To Meditate in Art…is an Art in itself
~To find the “Zen” place where your complete center reached, with all the thoughts of the mortal mind vanishing~
~To rest in the silence of creation, listening only to the breath filling and leaving your lungs~
~To see the mystical endless universe pouring onto the white slate you have prepared~
It is time to let the art take you away into this beyond peaceful state of meditation of art. There are many forms of meditate.
By Wiki definition to meditate is any form of a family of practices in which practitioners train their minds or self-induce a mode of consciousness to realize some benefit.
The history of meditation is intimately bound up with the religious context within which it was practiced.
I believe meditation is very important. I do not practice it traditionally or even regularly but I do find that while reading my Bible, creating art, writing, and being out in the woods I am able to mediate and have a mind clear of chatter. Mental chatter is a nuisance and distracting. If we can find more ways to Meditate, wether it be by artistically, religiously, or by nature it has more benefits that we could imagine.
Where and How do you “Meditate” or find the “Zen” in your life?
I welcome your input. I would love to hear how you Meditate in Art! 🙂
