Why We Need To Encourage Individual Expression
Creativity is an essential hippy thing because is so integral to emotional and spiritual fulfillment. Too much emphasis on the logical and ‘technical’ causes stress. Emotions are our life force and spiritual channel. Left brainism has permeated our collective psychology so that it’s all about the hustle and bustle, and creative, expressive people are undervalued. Some artists and creatives will make it big, only with support and it’s often at the expense of their true expression.
A Healthier Economy
The economy needs more healthy small businesses. There’s a common argument for supporting the big business ‘throw away’ industry involving workers from poor countries, that is, that it gives poor people jobs, like it’s a practical answer to the idea, or the ‘fact’ that we all need to scrabble and fight to survive and that’s just the way it is, but it’s not like that for everyone. I would say that is an excuse and a patch up job that just gives room for more and more negativity. Real art and craftsmanship is done away with in favor of money, and it doesn’t address the causes, the problem of poverty or the environmental problems this kind of industry creates, in any way.
Politically, and socially, this kind of cold, logical ‘machine’ philosophy has also given further rise to an ostensibly apathetic, but actually, sick excuse and license, to further undermine and exploit anyone poor, or anyone we can, anywhere, and the animals, and the planet, and say it’s not our fault.
Some things are not logical. And it’s possible to be shining your logic on the wrong things. Not everybody is the same, or has the same talents. But we’re the same at heart. And often the more logical you get, the more ridiculous and further away from the truth you get.
It’s not a competition. We know we can do better. It’s no good to be constrained by criticism or lack of money. Loving support and appreciation of each other as human beings, with different needs and talents, and paying people respectful wages for what they do, is the way to get things back into a more human and sensible balance.
We need Art and creativity, it’s our natural, collective soul. Art is like a dream, waking us up to a deeper reality. There has definitely been a shift in collective consciousness, which has sparked, in so many ways, a shift in collective creativity. There’s a lot more entrepreneurs. Many more people are making and selling handmade goods and turning to DIY, bringing back homemade and natural, growing their own food and creating their own digital products to earn money by passing on their skills and knowledge.
I’ve got some amazing art and crafts to show you on this website. Take a look at the related content. And I hope that because I’m inspired to have my own business and believe in small businesses, it could inspire some other people to start one of their own.
