Self Knowledge vs Self Expression
    #3139884 - 09/15/04 07:40 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

the "what's wrong w/ art" thread got me thinking...

which is more important,
the pursuit of Self Knowledge,
or the pursuit of Self Expression?

is one a prerequisite of the other?
is one a consequence of the other?

or is Self Realization a result of the pursuit of both?

I think the answer to this should be obvious...

You have to learn the part before you can act it, right? :smile:

Incase anyone prefers it spelled out:

Equally important. Self knowledge is a pre-requisite of self expression in my mind.

Hmm... quite intriguing.

Sometimes, I've contemplated a concept for so long, I feel I must express my findings or new knowledge in one way or another: a doodle, a conversation with someone, a song, a poem...

Other times, I've worked out internal strife, a new epiphany, new love, new technique, etc. by expressing how I feel (Diary, bitching at someone, a new song, flowers...)

They go hand in hand, IMO. I create from new ideas, and my creations spawn new ideas.

Hopefully, in my journey towards self-realization will I create something that I will learn from, or new knowledge from which I create, and these will fuel my soul.
