Do you agree or disagree with Mike Robin who states that art can help you find what you are looking for?
Absolutely! Making art helped me find peace and balance when I needed most. When I watched this video, I couldn’t help but think of Picasso’s quote: “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.” I think Mike’s words provide an answer to the question of how to find one’s inner lost artist.
Dear Fariz, thank you. Would you agree that art, or better say, creativity is a form of meditation? And that may be the way to freedom, to liberation. Here is a short excerpt from the transcription of one of J. Krishnamurti’s conversations, ‘…meditation is the understanding of life, which is to bring about order. Order is virtue, which is light, which is not to be lit by another, however experienced, however clever, however erudite, however spiritual. Nobody on earth or in heaven can light that, except yourself, in your own understanding and meditation. And to die to every thing within oneself, for love is innocent and fresh, young and clear.’
The way this short film is done is mesmerizing. I love the sencerity of Michael, his attitude and passion. But video fragments of different forms of art that accompany the Michael’s story is beautiful and inspiring. Art is a happy part of our life and this is the reason that it occupies all our emotions and let us be ourselves.
