What has happened to us that we imagine something only has worth if we can make money from it!
Do you realise that creating is a sacred act?
Even if what you create
isn't very good.
Even if it is crap.
And if you realise that you are in an act that is sacred, I dare you to try and make crap.
It may be unskilled; you may have a lot to learn; you may even be untalented - but it won't be crap.
Because even without skill or talent, if you create in the awareness that what you are doing is sacred, what you create will carry that.
No one may buy it.
No one may recognise what is carries.
But the act will change YOU.
And the fact that there is another sacred object, will change the WORLD.
This is why we would rather have an awkward card scrawled by a 2 year old than a 'perfect' card from Hallmark.
Art can be awkward and sacred.
Paintings can be perfect and dead.
Don't reduce the act of creation to selling.
Don't reduce the value of anything in your life that way.
