It is the nature limited conditioned mind to discount miracles. It does not understand and cannot rationalise their existence. In my life I have directly witnessed paintings cry, had a vision of the Buddha and with my own eyes seen a golden dolphin swimming in the ocean. I have seen pictures of a statue of Christ bleeding. Throughout numerous cultures and history many instances of miracles are noted. Wether we are open and receptive to the world beyond rationale the truth is we cannot explain everything.
It would be safe to say that life is in its entirety truly a miracle. For if we are to see it with open eyes we would engage and be present to its infinite depth and mystery. We would not be able to discount the luxurious abundance that life is inherently imbued with.
Creativity is the art of making something out of what originally seemed impossible. What seemed to not exist, yet the imagination dreams it is possible and desires to make it real. What is possible that you have not yet deemed available in life? What is possible that seems impossible? Are the words I’m possible hiding in the midst of impossibility? Are you ready to shift and see that right in the midst of you lies the greatest creative vessel ready to be birthed in to reality? To be a part of a whole new world? This is true art. This is the nature of the entire universe. This is what dreams are made of and it is what drives ever living creature. For in truth life is inspiring, simply because out of nothing appears all things. In a galaxy of infinite possibilities we have the finite being born into existence. To be played with, explored and experimented with. Art is the juxtaposition between limitation and unconstrained imagination. The artist plays with possibility and allows the stretching space between the known worlds and the unknown to be bridged.
The miracle is that we don’t know and are prepared to not know so we can make known these realities that the eyes have not yet seen.
If art serves a purpose it is to awaken us beyond the blindness that ravages our society and keeps so many locked in the confines of comfort zones fearing to take a risk lest one get hurt.
To create, to live is to take a risk. We have no guarantee of what the outcome is and that is the adventure. We have no idea what lies at the frontier of life and that is precisely why it’s so beautiful to explore and discover and to play. To birth something new and to witness with the full spectrum of ones being all that is to be experienced.
