It is not only in religion you meet those with a real fervour and mission for what they believe, I have equally met them in the circles of art. So I have one or two little guidelines I keep in mind, I call them my, “beware notes.”
Beware of those who they there way is the only way.
Beware of those with a good line in oratory.
Beware of those who are more interested in selling you DVDs and courses that being interested in your needs.
Beware of those who love to be surrounded by followers who admire them.
Beware of those who think one method is in and one method is out and puts down the outs.
Beware of those who never talk to you on anything other than a shallow level.
Beware of those who only ever tell you how wonderful you are.
But welcome with open arms those who give you an understanding of yourself and your journey. When I was young my mother was always telling me I had to do better or that I was doing something the wrong way. I had a father who was always asking me what I thought about things. When my mother berated me for not doing my best, my father would ask me, “Do you think you could have done better?” if I answered no he would say, “Well if you did you best that is great.”
How I loved being in his company. He certainly knew it was my journey and it was his job to just help me on it and the decisions I had to make. Since taking up art I have met all sorts of wonderful people willing to help me on the artistic journey but sadly I have also met many of the other sorts.
