God is the divine artist and the universe is the continually evolving masterpiece of creation. -- Alex Grey
The mystical visionary experience is a personal love affair with God that convinces us of unity with Creator and Creation. A scientific view of our cosmos tells us that fourteen billions years ago there was literally nothing and then the universe came into being, that everything came from one thing. Connected with everything in the cosmos, we are simply the most current expression of a continuum. The force that birthed the cosmos lives as the creative urge in our souls. From algae to plant to animal, with 99.9999% of all previously existent life now dead, humanity is on the frothy edge of earth's biological breaking wave of consciousness evolution. The force some call God, created a cosmos in order to evolve beings capable of a conscious relationship with their Creator, mystics with the most advanced antennae for God's consciousness and communication.
Genuine creativity is not just a personal gift; it’s an evolving cosmic force that expands the identity of the individual beyond the bounds of body and ego toward a sense of oneness with a larger consciousness. Great works, from megaliths to pyramids to cathedrals, were built by creators aligning themselves with universal mind. Artists are the vehicles of expression for the cosmic intelligence. How can the aesthetic experience of art lead us toward a unitive mystical experience and activate inspired action in the world? What is the role of the artist in creating new levels of perception that can evolve individual and social awareness?
