Merry Christmas! [a philosophical note]

One of God’s attributes is al-Khaliq (The Creator); thanks to Almighty, human is also granted with a share of this creative-imaginative ability. But the question is, if matter is gross (as considered in most neo-platonist philosophies), how can creativity be so deeply revered as it’s expression needs material? However, the expression sprouts from the intuition and mostly out of love, an experience which can transcend. No wonder the end product of any artistic endeavor is mundane if the observer does not realize the meaning and beauty it possesses; on the other hand, for artist it would always be special.

[25-12-11] Jesus is an artist for me with ethereal qualities. His art was love; he was created from and out of love, he embodied love and consumed himself through and in love.

One thought on “Merry Christmas! [a philosophical note]

  1. Very well written. Glory be to God who created this world which though we may see before our eyes, though me may see them at leisure and may study them extensively but we never do justice with our words to define its beauty. We can put colors and paints to sketch out the nature but can never produce the identical copy of the things exist around. Such a magnificent is this world from manifest universe to granules exist 🙂
