i love what is happening to your vision lately g-tron…there is a growing detachment, a kind of mystical sadness, but combined with an inspiring resignation to never give up, never stop punchin….
i don’t think i’m describing it adequately, but that is only because i don’t think it is possible to do so, rather i am attempting to touch the unknown force field that is surrounding your posts lately…
keep surrendering, keep up your openness..love it..
I take what the good lord gives me and try to make the best out of it. That’s all Akbar. I will fight till the end while trying to produce as many creative projects (hopefully beneficial to my family and friends) to document my thirst for knowledge and life before my cards are called in. There is not a minute to waste.
Your attempt to describe the mystic air that is breezing through the binary is quite flattering. thank you my dear friend.
One thing I will say to you Globa, I envy your creative gifts. I have struggled with my spirituality most of my life and found some sense of ……openess to possibilities with my sharing with you here. I know we come from very very different mindsets but I do appreciate what you are trying to do. It is inspiring to me. My creative outlets have ususally been limited to two things. Cooking and role playing, I have to tell you I am the poster child for “white and nerdy” sometimes.
I think I have struggled with this because I have an expectation to fit in and to be blunt, yours and Akbar particular perceptions/views do not usually fit in to mainstream America. I know that sounds bad but it is true that typical corporate/mainstream America does not talk about or even discuss things like the topics on here. I already had issues “fitting in” with the world and had to adapt to be acceptible. I don’t know what I am going on about. The point is I appreciate your bravery and willingness to put yourself out there regardless of the cost. Keep being creative Globa, it does make a difference. Who knows maybe I will try writing again.
Thanks Greg. That really means a lot to me. I really appreciate it.
I believe artists usually don’t worry too much about “fitting in”. At least the ones I have surrounded myself with. We are usually on the fringe of society so it’s easier for us to speak our minds. We are like a pressure valve for culture. We let out the steam. Hot air or not. There will always be artists to help regulate the flow of ideas inside a culture.
They might be burned at the stake one year and worshiped the next but they will always be. Some might say we are a flaw in the program. Others might say we are the programmers and without us culture does not exist.
There is a certain sense of awareness that is developed through the creative process that I believe through continual practice is evolutionary to ones mind and spirit. And with that said I would argue artists are indeed an evolution of mankind. All have this potential. It is not ordained. It is a human right to create and to practice being in the moment.
I would enjoy reading some of your work and I definitely encourage you to worry less about “fitting in” and more about letting the spirit move you.
Thx again Greg. You are too kind.
