And a truly peace-full society is characterized by this dynamic dance of both practical and artistic creativity that nourishes the soul and elevates the spirit, sending a ripple effect of well-being throughout society
Peace, then, is not the goal, but the byproduct of an enthusiastic and creative society!
Peace naturally accompanies any golden age of artistic expression and joyful creativity. Who can imagine a society of people who are deliciously engaged in blissful creative expression, ever wanting to tear themselves away to step backward toward war?
Einstein noted that it was impossible to simultaneously prevent and prepare for war. And that is because we can only dance in one place on the creation/destruction continuum at any given moment.
So every single choice we make that supports creativity and the arts takes us one step further from war and destruction, and that much closer toward birthing a world full of peace, creativity, and joyful wellbeing.
