The creative force behind form

Reposting this article as I find it worthwhile reading:

“It is amazing to receive constant evidence for what I have “suspected”
for a long time :

If you want to create something of real value, – a piece of art, a project, a collaboration or whatever, –  first you have to start envisioning the energy from which that particular thing evolves.

In other words, you “build up” the vision before creating the actual thing.

“Vision”, it is not a mere word. It is a force, a vivid reality, a felt energy seen at first with the eyes of the soul, becoming manifest when its inner body is shining through in clear shape within you.

It is this very force which is behind the greatest works of art, behind all real endeavours and successful achievements.

To illustrate my point, if an orchestra or interpret tries to play – let´s say Beethoven – without “understanding” this underlying ineffable reality behind the score, the outcome will be a total failure, as it usually is. That is why, classical music like most of our human endeavours, have become devoid of meaning, due to this blatant absence of this magic flow.

I repeat, Meaning is the subtle presence of this timeless, secret energy.

Somehow, aware or not, the founders of known brands, have known and worked with this magic creative force which makes the brand worthwhile.

When people buy a Louis Vuitton bag, or a Rolls Royce, it is not the bag or car they are paying dearly for, but the energy deriving from it. This is certainty, not speculation.

This energy is “heard” and attract other people, when you come in touch with it.
This is the key to whatever successful action.

This is in fact, the very Thing every human being consciously or unconsciously is striving for.”

Thinking spawns Absence of Emotion

People are so occupied with their thinking, so absorbed in their inner labyrinth, so THEY SEE NOTHING AROUND THEM.
If the answer to their wishes would lie in front of their nose, be it the solution to their problems, or the lover they so hardly look for, or I don´t know what, they would see nothing.

EVEN IF GOD HIMSELF WOULD SIT NEXT TO THEM, THEY COULDN´T CARE LESS…

It is unbelievable to see how HUMANS HAVE BECOME THE SLAVES OF THEIR OWN THINKING, taking their drama for the only one and ultimate reality, becoming so closed and impenetrable, that nothing can reach them anymore.

How on earth has man become so self-absorbed, so dead and insensitive? So incredibly absent…?

Could it be that THINKING is the curse and main disease of “modern” times ?

If you go out wherever, you have the feeling the world has become depopulated. Absence and absence wherever you turn…Nobody is there cause everybody is immersed in thinking, in planning God knows what….

Life is no longer real life, but a question of thinking, and postponing.

There are plenty of activities around, noises, million ”things to do”, places to see, and yet, again – you have the distinct feeling that NOTHING REALLY HAPPENS.

Today´s society is a sum of boring, empty, spiritually anemic, utterly dead individuals interested in gadgets, expensive clothes and costly but superfluous items.

More often than not, the typical individual today is more a sum of  well-rehearsed attitudes, than a genuine entity.

This is the REAL CRISIS they all talk about today. The crisis is WE, the non entities we have become.

THE CRISIS IS OUR THINKING, OUR EMOTIONAL BANKRUPTCY, it is the absence of life within us.

Only a lived life creates value. Value means LIVING. But we have become great liars because we don´t live, we are great specialists in faking. Our lives are therefore hollow, as there is no value in lie and falsehood.

We are afraid of Life, as we take Absence for Life.

Why are many so stupid, corrupt and incompetent? Because they have no clue anymore as to what Presence and Living is about.

Only the vivid person taking responsibility for feeling and living, is real, intelligent, graceful and naturally wise.

Life sustains everything… – meaning that being alive is finding new solutions.

But WHERE THERE IS NO LIFE, THERE IS NO SUSTAINABILITY WHATSOEVER. Neither economically, politically, artistically or in whatever aspect of our human endeavour.

Life is Emotion, and the absence of emotion means misfortune.
