Art Is More Than Divine

From Google: divine

…of or relating to a god, especially the Supreme Being. addressed, appropriated, or devoted to God or a god; religious; sacred: divine worship. proceeding from God or a god: divine laws; divine guidance. godlike; characteristic of or befitting a deity: divine magnanimity. heavenly; celestial: the divine kingdom.

Divine is a favorite feeling here, something we seek constantly. Isn’t that, after all, a primary purpose of altars?  

At this altar, our house of God, touching divinity stands constant, the ultimate goal for everything we do. We want divine approval, divine power and a divine conclusion, however, we also want to ease the pain and hasten the solution on Earth, in the physical reality we live, in the ever-chaotic 3D.

When we say “Art is more than divine” we mean it’s also functional and useful in everyday life – not just when we want to feel holy.  We speak of our healing practice as an art, but we are talking about any kind of art, for holy purposes or not: painted, written, constructed, pasted, sung, pantomimed, performed. If it comes to you, attracts you, feels good, go with it. Find a way, time and supply, and go for it.

Making art has benefits:

  • Decreasing stress levels and depression
  • Increasing self-esteem and spiritual awareness
  • Finding inspiration and “answers”
  • It’s satisfying

Keep in mind, it doesn’t matter who you are, what you look like or what you do for a living, you have art inside, divine and functional. We urge you, develop a taste for the divine.


What’s It Take to Make Art? Or

What Special Feeling?    

It takes a decision acted upon, nothing more.

But wait! What about the talent, teachers and tools? Critics and arts afficionados? Don’t they have something to say about what “art” actually is, what it takes to make?

Well yes, they matter to some extent of course, but for me and you, the only thing that matters is the decision that we act upon.

Inspiration matters, too, no doubt, but inspiration comes by acting upon the decision. Something must have already inspired you this far already; now you act, or you don’t.

What humans call art is a special category that cuts across all human experience; one might say it’s a consensus that art is, or certainly can be, divine. Touching the divine while living out our destiny doesn’t sound too bad. Things go better with a little divinity mixed in.  

Maybe you already know that special feeling that comes while you’re producing, creating, thinking, ideating over an art project. If we can go to that good feeling place over and over, good things happen around us, in our routine days and in our routine life. I don’t know about you, but it seems worth the effort, be they failed or successful.

Art has a place in every major religion, it has a place in the street graffiti, and it even has a place with plumbers and mechanics, crafts-people and beggars. It is one of the highest compliments humans give other humans, “That’s a work of art!”
