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.

Circus – dedicated to Sinéad O’Connor

What a circus. Time was when folks would pay to see the tattooed lady in a side show of the main event at a circus …. now the tattooists are the growth industry in every town and city. The bearded lady was in the show next to the tattooed lady, now she wins a global singing event.

Maybe our urge for freedom insists that the caged freedom of expression symbolised in those rare tattoos, that seemed so spectacular back then as the workers were being so exploited and controlled by rising capitalism, that they are now our shout, our badge of change.

Politics is then reduced to the former pantomime status and a parody of former presumed glory, with rare truth tellers like MPs Dennis Skinner, Martin Bell or Tom Watson often reduced by the media to side show notoriety. All the while International footballers are promoted to being global icons who are no more dexterous than acrobats of old music hall fame with most being lamentably less eloquent.


Five years after this post was written, I have inserted the following paragraph and Facebook post with video footage.

The above mentioned Tom Watson MP has become the Deputy Leader of the UK Labour Party. Donald Trump has become the President of the US and sends tweets out most nights.

Sinéad O’Connor has always been ahead of her time as this video statement of the abuse being hidden in the Catholic Church that she knew about, goes to prove.


Instincts that are non language specific are squitting out across global cultures as feeling powered knee jerk actions that reduce rational thought and conducted emotion as a quirky behaviour of the boringly sane.

Money supply in the hands of private concerns whilst governments run their franchised economies like the management teams of a Macdonalds: rule by short termism and policy made in a tweet.

The people are yet like an addled flock, craving leadership yet wild enough to vote for Barabus again – still dangerous, lost and lonely in the stuck-addiction© of yet another era shift.

Maybe like veteran pundit David Dimbleby who recently got his first tattoo at age 75, should we all similarly usher in the era change? Whatever integrates your shadow perhaps.

The spiritual leaders are asleep in the back of the multicultural boat. When the beleaguered crews get frightened enough, they will have to wake them up.

Some are wide awake already.
