The purpose of art isn't to shock or dishearten, to impress, to decorate, to mimic or to reflect -- but we've taken our creative capacity and used it towards those desolate ends because we've accepted a very deep lie without question. The lie is this: that we're separate from the power that animates the universe, that we're separate from love. The assumption flows from this premise that since we're detached from love, we can't know truth without reason or dogma to guide us. This assumption leads us to believe that our creative intuition can only be used for entertainment, reflection, and self-aggrandizement, not for revelation of real power. But revelation is the best fruit of our creative faculty."
