Why is Art Important?

I have been reflecting over my break on the importance of art/creativity. And relatedly why RB is important. At same time been doing some spiritual reading (Echart Tolle, Deepak Chopra and some New Testament!).

It occurs to me that through our creativity we give external expression to our deepest thoughts. We make them concrete. In our meditation we try to do the same thing. And in both actions we realize that we are not our thoughts. This helps us to go beyond them to the deeper reality.

As we go beyond, we grow still in time and in place. When I am creating and when I am experiencing another’s creation I perceive the object so deeply that I begin to move through it. I am completely alive in that moment – absolutely aware but not caught by my ego-self and free in the now.

Our creativity in a strange way frees us from ourselves.
