Art and creating go hand in hand. But, what is the difference between creating a mailbox and creating a sculpture? Or creating a design on a wall and painting a painting? Or creating a cake from the box or creating a cake from scratch? We all know there is a difference, just like creating a painting from scratch or following the rules that define the shape of an object. The difference is that one is contrived, and the other is not. One is an imitation, and the other is real. One is imperfect, and the other is not. One is heartfelt, and the other is not. One is loved because it is real, and the other is not.
The difference is that with one, you let go of all control and with the other, you do not. The difference is that it is a real painting and is in sync and can dance with the self. And, at the same time, it is in sync with the whole and able to dance with the whole.
