The Ultimate Art

Through the years I have learned to appreciate a variety of art forms. There is art to satisfy the senses, and affect the emotions. The visual arts such as paintings, sculptures, and photographs can stimulate our emotions by their beauty, or subject matter. Music can touch our hearts, make us happy or sad, and move us to dance.

Stage plays, movies, documentaries, etc. can affect all our emotions in various degrees and combine two or more of our senses. Excellent cooks are artists, and not just in deliciously satisfying our taste buds. They may also create a vision of beauty in the way they arrange the food on the plate, and the setting in which it is served.

Some people are artists in more than one medium. Most artists excel in only one. However, there is one form of art in which every single person on earth could be really good at…that is the Art of Relationships. Yes, it is true …a really good relationship, of any kind, is a work of art. Just like a painting, a sculpture, a musical concerto, a poem, a beautiful story…it takes time, a lot of care, imagination, devotion, and love to make it a work of art.

I believe the most beautiful and powerful art form in a human relationship is that of two people who are true soul mates, who complement each other (who balance each other), are best friends and intimates. They are two people who are mutually respectful, faithful, caring and loving. Two people who truly like and value each other. Together they are even better as one. The beauty and magic of this rare kind of relationship is so powerful as to affect others around them…creating peace, harmony and more love. This is the Ultimate Art, which we all should work toward and know we are very blessed when we attain it.
