Discovering Your Own Mysterious Sense of Importance

Discovering Your Own Mysterious Sense of Importance:

That which is teachable in art is teaching you about the importance of others: other artists, other works of art, others’ ideas on art. All that is taught about art winds up stealing your sense of importance and transferring it to the art establishment. It’s a strategy for empowering and enriching the art establishment. It’s seldom a strategy for discovering your own sense of importance. Which is what I hope my ideas help you to do.

The art establishment and art industry have their strategies for self-preservation and growth. So should you. You need a strategy for self-advancement, too. You need a strategy for advancing your sense of importance: your own sense of why your life is important: why life is important: why everyone’s life is important. Don’t let the art establishment and art industry dominate your thoughts, control your judgment and crowd you out of your own mind. They have their strategies for self-promotion. You need a strategy, too.

Craft is just a strategy for success. It’s a road map to success. Create your own strategies for success. Create your own treasure map. Map out the hidden sources of your own sense of how and why your life is important: why life is important: why everyone’s life is important. Everything taught about art is craft, i.e., the craftiness of others who want to steal your sense of importance. So develop your own craft. Get even craftier. Find your own personal sense of importance. Find your own personal methods and sources for discovering your life’s importance: your sense of life’s importance. Discover Life!
