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.
