So here we are new year well few months after the new year since my last journal entry. I have learnt so much more not just from art but about myself.The happy times,the sad times , that painful time , the doubts and negativity. We as artist, doesn't matter the medium the style. We are all going for the same fruits on the this tree just different branches which I call the creative tree. Artist , Musicians , Film Makers , Creative Writers we all have our parts to play and exalt this creative energy into the world. The world looks upon us as just in some places as lazy, wasting our times not producing anything worthwhile to society .Do not get angry and hate them for this is because they just don't see it from our perspective as how we see things in many perspectives in how we create our pieces.
I was watching the other day some motivational videos and came across and an old movie which I watched many years ago " Coach Carter" I didn't look it at then as how I look at it now where I truly understand what he was trying to say. What is our deepest fear's as creative people or let's broaden the range humanity.People who have something to give will understand this but they are scared to do so. I know this course there were many times I wondered if how will people take it , how will I be looked upon, Can I do this ? I questioned myself and fell down a couple of times. I now know what am I and what I feel my place is.
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. You playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others".
We have to keep pushing , not for ourselves only but also to uplift the people around us unconsciously so that we may band together to do our part in the world. This is not to say ' thats right we are important in arrogance , but more so to give people that perspective hey we're here we put colours into the black and grey's of the world. We pull emotions and make you realize what we are as humans to see , feel , touch on the deeper side of our daily life's. I am an "ARTIST" and this is my role I play in the world inspiring others through ways I cannot imagine and that is what art is and that is what art does.
Finally a quote from someone
To send light into the darkness of men's hearts - such is the duty of the artist.
