Question: Can anybody manifest some form of art even if he does not have the sensitivity of an artist?
Sri Chinmoy: Yes, one can manifest some form of art even if one does not have the sensitivity of an artist. There are many artists who do not have any sensitivity but they draw quite well and do excellent work. It is like people in certain professions or vocations who have no liking for their particular field, but who are experts. They don’t have to be sensitive; they don’t have any feeling for their particular work. But they do it well, God’s Grace is working in and through them, but they are not conscious of it. So they do not get as much joy in their work.
Again, if an artist is sensitive, then naturally his art will be more soulful and more fruitful. Mother Earth and Father Heaven will deeply appreciate his kind of art, because consciously he is creating. And a sensitive artist gets much more joy in his creation than an artist who is not sensitive.
