Arts have a potential to cure tension and stress. They help us by making life aesthetic and meaningful in different ways. Let us explore how we can live more artistically in day to day existence.
The Arts are an integral part of our society. Art connects the mind and the soul. It comes from within. It connects us to the other life forms on the planet and also helps us find a deep cosmic connection with the universe at large. Art can’t be learnt in school at the fine arts class; it is born out of the true realization and experiences of the individual.
Art exists all around us-from music, writing a story, to composing music, to painting or in even leading one’s life in an aesthetic manner. One’s curiosity can find art almost everywhere be it in the shade of a tree or a flower that has just bloomed. One can obtain the degree of an artist or the certificates but the true genius of a true artist is not an encaged bird and is born in moments of spontaneity.
Art is a supreme realization that shapes the world. From Van Gogh’s painting to the poet’s imagination all its various forms have enriched the world bring and has brought the human civilization to a new height.
A report, published last month in London, includes hundreds of interviews and dozens of case studies showing how powerfully the arts can promote health and wellbeing. It asserts that “The arts can help people take responsibility for their own health and wellbeing in ways that will be crucial to the health of the nation.”During this research they found that 86% of patients felt music-making sessions – which included percussion and conducting – relieved their symptoms and improved their sleep.
Now days, art has lost its meaning. It is rare to find any kind of artistic sensibilities around us in times of hyper consumerist choices and preferences. While the arts have been turned into hobbies or recreational getaways it if becoming hard to find individuals who neither look at it as an escape root nor do they see it from a commercial angel. The idea that art is as much in living one’s own life aesthetically with simple resources and a contented being as much as in painting or dance has to be part of our socialization process. While arts need to be rescued from the claws of posh living rooms it is also important that in our own life we live artistically even while we may not be trained artists. Art after all is the basis of a meaningful, life-affirming and fulfilling education.
