Life Is an Art

There is a science to life and what our reality is. As a fan of quantum mechanics, I can really say there are massive mathematical equations that actually help to map and explain the forces that make our universe what it is.

But like most things with great depth, life is a paradox. Not only is it a science, but it is an art. Perhaps this is the reason why science may never fully explain everything. The more answers we find, the more questions will be revealed. Thus the intuitive and artistic perspective of life holds just as much value; if not more.

In quantum mechanics, a quantum observer is recognized to collapse a wave function of possibilities into a specific reality. When the ancient sages of Hinduism, Buddhism, Gnostic Christianity, Jewish Kabbalahists, Muslim Ismalis, and other less spoken of spiritual teachings spoke of a true Self or objective Observer they spoke of the same occurrence; only with out the benefit of experiments to back up their wealth of knowledge. They had the art of knowing as opposed to the science of it. Both ways of looking at life yield the same results. The following are a few artistic illustrations of the point of being the observer.
  • You are the author of your own story.
  • You are the sculptor of your own image.
  • You are the illustrator of your own big picture.
  • You are the writer, director, and star of your own movie.
  • You are the singer of your own song.
  • You are the star dancer in this "life is a stage" performance.
These all help point to the fact that it is your perspective, and yours alone, that determines your life's experience. No matter what happens, it is the context of how you percieve it, that detemines how you feel about it. Life is an art. Be a great artist.

"Life is an Art" definitely rings with Truth. We really have to learn to have "fun" and let the Creative force work through us (the brush) as the cavas of life is painted.

I think this piece addresses this most interesting idea of yours.

Indeed bometernally. Thank you for the insight.

We are simultaneously the creative force, the brush and the canvas of life. :-)

Hi Kaz,

Thank you for stopping by. I am intrigued with your mathematical poetry and art. It is amazing (but not surprising) when we can see life from a similar perspective.

Thank you!

The bottom line thing is inspiration. Math, science, music, and visual art all require inspiration. We spend much time on "what we do". The true substance to chase is inspiration. It never runs out but it can be completely overlooked, which makes it about as useful.

Hmmm. I feel like inspiration chases me ... sometimes I wish it would give me a rest.
