Creativity and Celebrity meltdown in the 21st century.

“Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.” Goethe.

“In order to succeed in such a creative act, a free flow of energy must be attained. The only way to attain a free flow of energy is to let everything out, including all the negative consciousness that is held in the blocked energy of the auric field. This is why many artists and writers are considered to be eccentric or to have unacceptable behaviour. They do not live in the mask self of socially acceptable behaviour. It is not possible to be creative and do so. In the movie Amadeus, the composer Salieri was appalled at Mozart’s outrageous behaviour and couldn’t reconcile it with the beauty of Mozart’s music. What Salieri didn’t understand was that Mozart’s way of keeping his creative force flowing was his outrageous behaviour. It was Mozart’s way of expressing his negative side.” p 150 Light Emerging by Barbara Ann Brennan

So, if the collective has either lost, or has never known the actual template that makes creativity manifest through men and women, then the current dilemmas that challenge the sensibilities of a viewing audience as icons of an entertainment industry face reputational collapse, perhaps become more comprehensible.

Clearly, history shows us all that Life combines atrocity and duplicity along with magnificence and beneficence to create the fabric of our perceived existence as Mankind. So, if Life combines these opposites in people and events how should actors and creatives not also conjointly work with almost irreconcilable forces of their very personalities as they try to portray their artistry for the entertainment of an audience?

There is need for boundary and law and prices must be paid as laws break, change and innovate. However, a deeper compassion and healing is called for as we all process events during these times of intense cultural atomisation and reformation.

In my experience, the mental animation of intellectual opposites can only be connected and expression repaired through a spiritual connection.

The Feminine forces of Grace and Fury are only held together in the hexagram of creativity by a husbandry that is truly connected to the reality of our mutual Matrix, lest the actual purpose of Beauty knowing Itself in the movement of Love be missed altogether.
