The more we try to be positive it seems the worse our world gets.
Why? Ego is always motivated by desire for oneself, of happiness, money, beauty, fame, success etc. Ego thinks it is God. But in fact it is a recipe for spiritual death.
Doing positive acts towards others brings us out of our ego and closer to God. As does being able to scrutinize ourself realistically and change what needs to go.
So in the art world when we stopped being critical of art and life, it became dead.
Visual art became mickey mouse and a poem became kitsch.
Imagine being positive only when writing a poem.
"The deep crimson blood gushing from the beautiful cut impaled by my foot, sprinked red shiny drops on mossy green lawn creating a Pollock masterpiece." hahahahahaha
