Colouring Book for Adults A Best Coloring Book to Relieve Stress "The longer you look at an object, the more abstract it becomes, and, ironically, the more real." Lucian Freud Abstract art, like the kind in this coloring book, has a special and enduring effect on the human spirit. Art in general has always been integrally connected with spirituality and the transcendent. From time immemorial, epic stories, songs, and paintings have expressed and explored religious archetypes and helped people overcome and transcend the pain of living. In many ways, creativity takes us back home to a spirit realm that is infinite and powerful. Art is also profoundly anti-establishment and empowering-there have been countless artists who were blacklisted by governments and seen as a real threat to consensus trance and the status quo. Artistic endeavors open the heart and mind and help us remember who we really are. Modern art's roots are very spiritual in nature; many abstract artists saw themselves and their works as vehicles in which humankind could reconnect with their higher purpose. Abstract art expresses a reality that is beyond the material and helps us see things in a new way. And, like the quote above, the more abstract a work becomes, the more "real" it is. Scientists are discovering the fact that our known reality and the universe itself is pure projected consciousness and a hologram. Indigenous people knew this for centuries, and artists have too. Perhaps this is why the more abstract a work is, the more "real" it seems; maybe the truth is that what we see as real is truly unreal, and that there is more truth in myth than in a scientific report. It seems that abstract art helps connect us to this kind of magic; earth magic that our ancestors were completely immersed in. Abstract art became popular at exactly the time in history when there was a growing interest in mystical and occult teachings. Coincidence? We think not. Abstract art expresses what words cannot say. More than many other kinds of works, abstract art straddles worlds-the world of the common and the world of the spirit. Like shamans, artists came with messages for humankind from the otherworld. This coloring book is abstract in nature, which may help the reader "straddle worlds" as they create a beautiful new work from the skeleton of lines the artist drew. Recent research shows that coloring helps with blood pressure, calms, and soothes. Of course it does. It reconnects people to their innate creativity-an ability that can atrophy in the modern world. It is vitally important that people at this time explore their creativity, for in art there is freedom and an opportunity to gain wisdom from realms otherwise inaccessible. We hope that the quotes selected for each picture caption helps you access the creativity simmering within. And that, after you finish with this book, you consider your own artistic interest and talent, and follow them wherever they may take you.
