Happiness is fragile, it frightens. It is associated with a form of inconsistency with creative inspiration and does not always sit well with artists. This is because suffering and torment give rise to chaos, a brewing place for creative forces. Would happy people be boring and unproductive?
Would misfortune be the only source of inspiration? Well looking at it more closely, it is interesting to note that the “Father-Daddy” human from the celestial polarities and rather open, has a wide predisposition to happiness from his/her strong taste for anticipation, vision and meaning. Conversely, the “Mother-Mommy” human from the Earth polarities and more closed, has a strong inclination to the present moment in its sensory aspect hence his/her ability to feel in his/her body, to breathe away from the mold and give birth from the liberating chaos, to the work of art. Strangely enough, it is through sharing his/her work and opening the world to exchange that the “Mother-Mommy” human being expanding into “Father-Daddy” accesses happiness.
