Leonardo da Vinci, is such an artist that you may know him or may not know him but still, everyone definitely knows what he has created – ‘Mona Lisa’, the greatest critically acclaimed ‘work of art’ on this planet. Even after hundreds of years since its creation, this painting remains, the center of attraction for all the art critics the world over.
But the art critics are definitely not staying over-night on their professional tables to know more and more about the artist / painter Leonardo da vinci. And rightly so. It is not needed …..as well. The work of art – Mona Lisa, is already in their critical hands and that is what matters the most.
However, what beats me is, when so much critical focus is devoted to the greatest work of art on this planet, why…..in the case of….the Greatest Marvel of art and science (combined), in this Whole Cosmos – the Creation itself – the position is reversed by the critics ( religion-leaders ).
In this case, the religion-leaders / Gurus ( I definitely don’t mean the ‘religious-leaders / Gurus’ ) are unanimous and the popular cry seems to be :
“don’t worry about the Painting ( the Creation ) but ‘find, fix and worship’ the Creator, the Leonardo (God )”.
These critics are the greatest conjurers / magicians / con artists on this planet. They have cast a spell on all of us and blinded us in such a way that we are unable to see and appreciate this ‘Work of Art’ especially so, when we ourselves are an important part of this Creative-Work, Created on an endlessly Long Canvas. The Creation is, an endless…. Performance…… by the Performer. Both ( Performance & the Performer ) are inseparable… especially, when the Concert is still on……. !!
The Creation itself is a proof (and we ourselves are a proof ) that the Creator has been there, is there and SHALL BE !!
Still, under a spell, the critics have convinced us that He needs to be ‘sought, achieved / attained and worshiped’. And surprisingly, in the same breath they tell us that He is……..Omnipresent !!
I am ready to ‘seek /attain’ the Creator but first, please…… teach me how to lose Him. You see I can’t. I am kind of stuck with Him Eternally. And surprisingly, although, I have never worshiped / prayed to Him, He still STAYS…… “Put”….like an ever adamant / loyal Spouse !!
I guess, this “finding Leonardo” is nothing personal, purely business – “their business”.
And these Critics are…….thorough professionals !!
