I am an artist and I create every day. What would you like to discuss?

Here is an example of a poem I just wrote.

Quote:
Someone asks _ Why is life structured in a way to make it seem that material things are all that matters?

My response is _


The people must be convinced to buy what they don't need,
In order to satisfy corporate greed.
If they knew that true value came from deep within,
The suits might never make a profit again.

Then the world would end and the economy would cease,
But all human beings would awake from their sleep.
Then we'd start from scratch with a brand new day,
To make good on the things that Christ used to say.

We don't need to wait for a sign in the sky,
Just make sure you succeed when you decide to try.
Any wise man would agree with me,
That the kingdom is here but the people don't see.

I have the authority, I wrote this myself,
These words never spoken by anyone else.
There is a secret the church is afraid to let through,
That the Kingdom of God is already in you.

Why can't we see it? Why must we all wait?
Because what's good for man is not good for the state.
They cannot tax, if we do not shop,
It isn't in their best interest to get us to stop.

The government is for the people, aren't we all their equal,
Don't they represent us, and do things just as we'd do?
That is the premise upon which we believe,
But since we are so divided, they do as they please.

The only way to improve the conditions we are in,
Is to recognize a stranger as a potential friend.
Not as a competitor or an enemy to destroy
But another child of God whose time you'll enjoy.

I am not a flower child in a cloud of false belief,
But I know to accomplish anything we must first establish peace.
A fantasy is an illusion and does not require proof,
But to save mankind we must all seek the truth.

I normally am pretty quick to analyze a subject and give a good philosophical view on it, but creativity is a very hard thing to explain. My assumption is we were instilled with this phenomenon of creativity in order to constantly expand our minds and find solutions to given problems. Creativity most likely invented the wheel and light bulb. We wouldn't be a very advanced society without creativity. Where would all of the sports, movies, theatre, books, and stories be? Much of that would not exist without creativity. I'm a very creative person, I feel. Someone can say one sentence to me (such as "He knew there was only one thing left to do. It was time to end this here and now...") and I can create a short story revolving around it. Our brains are so advanced and complicated it's hard to find out where all of this comes from. Nobody can say for sure, so all we can do is just enjoy creativity as it is.

I can say for sure. Creativity is the result of inspiration. Inspiration is a vision of a design. the artist interprets the design through focus and concentration to shape given materials into a new invention.

We have creativity to help us come to know God. If your answer to a question adds more mystery then you didn't really answer the question.

Yet, Phix, at the same time creativity strays people away from God. How do you think evolutionism came into play? Darwin obviously had some sort of creative urge to make up all of that he spoke of. But if it's creativity that allows us to apply that which God teaches into our lives, I see what you mean.

Of course God had a plan for creativity when He created us. God Himself is an artist... just look how beautiful everything is; flowers, trees, the orange and purple sky when the sun is setting. It's all beauty. I just wish the human race wasn't so quick to disrupt it...

You know, creativity may cause people to stray from the church's concept of God but, creativity is all about problem solving and prob solving is all about truth. Institutionalized religion needs to be removed from the picture completely because they have a separate agenda. Both church and state want to replace God and control the people. If mankind truly knew God both chrch and state would become obsolete, or at least the way we know them today.

Those who are not creative will strive to be so, and those who stumble and fall will grab a hand hold to another's creativity. Creativity strays people from God, but for all we know, it created God. Creativity is the basis of ALL creation. It may some day, be the structure of our destruction, as it was the cause of our creation. It is, beyond a shadow os a doubt, the most perplexing subject I have encountered.

How do you see that creativity causes people to stray from God? Creativity is the opposite of destruction. What is so perplexing about it? Explain.

One must destroy, in order to create.

How about I destroy you to create some peace around here?
No, I'm just kidding!
I do wish you could atleast explain your quote so we can understand why this is true. It's like saying "One must die in order to live", "One must speak in order to listen." Stuff that has opposites. It sounds profound, but unless you look really hard you can't find any real insight.
