Crafting your unique art

Crafting your best

I feel that in order to craft the best ideas, the best characters, the best plot in a story, you have to be emotionally in touch with yourself. That you must accept yourself, your past burdens, your flaws, your pains.

After all, whatever you create, in any artistic form, must be born from you. And also must deliver the strength of your emotions, without, of course, overwhelming the ones who will appreciate your art form.

Artistic freedom

It is very personal, I know, because the way we create is based on the personality and the experiences we have; and, obviously, each one of us is different, which makes art forms potentially excellent. So, as an author, I find that pouring my personality and experience in what I write gives me artistic freedom.

And, I’d humbly suggest, that in life, or in anything else that requires the subtlety of your art, you find also your artistic freedom. That you liberate yourself from the constraints of following others, or the ways they do things, or encasing your mind to think like them.

The very few…

Acquiring freedom

The feeling of true love and happiness equals freedom. Freedom to think for yourself without influences or bias. Freedom to be yourself without being ashamed or self-conscious in front of others. Freedom to do whatever is healthy and moral without following what others say and do.

Freedom to walk your own path without feeling lonely or odd because you do not choose to walk in the path of others. These are just a few examples of what freedom truly is. Most people in the world do not have it, because true freedom requires courage and a strong personality. Only a very selected few among us actually have freedom.

Losing freedom

These are some examples of why groups, always without your awareness and inducing the illusion of ‘group identity’ in you, rob you of intelligence and moral values:

1- You must assimilate the group’s beliefs and moral values to belong to it, even if you tell yourself that you don’t have to. The programming happens subconsciously.

2- You must be “A Team Player”, which means accepting and following the ventures and commands the group has for you, even if it lacks rationality and intelligence, even if it’s biased and divisive with others outside the group.

3- As you belong to the group, your mind starts shifting from your individual identity to a ‘group identity’. And soon you start creating the way you are, your goals, your values, your way of thinking and feeling, and the truth based on the group.

4- Your attachment to the group’s mentality creates the illusion that you are whole only with the group. In this illusion, you become attached, fascinated, addicted to what the group offers you. Soon, your subconscious creates the program where you believe you are nothing without the group.

Just like in war…

Deceptions of war

Below is a photo of World War 1, of an observation post disguised as a tree. It tells you that in war, deception is the main tool used. Wars are about power, control, about competing to win at any costs.

Most times, all this starts as seeking freedom and justice (in the deluded mind of government officials); but as the war starts people loses all meaning of freedom and justice (love), and they only see winning and showing superiority over others instead.

Also in relationships

It’s kind of interesting to think that when a person lacks character in a relationship, he begins also to use deception, cheating, lies, gaslighting, all forms of dishonesty like in a war.

The mind of the person gets so narcissistic that he starts playing the games of competing and controlling. Because the person lost all meaning of love by now. The loss of love makes us irrational, violent, bullies, inhuman, just like war. Something to think about.

Freeing yourself

Shielding yourself from the outside

No woman, as no man, should let society dictate what her strengths are, what her beauty is, what her place in the world is. The everyday pressures to think, feel, behave a certain way. The influences from social media, from celebrities, from friends, from family.

All this is causing major disruption in our thinking process. Much anxiety is being allowed in our minds by all this garbage. There must be a 100% focus on your inner world, taking care of your mental health and blocking or ignoring whatever is not uplifting and conducive to your well-being.

An inner revolution

After all, life is about discovering yourself; but for this, you must focus entirely on the way you think and feel without any bias or influence from anything or anyone out there. If there is no self-discovery, a person is like a machine. A machine follows set programming.

A machine follows and copies what others have programmed into it. But a machine can never be truly unique. And life, love, happiness, as a better human being, requires us to be unique and to study ourselves in depth in order to grow. Ponder this and start an inner revolution.

Time to choose

You can’t worship 2 masters

I’ve learned that life has its ups and downs. Sometimes it goes well, but some other times not so. Still, I’ve learned that all it takes is to focus on yourself, because if you focus on you then you can choose to be happy no matter what the situation is.

And being happy truly is a choice. Of course, if your life is not going well at the moment you might disagree. But ask yourself what mindset you choose to have: A positive mindset, or a negative mindset?? You have to choose. You can’t worship 2 masters. So, which one do you choose??

Analyze your situation

And what if you don’t choose..?? What if you’re like me when I was younger?? What if you allow yourself to be pushed and bullied by your worries, the economy, the frustration, bad relationships, etc?? Well, if you do, then perhaps without knowing you already chose a negative mindset in your current life.

I’m not who to judge. I’m just sharing my thoughts. God knows I still have a lot of insecurities and fears to fix myself, and that I struggle with every single day. But here’s this message in hopes that you can analyze your own mental situations, and so take responsibility for your choice–either a positive mindset or a negative one.

Something special…

Something personal (very special)

Intelligence is something personal, something you develop, and it has little to do with any education. Education is learning the already established knowledge in society and in your family’s traditions and beliefs. Intelligence comes with personal observation.

Intelligence goes far beyond knowledge. Intelligence requires sensitivity, the capacity to project yourself into the experience of somebody else (great empathy), which, obviously, is something knowledge does not give you.

The many in society (not special)

Knowledge helps you thrive in society, because the systems in it are based on knowledge, on how to do this and that to climb to the top levels (it offers the achievement of pleasures). The systems in society are rigid, so it is just about following and copying, going to school and allowing influences out there to guide you through the systems.

Nothing special about knowledge. But intelligence is calmly, personally observing, instead of just reacting and answering through the knowledge and beliefs you have acquired. It is why most people lack intelligence. And it is why intelligence belongs only to the few and not to the many.

A great mind.

Go beyond what you think

I have found that is extremely important to verify the content of our minds. Don’t just remain attached to your opinion, to your belief, to your tradition, to what others have said; but go beyond that and seek to open your mind to new perspectives through new information. This rigid attachment happens mostly to religious people and to people following politics.

I know from experience because I used to be religious. The scriptures, what people close to me said, what was preached in the Bible and in Church. All of it had stolen my ability to seek different perspectives and expand my mind. But I discovered that nothing is more important than to learn to think for yourself, without bias, without anything occupying room in your mind and misleading you.

Mental freedom

The mind is limited by its content. And that is why we must always be learning new things, new information, new science, new philosophies, new life views. Expand your mind’s content to bring freedom to your mind, such is freedom to think for yourself without being attached to anything.

Because what brings stubbornness, anxiety, pride, intolerance of others, is attachment to specific beliefs and viewpoints. Your mind must be free of this in order to understand yourself, others, and life itself. Freedom exists only when the mind is liberated from any attachment, and this liberation then gives you the capacity to open your mind and heart to all.
