The Power of the Arts

The power of the Arts has been severely weakened as it has become entertainment or the vehicle for a message rather than the instrument for transformation. Plato described the Arts as food for the soul while gymnastics was food for the body. In the ancient world, the soul was deemed to live in the heart, which was not in the chest, but deep in the bowels or loins (such as in girding up the loins). The Arts were described as opening and then stimulating the heart, loins, or guts.
