“To construct an adequate philosophy of life is one of the aspirations of every sensitive and reflective human being.” (Fink 1). People create their own philosophys about life through the expiriences that they live through. These philosophys or reliogions are sometimes hindered by the view that society has. Society needs everything to be the same to be known as a “society of purpose.” These society’s of purpose are what I like to call the confusion of the real world. All the people in the society want everything to be happy and simply but if you singled out any one person they would have their different views on everything. These different views that the people have are called philosophys and are how the individual can express himself. The hard part about these philosophys are to find them, you are not born with them and just picking one makes your philosophy a fake. You have to discover what you believe in and break the grasp that society has on you and when this is succedded then you philosophy will be valid. TO make one of these valid thoughts you may preytel go on a journy of finding oneself, when pushed to the limits of ones mind only does the true thought come out. These journeys that I speek of do not have to stay in the realm of a physical jounry they may also go to the realm of expressing oneself through art. Art offers people the ability to say what they want to say in a way that words can not. The grasp that society has on you is taking the precious time away from revealing your thoughts and feelings through art. Time extracts various values from a painter’s work. When these values are exhausted the pictures are forgotten, and the more a picture has to give, the greater it is.
