The internet is incredible. This tool allows anyone to be unbound by culture or the time they happen to be born in.
I am able to research other time periods and cultures from my living room and dive into the sounds of the 50’s while simultaneously enjoying the aesthetic of kimono fabric.
As this blog is both a personal growth platform for myself where I can build back the practice of writing, I also see this internet tool as a way to simply share what I love.
I didn’t know I had been collecting Philosophical Art until writing the respective post about the Crack Pot’s Opus brought that out of my subconscious. (This power to transfer that from the subconscious into the consciousness is something I enjoy about writing. I love learning about what I know that I didn’t know.)
I, therefore, wish to share what suppose it would be an anthology of all things beautiful, lovely, and or just splendid. Of course, what is shared is going to be beautiful, lovely, and splendid according to my individual filter. I cannot label something as such with someone else’s definition.
To illustrate, I half believe in the phrase “beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” I believe this phrase in the realm of tastes, but I believe the realm of tastes to be inside a larger intrinsic spiritual property that manifest, incarnates and transcends into our world. This property has real requirements to it.
There is an is, but what that is is is hard to say. The closest I can come to it in words is only long-winded odes that are more examples than an actual definition.
Yet, I will dance around the definition with examples hoping that in doing so the connotations will bring me to a denotation. Hopefully, the exemplars will help me define such a Virtue.
I adore the Virtues as I believe they are the identifiable characteristics of God. When I see it, I know. I feel God, but I also know that not all operate on the same frequency as I do (the realm of taste.)
I am curious to meet others who do see God’s transcendence through the same channels of beauty as I.
What are you like? Are we spiritual bosom friend? I want to use this wonderful internet tool to connect with others.
