We were born to be creative,
life exists to recreate itself,
it is the first rule of survival:
if you fail to multiply the life that you were given,
you will not be worth it.
But, this creativity can find so various expressions.
The most natural one is of course to reproduce,
to start a family creating children,
that is basic, easy and most down to earth;
but there are other ways and higher aims
more difficult and singular and more demanding,
such as concentrating on the spiritual world
and reproducing spiritual values like idealism
in art and literature, music and philosophy.
Such people are no good for ordinary life,
for raising children, for mundanity and practical concerns
but should be valued and encouraged for their higher aims,
the beauty of their insights and their visions;
for idealists are recreators of our future
making it worth while to live for
and especially when this our present seems so horrible,
unbearable, unhuman, hopeless and insane.
The dreams are our creative tools
wherewith the world and future always is remade
to make it better after all we constantly go through;
and only artists of a pure and honest heart
know how to dream them.
