The Language of True Artists

 When you hang out in different art and entertainment circles around the world, you become aware of an unspoken code of ethics that universally exists between true artists. First, true talent is humble and often unaware of the magnitude of their own talents. Everything they do seems super easy to them so they don't measure their work in the same way as those who witness it. Two, the real artist does not feel the need to prove their talents. Again, everything just comes easily and naturally for them, and refined over time. And lastly, a true artist would never even think of stealing from another. The artist that feels they must copy to survive, or hang on to the successful name of another to develop their own, is NOT an artist. Imitation is never an issue to the creative evolving mind with boundless ideas and creativity which make up a real artist. The true artist is the one always imitated.

So be different. Being different and thinking different make a person unforgettable. History does not remember the forgettable. It honors the unique minority the majority cannot forget. And remember, original works of art cost exponentially higher than imitations. Just take a look at the the coolest people in history. They will always be a part of history for being extremely original individuals, not imitations.

So stay cool. True cool is an attitude that is projected from a person who is extremely comfortable in their own skin. Cool people have the ability to forge their own paths, stand apart from the herd, and not give a damn about fitting in. A person who is truly cool is a work of art. How can you create art or stand apart from the herd, if you yourself is not your greatest manifestation of art? Again, be yourself. An original is worth more than a copy.

And lastly, control your song. Our hearts resonate at the same frequency as the earth and the universe. Therefore, we are all valuable instruments in the orchestration of the world and its harmony. We must always be aware of the vibrations we emit individually and collectively. Always be in command of your music. Only you can control and shape its tone. If life throws you a few bad notes or vibrations, don't let them interrupt or alter your song.
