What is a true artist? Somebody who uses his or her self expression to earn money? No, my believe is that a true artist is somebody who creates from an inner necessity, a burning of the soul, a longing of the heart – and hereby, he or she uses the genius groove which we all have acces to (if we dare) to help to expand the global consciousness to the next density. As Kandinsky writes; 'Every man who steeps himself in the spiritual possibilities of his art is a valuable helper in the building of the spiritual pyramid which will some day reach to heaven.' As becomes clear in this quote, there is a certain promise in self expression that opens up the spiritual world. Creativity heals, and, if expressed with the right intensions, the products of creativity not only heal the artist but have the potential to heal the onlooker – since everything is frequency, it is the frequency radiating from the artwork that generates this healing potential.
The frequency that an artwork emits is determined b...
The CERN in Swiss is the current avant-garde of the scientific world, the mekka of Scientism, the holy land of physics. In a 27 km long loop scientist are playing destruction derby with what we are told to belief are the fundamental building blocks of reality, creating collisions that should give us more insight into the nature of reality and help us to further expand our technological advancement. But what drives this longing to go ever deeper into the quantum world? What promise lies hidden in the unknown depths of the world inhabited by leptons, gravitons, chameleons and branons?
Personally, I belief that technological advancement is not the only motivation that drives the scientist involved, but that there is a deeper longing hidden in the collective subconsciousness: to get into touch with the divine. Why? Because of the philosophical foundation of our scientific thinking, a ground that has been thought out by the great Aristoteles some 2000 years ago.
The fact alone that we are born is more then enough to fill my mind with an awe that could easily last a lifetime. This awe may be the result of going so deep into self reflection that one sees the earth as a twinkling star on a horizon, a horizon that has a strange paradoxical nature: it is simultaneously fully individual and yet completely transcendental. This is quite a handicap, since this constant reflection on one subject does not contribute to living life to the fullest – and this is not what I prefer, I like it when life reaches the level of intensity and fullness that has been so beautifully described by Salvador Dali: ‘There are some days when I think I'm going to die from an overdose of satisfaction.’
Most of my life I have been busy with planning things, controlling things, securing things, expecting things and being unhappy. Locked in a cultural belief system invented to restrict the freedom of individuals by tying them to economic chains branded with the word ‘debt’, think...
Something changed since I started to creatively express myself.
I do not remember exactly when I noticed that the chatting in my head went away – this in contrast to other experiences on this path which where very overwhelming – but since I found a way to channelize my attention and hereby expanding my consciousness, a whole other world has revealed itself, a world that is pregnant with meaning and beauty.
It is in this place, where words have lost their function and all of society’s games have been exposed for the illusion that they are, that the inspiration is felt like a source of energy shooting up my spine. The need to create is so powerful here, that it is almost impossible to ignore (according to Mara, a friend and fellow artist, the Dutch word for this feeling is knaldrang).
One of the things that silence has taught me, is that quite a lot of people in our society seem to be trapped in a never ending monologue – either internal or external - with oneself. A monologue yeah, since i...
