Not to mention ignoring Zen masters that teach about being with what is and leaving things alone, in other words STOP trying to live EGO first. Ego control leads to unhappiness only.
Today I actually heard an artist say while throwing buckets of paint on the canvas, "If you are not happy, there is no point in having a long life, better to have a short happy one." Tell that to the suffering, homeless and sick you uncompassionate moron I say!
No wonder we are embracing AI and robots, they are always feeling nothing! We idolize that in our mechanistic society, encouraged by billionaires who only want us to be their slaves!
It is also no wonder there is no respect for artists if all they are concerned about is getting their own jollies.
