“…simply make things better for someone else, as if I were to be born again, and that someone else, and it doesn't have to be me, but it could be someone like me, that they would have a better life than I had, that everyone was better. There is something seriously wrong with everyone, and that is something I observed when I was very young. We are the problem, and we need to become better, because we are fucking everything up.”
“So this is who I am. There is something seriously wrong with everyone and we need to fix it, if not for us, then for the future generations."
"Everything I have done in this life, and everything I will do, is for this purpose.”

Art as what is best for all 202

I went to Art Basel today in Miami, Florida. I was asked what interested me, or what art drew my attention. I didn't really have an answer to that question at first. But later after I saw a picture that had a message of equality, I had an answer. Art that interest me is the content of the art, the message, the why. Because art otherwise, without that content, core and message, is meaningless. Its just entertaining, emotional, or, frankly, superficial. Art to have meaning requires depth, and to have that depth requires a message or principle, essentially the depth of your real being, which is your oneness and equality point, your connection to Life itself, to everyone. If you lack that point, what you do will be empty and superficial, not just art, but everything.

So its important to see that yes, art CAN have that depth, through standing for a principle, the integrity of you, standing with and as everyone. Because what is art, but just a medium of communication. Writing is also considered an art. Music is an art. These are all just ways to communicate or express yourself. And one has to develop a skill of becoming an effective communicator of yourself. Art (heart) is a movement of yourself, and who you are determines, what you will do and how you will do it. So the outcome of a process can be known by the start of the process.

Art, like music and writing, are just acts of creation. Taking the physical tools and substances that are here, placing them together to create a specific outcome. Each time you speak, or move its the same process. You create words and speech. So its important to make every act of creation, every movement, to represent and embody the best, that being what is best for all. IS there anything better than that? If so, then do that.
