Inner art

Creativity is a spiritual process that as humans we sometimes overlook and underrate because we are not normally aware that we are constantly creating. We don’t see ourselves as artists …… or creators. Yet, we are constantly creating.

Creative Process

Art is the invisible within …… and the expressions of art are the manifestations. Art is the Power and Inner Being behind the creative process …….behind the manifestation of creation of works of art, rather than the works of art themselves. And that creative process is part of our life everyday.

It is the waking up and beginning your daily life of thoughts, motivations, and behaviors. You are creating within every moment of your day. Actually it is more accurate to say we are co-creators because …… there is nothing we can do without the Source, Our Father, the Eternal.

You are making choices and creating your reality …… with your thoughts, attitudes and behaviors. And this is art ….. the creative process.

Your attitudes and emotions motivate your thoughts ….. and you behave, take actions accordingly. Your actions create an effect. Everything is connected in mind, past memories and emotions, possible futures and most importantly ….. what is happening right now.

The Conscious Artist

A person conscious of being a creative artist …… loves the process of creating ….. and aware of what motives them in the present moment. Now some may call this spiritual awareness or even religious devotion ….. and it is in a way, because …… we are becoming conscious of the Divine within ourselves.

When we toast a piece of bread, paste a picture in a memory book or call a friend ….. we are being the artist …… because we are in the creative process. And we can choose to be conscious of it ….. love it ….. and create beauty because of love within ….. or slide along unconscious of our motivations or what, how we are creating.

We often create unconsciously with subconscious traits rooted in fear and ignorance, like anxiety, desire and pride. And we can be totally unaware of how such emotions motivate our thoughts and behaviors ….. and we end up creating problems/challenges for ourselves.

This inner creative quality is something to cherish and nourish

We usually dismiss and forget our creative process all together in our every day life. Yet, when we become conscious of being motivated by love and other qualities of love like ….. hope, appreciation, consideration, and compassion ….. then we are in the process of creating reality with these motivations …… and we attract more of the same …..

Then art is not a thing of beauty ….. art is beauty. Art is the inner creative cause within you …… the honoring of love and beauty. In this respect, art and our spiritual journey are one and the same.

“One instant of time, and that instant is NOW, is one of the most precious and least appreciated of all the gifts with which Mankind is endowed.”

Sheer Natural Beauty Fascination

“Buddha taught His fellow beings to love as their younger brothers all those entities belonging to the different kingdoms of Nature, to respect their lives. Thus He prepared His followers to love better their own fellow men, the highest manifestation in Nature.”

Eugene Fersen, Science of Being, page 100.


 

We can go through our day and even through our life without appreciating the grass beneath our feet, the trees that defy gravity to grow upright, or the clouds above our heads full of life giving water particles. Yet, they are an integrate part of our life, and they add beauty to our life. Nature inspires us if we are willing to be aware and conscious of it.

The beauty of these small pink orchids fascinate me and stir my imagination. They’re like little fairies with wings that sparkle from natural luminescence. 

They’re about 2-3 inches across, and most of their petals are very sheer, while the center is bright yellow with tiny fuzzy looking growth. They have an aura of gentle eloquence and refinement. Yet, in their gentleness they also have a very strong presence. Unique and beautiful.

A friend had these orchids in a pot at her house in Thailand on the deck. She said that any orchids she tries to keep outside get eaten by the squirrels! Yes, squirrels any where in the world can be aggravating when they eat our stuff! I suppose that’s an analogy that it’s not our stuff – but Mother Nature’s!

Green Art and what it does for You

Memories lost but residue still ripples life’s pond

Mind’s walls separate, while Love’s bridges tie together

Natural forces take us home to calm and peace, to the present untethered.


Even photos of nature can connect us with the calming frequencies in nature through our imagination and mental vibrations. We are made of the same stuff, but plants and animals live more in harmony with the Great Principle and the Laws of Nature. Everything in nature can inspire us! The energy in nature and Mother Earth energizes, renews us and helps raise our conscious frequency and awareness. 

What we can perceive

Many things speak to me through analogy in this setting. The natural plant growth, trees, rounded stones, ripples in the water and the endless, open sky. The ingenious human use of water, the split rail fence and stacked stone walls, and the reflection of the mill in the pond.  

It’s interesting that when we look at the reflection of the mill in the pond it appears upside-down to us. With water being a symbol of mind, it is an analogy that we can mentally perceive things in a polar condition, dual or upside-down. Yet, we can also perceive both the illusion and the cause, and know the difference.  We can see beyond the substance and feel the spirit and be inspired. 

The benefits

This setting calms me and I can rest in the serenity. Green plants in nature normally have a very healing energy with soothing vibrations, a quality of open living, abundance, growth and love. From the analogy of their presence, they are very connected to the Life of the Universe, Universal Life Energy, and rooted in the present moment of living their soul purpose. 

Interestingly, the heart chakra is associated with the frequency of the color green. With an open and tender heart we are abundant in love, giving and receiving love and life energy. In  a natural condition it is the center of our life; we feel through it. But, the heart chakra can become overburdened with subconscious negativity and become damaged. Being in nature can help cleanse, heal and inspire us because we are emotionally reconnecting with our natural heart state. 

We have house plants because they are alive and inspire us in more ways that providing oxygen. We line city streets with trees and make gardens on terraces. We cultivate an attitude of conservation of our forests, wildlife and oceans. Green is vital for our life!

The gift of art and what it does for You

I took this photo on the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia, USA. It’s called Mabry Mills and You are welcomed to use it for your own creativity and art. Creativity is a quality of Love.

Art is a creative expression, communication and statement. Art also gets us to think, ask questions, wonder. It can inspire us to be conscious of feeling something which manifests in our behavior. So, art can inspire us to create too! Great art inspires us to lookup within to our Higher Self and Love. 

One of my spiritual teachers gave a wonderful lesson on –I am the artist.’ Think about it! Creativity is a natural expression of our soul. It’s a self-help type of thing if we are conscious! 

In the hope You find Love close at hand, PortiaSLB

Are You the artist? Are You inspired in some way by this scene? Comments and insights welcomed. Remember your Higher Self and Soul never hesitates!


Consider this quote to reflect upon:

“…through THE REALIZATION OF THE ABSOLUTE HERE NEAR US, CLOSE AT HAND, WE IDENTIFY OURSELVES WITH ALL ITS POWERS. There is nothing closer to us than the Great Principle, because out of Its Own Self has It created us and IN IT WE LIVE, MOVE AND HAVE OUR BEING.”

Eugene Fersen, Science of Being, page 39.

This scene is so beautiful I thought I would share it with You. I took this photo in Virginia on the Blue Ridge Parkway. It’s now a historic site called Mabry Mills, but they used to grind corn on a stone mill inside powered by a stream turning the water wheel.

This setting is a popular subject for artists and You are welcomed to use it for creative art too.
