Why art is important?
When circumstances are painful, the more you think about them the deeper you fall into the grip of suffering.
Where do you focus your attention in that case?
Art when created genuinely and sincerely is an expression of care.
Art is not just utility. A great song, a great poem, a great piece of writing, a great movie are not just functional, they are something more.
Great art can move you. It can soften your heart towards love. A great creator can talk to you like an affectionate friend and someone who cares about you.
It can help you navigate your situation and move towards acceptance.
It can get you in touch with your spirit, your soul and be a bigger person.
Great art gives you perspective.
Great art reminds you that the highest form of humanity is acceptance, love, endurance and kindness.
