My guest today is a fantastic human being, artist, and teacher named Shea Stanfield. Shea is author and publisher of the Starlight Scribe series, in which she highlights artists and their work, in an attempt to explore their sources of inspiration. Writing the stories of artists and their creative expressions is Shea’s way of celebrating the creative spirit and the artists who allow it to bring their vision to us. I truly enjoyed my conversation with Shea, and I hope you do as well.
In our conversation, we discussed art, religion, creativity, culture and the stories behind them, people being creative and how it influences culture, how our physical reality now could one day be seen as fiction, the conservative nature of society and the ones that break these conservative rules to progress, the sharing of stories and ideas can be the key to letting those thoughts manifest into something beautiful, the symbolism that’s been in human life that predates spoken language yet stays with us even now, spirituality vs religion, east and west, virtues and emotion, following the middle path, the great way, familiarity in rituals, cognition, patterns, prophets, evolving or not evolving, being told what IS and what ISN’T, taking information at face value, asking why?, mysticism, nature, the biggest equalizing force, mother nature always wins, natural disasters, the line between our abstract reality and our physical one, conflict, living harmoniously, community, individualism, compassion, the human image of god, god is energy, being human, love, stories through history, stories repeating themselves and stories in everything we do.
