School of love – create with joy

Molar King from art therapy class

It is good if everybody has a chance to talk, yet that only doubled the pain because nobody listened.
As we realize our problems as the misunderstandings, the conflict hurts doubly: the understanding of the meaninglessness of our passions colour up everything as the futility. That increased my despair and led to the hospital for people with the psychiatric disorders in Klaipeda. So I appeared in the art therapy class…Wow! Love was reigning there. The mental hospital was a school of love. I took my camera and became the participant of the class.

My eyes were captured by the Molar King freedom from the attachments means not the wings, but the blindness to the talents God gave to us.

Many are afraid to greet people with the psychiatric disorders, and such mindset hurts the most. It hurts not only the rejected but the world because the prejudices rob people of their freedom to smile and put them into the slavery to the cunning standards of beauty.

Life lessons are wasted if they are not passed on.

Art therapy relate to a mental health and so is the specific hospital activity that involves the patients with various disabilities, though we all could benefit from it. Art therapy visitors are the patients who didn’t name themselves the artists, they just pug the love… Is that not a dream of the humanity?
Let‘s look at the photo – The love melted into the ceramics there this time and brought a smile to my face. While looking at this waterbird I saw not a work but the embedded process of its creation and enjoyed the communication between the patients that could serve us all as a sample to follow. So I took a photograph of this creation. I don’t know its author, I do not know either the artist was he or she, but one thing is the obvious: people with the psychiatric disorders are the bearers of love .
They rarely have any other profession but is it obligatory to experience the happiness ?
