but something that would definitely be problematic to a certain extent, if not an incredible one.

What poker has always taught me is that no matter what the game throws at you, what life throws at you, there are usually way more paths available for every player, every person.  I am sure there is a lot that hasn’t hit me yet, things that I haven’t contemplated, and that’s okay.  Being arrogant that I have all the answers is to be close-minded and limit myself.  That said, at least I am cognizant of not having all the answers and remaining open to everything because again, limiting yourself in any way is like merely playing poker and deciding to play one hand against one person and that’s it.  That would be akin to willingly reading only one page of the book and saying, “Oh, that’s it.  Okay, guess that’s that.”

Life, like poker, offers many possibilities – many of which play out over and over again, under different circumstances, with different ‘cards’ so to speak.  Regardless of what circumstance it is, remaining patient in both poker in life will always yield amazing results if individuals ‘play their cards right’.

One of the vanguard notions in poker is how crucial it is not to remain in a comfort zone for long, or at all.  This is because if you do not grow as a player, as an individual, then the rest of the field will blow right by you at any moment given to the ceaseless and ever-evolving learning environment players find themselves in and the myriad resources available for growth.

What cards an individual decides to play, and what cards an individual decides to fold are choices individuals have to choose, but to merely play one card – the comfort card – as if there are no other options is to willingly keep your mind within a box, it is willingly curtailing the paths of the individual.

Such is not the path of growth in Poker, and will never be.

Life is no different.

Infusing Energy Into The Individual

It’s that day of the week – Friday – most people love to enjoy, so why not try something new?

At the current moment I am at a new place with a friend of mine who wanted to show me this place.  It’s neat (1) not only is it a breath of fresh air, but it’s (2) different and yet peaceful, but (3) something new, something exciting.

Circumstances that excite us as individuals can infuse boundless waves of energy into our being.  That’s the feeling I am experiencing at the current moment.  My friend loves this place too and they feel the same way.

Irrespective of what circumstance does infuse energy into your core being, making sure that your core self remains topped off is not unlike having an emotional bank account topped off with positive interactions.

There’s really no better way to start the weekend than with an unexpected jolt of energy.

Hope the same is taking place for all of you.

Have a great weekend everyone!  Be safe.

How often do each and every you artists get inspired?  By artists I mean artist of all types – painters, dancers, writers, sculptors, musicians, poets, et al.

This thought-form just hit me like a sledgehammer because how often artists get inspired is rarely the topic of conversation.

Inspiration undoubtedly comes in many forms, sometimes positive, sometimes negative.  For instance, my Mom’s health, though now thankfully a bit better, was not to good a week ago or so.  This circumstance made me write more poems in a week that I believe I’ve ever written in a week before by an incredibly wide margin.  During that period of worry, if it wasn’t one negative emotion driving me, it was another; it mattered not, they all led to me writing at rates I’ve never written before.

Conversely, there are countless times individuals get inspired, and the positive instances are the most usual of ways individuals get inspired.  These types of circumstances serve to stoke the embers of imagination many times fueling these embers into blazing infernos where creativity goes off the scale and amazing creation are made.

Whether it is one confluence of circumstances or another, whatever factor does ignite inspiration, it’s an interesting proposition to consider.

Next question: do any of you artists out there ever enter a form of ‘trance’ where you just create ceaselessly?  I’ve often wondered about this.

By trance, what I mean is a state in which creation is literally effortless – you are creating things and so ‘in the zone’ that nothing can essentially stand in the way.  Some may call this circumstance an individual achieving their state of ‘flow’, but irrespective of what one calls it, this type of scenario exists and has been oft-considered.

There was an article not long ago, though I can’t recall where, that spoke of this very subject.  I would like to find it because it was resoundingly intriguing.  Unfortunately, such hasn’t happened.

The point is that, inspiration comes and goes, but how often it hits individuals is one thing that my curiosity beckons.  It would also be interesting to see if there’s a correlation between inspiration and quality of life.  That’s merely me thinking out loud, however.

Whatever you are creating or are going to create, make sure to keep stoking those embers of creativity for inspiration is contagious, especially for fueling your inner being.

It always is and always will be.
