Some popular quotes on art:

  • “Art is made by the alone for the alone.” – (Luis Barragan)
  • “We have art so that we may not perish by the truth.” – (Friedrich Nietzsche)

 

What is the role of the artist in society?  Is it the obligation of the artist to convey what others cannot see, the underpinnings of this reality that are not readily apparent; the things you feel and experience that you cannot put into words; the direct confrontation with the unknown and the mystery?  The artist is on a path much alike to the spiritual path, and their art may even be their burden.  The nature of producing great art often involves a great inner struggle, creation and destruction of all things in their head,

 

 

dancing star

are we all mad

chaos and illusion

nine-to-five

breaking our necks

to build that pyramid

a great project

for God knows what

God knows why

fed mere scraps

slaves get nothing

the all seeing eye

at the apex

the controllers

the reptilians

the government

the aliens

Area 51

Illuminati

hidden in plain sight

behold, a pale horse

Big Brother

watching us always

our every move

what we do

even in secret

privacy

it has lost meaning

none to be found

this world

has lost meaning

no longer values

exposed

deep secrets

in front of the world

cover up

on display

a web containing

guilty by association

the FBI

the CIA

the narrative

the media

pretty faces

one can laugh

making you believe

lying to your face

advertisements

agendas

dictating always

feeding you

always wanting more

never satisfied

consumers

food for sheep

food for thought

just enough

to keep coming back

the individual

discounted

disenfranchised

one only cares

for profit

corporations

controlling

for-profit

prisons

locking up its citizens

billionares

pushing the agenda

New World Order

poisoning our water

turning frogs gay

that much is true

the machine

the system

the man

the controllers

left and right

liar or outright liar

the puppets

playing their game

the puppet masters

behind the scenes

behind the curtains

that veil of illusion

controlling our thoughts

so that what we think

isn’t even ours

no ownership

no accountability

authority

demanding respect

demanding obedience

giving nothing in return

obey or die

disobey and be free

but you must run always

out of reach

out of touch

you are called crazy

for believing

the unbelievable truth

that we are led

like lambs to slaughter

 

 

Silence

The way of not speaking

it stands before you plainly

it is begging for your attention

silently of course

It came before, and so must you return

silence in its exacting fullness

all the many mute tongues

of the sages

all who surely know

so wise yet not saying, anything

nothing at all

speaking is one step away, after another

after another

stop right now

and retrace your steps

to find that source

that sacred place

before lips move

where non-utterance is saying

all that needs to be said

come from that place

where all words have their origin

where words will align

with that great wisdom

you will then speak

from the heart and with the soul

Everything is in flux; everything is constantly changing.  The ebb and flow of the universe.  Alchemy.  Disintegration, transmutation, amalgamation. Death, suffering, thriving.  Nothing lasts.  Accept this fact.  You must be okay with change in order to get through life.  Impermanence is the nature of the universe.  We are not the same person we were yesterday; biologically, mentally, and spiritually.  To grow and change; it is why we are here.  Good times are ahead of you; hard times are ahead of you; you must be ready for whatever comes your way.  Keep a stable and steady disposition in order to get through both.  Welcome change with open arms; go with the flow.  Each day we grow just a bit wiser; just a bit stronger as well.  The only thing that doesn’t change is your core; the observer;
