Nothing in the Universe ever stays in the same. Nothing ever rests or remains as it is. We are energetic beings in a constant state of vibration. This is a natural, simple law of the Universe that artists often overlook. This isn’t some woo-woo New Age stuff, this is science.
If we are not creating with our talents and gifts, we are disintegrating!
What is the definition of disintegrate? From my research, it means:
weaken or break apart
break up into small parts, typically as the result of impact or decay
To create is the opposite of disintegrate. According to the Law of Polarity, there are two polar opposites of everything in the Universe. Everything is dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites. This isn’t magic, this is science.
Nature is always expanding and expressing itself… that’s what we should be doing, as artists! It’s our natural calling, it’s why we are here.
When we stop expanding and expressing ourselves, we begin to disintegrate. This can manifest in a physical ailment, like I experienced when I ceased my art and creativity altogether.
Around four months ago, my joints began to stiffness and I began to experience arthritic symptoms in my fingers, feet, knees, and shoulders. This happened literally out of nowhere. While I can’t 100% attest this is due to my lack of creating, it certainly in a possibility because it occurred right after I quit painting.
I could feel my body weaken, it was breaking down. I felt hopeless, My life felt meaningless and I couldn’t find my purpose. I wished my misery would end. I had put my art on the back shelf (again) to pursue other stupid endeavors that just lead me back to the realization that they were NOT what I supposed to be doing with my life.
If we are not creating, we are disintegrating. Not necessarily in always physical sense, but mentally, spiritually, emotionally, and other energetic forms of weakness or infirmity.
It’s almost like we are in violation of the Universe if we supress or deny our artistic talents… and then we suffer for it. We disintegrate. Not as a punishment in a theological sense, but just by a law of nature. If we don’t use our gifts, we lose them.
