Perspective is EVERYTHING…
You know in life is not all about what happens but how you see it how you respond to it what is your perspective about it. First of all what is perspective when you say that you have different perspectives what does that really mean?
Your perspective or your view is made up of what is going internally in your mind and your system in your thoughts it is a reflection of your beliefs. Therefore causing you to see the same situation is maybe someone else does but you would see it differently because of what you you are showing up to be.
As you can see it in this above illustration there are two completely contrast and absolutely the opposite stories going on, And if you were only to come from the perspective of the left side you would have a story of doom gloom and depression, Or on the contrary the right side has more of the opportunistic ideas of the artistic lifestyle.
But when you’re able to put the two sides together and gain the perspective from the front front of you and you able to see both sides to you get the complete story.
If you ask me personally art is life what what would life be if there is not the colors if there are other contours the comfort that you get from the admiration and appreciation of great beauty in a fine piece of some sensory stimulating art that exudes brilliance and manifests excellence.
The element of society that is fueled by the great portraits, pottery, music, paintings, sculptures, and other forms of creative and innovative ideas being transposed into tangible works, is a thriving economy that plays a vital part of our well being, emotional connectedness, and spiritual vitality as humans as we are given opportunities to tap into part our soul that can expand into more expansive states of appreciation and passion.
And you can take that to the bank.
But unfortunately, many who choose this path, can’t take anything to the bank, if they even have one.. trust me I’ve been there.
It’s like a garage with a low ceiling that you keep hitting and the overhead door keeps getting stuck..
And it doesn’t help that we live in a culture that subscribes to the restrictive ways of thinking where it is more acceptable to conform to the norms and stifle the fire of those who dare to defy the rules already on file, because they have a growing roar inside their belly and they can’t rest until they’re able to let the world hear it.
They refuse to deny their right to fully express the gifts and talents inside that they have given their lives to find and cultivate..
But then they also found the piece that they’ve been previously missing which is the part that fits their life into a bigger picture, a bigger story that is unfolding for the advancement and onward march of their brothers and sisters of humanity.
And this is my perspective..
What is different between the artists eating good and thriving fully in the upper percentages of society, and the artists who can ride above an established calling in the field of public performances and subway busking?
It’s how they see themselves, it’s the perspective of their own identities and abilities, it’s the vision and belief of how high they can go and how far they can reach, it’s their faith in the source of the force that holds them in support while they hold down the fort and play the ball while it’s in their court, pregnant with a promise that they refuse to abort because time is precious and life is short.
Haha… I started this post with an intention to talk about perspectives, but I ended up sharing one. Maybe you felt a tug inside your heart as you maybe resonated with something that spilled from the cup of my life. It’s all how you look at it. That’s why I say, the cup half full which is normally associated with optimists, and cup half gone usually referring to pessimists, I chose to have the perspective that neither one is mine, my cup is overflowing, which reflects being blessed and rejects the notion of claiming anything less.
