Det kreative sinn - Kunst er det, man ikke kan. Hvis man kunne, var det jo ingen kunst


En nydelig farge på en rose. Inspirasjonen blomstrer. 

Purple or lavender roses mean wonder, awe, and change for the better.

Roses and Miracles

Roses appear in accounts from all of the world's major religions as a symbol of miraculous love at work in the world. In ancient mythology, roses symbolized eternal love in stories of how gods interacted with each other and human beings. Pagans use roses as decorations to represent their hearts.  Muslims view roses as symbols of the human soul, so smelling the scent of roses reminds them of their spirituality.   Hindus and  Buddhists see roses and other flowers as expressions of spiritual joy. Christians view roses as reminders of the Garden of Eden, a paradise in a world that reflected God's design before sin corrupted it.



Kunst er det, man ikke kan.

Hvis man kunne, var det jo ingen kunst


 If you want to learn a thing or two about color, why not look to the true masters whose artistic work has stood the test of time? Great painters almost always possess a keen understanding of color that is truly impressive when you stop to appreciate it.


The Color Purple
and
The Color Violet

The color purple is the color of
the imagination and spirituality

This color relates to the imagination and spirituality. It stimulates the imagination and inspires high ideals. It is an introspective color, allowing us to get in touch with our deeper thoughts.
The difference between violet and purple is that violet appears in the visible light spectrum, or rainbow, whereas purple is simply a mix of red and blue. Violet has the highest vibration in the visible spectrum.
While the violet is not quite as intense as purple, its essence is similar. Generally the names are interchangeable and the meaning of the colors is similar. Both contain the energy and strength of red with the spirituality and integrity of blue. This is the union of body and soul creating a balance between our physical and our spiritual energies.



 Purple or violet assists those who seek the meaning of life and spiritual fulfillment - it expands our awareness, connecting us to a higher consciousness. For this reason it is associated with transformation of the soul and the philosophers of the world are often attracted to it.
In the meaning of colors, purple and violet represent the future, the imagination and dreams, while spiritually calming the emotions. They inspire and enhance psychic ability and spiritual enlightenment, while, at the same time, keeping us grounded.

The color violet relates to the fantasy world, and a need to escape from the practicalities of life. It is the daydreamer escaping from reality.
From a color psychology perspective, purple and violet promote harmony of the mind and the emotions, contributing to mental balance and stability, peace of mind, a link between the spiritual and the physical worlds, between thought and activity. Violet and purple support the practice of meditation.

All roses symbolize God's love at work in the world, but different colors of roses also symbolize different spiritual concepts.  White roses mean purity and holiness. Red roses mean passion and sacrifice. Pink roses mean gratitude and peace
The color violet inspires unconditional and selfless love, devoid of ego, encouraging sensitivity and compassion. Violet can be sensitive to all the different forms of pollution in the world today, whether it be air pollution, noise pollution, visual pollution or the pollution in our food chain. This sensitivity makes violet susceptible to illness and allergies, vulnerable to its everyday surroundings.

Violet encourages creative pursuits and seeks inspiration and originality through its creative endeavors. It likes to be unique, individual and independent, not one of the crowd. Artists, musicians, writers, poets and psychics are all inspired by violet and its magic and mystery.
Violet is the color of the humanitarian, using its better judgment to do good for others. Combining wisdom and power with sensitivity and humility, violet can achieve a lot for those less fortunate.

The color purple is specifically associated with royalty and the nobility, creating an impression of luxury, wealth and extravagance.
Purple has power. It has a richness and quality to it that demands respect. Purple is ambitious and self-assured, the leader.

Too much of the color purple can promote or aggravate depression in some. It is one color that should be used extremely carefully and in small amounts by those who are vulnerable to these depressed states.


Når du ønsker at andre skal ha det godt- så ønsker du det samme for deg selv. Når du ønsker at andre skal ha suksess - så ønsker du det samme for deg selv. Når du ønsker at andre skal ha lykke, glede og kjærlighet i sitt liv- så ønsker du det samme for deg selv. Men la ønsket komme fra hjerte..det er først da det blir oppfylt..


Art can broaden our personal freedom, by extending the understanding of our choices, while it simultaneously increases human liveliness through the exploration of a more intense perception of colors, forms, sounds and values of the world we live in. In the field of psychology, even though the unsolved problem of defining the term exists, there is a dynamically increasing area, the psychology of art, which is characterized by the multitude of prospects and approaches that attempt to analyze and explain it.
Art Psychology is a scientific area that studies the perception, the knowledge and the characteristics of art. According to the general standards of art psychology, art can be studied through perception and through the processes that take place in the human brain. The fact that art functions in a cultural continuity, helps us attempt to analyze it. These are the general principles that guide most of the work in art psychology; that art can be studied by asking questions about our perception and that art operates in a cultural continuum that one can come to terms with, through the analysis of art.

 “Some people grumble that roses have thorns; I am grateful that thorns have roses.” 



Den som ikke tror og ikke håper, men gjennom egen innsikt ser det uskapte,
som bryter ut av kretsløpet og ikke lar seg forlede, han er den største blant mennesker. - 
Dhammapada


 
Yellow roses mean wisdom and joy.

Det kreative sinn

Det karakteristiske ved det kreative sinn er det motsatte av det reaktive. Det kreative sinn re-agerer ikke. Det er ikke avhengig av eller forutbestemt av de stimuli det kommer i kontakt med. Det er tvert i mot aktivt av egen kraft og fungerer spontant fra dypet av sitt eget vesen. Selv om det aktiveres av noe utenfor seg selv så går det raskt ut over dette utgangspunkt og begynner å fungere selvstendig. 

Det kreative sinn kan derfor sies å svare heller enn å reagere, det gir en respons heller enn blindt å reagere. Det kan til og med heve seg over betingelser helt og holdent. Mens det reaktive sinn i grunnen er pessimistisk og begrenset til den umiddelbare opplevelse, så er det kreative sinnet grunnleggende optimistisk. Dens optimisme kan allikevel ikke sammenlignes med den overfladiske optimisme du treffer på gata som kun er uoverveide reaksjoner eller rasjonalisering av behagelig stimulering. På grunn av det kreative sinn sin natur ville en slik reaksjon være umulig. 

Det kreative sinnets optimisme består på tross av ubehagelig stimulering og ugunstige forhold. Den består selv når det ikke finnes noen forutsetninger i det hele tatt. Det kreative sinn elsker når det ikke finnes noen grunn til å elske, gledes når det ikke er grunn til å gledes, skaper der det ikke er rom for å skape, og skaper på denne måten 'en himmel i helvetes håpløshet'.

Til sist er det kreative sinn mer enn noe annet et bevisst sinn. Ved å være bevisst eller snarere ved å være bevisstheten selv så er det kreative sinn intenst og strålende levende. Den kreative person er ikke bare mer bevisst enn den reaktive person, men også mer levende, mer vital. 

Denne vitalitet er ikke bare en dyrisk livlighet eller en overflatisk følelsesmessig overstrømenhet. Det er heller ikke simpelthen en intellektuell energi eller egoistisk viljeytring. Vi skulle kunne si at det er livsgleden (om vi kan tillate slike uttrykk) som springer frem som en fontene fra tilværelsens bunnløse dyp og levendegjør alt den kommer i kontakt med gjennom den kreative personen.
